Welcome to Öland and this nice and bright cottage near the harbor and the beaches in Byxelkrok. You have only 500 meters to the water and you quickly reach the beautiful beaches on foot. The house has a large lovely terrace with outdoor furniture where you can enjoy the sun. Part of the terrace is under a roof, where you can enjoy in the shade of something cooling to drink or relax with a good book. If you want to explore the island, there are 4 bicycles at your disposal, maybe you take a trip to Bödabukten with its unbeatable kilometers of sandy beaches.
The house, which is on one level, has an open kitchen / living room, a bedroom with two beds that can be put together into a double bed, a bedroom with a bunk bed and a bathroom with toilet and shower. You have a large lovely lawn around the house, why not challenge each other on a batch of "Kubb"?
To the center of Byxelkrok it is only 400 m, here is incredibly beautiful, a true holiday paradise and you can enjoy strolling around in the small shops down by the boat cabins. Here you can enjoy a piece of food and good drinks in one of the many restaurants. Or why not bring an ice cream to enjoy away on the wonderful pebble beach with its beautiful headland. Here it has become a bit of a tradition to enjoy the sunset.
To the south along the water you will find a lovely sandy / pebble beach with a bathing jetty, where you can swim. If you want more privacy and let the eye enjoy, there are wonderful, desolate pebble beaches even further south. You only have about 5 km to Bödabukten and Böda Sand which suits those who want more activity. For a little calmer beach stay, Lyckesand and Homrevet are suitable.
You have a wide range of leisure activities nearby: Golf, horse riding, mini golf, fishing on the shores of the Baltic Sea or from fishing boats. Many arts and crafts exhibitions, farm sales, museums and the famous Viking village attract many visitors to Öland. Other attractions are Borgholm's castle ruins, the lighthouse Långe Erik and the limestone formations at Byrum Sandvik and Neptuni fields and Trollskogen with its Naturum are all worth a visit. On the opposite mainland, Kalmar with its castle and the famous old town is a popular destination. Blå Jungfrun, an island between Oskarshamn and Öland with a large labyrinth, is well worth a day trip

Sweden has been admitted to UNESCO's list of world heritage for its unique coastline. Middle and north of Sweden have countless rivers, lakes and streams criss-crossing the country. Sometimes you get the feeling that the country is swimming with only forests and fields acting as links between rivers and lakes. This is particular noticeable for the middle part of Sweden where the ice age left plain tracks. Thousands of lakes fill the gorges created when the ice retracted to the North.
At the exact place where the river Mälaren with fresh water meets the salt water from the Baltic you will find Stockholm spread across 14 islands and islets. But there is more: The Stockholm skerries just a few minutes sailing from the capital is comprised by a total of 24.000 islands and islets.
The Siljan lake is located in the middle part of Sweden called Dalarna. The lake and the surrounding towns are regarded as the historical centre of the country. From here, Sweden gradually becomes more raw and deserted. In Norrland, the only sound you hear in the enormous forests is from the roaring rivers.
For centuries, the rivers have been used for transporting logs to the coast. And where the rivers flow into the ocean is where the first settlements were founded several thousands of years ago. Höga Kusten in the north-eastern Sweden is permitted on UNESCO's list of world heritage for its unique coastline.
Sweden has countless activities for children, young people and old people. It all starts when you book a holiday home or a cottage in Sweden, so the entire family has a god basis.

Sweden has beautiful forests from north to south. To the south, in Skåne and Småland, where DanCenter can offer you a big selection of holiday homes and cabins, you will find the hardwood forests. This area is also known for its moose-safaris, a unique nature experience. Such an experience is a guarantee for talks when you return to the holiday home or cabin. Småland is also perfect for bike rides, horseback riding, canoeing and fishing.
If you have booked a holiday home in the middle or northern part of Sweden, you will find the landscape dominated by deep valleys, plateaus and vast fir and pine forests. Here you can bring your family berry and mushroom picking, enjoying the beautiful flowers in the spring or the may different colours of the leaves in the autumn. Take a refreshing dip in the forest lake and catch a fish for dinner. While the children play in these beautiful settings, mum and dad can prepare the freshly-caught fish in the open-concept kitchen and the grandparents can relax with a glass of wine on the sofa. If you have plans of going to Sweden, book a holiday home with DanCenter Holiday Rentals.
The midsummer party in Sweden is truly unique. To many it is a symbol of the lightness, the light and the life force symbolic of the Nordic summer. Midsummer in Sweden is the biggest celebration of solstice in Scandinavia.
When the most Swedish of Swedish parties approach, the whole country is exited. Midsummer is traditionally a feast celebrated with family and friends, but if you are a tourist you are welcome to join the festivities. It is celebrated all over the country - by the coast, in the skerries, by idyllic lakes, in the mountains or one of the islands. All is good, as long as there is plenty of pristine and diverse nature around.
