About the holiday home

This idyllic holiday home is set on a very large plot of 10 000 square metres. It is set in magnificent surroundings, nearby two pretty little lakes, outside of the beautiful town of Gränna. The boat that is included in the rent is docked by one of the lakes. Set only 10 metres from the lake, with a spacious terrace facing it, this house offers a marvellous view.

The cottage features a partly covered terrace with a large grill for lovely barbecues in the outdoors. Inside you will find a cosy living room with a dining area, a wood burning stove, and a lovely view of the lake. The kitchen is very attractive and features a dishwasher, a washing machine and a tumble dryer. Above the kitchen there is a mezzanine. There is a lovely bath barrel, which can be heated, on the terrace.

Next door to the house there is a farm with a stable and possibilities to rent a pony for the children to ride on. They also have bunnies, cats, and bicycles for rent. Your children will really enjoy a visit! You can also buy eggs there. Those who like fishing will enjoy lake Sommen ( 30 km), Lake Ören (10 km) and Vättern (10 km).

The area offers a lot of activities and sights. Admire the scenic landscape with it's lovely walking paths and bicycle courses. This is a place that offers something for everyone.The picturesque town of Gränna is within walking distance, offering charming little shops and restaurants. Gränna is known for it's stripy, hard candy canes, “Polkagrisar”, and you can visit the small factory and see how they are made. Why not take a day trip to the charming island of Visingsö? There you can take a ride in a horse-drawn carriage all around the island. Other great destinations are Kolmårdens nature reserve and zoo, 100 kilometres from the cottage. There is also Astrid Lindgren's World (100 kilometres) which is a great place for those who enjoy the lovely children's books by Astrid Lindgren.

Welcome to wonderful Gränna!

About the area

About Jönköping

The northern part of Småland has a lot to offer e.g. culture treasurers and a great nature. A visit to the beautiful Visingsö is a must. Families should not miss the High Chaparell or the production of “Polkagrisen” i.e. the famous Swedish candy stick made in Gränna, which are fun activities for the whole family.

Vättern is the next biggest lake in Sweden, and at the annually held Vätternrunden, more than 15,000 people cycle round the lake. Vättern is, however, also famous for its many fish for instance chars, pikes, trouts and cray fish.

Take the ferry to Vissingsö which offers a beautiful nature, nice beaches and a royal history. Here the first royal castle was built in the year 1100. You can pay a visit to the garden or the Temple yard, Tempelgården, but most of all you can go by bike all over the island and explore all the nice places at your own pace.

You can also go back to Jönköping by ferry. Here there are a lot of activities to choose from. On sunny days you can go to Tabergs Topp, which has an exquisite view from the top to almost all of Småland, but it is also possible to study flora from the Alps. Walk down the mountain and buy fresh fish at the harbour. You can go to the popular sights e.g. The Johan Bauers Museum or the former military area, Regiment A6, which is now one of the largest shopping centres in Sweden. Nearby you will also find the tropical house, Tropikhuset, with its many tropical species. In the water park Rosenlund, you can have an excitingly adventurous bath or just a swim. Enjoy a concert in one of the best concert halls in Scandinavia or visit the Wild Western inspired amusement park, High Chaparell where you can meet Indians, cowboys and trappers. You can also wash gold, go on horseback or just enjoy some of the shows, for instance, Lucky Luke and the Dalton brothers, the saloon show or the fantastic stuntmen from Mexico.

The area outside of Jönköping offers sights such as Gripenbergs Castle, a wooden castle built in 1663, which also contains a museum, Säby kirke, a stone church from the 13th century, or the Kleva mine which is one of the most beautiful mines in Sweden with its long tunnels and big rock caves. Boda Borg is fairy adventure and activity house with different activities for the whole family.

Do you recall the escapades of the Swedish literary character, Åsa Nisse? The surroundings are inspired by Vetlanda where you can also find the Sollinska house and gold wash in Ädelfors. You can keep all the gold you can find! In Värnamo the whole family can gather around the car, music and toy museum. You can walk around the old town in Eksjö, enjoying the old wooden houses from the 17th and 18th centuries and their charming irregular location. It is really a town worth seeing. Another place of interest in Eksjö is the cleft in the rocks, Skurugata, which is 800 metres long with rock walls on both sides up to 35 metres.

Stay in Gränna, an idyllic village, and watch the production of the traditional Swedish candy sticks called Polkagrise. Go for a walk through the nice village and along the harbour and see the ruined castle, Brahehus, with its magnificent view to Vättern. Huskvarna on the opposite side has been built around the Husqvarna factory, but even though it has a lot to offer. There is a hiking path starting at the big water fall and leading to Ebbes bruk, but also the more than 300 years old Smith’s town is worth visiting. Here you can walk among the different artisan and artist work shops and forges to see how they lived and worked in the previous century. You could also visit the Arosfort where you will be met with different challenges.

About Sverige

Skerries, city or skiing in Sweden?

Experience the unique Swedish skerries. Rent a canoe or kayak and paddle among the thousands of small islands with raw and naked rocks or the bigger, forest-clad islands that are easy to reach from the main land.

If you are looking for a bit more adventure then take a trip to Gothenburg with the amusement park Liseberg with fun for the entire family. Stockholm is the place to go, if you love a city with beautiful nature, lots of history, culture and beautiful, world class design. If you are looking for an active winter holiday in Sweden you will find both cross-country and alpine skiing in the Swedish mountains.

Holiday home in the Swedish nature

All of our holiday homes in Sweden are surrounded by the scenic Swedish nature. DanCenter has numerous options across Sweden from Skåne, Småland, near Stockholm and in the Swedish skerries north of Gothenburg. Sweden is a country full of oppositions and therefore also full of opportunities for a holiday suited just right for you and your family.

Do you want to experience Sweden through the eyes of the children's author Astrid Lindgren? We can offer you the classic Swedish holiday home experience. Book an authentic, cosy, small, red wooden cabin on the edges of a pine forest along a beautiful lake in open country side. Your holiday in a traditional cabin in Sweden can help you reduce stress and forget all your troubles.

Go on a luxury holiday in Sweden

As a contrast to the idyllic cabin in Sweden you can also book a lovely, big holiday home. DanCenter offers different luxury holiday homes with room for the entire family. In Sweden we have big holiday homes fitting the entire family or groups up to 20 people. These include houses with swimming pool and whirlpool that you can enjoy both during summer or winter. Take a dip and cool off with your family on holiday in Sweden and the sun shines from a clear sky. You can also enjoy the warm water and a glass of champagne in the outdoor whirlpool on a cold winter's night. Or during the autumn break when the children splash in the pool and you enjoy the beautiful views of the colourful leaves falling from the trees.

Sweden is water, water and water

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 is a hit with the active family

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. Afterwards you have lots of room for social intercourse, fun and games as well as instructive activities for the entire family. The Swedish mountains provide plenty of opportunities for skiing during the winter. Sweden has lots of family-minded ski resorts. If you have booked a holiday home near the cities Stockholm, Malmø and Gothenburg, you will find plenty of activities. Bring your family to the zoos, amusement parks, museums and more.

Experience Sweden's mighty forests

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.

Midsummer in Sweden

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.
