What did you especially like about the holiday house?
“Es handelt sich um ein kleines altes Bauernhaus mit großer Wohnküche, in der auch noch ein alter gußeiserer Husqvarna-Herd steht - neben dem E-Herd, versteht sich. Das Badezimmer wurde nachträglich eingebaut und hat zwar kein Fenster, aber eine Lüftung, so dass wir keine Probleme mit Feuchtigkeit hatten. Da das zweite Doppelbett im Zimmer auf dem Dachboden steht und nur über eine enge Treppe und über den nicht renovierten Dachboden zu erreichen ist, zog unsere Tochter es vor, im Bett in der Stube zu schlafen statt oben. Da wir uns eh in der Wohnküche aufhielten und die Stube gar nicht als solche benutzten, war das auch kein Problem. Die Vermieter sprechen Englisch und sind sehr hilfsbereit, wir durften sogar ihre Fahrräder für Ausflüge kostenlos leihen. WLAN ist vorhanden - während unseres Aufenthalts wurde Glasfaserkabel verlegt, es müsste inzwischen also richtig schnell sein. Das Ruderboot liegt im Bootshaus, dort kann man auch schön am Ufer sitzen und das Wasser genießen. Es sind Schwimmwesten - sogar eine für einen Hund - vorhanden. Der Fährhafen Grisslehamn ist nur 8 km entfernt, von dort kommt man in zwei Stunden mit der Fähre auf die Aland-Inseln und kann dann mit Bus nach Mariehamn fahren - ein schöner Tagesausflug. Uppsala und Stockholm sind nach 1 bzw. 1,5 Stunden Fahrzeit erreichbar und sehenswert.”
Recommendations for future guests
“Man kann quer durch den Wald zur Ostseeküste rübergehen (ca. 4 km) abends bietet sich eine kleine Radtour z.B. Richtung Nothamn Hafen an- dort ist dann sehr wenig Verkehr und man kann Füchse, Rehe, Eichhörnchen, Hasen und mit etwas Glück sogar Wildschweine beobachten. In Norrtällje sollte man nicht nur der Supermärkte wegen hinfahren (wobei der ICA in Elmsta auch schon sehr gut bestückt ist), sondern sich auch das gemütliche Stadtzentrum anschauen. In Grisslehamn kann man am Hafen in den Fischläden super Fisch einkaufen. Am Nordende des Dorfes ist auch ein ICA, dieser ist aber ziemlich klein.”

“Elchpark Gardsjö, Uppsala, Norrtälje, Stockholm / Die Fahrt mit der Fähre von Vaxholm nach Stockholm ist günstig und dauert länger als eine Schärenrundfahrt in Stockholm.”

“Idyllisch gelegen, mitten im Grünen.”

About the area

About Stockholm

Renting a chalet in Stockholm

Renting a chalet close to Stockholm has many benefits. Stockholm, with its islands and surrounding water, is one of the world's most beautiful capital cities, and there is always something to do here. Take a stroll among beautiful historical buildings, visit one of the city's many cultural attractions, enjoy a delicious meal at a restaurant or spend a day with the family at Skansen or Gröna Lund. Renting a chalet in Stockholm provides an endless array of possibilities. There are chalets for rent throughout the entire area, enabling you to choose between Dalarö and the surrounding area, the Mälaröarna islands including Ekerö and Drottningholm, Värmdö, Salsjöbaden and many other beautiful locations that are ideal for spending your holiday time when you are not visiting the city or on an excursion in the lovely archipelago.

The Stockholm archipelago and Roslagen

If you prefer peace and quiet and nature rather than the hustle and bustle of the big city, Stockholm also has an incredibly beautiful archipelago with more than 30,000 islands. Renting a holiday cottage here allows you to go swimming, sailing, canoeing and fishing, or why not enjoy one of the many boat tours available in the archipelago. Via us you can book accommodation for a couple of days, a week or even longer, depending on your holiday plans. The choice is entirely yours! We have options to suit all tastes and wallets – from classic holiday cottages to luxury villas – regardless of whether you want to stay close to the heart of the city, in the Stockholm archipelago, on the Mälaröarna islands, in beautiful Roslagen with Blidö, Gräddö and Väddö, or in Öregrund.

Holidaying in Stockholm

Stockholm is a city of contrasts - water and land, history and future, small town and big city, short winter days and long summer evenings. Stockholm is one of the most beautiful capital cities in the world. Stockholm is built on 14 islands, and its location between Lake Mälaren and the Baltic Sea means that it is surrounded by water, hence the large number of bridges in the city. An ever popular and much appreciated excursion is to see Stockholm from the water as the boat passes under the city's many bridges.

Lake Mälaren offers year-round fishing for those looking to land a pike, zander or perch. For anyone looking for an active holiday, it would be difficult to find a better destination than Stockholm. Sailing, canoeing, hiking, fishing ... not to mention the many passenger boat tours that operate in the archipelago. Jazz concerts, art exhibitions, dance performances and a large selection of theatres. There are a couple of hundred events taking place in Stockholm on a daily basis. We also recommend a visit to Skansen, which is much more than just an open-air museum. At Skansen you will also find a zoo and an aquarium. The Gröna Lund amusement park is also well worth a visit. There you can choose from more than 30 rides and attractions - or why not try them all!

30 km to the north-east of Stockholm you will find the Roslagen archipelago, with almost 13,000 islands! For only a small fee you can purchase an island-hopping boat pass and spend a few days exploring Roslagen, and the rest of the Stockholm archipelago, at your leisure. A short journey on the Roslagsbanan commuter rail line will take you from Stockholm to your departure point. Norrtälje is the main town in Roslagen and provides an idyllic setting with authentic Swedish architecture. Visitors come here to enjoy the many shops, bars and cafés, arts and crafts, events and museums - all year round!

We have chalets for rent throughout the entire year. For many, renting a chalet close to Stockholm is a more enjoyable and relaxing, and even a more active way of spending a holiday that combines the attractions of the big city with the wonderful nature of the surrounding area.

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.
