We spent two weeks in this beautiful vacation rental. The house is secured, very clean and well-lit, capacious yet cozy with its big windows and the comfortable chaise longues in the living room and upstairs, where we spent most of our evenings. In the spacious living room, there is a lot of entertainment equipment, including a vinyl player with a great sound system and a projector which we both used frequently. Upstairs, there is a TV with a huge selection of DVDs.
Also, three children’s/teenager’s bedrooms are located upstairs, along with a second bathroom, which made it possible for the two teenagers to also spend time on their own. Furthermore, the house offers a collection of books (in Swedish and English) and some parlor games. The garden is very pretty, and also the outside made well spent family time possible, offering a trampoline, a table tennis set, a weber-gas grill and garden furniture.
The house is located at the beginning of a small settlement which could be explored both by feet and car. A few minutes of walking away, there lays a small park which can be crossed within quarter an hour but offers truly stunning views of the fields surrounding the village. Within a 20-minute walk or a short car drive, one can reach the big lake with wharves and benches to sit on, enjoy the landscape and have a picnic.
Another destination not far away from the house, located along the way to Örebro, is the natural reserve (on the left side of the road, if you’re driving to Örebro). Here, you can go on beautiful hiking tours (without having to be afraid of getting lost since the trails are clearly visible and/or well-signposted) with amazing views.
The city of Örebro lays a car drive of 10-15 minutes away. In Örebro, you can find not only a good number of supermarkets like ICA or Willys, but in the city center there is a shopping mall with a lot of clothing stores, two shopping centers, book stores, restaurants and small cafes and a small castle surrounded by a small lake. It is the perfect place to spend some time. For other recommendations for activities near Örebro, some brochures with helpful information can be found in the house itself.
To reach the city of Stockholm, we had to drive two hours, but we’d say that the city is definitely worth the effort.
All in all, we can only thank Mr. Fintling for offering us such a beautiful vacation and the possibilities of easily contacting him at every time. We would definitely like to return some time.
