Ever wanted to get away from it all? Do a spot of fishing? Doing nothing but listening to the silence? Take the boat for a spin to buy an ice-cream across the lake? Have a sauna followed by a dip in the lake and an ice cold beer? Relaxing on the decking, watching the sun go down across the lake?
Our cottage in the middle of Sweden in the county
might just be what you are looking for!!
Our Sauna by the lake is the perfect place to unwind after a hard days golfing or swimming. A great place to watch the sun go down in the evening whilst sipping a glass of wine. The custom in Sweden is to have a sauna and then to have a dip in the lake. Well, the Swedes do it "au naturelle", how do you do it?
