Welcome to this modern and cosy holiday home in Vreta, Östergötland! The cottage is situated between the channel Göta Kanal and a pretty little lake. The surroundings are beautiful and you will be close to the lakes Roxen, Boren and Vättern. If you wish to go fishing, dont forget to buy a fishing license!
The kitchen and living room are open plan. The comfortable living room features a TV and two extra beds (a sofa bed). The mezzanine features another two extra beds. Please note that the ceiling height is rather low.
The area offers a lot to do and the nature here is outstanding, with its open landscape! One of Swedens biggest lakes, Vättern, is within driving distance. The picturesque town of Gränna offers charming little shops and restaurants. Gränna is known for its 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.
Another great destination is the old, picturesque town of Vadstena, set right by lake Vättern. Vadstena was once up for becoming the capital of Sweden, before Stockholm was chosen. King Gustav Vasa built a castle here in the middle ages and it still stands today, in excellent shape. There are also several beautiful old churches you can visit, and a convent where the Birgitta-sisters live. This is the town that Saint Bridget is from and it offers plenty of culture and historical sites. Outside of Vadstena you will also find a great beach with a small, outdoor waterpark, Varamo.
Between Ödeshög and Vadstena you will find the ruins of the monastery Alvastra Kloster, set in beautiful surroundings right by the mountain Omberg. Omberg is well worth a visit for those who love walking in beech forests.
If you wish to visit larger towns you can drive to Linköping and Norrköping. In Linköping you can visit the picturesque old town which offers plenty of things to see and do. Dont forget to pay a visit to the candy factory in Ljungsbro!
Please note: You have to climb a steep ladder to access the mezzanine!
