Your own little fisherman's cottage on Sweden's west coast?

We're slowly touring the beautiful Swedish west coast - namely the Gothenburg archipelagos. It's a really special place for my husband and I since it's where we met. The waterways are dotted with little fishing villages with bright coloured 'fiskebodar' (fishing huts) and clapboard cottages perched on the rock face. Yesterday we visited picturesque Smögen where, the boardwalk bustles with people shopping, or buying fresh seafood by day. And by night it comes alive with restaurants and bars with live bands. If you're a party person, it's a must! But what's behind the doors of those little old clapboard fishing cottages? As you've guessed, many of them are just as charming on the inside. Here's a tour of a little white cottage in the heart of Smögen dating back to 1830....

Oh so charming! How wonderful would it be to have a little cottage like this to go to in the holidays? Your dressing gown hanging in the hall ready for that daily dip?

Get the look: I like this industrial pendant (keep an eye out for others here). Retro kitchen storage. Source a Swedish rag rug here (IKEA also sells them). 

You can see more pictures of this lovely cottage and the village of Smögen here

If you fancy touring the islands next summer here's a guide to some of the islands and places to stay. One of these days I'd like to create my own guide as there are just so many hidden gem!

We're heading south now (sniff sniff), and wifi might be a little touch and go. I'll do my best to post Friday but bear with me! 

Have a wonderful couple of days!

PS I also love this traditional Swedish cottage also near Gothenburg and this fisherman's cottage on the South coast. One day....  


  1. Hej! This fisherman's cottage looks so cozy! I'd love to visit this area and sleep in this charming house! Best regards from Barcelona, Spain,
