An Idyllic Swedish Summer Cottage That Dreams Are Made Of!

Say the words 'Swedish summer cottage' and I immediately conjure up a picture of a little red and white cottage surrounded by lush, vibrant nature and somewhere to bathe a short "nakenfis" (I love this Swedish word - it literally translates as 'naked fart' but it's generally used to describe being nude!)  sprint away!! In fact, this idyllic croft in a village near Tierp an hour or so North of Stockholm is spot on! Dating back to 1909, the croft is made up of a main house and a series of little outhouses which wouldn't look out of place in Astrid Lindgren's 'Children of Noisy Village'. Step inside and you're greeted with white wood panelled walls, pretty wallpaper and painted wood floors. The furnishings are typically understated and a perfect blend of vintage and antique pieces. Ready for a little Swedish summer dreaming? 

Oh wow. This has me dreaming of 24 hour sunshine, morning dips and long, lazy lunches alfresco! 

Could you image wiling away a lazy summer here?

This is where I say - "well, it could be yours..." - and it was actually on the market for a very reasonable 750,000 SEK (€70k / $76k) via Länsförsäkringar (try pronouncing that!) but as you can  imagine, it was snapped up immediately! 

Up for a little more Scandinavian summer cottage dreaming? Pull up a chair and enjoy:

Actually, do you know what? I think I'll just share the link to the entire archive - there are hundreds of charming summer cottages in there from all across Scandinavia. And since it's a public holiday here tomorrow I hope it will tie you over until I return on Monday! 

Wishing you a wonderful long weekend friends - stay safe, stay well!

  1. Oh, man! Just looking at the pictures was a treat, let alone being there. The wallpaper and that kitchen are really beautiful but the setting is stunning.

  2. I could happily live out my days in a place like this!

  3. Beautiful cottage and so inspiring of wonderful daydreams as I work from home. I own the book "Christmas in Noisy Village" but didn't know there were other books in the series-thanks for that as well. Fun to see how others live and vacation! Thanks so much!

  4. As soon as I saw the first photo of the interior, a big Awww escaped from my mouth. The wallpaper is so incredibly charming and it completes the white interior while remaining very soothing to the eyes.
    I am not so fond of the other wallpaper in the kitchen but the first one is absolutely precious.

  5. What a traditional and elegant looking house! I smelled the freshness of the environment just by looking at the photos. For me, this is truly the best place to spend the summer.

  6. Ah, dreamy is the only word to describe this special place! I love all the photos. :)

  7. Simply Awesome <3

    A beautiful place to spend some lovely days with your loved one. It's a dream come true for me if I ever get a chance to be there at least for a day. Considering I'm currently living in Dubai working as a nanny, it's going to be a dream forever :)

  8. I cannot get over those floors! I love that grey and white diamond pattern so much. I'm having my wood floors refinished this week by <a href=">Fabulous Floors Cleveland</a> and I definitely need them to at least match one of those colors when they stain them. Thank you so much for sharing.
