Restored vicarage

In the wilderness of the province of Östergötland resides a fantastic hotel. Amongst lakes, meadows and forest and only a 3 hour drive southwest of Stockholm, an old vicarage has been lovingly restored. Being away from stress and responsibilities of everyday life, you will be able to relax and enjoy nature and tasteful, locally produced food. Enjoy your meals in the homely decorated dining room with an open fireplace, on the summer porch or by the lake.  There is a wide selection of wines and other alcoholic beverages as well as nonalcoholic alternatives to be served with your meal or whilst relaxing in the lounge. This hotel, situated close to lake Sommen, is especially suited to couples and families with teenagers or adult children.

There are 16 hotel rooms, decorated in a charming country style, related to the history of the building. Many of the rooms, divided over two buildings, have a view over the fields and lake. Some rooms are accessible for people with limited mobility.

A large, beautiful garden surrounds the hotel and a television can be found in the common lounge. The area in which the hotel is situated has a lot to offer for nature lovers and people who are seeking relaxation whilst enjoying delicious food. You can rent bikes, go on a canoe adventure or go hiking. Why not spend an evening in one of the two wood fired hot tubs?

You can also book one or two amazing glass houses situated in the forest and with lake view (special package available, contact me for more information). Who is not dreaming of sleeping in the wilderness under a sky filled with stars? This is an experience beyond the ordinary. You can only reach this place after a 6 km hike through soft forest paths and over steep, rocky hills. A canoe is at your disposal. Revel in silence whilst paddling in the magnificent lake or listen to the choir of bird songs. Why not take a dip in the lake before sunset when it is time to light the fire and prepare your meal.
