Surrounded by lush forests and lakes, this pink house on a hill is the perfect holiday home for families with children, a group of friends, or couples seeking to relax in a soothing natural landscape.
This original and cozy country house lies in the lake and forest lands of southern Sweden. It is an original Swedish "sommar stuga" that has been refurbished with the amenities of a modern house and can sleep up to 6 people. It lies next to a forest
in a beautiful green setting by lake Bjärlången (approx. 150 yards / 100 m away), with a rowboat for five people. It is the perfect place for someone seeking a cozy nest away from the bustle of big towns, but still close to service and comfort. My
family has lived and traveled through many places and this house has always been our base so the interiors are furnished and decorated with artifacts and artwork from all over the world. There is also an extensive library with tons of books in different
languages with genres and topics of every kind. The house has a big garden (perfect for playing croquet or badminton) with an outdoor seating area, a wooden swing sofa, a hammock, and last but not least a barbecue grill in the shape of a giant mushroom with baby mushroom seats !!! This house is truly special and with plenty of indoor
and outdoor activities, it is suitable for all seasons and makes the ideal holiday home for families, a group of friends, or couples seeking a quiet retreat in nature.
The house is approximately 150 sqm. and has 3 bedrooms and a guest house:
- MASTER BEDROOM with a double bed and a large adjoining bathroom equipped with a bubble bath and underfloor heating.
- ROOM WITH PANORAMIC VIEW with a single bed and a sofa bed. This room also has an activity table and toys for children.
- SINGLE STUDY ROOM with a single bed and a desk space.
- DETACHED ONE-ROOM GUEST HOUSE with single bed, built-in kitchenette (stove, fridge and freezer) and mini veranda. Perfect for teenagers or additional guests.
Each room has a built-in heater that is independently regulated and temperature controlled. The house has a large living room with a dining table that accommodates up to 8 people. There is also a fireplace in the living room and a fireplace in the glass-enclosed veranda. The veranda looks out over the garden and it also has electric heating so it can be used all year round. The house has a fully equipped kitchen (stove, oven, fridge, freezer, microwave, coffee maker, dishwasher) with a small adjoining dining area. There is also an external dining area in the garden behind the house. There is a bathroom near the entrance with a standing shower, WC, washing machine and dryer. There is also an outdoor shower for hot summer days. The house has its own private jetty by the lake for sunbathing and jumping in the water. There is also a rowboat (life vests available for 2 children and 4 adults) and a picnic table next to the lake for lunch or "fika" break. Guests have fishing permission for the lake and some simple fishing rods are provided. If you would like to fish seriously though, we recommend you bring your own equipment! There are also 3 adult bicycles and one children's bicycle available. For winter time activities there are 3 "pulkas" (sledges) available and plenty of wood for the fire places. There are also two small houses in the garden behind the house, one of them is a wood-workshop ("snickarbod"), but at the moment these are not accessible to guests as we are using them for storage.

This is my family's holiday home but most of the year my family and I live elsewhere. My grandmother lives in a nearby town and I have relatives and friends in the area who help look after the house and guests while my family and I are away. Guests who stay at the property are welcome by our friend Alf, given the keys and shown the property and the different facilities they can enjoy during their stay, including the lake, the boat, etc. We expected guests to live independently during their stay, treating the place respectfully as their own. During guests' stay there is a contact person in Bjarnum village who is also available for any queries guests may have or in case of emergencies. We also send guests an information note with detailed directions on how to get to the house, things to do during their stay, important telephone numbers including our cellphones for any queries or information. Our aim is that the people who visit our home have a smooth arrival and a wonderful stay.
This house is very special to me and my family and we are happy we can share the experience of this wonderful place with others!
Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or would like further information. We have plenty of tips and advice to give to first time visitors to Skåne and hope you will choose to visit this very unique and special part of Sweden :)
Strictly no smoking indoors.
Dogs are welcome but should not enter the house, they are allowed to stay in the glass veranda.
Cats are not allowed.

I am not very good at writing about myself in few words... I believe each person deserves a book at least! But here is my attempt at a **short** introduction ;P
I'm half Swedish half Dominican. I grew up a bit all over but my home town by choice is Prague. I came here to study scenography two years ago and fell in love with this city, now I don't want to live anywhere else!
I love travelling, seeing new things and meeting new people. Really it is what inspires me most in my life and in my work. Journeys of every kind fascinate me and I'm always keen to learn something from every experience that I have. Whenever I am on my travels somewhere, I am full of energy and impressions and I wish there was a peaceful place I could retreat to as I like being alone sometimes, to draw and think and digest the newness of it all... That is the kind of space I wish to offer my guests :)
I am a very curious person and I love hearing stories, myths and legends about the places that I visit. I am also a bit of a hoarder and I love collecting books and postcards and other things that remind me of places and people I have met.
Here are 5 things I can't live without:
chocolate, sun, water, other people and my imagination.
My favourite books and movies are too many to name and I listen to music of every genre.
I think I am a pretty tolerant person; I am always open to discovering new things, but sometimes I am called a snob because what I like I really like and what I don't like I detest!
If I had a life motto, it would be this:
"As I can only be in any one place at any one time I am exactly where I am supposed to be."
This thought is very comforting as it means we are never lost and then it is easy to make the most of any situation!
