Our specially designed Summer House in Flatön on the beautiful West Coast of Sweden was build in 2015. The place is perfect for family holidays or get aways with friends. Only one hour drive from Guthenburg, or two and a half from Oslo, it is easily accessed from many places.
The property is at the seaside, only five minute walk from the harbour. The house is spacious and atmospheric, with a uniqe style that blends modern interiour with old, rustic charm. The main house has a high ceiling and a big open kitchen / lounge area with a fireplace, master bedroom, bathroom, and a spacious loft. We have a small annex with two separate bedrooms with double beds. In total we have four separate bedrooms, but the whole place can sleep ten people - and if you don't mind it getting a bit crowded, as many as twelve.
The huge outdoor area is perfect for the kids to play all day long, with a big trampoline and a football field. The garden is also ideal for outdoor meals, barbequeing, reading in the hammock, and late night fireplace drinking wine and looking at the stars.
The whole place is entirely at your disposal during your stay. There are no neighbours in sight, so feel free to enjoy the privacy this uniqe place offers.
In addition to the house and outdoor area, you can upon agreement use our inflatable boat which is available in the harbour only five minute walk from the property. The fjord and the islands in the area are perfect for days out and offer great activities such as fishing, picnicing, swimming and sun bathing.
We will welcome you to hand over the keys and to answer any questions you might have about the place. We'll do our best to accommodate the needs you might have. During your stay you'll have the whole place all to yourself.
The house has water and electricty and heating. The water comes from a well, and is ok for most purposes, but not recommended as drinking water. We use it in food when cooked first. Please note that the water resources are somewhat scarce, so its not room for endless showers. Update, summer 17: water shortage over large parts of Sweden, this also goes for Flatön. The water quality is not the best, and the water can be tainted light brown in periods (due to small amounts of iron in the ground around the well, testes and found acceptable).
The property is on an island, and you need to take a short ferry trip from the mainland to get here. The ferry only takes 5 minutes, it's freee, and it goes three to four times every hour all day and night (except from 2am-4am). From the ferry it's only a five minute drive to the property.
The nearest super market is near the ferry (in total 10-15 minutes to get there from the house)
