Stockholm villa description

Villa Ekbacken gives you the best of two worlds - both the the possibility to explore Stockholm and surroundings and a peaceful living in the midst of Stockholm’s magnificent archipelago. At Ekbacken you spend your holiday in a large, open planned villa, with a large garden, situated by the waterfront, with your own jetty, your own boat and sauna at your disposal. Villa Ekbacken is ideal for family and friends. Villa Ekbacken is situated on the island of Stegesund, a 10 minute boat ride from the small archipelago town of Vaxholm. It takes one hour on a scenic route with the local ferries to reach the hearth of Stockholm. Villa Ekbacken is recommended all seasons of the year. Why not spend a early spring week by the edge of the water? Or take a autumn week with good books, walks, mushroom picking and cosy evenings in front of the open fireplace? Enjoying a sauna is equally relaxing whether it is plus or minus degrees! More information: http://www.stegesund.com

                      Car: Not Necessary

                      The island of Stegesund is attached to the island of Hästholmen. Both islands are well known for their large fin-de-siècle villas from late 1800. There are no cars on the islands, which makes bicycling and walking even nicer. Nature invites you to glittering narrow coastal inlets, tall oak trees and prosperous meadows.

                      The archipelago will offer you clean water and Nordic light.

                      In the small town, or rather village, of Vaxholm you will find food stores, fish monger, pharmacy, wine merchant, restaurants and more. Vaxholm is very picturesque and summertime the village is buzzing. Vaxholm cold easily be reached by your own boat, local ferry or by taxi-boat.

                      Stockholm is close. Do not miss the Wasa Museum, Astrid Lindgren’s Junibacken or some good shopping! The local ferries are only 150 meters from the house and leave several times per day. The scentific trip through the archipelago takes about one hour.

                      Other Activities: Don't miss sightseeing in Stockholm - only one hour away with the local ferry

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2005

                      About the owner: Hej! I am Anna the landlady. During summer I live with my husband and our teenage twins 2 kilometers from VIlla Ekbacken in a large old jugend villa build already in 1914. We love the sea and the archipelago. During winter we live in Stockholm and I work at a design agency - you might tell from the scandinavian architecture and the nordic interiour design at Villa Ekbacken ;-) During summer I comute with the local ferries from the island to my office in Stockholm every day. It is a lovely trip and a nice way to start my morning!

                      Why the Owner Chose Stockholm:
                      I would say that Villa Ekbacken is the best of two worlds. You have a lovely scandinavian villa with a very large garden right down to the seafront with your own jetty and your own boat. It is situated on a beautiful island with old large houses, lovely nature and and friendly people. Plus with the local ferry you can easily reach the center of Stockholm for city puls, shopping and local tourist sites. Close the island you have small little Vaxholm a very pittoresque village where you find your local bakery, fish and vegetable market and of course a local supermarket. It only takes you 10 minutes from your house to Vaxholm, either with your own little boat or with the local ferry. All my guest are thrilled by taking the boat to shop or visiting the local restaurant!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                      I would say the whole island is unique! It is not a very small island. I think we are all toghether about 80 houses plus lots of wild nature and forest, perfect for picking blueberries, rasberries and muschrooms, or why not go for a run or a walk? On the island we have an unique tennis court - it is build on wood! We think it is the only remaining wodden tennis court. It is well looked after and has been restored during the years. All members of our local tennis club play, we have tennis school for children and adults and end of July every year we have a big tournament for all members. As my guests at Villa Ekbacken you are welcome to use the tennis court. It is included in the rent and free of charge.
