About Ulrika Petersson

My husband and I bought Älgdalen in 2010. We were looking for a cabin close to our family and relatives, who live in this area. It is very secluded. We love the deep woods of Småland and the small country roads. We especially like the Åsnen Runt trail. We take our two Springer Spaniels for long walks there. Älgdalen is also close to restaurants and shopping in Växjö.

Why Ulrika Petersson chose Älmhult Ö

Älgdalen is located between Växjö and Älmhult. It is out in the country. You can sit outside on the large deck and listen to the birds singing and the whispering pine trees. The house was built in the late 1800's. The interior design is a mix of old and new. It was renovated in 2014-2015. New water filter installed May 2018. It is a modern cabin, year around rental. Minimum stay is 7 days.

What makes this cabin unique

Secluded location out in the woods in southern Småland. Only one neighbor lives on the small gravel road. Very fast fiber internet max 100/10 Mbit/s. 30km from Växjö where you can find restaurants, museums, LEO's Lekland and shopping.

Has all you need

  • 5 of 5

Somewhere in the woods, silence and beautiful surroundings - all we needed for 2 wonderful weeks in Sweden. The house and its furnishing is simple but has all you need for daily life (we are a family with 3 children). We took advantage of the bikes (a neighbor helped us out with some tools to adjust seats and air pumps) and the boat (even life jackets were available in all possible sizes). If you are willing to drive 1 or 2 hours for day trips you can actually reach quite a lot in the area (Kalmar (Castle), Karlskrona, Halmstad (for a beach day), Glasriket (kingdom of crystal), etc. to get to know country and people. Thank you for the great stay.

Ideal, wenn man Ruhe braucht

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus liegt völlig abgeschieden, hat aber alle Annehmlichkeiten des täglichen Lebens. es ist gemütlich eingerichtet und es funktioniert auch alles. Die Buchung war völlig unproblematisch und es gab einen guten Kontakt. Die Betten sind gut. Die Ledergarnitur im Wohnzimmer sollte bei Zeiten mal ausgetauscht werden - die hat ihre Halbwertzeit deutlich überschritten. Das Wasser ist OK, schmeckt allerding stark nach Eisen - das ist etwas gewöhnungsbedürftig.

Alles in Allem empfehle ich das Haus gerne weiter.

Gemütliches Haus in der Nähe von Växjö!

  • 4 of 5

Uns hat es gut gefallen in Lönashult😃🇸🇪

Abwechselnd haben wir Ausflüge, z.B. nach Vimmerby in die ALV oder an Regentagen nach Växjö ins Schwimmbad bzw. den Indoorspielplatz gemacht. Besonders schön war die Umgebung des Hauses. Mit den vor Ort vorhandenen Fahrrädern konnten wir die Gegend erkunden.
