In the living room sofas, closed chimney, heaters in all the rooms. 2 terraces with furniture. Big garden with old trees and grass to play and grill.

The 13 km long sandy beach has the 'blue flag', which means its a splendid water quality, safe for children as the water is low. The house is situated in the best spot of Mellbystrand, only 200 m away from strandhotel (restaurant), minigolf, shops and further restaurants.

You like hiking and you can do this nearly all the year around in Halland: Discover the Hallandsleden (totally 380 km along the coast of Halland) with small open huts and fire places where you can prepare your meals. Or Skåneleden in the neighboorhood-province, where Nils Holgersson started his trip on the goose. You chose how long you want to go, for instance Hovs Hallar-Torekov 10 km, Bastad-Torekov 23 km.

Biking: On the Ginstleden, a biking way which goes over 200 km from Laholm nearly until göteborg and from which you see the landscape with different eyes. At the same time you can visit the coast towns like Halmstad, Falkenberg and Varberg.

Tennis: Rent the tennis-court nearby or come to the Swedish Open in Båstad.

Skiing:: Skiing in Halland: Even in winter we have a lot to offer: the Hallandsåsen has a big skiing area with several lifts and a snow board area and you can go ice-scating there as well. In the restaurant or the hut (where you can eat your own meal) you meet many happy Swedish and Danish families. You can even go cross country skiing.

If there is enough snow, even on the beach!! Or on the golf course (8 km away). Or on Hallandsåsen (15 km away). Enjoy going to the sauna and warm up yourself after skiing (300 m, 3 times a weekI).

Language- or yogacourse before the middle of june and after the middle of august: Book a language course with the German translator Monika Hornig in the following languages: English, French, Spanish, Swedish, Italian or German (even business language).

Maybe you want to communicate in Swedish during your holidays? Or your childlren need som help to get fit for the next school year?

You always thought of visiting yoga lessons? Monika Hornig, examinated yoga teacher, will teach you hatha-yoga: relaxation, deep breathing and yoga exercises . You can even combine yoga with courses in spiritual development: book a course in training of the intuition or reading the cards with Madame Lenormand.

About Monika Hornig

I spent my first holiday here when I was 10 years old and afters having seen so many beaches on the world, I can say this is a paradise. That´s why I moved to Sweden in 2005 and started my own language and yoga school here. The place is gorgeous, there are so many leisure possibilities and cultural events. And I give you all my personal tips that your holidays will be special too:)

Why Monika Hornig chose Mellbystrand

Here you find everything which Halland can offer: the 13km long sandy beach, only some km to one of the best salmon rivers, paths for jogging and walking, many excursions for everybody in the family.

The house is situated in the best part and centre of the beach, but is quiet. The children love the garden with the old trees. They get happy when a wild rabbit passes by and in spring and autumn you might even see the elg family.

What makes this house unique

The house is well-planned, very romantical when you make a fire in the chimney. You have two terraces and can always choose if you want to sit in the shade or in the sun.

Your car is parked safely on the lot.

This house was built of biological material, which means it´s not only cosy but even healthy.

Ferienhaus am Mellbystrand

  • 5 of 5

Das Ferienhaus liegt am schönsten Strand der Westküste von Schweden und zwischen Bostad und der historischen Stadt Laholm. Das Haus ist komplett eingerichtet auch mit allen elektrischen Geräten die man sich nur wünschen kann und geeignet für 4 Personen. Ich war Anfang September 2016 bei herrlichem Wetter dort und man konnte sogar noch im Meer baden. Durch die sehr persönliche Einrichtung des Hauses durch den Vermieter habe ich mich dort sehr wohl gefühlt und würde gerne auch in Zukunft das Haus mieten wollen. Durch die ideale Lage am Meer und die gemütliche Atmosphäre des Hauses kann ich ohne Bedenken das Haus jedem Anderen weiter empfehlen.

Schöner und warmer Herbsturlaub in Südschweden

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben einen wunderschönen und erholsamen Herbsurlaub in Monikas Blockhaus verbracht.

Monika hat uns sehr herzlich empfangen und uns viele Tipps bez. Einkaufen, Sehenswürdigkeiten, Strände usw. gegeben.

Das Blockhaus ist mit allem notwendigen Komfort ausgestattet. Die Strand- und Waldnähe zum Blockhaus ist einmalig und bemerkenswert.

Wegen dem schönen und warmen Wetter war das Heizen mit dem Kamin überflüssig.

Dank dem Naturpark konnten wir Elche und Hirsche in der Nähe des Blockhauses sehen. Die wunderschönen Spaziergänge im Wald und am Strand haben wir sehr genossen.

Wir werden diese wunderschönen Eindrücke vermissen und ein anderes Mal da unsere Ferien verbringen.

Wir haben ein superschönes Blockhaus, komlett eingerichtet mit allem was man braucht, vorgefunden. Wir machten sehr schöne und ruhige Spaziergänge im Naturpark. Auch im Herbst haben ein wunderbares Wetter vorgefunden. Am letzten Tag konnten wir sogar Elche in der nähe des Blockhauses sehen. Monika ist eine super Vermieterin. Sie hat uns gute Tips für Reiseziele und vieles andere gegeben. Wir werden auf jeden Fall wieder hinfahren.

Gemütlich und kinderfreundlich

  • 4 of 5

Wir haben im August 2013 mit unseren 3 kleinen Kindern im Blockhaus gewohnt und es hat uns sehr gut gefallen. Hervorzuheben sind das schöne Grundstück und die Nähe zum Strand. Die Einrichtung ist gemütlich. Unsere Kinder waren besonders begeistert, dass sie sich 2 Wochen lang um das Kaninchen Rufus, das vor dem Blockhaus seine Hütte hat, kümmern durften. Alles in allem war es ein angenehmer und erholsamer Urlaub.

The Mellbystrand is called the bathtub of Sweden, because the gulf stream passes here and the sea is always warmer than anywhere else in Sweden. Tourism started here 100 years ago and many summer-houses and beach houses are witnesses of this time. It´s a famous place with a long tradition and many Swedish people spend their holidays here every year. You will never forget this place. Possibilities for excursions:

Laholm (Small town located on a river, go by boat), Halmstad (hometown of the rock group Roxette with many cultural events), Bastad (former fishing village, every year international tennis Swedish Open), Torekov,

Hovs Hallar (red rocks on the beach, make a picknick here at sunset), museums and much more.

Other Activities: Canoing, tennis, hiking, biking, surfing, kitesurfing, fishing golf (nearly all the year around), skiing, ice-skating.

Golf: Swedish people are passionate golf players and you can find them on the golf courses all the year around. If you are the same, you can test a new golf course every day: the 'year-around golf courses' have a winter green. Just some exampeles: Laholm (10 km away): year around, 27 holes (30/10 euros per person and day), Bastad (10 km), situated between apple trees, us-norm, nearly year around, 18 holes (22 E), Skogaby

(20 km): year around, 18 holes (30/10 E), Bastad 820 km): neary year around, 36 holes (50E), You can even get a golf teacher. In case you don´t have a greencard, you can go to the pay and play golf courts, like Mellbystrand (3 km): nearly year around
