Welcome to one of the loveliest regions of Småland and to Astrid Lindgren’s home! Skogshyttan House is situated near Marianneland at the edge of the forest in in a thickly wooded romantic location. There are lots of lakes here (the nearest are 800 and 1500 m away) for swimming, fishing and boating, lots of animals (elks, deer, hares, wild pigs and forest birds), dense forests to walk in, stroll and day-dream, and close by there’s also Bullerbü, Katthult and Vimmerby. Old and young will love the theme park Astrid Lindgren’s World in Vimmerby, where places and scenes of her wonderful stories can be seen. In the summer you can play golf in Eksjö or go skiing nearby in the winter, or in nearby Marianneland visit the ‘sweet’ little sweet factory, and from here it’s only an hour to the sea. Welcome – to an unforgettable, wonderful holiday!
