It may be cold, it may grey… but that doesn’t stop us from dreaming about summer here in Sweden. And I for one, could imagine spending it right here at this idyllic cottage, 50 minutes from Stockholm. Granted the pictures have been taken before the lush meadows have sprung to life and lupins, lilac, and cornflower are in bloom – but you can still get an idea of what a summer paradise this is. Dating back to the 1930s, the 40-metre square / 430 feet square* traditional red and white cottage is far from luxurious – even though it does have a sauna. And that’s exactly what I love about it! I’m picturing relaxed days flitting between the indoors and out barefoot – with long lunches in the garden and a daily dip in the lake. And maybe a good book or two. Ready to dream?
How lovely! Could you imagine spending your summers here?
Incidentally – I mentioned that the size is 40 metres square, which is fairly small. But actually, in Sweden they don’t count areas under a certain ceiling height – hence the space under the sloped ceiling in the bedroom and bathroom are not included in this.
There’s also the sauna – how nice is that? I can imagine warming the cockles here before taking a cool dip in the lake. So relaxing!
Have a great start to the week friends!
