In Sweden, you will find mountains in the north, sandy beaches in the south, reefs on the eastern coast, and the scenic islands Gotland and Oland in the Baltic Sea.

Choosing your ideal holiday home in Sweden

Sweden, in the heart of Scandinavia is famed for its stunning natural wonders. It is the perfect vacation destination for those who want to escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life. There are endless possibilities for spending a memorable vacation in a holiday home in Sweden. Throughout the country, you will find holiday homes with idyllic surroundings such as beautiful lakes, rivers, parklands, or golf courses. Your typical Swedish holiday home is a wooden house painted in red and brown, nestled next to an idyllic lake and surrounded by lush green forest. Ideal for a great Swedish holiday! Many of the holiday houses are located on secluded properties, at a remove from nearby villages and towns, which ensures tranquillity and deep relaxation.

Holiday apartments in Sweden: the perfect way to relax and unwind

There are plenty of holiday homes in Sweden for you to choose from. Most visitors prefer to stay in a holiday apartment instead of a traditional hotel when they are on holiday, as these holiday rentals are much more comfortable, romantic, and cosy than conventional hotel rooms. These self-catered accommodations provide the highest level of flexibility and comfort for a truly relaxing stay. When you rent a holiday home in Sweden, for instance in the cosy region of Småland, you can cook your own food at home, invite friends, and enjoy various outdoor activities, while paying affordable rates. Most Swedish holiday houses feature all necessary amenities despite their secluded setting. Many holiday houses also have a pool and sauna, ensuring a fantastic, relaxing holiday.

Things to do and see from your holiday home in Sweden

Enjoy a plethora of exciting activities from your holiday home in Sweden. Don't forget to visit Stockholm's two UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the Woodland Cemetery and the Royal Palace Drottningholm. Stockholm is also renowned for its iconic museums, the most notable being the Museum of Modern Art, Sweden's national modern art gallery featuring works by artists such as Dali and Picasso. Other must-see sites include the Grona Lund amusement park, Kungliga Slottet Royal Palace, the Vasa Museum, the National Museum, the Modern Museum, the Swedish Museum of Natural History, and Storkyrkan cathedral. Guests at Sweden holiday apartments near Stockholm can also enjoy sandy beaches on the scenic islands of the Stockholm archipelago. If you prefer to discover the Scandinavian wilderness far from the city, travel out to Gotland, an island off the east coast of Sweden. It is Sweden's largest island and a popular resort area with limestone cliffs and sandy beaches.

Explore neighbouring locations from your holiday apartment in Sweden

Sweden is mainly divided into three broad regions that include North Sweden (Norrland), Central Sweden (Svealand), and South Sweden (Gotaland). North Sweden is ideal for active travellers in both summer and winter. Visitors can see the famous northern lights from the doorstep of their holiday house here. Countless lakes and deep woods dominate Central Sweden, where a visit to the capital city of Stockholm is a must. If you are planning to rent a holiday home in Småland, nestled in the south of Sweden, you can explore amazing cities like Gothenburg and Malmoe. The quaint town of Visby is also worth visiting, and it hosts an annual city festival each August.

Travelling to your holiday apartment in Sweden

The fastest way to reach your Swedish holiday home from the U.K. is to take a flight. It will take approximately two and a half hours to reach Sweden. Sweden has several airports, and you can fly straight to some of the country's major cities, including Stockholm, Gothenburg, and Malmoe. Train rides in Sweden are among the most scenic in Europe, showcasing the country’s verdant landscapes and fjords at every turn. Buses are the most affordable transport option, and the roads are well maintained so renting a car is also an easy option. If you’re planning to explore Stockholm, it is recommended to purchase a Stockholm Card, which includes access to public transportation, and a few ferry rides.

Best time to visit

Sweden has a temperate climate with comfortable temperatures in the warm season. Swedish summers are pleasant, though some rain is to be expected.
