House in Kungsbacka, Sweden

The house is situated in the coutryside 10 km from Kungsbaca (70 000 inhabitants) and 35km from Gothembourg (500 000 inhabitants).

Here you can enjoy living in the middle of the nature but still close to a big city. You´ll have the big forest and small fields as closest neighbours and a swim in any of the many close lakes is only a walk away. If you like fishing you can borrow our small boat in one of the lakes and hope for pike or brass. You can also go 15 minutes by car to the sea and chose from sandy beaches, cliffs or a mix of them.

For lazy days you can stay in the 2500 square garden, sitting in one of our two big terasses, the big tree-swing, or the “not so estetical J but very useful bower” with a nice view over the landscape.

If you have children they will always find something to do with a trampoline, swing-stand, small playhouse, trees to climb and a big lawn to play in. Inside we have two boy´s room and a playroom all filled with toys and a Wee-game.

With four female ducks we hope for fresh eggs every morning and our cat will be happy for some company. You can chose if you want to feed the ducks and/or the cat or if you want us to arrange for someone else to do that.

The house has about 180m2 living area with a bigger living-room/kitchen and many smaller rooms. It is two floors and a basement. On the top floor is one main bedroom and two bedrooms for the children. One with a bunk for two and the other one with one bed. There is also a bigger bathroom. On the ground floor there is the kitchen and the livingroom with an open fire, a TV-room with a L-shaped sofa, a playroom, a small toilet and an office with a sleeping bunk for two people.

For the closest surroundings (10 to 20km) google Smarholmen, Gottskär, Äskhult, Tjolöholm, Sandsjöbacka, Freeport, Fjärås Bräcka or enter www.kungsbacka.se. There you can find many interesting historical sites, beautiful nature and nice shopping.

For the summer of 2013 we would like to go for a trip in Europe for 1-2 weeks. We put our hopes up for that someone is interested in our house and a change will come to place. We now tryed intervac ones and it seems like a perfect way to travel!

Thank you for reading! /Pernilla

Our Neighbourhood

Kungsbacka is situated on the coastline were sandy dunes meet cliffs. In the southern parts you can find long sandy beaches, and the sea gets deep very slowly. Perfect for small children and sunny days. In the northen part of Kungsbacka the sea meets land in cliffs that sometimes goes steep into the sea. This is good for fishing and jumping into the water. In some places, right outside Kungsbacka you can find places with a combination of these two types of nature. Normally with cliffs and smaller sandy beaches. Smarholmen is one of these places. The temperature in the sea is normally good for swimming from middle of june until the end of August.
Kungsbacka is also a place where fields meet forests. Close to the sea there is a open lanscape, and some kilometer to the east the big forests starts. Close to our hose there is a sportshouse with some running tracks in the forest. (Its not very frequently used though). The woods are much firtree, but also a lot of oaks and birch.
The closests surrondings has a long history of agriculture and were one of the first places in Sweden to be populated. Many leavings from the ice-age (Fjärås bräcka), the time of the Vikings (Li gravfält), and the latest centuries (Äskhult) are nice to visit.
In Gothembourg you can always visit Liseberg, the biggest amusementpark in Scandinavia. There is also Universeum, a big museum that shows much from the Swedish nature, the big oceans (big aquariums) a artificial rainforest and many technical experiments for children. Gothembourg has an relatively new built opera, much shopping and many different museums. In the park Slottskogen you can find and look at many animals like elks, dears and seals. No entrance.
