Our vacation in Gamleby was simply perfect! The house was beautiful so even two rainy days were nice and cosy, surrounded by a farm and with a terrace where we had wonderful meals with a great view of the landscape. Margareta and Håkan were super friendly and helpful and made sure nothing was missing during our 3-weeks stay. There is a lot to explore around Gamleby: in Gamleby, we enjoyed the great Cafés, vintage shops and the wonderful beach at Hammarsbadet, and we drove to Västervik (great for shopping, food and sightseeing), visited the beautiful islands Hasselö and Idö (by ferry from Västervik) and other smaller villages. The Stockholm visit also was a highlight, also the elk safari in Virum, the Vimmerby visit and the great Tofvehult Café. And the list goes on! So we would definitely love to come back and recommend this lovely house to everyone who likes Sweden and Småland.

Lovely old farmhouse in fairytale landscape. Close to Astrid Lindgren's world and sea. Our kids loved the house and the kidsroom.

Lovely house and warm and welcoming host - she even put fresh flowers and chocolates on the kitchen table. The beds were ready made and there were plenty of towels. Our family felt very comfortable her. Highly recommendable!

Lovely house with lot of charme : almost like a museum ! We had a really nice stay. The only thing that require a little organisation is the absence of sink in the kitchen. Thanks for all!

Margareta's lovely old farm house was a great base for our short stay in the area. She was easy to communicate with ahead of time, and her son met us at the house to show us around. We were 6 persons (incl. children) , and Margareta had set up beds for all. The children loved the playhouse and toys- but even more the cows just outside the window in the morning! Would highly recommend staying at this lovely old farmhouse- with true 1800's charm.

It was a very nice old cottage. A bit primitive but in a charming way and with everything you need

Me and my husband live on this farm which has been in the family for generations. My husband runs a milk cattle farm with cows and bulls in all sizes :)
I work as a kinder garden principal in Gamleby and really like living on a farm and I also like when people come visiting me. Looking forward to have you as guests.
