Traditionally the home of the dowager Countess the South Wing was built around 1830 in the prevailing style of swedish empire. Airy and light it contains 5 bedrooms, living room, dining room, a small library and a roomy kitchen. A south facing conservatory was added a few years ago with steps leading to a paved south facing terrace for sunning and eating. Furthermore our chapel in the North Wing makes Stensnäs ideal for weddings. We no longer have horses in our lovely stable - complete with tack room a bar and fireplace - but will happily accommodate yours (fees apply) if you so wish.
From the simple pleasures of picking your own bouquet of wild flowers, take a stroll in the park, go for a swim on your private pontoon, read a book or go fishing to waterskiing*, wake skating*, clay pigeon shooting*, bird spotting and canoeing. All are activities that are enjoyable on site within a few minutes walk. If we widen the geographic circle to include beautiful nature trails, a visit to our old mine - Stonebo gruva - with a 90 meter long adit (tunnel) , crayfish fishing* (in august), wild safari with the chance of spotting among others moose, cycle to our spring, or climb the hills to see the far reaching views or the few remnants of a Viking fortress, go bird watching by our wetlands where the sea eagle hover or just pick mushrooms for dinner you would still be within Stensnäs property boundaries. Further afield you could spend a day at sea enjoying the Tjust archipelago or visit the quaint town of Västervik.
