Enjoy the peace and quite of Skarpö, one of 24000 islands in the Stockholm Archipelago. Skarpö has acted as a summer retreat since 1903, and offer a true genuine architecture style and environment, close to the water. We wish you very welcome.

The space
The house is situated 150 meters from the sea, privately placed in a leafy corner of our site.
The island offer you lots of stroll areas and close by beaches.

Vaxholm city - the capital of the Stockholm archipelago - is 1.5 km away with shops, restaurants, its history and famous fortress.

Vaxholm is also a transportation hub from which you have multiple options to get around. You can either travel out into the archipelago with any of the multiple ferry lines or take a boat trip into the centre of Stockholm - a nice one hour trip. There is also plenty of public bus transportations from Vaxholm that can take you to Stockholm in approx 40 min.

No one really know when Skarpö was first settled upon. However, in 1903 - after several hundreds of years of fishing, agricultural and maritime living - Skarpö goes through a major transformation. The island was split into 207 plots and offered to Stockholm citizens. The citizens starts to exploit the island and transforms it to summer residences with a typical and unique architectural style. This particular house was built 1910 and originally acted as a bakery.
