Important to remember; The Swedish archipelago (including ASPÖ) has TICKS carrying diseases. If you are not used to everyday preventive actions living with ticks, vaccination is recommended. Always follow key rules such as 1) Don't walk 'unprotected' in high grass / vegetation, protect skin with trousers, long sleeve, boots etc 2) use repellents 3) check all body every night for ticks 4) eating garlic is a 'traditional' extra tip. Remember; pets will bring ticks indoor.

On arrival: With car, you have free access on the ferry from Karlskrona to Aspö. No car? International? No problem. You can arrive at Kasturp Airport (Denmark) take the train straight from the airport to Karlskrona (3,5 hours) and jump on the ferry to Aspö (20 minutes). Bicycles are waiting for you at the ferry harbor. It's a 3,5km beautiful ride to 'Aspö Cottage', and you can buy our family bakery 'Z-bagaren's' fresh bread from the local store on the way.

On Aspö: you can drive on the small island of Aspö, but a bike trip or a walk, might be just as easy.

Visit Karlskrona? If you want to see amazing Karlskrona, catch a film on a rainy day or do some shopping, you just take the bike/car 3 km to the ferry, and after 20 min you arrive in the central of Karlskrona city and UNESCO Cultural Heritage. Don't miss the famous 'Glacie

NOTE! 'Aspö Cottage' is an old fishing cottage. The cottage has dry toilet solutions according to the islands environmental policy. Water is fetched at Aspö joint water-taps (will be full water supply in 'Aspö Cottage' on arrival, but may need to refill depending on how long you stay). Shower is available at the local yacht club (1 EURO). Or free if you take your morning dip in the sea. This is not the right place if you want city comfort! But might be just the ticket if you want back to nature - but still walking distance to a hot shower, the local store with fresh baked bread and the pub.

The place was amazing! A little piece of heaven and perfect for the event. We all came to Aspo from karlskrona for a good friends birthday party. Birgitta was more than accommodating to our needs and we found the place to be even better than we expected. She was so attentive and kind and went out of her way to ensure we had everything we needed and more! I would definitely recommend this place to everyone who is looking for a place to escape, listen to birds and enjoy the beauties of a Swedish island. Thanks for everything!

This is a beautiful cottage on a beautiful island! Brigitta was unexpectedly away and couldn't meet us, but we had no trouble following her messaged instructions to find everything we needed. If you come during the off season, be sure to double check that you are covered for food. We arrived after the store closed and found that the only restaurant was closed for a wedding reception. Fortunately Birgitta helped us out from afar and we ended up having a lovely meal!

Vi hade bra mailkontakt under tiden strax innan vi kom till stugan. Inne hade Birgitta packat en fin välkommen-låda, mina barn uppskattade godis och kex. Jag tyckte om pärmen med all väsentlig information. Vi reste med tre generationer och då passade stugorna med de mycket olika stilar väldigt bra för oss. Det fantastiska väder bidrog såklart till en underbar helg på Aspön.

Wir fühlten uns sehr willkommen in Aspö-cottage bei Brigitta. Alles war sehr liebevoll bereitgestellt inklusive Essenvorräten. Obwohl sie zu der Zeit selber nicht da sein konnte, funktionierte alles perfekt, bis zur Fahrradleihe, die sie für die Ankunft organisiert hatte und der unkomplizierten Kommunikation mit ihr. Der einfache Komfort ohne fliessendes Wasser war für uns kein Problem. Eine sehr hilfsbereite Gastgeberin, zu der wir jederzeit wieder gehen würden.

Helt fantasktiskt och unikt boende i Blekinges skärgårds miljö hos Birgitta och Aspö. Vi vill absolut tillbaka till denna pärla, där enkelheten och hyggen står i fokus. Och vilket välkomnande vi fick av Birgitta och hennes dotter Ingrid, med choklad, fika, vin och extra hygien artiklar ifall man av misstag glömt sina egna. Vi hade även möjligheten att tända spisen och mysa till det med kortspel och alfapet medans regnet öste ner en av våra semesterdagar. Men vid havet ändrar sig vädret fort och när solen sken kunde militär museum, kastellet och olika badvikar besökas och avnjutas. Blekinge är balsam för själen.

Hi, I'm Birgitta Liljedahl. After weeks on the road between north of Sweden, New York, or war-zones like South Sudan as a researcher / screenwriter, for me, our family place 'Aspö Cottage' is an oasis for writing, photography or just relaxing in the archipelago - yet on walking/ferry distance to historic Karlskrona. Hope you will enjoy it too!
