A typical Skåne vintage house from 1844, comfortably equipped and renovated to restore its unique charm. Beautiful garden with fruit trees, flowers and several terraces to enjoy. Sweden's most beautiful sand beaches and medieval town Ystad nearby.
A cosy, yet large and modern country cottage in the outerskirts of Ystad (8 kms) with stunning garden. Built in 1844, carefully renovated, this house holds four bedrooms (two walkthroughs), a fully equipped kitchen with room for 8 people, two fireplaces, one bathroom with bathtub and a large living room. Furnished throughout with vintage furniture, this house will guarantee you a unique experience in Sweden's most beautiful landscape Skåne. The garden comes with two terraces and a sun deck where you can enjoy the sunset. The house, that we call Humlebacken, is ideal for families who want to enjoy each others company, yet have space to find an own corner.
Amenities nearby include an excellent supermarket and gas station (6 mins by car), Ystad town (10 mins), beach (10 mins) and a McDonalds if you're not up for grilling your own hamburgers on the garden BBQ.
You will have full access to the house and garden. The house is easiest accessed via car, but local buses stop 500 mts away.
Interaction with guests
We will either meet with you, or arrange via a friend, the handing over of keys and house tour. We speak French, German, English, Spanish and Swedish fluently. We have very friendly local neighbors that have lived abroad many years.
Other things to note
Worth noting is that there is a milk farm just across the street from us. It's a quite big farm where the cows are outside most of the year (except winter). In the winter time, you have to fire in the fireplaces to keep the inside temperature. Wood is provided.
You will live in our home as if it were your own. Therefore, we do only accept responsible and honest guests. If anything breaks during your stay, you must let us know.
We do not let the house for big party reasons or any commercial activities.
Smoking is under no circumstances allowed inside the house. Smoking in the garden is ok, but cigarette buts and ashes must be responsively taken care of.
