Come away with me

Peeking through the bushes, you see a white house standing. Being still a distance away, your eyes fail to tell you more about this isolated structure.

As you move out of the thick foliage cover and step into the enclosure, an entirely different scene emerges. You feel as if some backstage crew suddenly changed the backdrop. The warmth of the sun caresses your face. And basking in the sunny rays is the most charming summer house ever!

As you push opened the back door into the kitchen, you find the interior do not disappoint. A lovely vase of flowers adorns the window at the sink, which looks out into where you just came in from.

In the breezy dining room, you take a deep breath. It smells of nature. You love that this room opens to the vast green outside. You can imagine enjoying a meal at the table and then with a glass in hand, you step outside for a drink under the stars.

This house has a rustic charm that appeals so much to you. That fireplace and little basket of firewood by the side have you so smitten. Yet you can’t deny a sense of quiet elegance permeates this place too.

After falling in love with the house, you step back outside and notice a little wooden gate. Slightly ajar, it was so inviting. And you ponder what other greatness lies beyond.


Hello there! I hope you had a nice little adventure reading today’s post. I had so much joy just penning it and really felt as though I was transported away from my desk, into another world. And perhaps, back in time as well! This gorgeous Swedish summer stuga lies in the small village of Vettershaga, 100 kilometers north of Stockholm. This perfect idyll is home to only 7 families.
