Cottages for rent and boat trips

On our old farm on the island Vänsö, you can rent three different cottages. Vänsö is an island where you can only come to by boat, no ferries or bridges. You leave the car at the mainland and we will pick you up by boat.

Storstugan about 100 years old, Fiskarstugan almost 200 years old and Gammelstugan more than 200 years old. You can rent either of them on a weekly basis. Different houses and sizes and prices.

Vänsö is quite a large island. Here you can take long walks and go for a jog. The old farm is situated about 100 - 150 m from the ocean. There you can swim and fish. There is plenty of fish in the water, both "abborre" and "gädda". In the forrest you can find wild berries. If you are interested in bird watching, you can see eagles and many other sea birds during your stay. We have small boats and kayaks to rent. There are no roads or cars on the island so here you can really rest.

If you would like to go to a restaurant you can visit Mons Restaurant, about 10 minutes away by boat. They serve great lunches with a view. There you can also take a swim on the sandy beach.

There are no stores on the island but you can by groceries on the mainland, 10 min by boat and 10 min by car. There is a store at Mon - Lanthandel and also att Bottna. We will of course help you with transportation by boat.

We are sure you will have a wonderful week in our beautiful archipelago!
Hope to see you here!
