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. 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!

Nu smälter snön och vi har plusgrader. För ett par dagar sen var det kramsnö och Mats fick leklust 😊. Bonzo tyckte mest det var läskigt 😂/ The snow is now melting. The other day Mats felt playfull. Good result 👏 #vansogard


Och det snöar och snöar och snöar i Sankt Anna. / It’s snowing and snowing some more in Sankt Anna ❄️❄️❄️


Idag tog Mats scotern ut på isen för att buska körväg till Lergraven. Allt såg bra ut till en början.... men nu ligger scoter, kälke och motorsåg på havets botten. Mats hann som tur var kasta sig av i tid och nu sitter vi vid köksbordet och dricker whisky och är gladare än någonsin för livet. / Mats started out this afternoon on his way to Lergraven. Good to have a winter road to drive on. Bad luck, the scoter is now on the bottom of the sea but Mats is alive 👍. He came home wet but alive 🤭. Now a whisky to celebrate life.

New building! Sauna!

We offer an outdoors shower but now even a sauna with shower and WC. A separate building built during the fall of 2018.
