House in Gamleby, Sweden

Looking for an exchange during Easter holidays!

Welcome to our house
The house is located in the area of Västervik which can be described as untouched archipelago, fantastic swimming, picturesque town settings and entertainment! Västervik on the east coast of Småland is Sweden at its best. Fantastic Småland nature with leafy, green meadows and grazing cows. A small-town idyll. Then there is Sweden's most beautiful archipelago. It is this mix that makes it so exciting. Enjoy the views of the destination in this video: https://vimeo.com/144814528

Perfect for kids
Only a 45 minutes drive by car to the inland town of Vimmerby you will find a true paradise for the kids. Astrid Lindgren’s World is a theatre and theme park where visitors can experience characters from Astrid Lindgren’s books in their true settings. Everyone can meet the characters, they perform scenes from the books and improvise situations involving the children in the park. The park was founded in 1981 and is in Vimmerby, southern Sweden, Astrid Lindgren’s native town. According to the park’s charter, Astrid Lindgren’s World shall encourage children to read and write. Astrid Lindgren’s World receives some 450,000 visitors every year, of whom around 30% come from abroad.
