The last week of July we had the privilege to visit this beautiful house at Skarpo. We had a great week. The welcome by Mia and Ludde was warm and they could show us around, not just in the house but also point out were to go for a swim. The house and garden are big enough to host 2 adults and 4 teenagers. We could all be together in the living room or the dining room but there are also plenty of spots to find some peace. Skarpo is really lovely, full of those beautiful wooden houses. The isle itself is absolutely quiet but Vaxholm is nearby for all groceries, restaurants and boats to Stockholm and the other isles. The archipel was even more beautiful than we had imagined and (a pleasant surprise) no mosquitos.
In short, definitely a place to remember and come back to. Enjoy.
Välutrustad och charmig stuga på mysiga Skarpö. Modern bekvämlighet blandas med lantlig charm. Värdparet är gästfria och tillgängliga, men samtidigt diskreta. Skarpö erbjuder fina bad, många fina gamla, renoverade sommarnöjen att beundra, tennisbanor, fotbollsplan osv... Här finns allt för en lyckad skärgårdsvecka!
The house is located within a nice and calm property with old trees and cliff stones. It is old style and typical for the wonderful island of Skarpö which is ideally located in the Archipelogo of Stockholm. On the one side it is close to Vaxholm, a nice and picturesque harbour city with boats heading to Stockholm and many Archipelago islands. (It is highly commended to make these boat trips. They provide a unique insight into the marvelous landscape of the Archipelago and also a unique panorama of the wonderful city of Stockholm.) On the other hand it offers the charm of an island with different coast lines and nice places to take a bath in the Baltic sea. The house itself offers everything that is needed for relaxing holidays. The owners are lovely and very helpful in giving advice and to make the stay most enjoyable.
