In winter you can go fishing from the ice perch and pike with special equipment. To catch burbot (burbot), may also have its charm in winter.

When the ice melts, the season starts for the fishing for pike, which is mainly in spring and autumn. During the summer trolling after pike, pike, perch and possibly even brook trout is very rewarding. Perch, bream, roach (roach) and bleak one starts best with the fishing rod. Crayfish are caught in August and September, which are plentiful around our peninsula around.

Ein Boot zum angeln oder einfach nur zum fahren ist vorhanden , und Fisch zum angeln gibt es auch ( Hecht und Barsch ). Vielen lieben Dank Fam. Wien wir kommen gerne wieder 😊

Wonderful location for a tranquil break!

  • 5 of 5

We chose this property for our honeymoon as the photos suggested a lovely location and beautiful house. It certainly lived up to its promise - you essentially have the entire lake to yourself, and are very likely to stumble across incredible local wildlife (red squirrels, woodpeckers, elk!) in the near vicinity. Having access to the rowing boat was a lovely bonus, and it was fantastic to get out on the lake! The lakehouse is beautifully furnished, and the in-house sauna is a nice touch. You definitely need a car, as the property is very much off the beaten track. All in all, a wonderful property, and for us a great introduction to Sweden!

Das Haus am See - ein gelebter Traum

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren seit vielen, zu vielen Jahren, das erste Mal wieder in Schweden und hatten uns für das wunderschöne Seehaus entschieden. Hier passt alles. Neben der grandiosen Lage und dem Haus selbst überzeugt die Gastfreundschaft. Auch für Kinder ist es der perfekte Platz. Wir kommen definitiv wieder.

Sommer 2017: Die ganze Familie genießt Skälsnäs

  • 5 of 5

Mit 6 Erwachsenen und 4 Kindern die Zeit auf Skälsnäs sehr genossen. Die Kinder konnten sich frei bewegen und hatten einen Riesenspass, auch als Ausgangspunkt für viele Ausflüge ein guter Standort. Tolle Eigentümer, sehr hilfsbereit und nett, traumhafte Unterkünfte. Wir haben das grosse gelbe Haus und das Haus am See genutzt, einfach ideal.

Das wir bei der Abreise gleich wieder für 2018 gebucht haben spricht für sich...

Ein wundervoller Urlaub direkt am See

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben unseren Urlaub auf dem wunderschönen Anwesen der Familie sehr genossen.

Das Ferienhaus und der Gutshof entsprechen den Beschreibungen voll und ganz. Die Lage des Seehauses ist hervorragend. Unser Sohn (5 Jahre) hat sich "pudelwohl" gefühlt und einen wunderbaren Geburtstag feiern können. Vielen Dank nochmal! Die Vermieter sind sehr freundlich und herzlich. Wir haben uns rund um wohl gefühlt.

Traumhafte Winterwoche

  • 5 of 5

Wunderschön verschneite Landschaft, zugefrorener See, warmer Kamin und heiße Sauna - so verbrachten wir eine entspannte Winterwoche auf Skälsnäs. Das Seehaus ist sehr hübsch eingerichtet, es ist alles da was man braucht. Die direkte Umgebung lädt ein zu idyllischen Spaziergängen und Familie Wien ist ein herzlicher Gastgeber. Nur zu empfehlen!
