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.

Perfekter Familienurlaub auf einem wunderschönen Anwesen!

  • 5 of 5

Auf Skälsnäs hat sich Familie Wien ein wunderschönes Domizil geschaffen, welches uns Urlaubern genau das gibt, was man sich für einen perfekten Schwedenurlaub wünscht.

Das historische Ferienhaus für Gäste gleicht einem Museum und ist unheimlich geschmack- und liebevoll eingerichtet. Es fehlt einem an Nichts und jeden Tag kann man neue interessante Details im Haus entdecken.

Die Sommertage konnten wir hervorragend mit einem Frühstück auf der Wiese vor dem Haus beginnen. Der Blick auf das Anwesen mit Ponys und Schafen sowie dem See waren dabei unbeschreiblich schön!

Fast jeden Tag haben wir die Zeit an der Seeterrasse mit angeln, spielen, baden oder Boot fahren verbracht, aber auch Tagestrips zu dem umliegenden Städten haben jung und alt auf ihre Kosten kommen lassen.

Gerade für den Aufenthalt mit mehreren Personen ist das Haus empfehlenswert, da es über 2 Etagen geht und im EG sowie im OG jeweils über ein Bad verfügt. Die große, voll ausgestattete Küche mit angrenzendem Essbereich lädt zu einem entspannten Ausklingen der Urlaubstage ein.

Und auch die historische Truhe mit den unzähligen Gesellschaftsspielen sorgt für gesellige und schöne Abende bei Groß und Klein.

Vielen Dank für die schönen Tage bei Ihnen auf Skälsnäs, Familie Wien!

Traumurlaub Schweden

  • 5 of 5

Unser erster Schwedenurlaub führte uns auf die Halbinsel Skälsnäsdes am bekannten Helgasee in Småland. Die Natur ist einmalig und man kann viele schöne Wanderungen oder auch Bootsausflüge machen. Die Unterkunft ist ein denkmalgeschützes Gebäude und man fühlt sich in das vorletzte Jahrhundert hineinversetzt ohne auch nur den geringsten Komfort zu vermissen. Die Unterkunft und das Anwesen sind super gepflegt und überall kann man neue Kleinigkeiten und Details entdecken. Des Weiteren befindet sich in direktem Anschluss an das Gebäude eine Koppel mit zwei Ponys, die uns begeistert haben. Bei Fragen stand uns die Familie immer tatkräftig zur Seite. Wir bedanken uns vielmals für den schönen Urlaub und kommen bestimmt wieder.
