Authentic Scandinavian holiday homes: discover the Swedish Stuga

It is one of the most famous icons in Sweden: the red houses that you see here and there in the vast Scandinavian landscape.

Many of these houses can be booked as a holiday home. Experience the real Swedish life in the middle of nature with this so-called ‘Stuga’.

To summarize it briefly, you can say that a ‘stuga’ is a wooden holiday home. These can be found throughout Sweden and often located in natural areas. The houses are therefore often located around a large plot of land. In the beginning it was mostly locals who rented a Stuga to holidaymakers. In recent years, more and more holiday organizations have discovered Sweden as the ultimate holiday destination for nature lovers. This means that a growing number of these types of holiday homes are being offered for rent in Sweden. But due to the sparsely populated nature of the country, you can still experience the untouchedness of this part of Scandinavia.

You can choose a holiday home high on a mountain in the north of Sweden or a cottage somewhere in the south on the beach of the long, rocky coast.
