During the summer all kinds of birds can be seen from the house, and foxes walk over the fields.  The smaller birds are building nests close to the house and you can hear the baby birds calling for food. The sun set from the veranda is amazing which just has to be experienced.

The beaches

There are two possibilities for swimming – at Abbortjärn, 3 km away, and at Storsand, 10 km away.

Aborrtjärn is a small very fresh lake with a grass beach and sand bottom. There is a wooden jetty and a float to play with. There is also a playground, fireplace, changing rooms and an outhouse. The best way to go here is by bike.

Storsand is a long sandy beach at the sea, and maybe one of the best preserved secrets of Västerbotten. It is not unlikely to be here nearly alone. From the beach it is a short walk to the nature reserve “Bjuröklubb” and beautiful cliffs.  The best way to go here is by bike or by car. There is no café at the beach, so be sure to bring something to eat and drink if you´re staying a whole day. You can also take the short drive to the harbour or the café at Bjuröklubb for refreshments and ice-cream.

Bakery

A traditional old bakery house is located 150 m from the house. The grand old ladies of the villages can introduce You to the traditional baking secrets – and You will have plenty of very tasty bread to bring back home. Please allow the whole day for this activity.
