Island Villa Near Stockholm, Sweden, Offers The Best Of Nature And City

Vaxholm, a municipality made up of several islands in the Swedish archipelago of Stockholm, became a popular spa town and summer destination in the late 19th century, filled with second homes and small cabins.

The getaway draw continues today among those looking for a quiet place to enjoy the water and the great outdoors.

This archetypal villa, characteristic of island houses, stands on a hilly site surrounded by pine trees and ice-age shaped stone slabs on the island of Tynningö, which has a population of around 350 full-time residents.

“A number of commuter services will take you to the very center of Stockholm within an hour,” says listing agent Gunilla Zaar of Shaza Luxury Real Estate. “It is the ideal choice for those who wish to practice water sports, hiking, golf, boating, etc. while still being close to Stockholm with its full range of culture, shopping and entertainment.”
