I knew I was going to love Sweden, even before I went. I follow many stylish Swedish women on Instagram, and the idea of cottage living in rural Sweden really appeals to me. Those pretty black or red wood-clad cabins, set in verdant gardens.
Villa Sigrid is a beautiful little cabin set a few streets back from the beach in a sleepy seaside town of Vejbystrand. Just an hour from Malmo by car. It was just as I hoped, pretty, scandi and minimal. I fell in love with the place immediately.
Vejbystrand is situated in the north west region of Skåne. A great location to explore the coastline, great towns and national parks, with hiking trails and bike trails. We couldn’t wait to get out and see what this part of Sweden had to offer.
Black wood-clad on the outside, white wood-clad on the inside. Simply decorated with items from local artists with the Skåne region. Ceramics, blankets, art on the walls, raincoats and welly boots and food in the fridge all gorgeous and thoughtful.
The is small cabin has one master bedroom, with a comfy super king sized bed, and french doors that open out onto a deck and the garden. I loved chilling on the bed, with the doors open, listening to the wind in the trees. That is the one thing I miss about the countryside, is the sound of the wind rustling the leaves… it’s so relaxing.
The Villa has only one bedroom, but luckily the sofa in the lounge converted into a huge sofa bed. The boys slept happily on there during our stay.
And that is actually how I felt during my entire stay. Fully relaxed and at home there. Our days were spent having leisurely breakfasts at the dining table, then out exploring the local area, and then back in the evening for supper and a walk around the neighbourhood at dusk.
I shall share more about our trips and adventures in another post. I just wanted to share our lovely cabin in Sweden. We adored it. I’d love to have one to get away to, how amazing would that be? Anyway, details below.
(this website has details of the hostel nearby, so email them to enquire about Villa Sigrid).
