    What else ...

    Our family home is perfect to visit halmstad city. It takes 10 minutes by car or bus to get to the city centre, by bike around 30 minutes.
    In the summer you can enjoy the beautiful and famous beach called Tylösand beach where you can relax, picnic, beach volleyball in a good sunny days . For whom loves to party can always go to Hotel Tylösand’s After Beach, an every day summer party at 4 AM the party starts at Solgården, where energetic live music gets you in the right mood for the evening. Crowded, buzzy, and loaded with good vibes—in short, the best possible way to finish off a great day on the beach.
    Our little cottage suited in a forest and horse stable where you can go for horse back riding, fishing, cycling, hiking and relaxing. Lots of nature and wildlife: moose, deer, badgers, foxes can be seen nearby.
    We like to have a friendly win-win situation, and our workaways are supposed to have a good time here : )
