Tjörn Holiday Homes

Save up to 10% on 2014 prices. Spacious holiday homes deep inside the Bohuslän archipelago and just 1hr from Gothenburg. The perfect launch pad for your holiday in West Sweden.


Overview

Imagine listening to the roaring sea and looking out at the austere Bohuslän nature while sitting in an easy chair in front of the fire, or heading down to the jetty for a summer swim, a fishing trip for mackerel or cod in spring, summer or autumn. These archipelago houses are available all year round but are especially popular during the long summer days in June, July and August. The kitchen, dining area and living room are on the first floor, have an open floor plan and magnificent views of the sea.

Set on the island of Tjörn (a 60-minute drive from Gothenburg), stay in your own beautifully decorated and well-equipped holiday home. These houses offer an open plan living room with panoramic views of Kyrkesund and the West Sea. There are so many islands to explore from this retreat, and just on your doorstep are the famous Salt and Sill restaurant (Taste of West Sweden accredited restaurant) and Käringön’s Oyster Bar.

On the island and beyond, visitors can enjoy a vast array of fun activities, including sailing, sea kayaking, diving, island hopping by ferry or walking on the beach. Quaint fishing villages are scattered across the area which are ideal places to stop for a look around, soak up the surroundings, taste fresh seafood and dip toes in the water while sitting on a jetty.
The highlight of this holiday is that it is one of the best places from which to explore the entire Bohuslän archipelago.
