Lodge description
 
VILLA PERSBO
 
This nice and cosy, red/blue, cottage is situated at the end of Fjällhemsvägen. You and your family will come to a cabin in the top class segment. The house was built in 2003 in an old fashioned but still very modern style. The lodge is situated in the middle of the fjeld (mountain) forest in a glade with isolated and peaceful surroundings well away from roads trafficked by vehicles. Despite this it is close to almost everything. In addition to this the lodge has a ski in/ski out location with only some 100 meters to the nearest ski lift.
 
The ground floor is spacious with a lofty ceiling of some 5 meters. The first you will see when you come into the house is the beautiful firewood stove.
 
On this floor there is also a master bedroom furnished e.g. with a ceiling fan, a large wall mirror, wall-TV with DVD, good storing possibilities for clothes and two beds which easily may be put together to a romantic double bed.
 
There is also an additional room (maybe for the children?) with two bunk beds each with two comfortable sleeping accommodations. There are good storing possibilities in this room as well.
 
The ground floor multipurpose room is equipped with a three-piece sofa and chairs, dining room furniture and kitchen facilities.
 
The kitchen is very well furnished with many different accessories to facilitate for you to prepare gourmet dinners as well as plain food. There is a stove with oven, fridge with freezer, dishwasher, microwave oven, percolator, espresso coffee maker, coffee mill grinder, food processor, toaster, waffle iron… Of course you will find wine and Martini glasses as well as all other utilities needed for a comfortable evening in the light of the firewood stove and candles.
 
In the multipurpose room there is also a wall-TV with  DVD, a lot of dvd-movies, as well as a HiFi/stereo-device with many cassettes and CD´s. As well there is a drop-leaf card table at hand should you wish to have fun with any of the cabin´s numerous parlour games of different kinds.
 
The bathroom is furnished with a shower and there is also a hair dryer and curling irons. With direct access from the bathroom there is a cosy after ski sauna.
 
Of course the house is equipped with washing machine, drying cabinet, storage room for your skis and car engine heater. The floors in the entrance and in the bathroom are electrically heated.
 
On the loft there are two single beds which easily can be put together to one double bed. There is also an air fan and cable TV with DVD as well as good possibilities to store clothes and personal belongings in the drawers. Of course there is a WC.
 
On the large terrace situated on the south side of the cabin in direct connection to the multipurpose room you may place the outdoor furniture to be found in the ski storage room. Take the opportunity to enjoy the winter landscape and get a nice sun tan at the same time.
 
In the garden there is a outdoor grill, barbeque. You can make a snow-couch and grill there. Use only (in Swedish) "grill-bricketter" and not coal (the coal sparks - and that is not good). You can buy "grill-bricketter" in several shops in the neighbourhood.
 
Please note that it is prohibited to smoke in Villa Persbo and you are not allowed to bring pets. No sanitation against allergies is made in the house.
