Shortlist criteria


Interplay with nature

Holiday homes which reflect their surroundings and invite nature to come inside in different senses are fundamental for the ultimate Swedish holiday home experience.


Sense of harmony

Whether a modern minimalist dream or an 18th century cottage, a holiday home exludes a sense of harmony and calmness. This is a place to relax and be free from all the pressures of ordinary life.


Personal decor

The most wonderful holiday homes reflect the owners, their interests and personal style, resulting in a warm and welcoming ambiance.


Garden glory

Life in the holiday home is spent as much outside as inside, so make room for garden life! Whether wild or neatly planned, the garden is as important as the house itself.
