Do you own Sweden's loveliest holiday home?

Escaping the city to the family holiday home for the holidays is an integral part of Swedish culture. To celebrate this, Landfolk has joined forces with the interior magazine Hus & Hem to find Sweden's loveliest holiday home. The search is on, so don’t hesitate to participate if you think your Swedish holiday home deserves to be awarded the title.

Sweden's loveliest holiday home

Sweden is a haven of diverse nature, and home to 600,000 holiday homes and the Swedish nature is just as diverse as the Swedish holiday homes. Here, architecture, interior design, and, most importantly, ownership by individuals with distinct personalities result in spaces crafted with attention to detail, play the lead and grant us beautiful and inspiring spaces that enable us to lower our shoulders, enjoy a sense of inspiration and just enjoy our time together.

Therefore, Landfolk is partnering up with the Swedish interior design magazine Hus & Hem in search for the holiday home that truly embodies the essence of Swedish holiday home culture – just in time for the summer holidays.

The winner is awarded a special opportunity to be featured in Hus & Hem, as well as on Landfolk, while of course simultaneously enjoying the title of Sweden's Loveliest Holiday Home 2024.
