What an awesome place to stay. Sam and Jeroen are terrific hosts - friendly and helpful but in no way intrusive and Amot is a lovely village, with a lake to swim in, trails to hike and places to see by car all around. We, a family of 5 with children aged 5-9, stayed for 5 nights in all with...

We have discovered Sanctuary in every sense! Jeroen and Sam the stars of the show, so very welcoming, funny, generous, kind, informative and so much more. We stayed in Smedgardsvagen 7 with its cosy quirky interior. Comfy beds, snugly duvets, lashings of hot water and constant heat from the wood burning stove . Lots of space for four adults and...

Together with 3 friends I stayed here for 1 night in May 2015, passing through on the way to Stockholm. From the first to the last minute of the stay we were hosted in the best way possible by Sam, Jeroen and their staff. Beautiful view by the lake, super cozy cottage with a fire place, old Swedish interior, fully...

We chose the STILLEBEN B&B for a 4-day-stay in September. While we had to work for 3 days, we were pretty happy to have such a quiet and native place to stay. We arrived pretty late in the evening but the very friendly and attentive hosts waited for us to give us our keys. The daily breakfast was very comprehensive...

We had a fabulous time staying at Smedgardsvägen 7. A typical Swedish place. We can't recommend it highly enough. The house is beautiful with lovely furniture and decorations. It is spotlessly clean and there is lots of space. The area is very quiet and there is everything you need for a comfortable stay. Stilleben is a wonderful place to discover...

Stilleben is a wonderful place to discover the natural part of Sweden! Its venue is ideal for several occasions; we were there with a group of academics to work, and really choose for being in a quite place. The lakes and nature surrounding are impressive, and so are the hosts! This Belgian couple is developing a place where they can...
