“Charming sums it up”
Reviewed 23 June 2013 via mobile

The visit was well worth it. The house really had a cosy feel to it. Somewhere one could call home. The lake and surroundings made it picture postcard. It was very busy but not over crowded. Had lunch at the restaurant whilst waiting for the English tour to commence. The buffet spread was scrumptious. Well worth the drive. Must visit if you are in Dalarna.

“Carl Larsson - garden”
Reviewed 28 May 2013

while waiting for our tour of Carl Larsson's home we had lunch at the garden restaurant next door. It was homey and the food was very good. the desserts were very good. Some locals were celebrating a birthday - the Swedish happy birthday song is much better than ours!

“This is a must when you're in Sweden and Dalecarlia”
Reviewed 22 September 2012

The home of the artist Carl Larsson and his family is something you just cannot miss if you're in the area. Nice and skilled guides brings you through the house in small groups and the only sad thing is that you can't stay ther for as long as you like.
If you can, try to read a little about the artist and check some of his paintings before you go there and you will find the visit even more interesting.

“An intimate look into the life of Sweden's most famous artist.”
Reviewed 20 July 2012

This was one of our major destinations of our trip to Denmark and Sweden. Don't miss it! But before you go, read up on Carl and Karin Larsson. You will get so much more out of the tour. He was the "Norman Rockwell" of Sweden. But the home was a collaboration between him and his wife Karin. We had a wonderful tour guide, Jonas, and we were the only people on the English tour adn because we knew a lot about Larsson he was able to provide more details about him and Karin and the house. It is a lovely house with something interesting in every corner! Wander through the garden designed by Karin. The whole Dalarna region is gorgeous. We were there in late June and the wildflowers were all over.
