Stay in the Old Court House at Wira
This light and lovely one room apartment of about 30 m2 and a lovely, large kitchen is in the old court house at Wira. The apartment has been kept and decorated with great care for historic details. Old wooden floor, a traditional Husqvarna cooker and an original tiled stove from the 19th century sets an historic atmosphere.
The newly installed bathroom has a shower and a classic English style lavatory. From the kitchen window there is a lovely view of the flowing brook and the garden. The kitchen is equipped with fridge, stove with oven, electric kettle and coffee maker. There is also a large TV. The bedroom sleeps at least four people: one double bed and one bunk bed.
Wira Bruk is close to the archipelago (10 minutes from the island of Ljusterö). You can come here by boat, bus or car. You can also hike or go by bike to get here.
