ABOVE: Mona and Björn
Sjörving have turned a rural farmstead into a low-key country resort. INSET: One
of the three resident dogs plays with his teddy bear.
Mona and Björn Sjörving, Vennerbo
represents a labor of love, not just a livelihood. After retiring from the
9-to-5 life, the couple bought the small farmstead just 13 km (8 miles) from
Stockholm's Arlanda Airport and developed it into a country retreat for
city families and visitors from abroad.
Vennerbo is only five minutes from
Sigtuna, the oldest medieval town in Sweden, which makes it a convenient
place to spend a night or two after touring the country by car. You can explore
the sights, shops, and restaurants of
Sigtuna, visit the three palaces in the neighborhood, and enjoy a taste of rural
Sweden before you drop off your rental car at Arlanda and fly home.
