A reader wrote me about this traditional red and white farmhouse on Lake Vättern known as Munka Forest Farm, which is on the market near her hometown in Sweden: “The owners have run a lovely café in the great outbuilding and the house has been featured in magazines.”
The listing says (translated):
The house and the place has a long history of diligent monks, which were the first to discover the uniqueness of this place. The current house was built in the 20th century, but the site dates from the 1700s.
“When you come out of the woods on the way to Munkaskog you’ll find a magnificent view to Vättern, where a collection of houses nestle in the lush greenery of the lakeshore.”
“An extensive renovation was done in 1999 and the house was opened up to let in light in all rooms.”
The Pleasurable Café
The listing says:
At the side of the house is “Pleasurable,” which is a unique building used for weddings and special occasions, coffee breaks and the sale of beautiful furnishings.
It’s easy to see why the property has been featured in magazines. Gorgeous.

I’m totally charmed by this house and the café. Wish I could pop over there myself for a hot drink and and a stroll along the lake! For more photos and information about the property, check the listing.
