lovely-3

This beautiful summer home, owned by Lovely Life’s Amelia, was recently featured in Residence magazine. The lovely house is located on Gotland, a popular Swedish summer holiday destination. Many Swedes own a summer house, about twenty percent of all Swedes. And every summer tens of thousands of Swedes abandon their homes in towns and cities while they are heading to their summer houses to spend the entire summer with friends and family. If you could own a summer home where would this be?

ROCKING BOAT FROM HUNGARY

rocking-boat3

How cool is this rocking boat from Hungarian label Kattuska?! The boat, available in white or natural, arrives in flat packs and it is very easy to assemble. It has a silicone strap at the bottom to prevent it from slipping. Kattuska has more beautiful stuff for kids in their collection. I am also loving their castle playhouse.

Situated in the green north-west of Ibiza, between San Mateo and San Miguel and hidden in a forest of pine trees, holiday homes Can Sol and Casita Luna offer you a lovely and peaceful environment for a happy and relaxed holiday on the white isle. Can Sol is a unique, authentic house built of only natural materials. It is not an impersonal, cold design-villa, but a warm and cosy “home” where you will get to know and feel the real Ibiza. In the middle of nature, from the early sunbeams in the morning during breakfast until the magic sunset in the evening during dinner. Outside you will find besides a saltwater pool, plenty of space to chill on one of the sun beds, enjoy a good meal at the dinner table or admire the beautiful view. The house is child-friendly as there are chicken, a trampoline, a tipi to play in and lots of space to run around.

The beautiful house is located in the town of Polignano in Puglia, the ‘heel’ of Italy. “From the outside it just looks like a normal town house, but as soon as you enter you are dragged by the light to the sea-facing kitchen and out onto the large terrace courtyard that hangs 20 meters above the water,” she says. “The first and last thing we do every day is inhale the sea.
