If you're after a holiday that is nothing but pure chilled vibes and amazing landscapes, culture, and food, look no further than Stockholm, the mellow capital of Sweden. The ABBA museum is worth the trip alone. This Swedish city has some great restaurants and bars to get you started. And if you're in the mood for sightseeing, the city and surrounding areas are home to some incredible natural landscapes. The Stockholm archipelago has a whole host of nature reserves you can tour by boat. A trip away, however, needs a peaceful and cool place to stay and rest, and Airbnb has an array of incredible places. From swanky city apartments to quirky eco-friendly spots for groups. We’ve picked a selection of the best to help you with your planning.

Stockholm’s best Airbnbs

If you’re looking for something a little different, this newly built tiny house might take your fancy. With a lower bedroom and a loft area, this little house in a prime location is a perfect spot for friends or for a family of four. It’s also very well connected to the main areas of Stockholm city, with just a short walk through a park. The swanky apartment looks out over a well-kept garden you can relax in the sun (when you’re not dancing to the built-in speakers inside).

Stockholmers don’t call their city ‘beauty on water’ for nothing. Soak up the natural wonder of the archipelago at this enormous island getaway. This modern three-bed (which sleeps six) is surrounded by woodland, within walking distance to two beaches and comes with its own hot tub. Pretty neat, eh? 

Rooms? Five. Sleeps six guests.
Mood? Island getaway.
Location perks? So. Much. Greenery.
Budget range? High-end but worth it for the amenities.

When there are so many blankets and soft furnishings to be seen, it’s hard to imagine you won’t be comfy in this quirky apartment. Vibrant and covered in patterns, it’s a far cry from the Scandi chic we’ve all become accustomed to – but that’s not a bad thing. Besides, it’s located in peaceful Gamla stan, so sightseeing is super easy and relaxing come evening is a breeze.

Rooms? One. Sleeps four guests.
Mood? Eclectic AF.
Location perks? In the heart of Old Town, in a house from the 17th century. Pretty epic, right?

Yep, this is a pretty lavish penthouse. The vibe here is art-infused Scandi cool but you’ll be hard-pressed to find a four-bedroom home at this location, at this price, and one that serves picturesque views over Stockholm from its rooftop terrace that are THIS sexy. 

Rooms? Four. Sleeps nine guests.
Mood? Extra extra.
Location perks? Views of the city from your penthouse balcony. Live like the queen or king you really are.
Budget range? Boujie but not overboard.

Feeling flush? You will be after a stay on the top floor of this former bank. It’s strictly coasters only (ring marks on that antique furniture probably wouldn’t go down too well). And there’s a handily located fireplace to plonk yourself in front of, plus a wall of books to devour while you’re there.

Rooms? Three. Sleeps four guests.
Mood? Hygge personified.
Location perks? Super central location with all the access you need to explore the city at large.

There are also two terraces and a barbecue, as well as a huge lawn, a spot to fish with a rowing boat, and even a sauna. Sounds like the kind of place you never want to leave, but if you do, it’s 3km to the sea.
