We're going way out west for the Property of the Week. This charming place on an island near Gothenburg will have you wondering why you'd live anywhere else.
On the island of Härmanö, you'll find a cosy cottage overlooking the water. With almost 4,000 square metres of land at your disposal (217 metres squared of living area), you're almost spoilt for space.
The ideal summer spot to get away from it all, or even a winter treat, you can't go wrong in Orust for 9.9 million kronor ($1.5 million).
