In the small village of Lidhem, in the middle of the beautiful Småland countryside, you will find a small B&B and  selfcatering apartments for daily or weekly rental. The tourist homes are surrounded by a permaculture garden with a few farm animals, and are situated next to a dairy farm and the forest. If you are traveling by motorhome, we have a simple stopover.

Lidhem is a playful and family-friendly destination. A little bohemian and tranquil. Lidhem is only 20 car minutes away from Vimmerby city and the main attraction Astrid Lindgren World.

Lidhem, located in the northeastern part of Vimmerby, has a very rich history whose traces are still left in the landscape. The landscape reminds us of Astrid Lindgren's stories and Linnaeus' travels. Hilly and wooded with many lakes and red houses. The area is ideal for exploring on foot, by bike or by car. Sometimes it seems as if time stood still here. We really like to work and live here and to share this experience with our guests.

We have guests from all over Europe and even some from outside Europe. Guests who want to get away from the everyday noise and stress. Here in Lidhem it is peaceful, quiet and relaxing in all respects. More and more people think health and sustainable development are really important. Just like us, they would like to have genuine experiences with high quality and live the good life. But not at someone else's expense. Are you one of them?

Lidhem, 2 km outside Vimmerby city, belongs to the municipality of Vimmerby. The focus here in Vimmerby is on nature, garden and children's culture.

In Lidhem there is a permaculture garden. Here are sheep, bees, hens, pigs and a vegetable garden. We also have a little playground with trampoline, tree swing etc. and a raft to a small island in the pond. 

The forest is our playstation. Here is play and adventure for real. There’s a marked nature round and jogging trail. You can pick mushrooms, berries and wild flowers. You can swim in Gerssjön or Anen. The best experiences can not be bought, just enjoy!

In Vimmerby town you’ll find the themepark Astrid Lindgren's World and Astrid Lindgrens Näs, a cultural center with beautiful gardens. In the municipality there are Bullerby and Katthult, Virum moose park, Vimmerby Adventure and much more.

A few days in Vimmerby is really too short. Especially if you also want to enjoy everything else the beautiful north east Smaland has to offer! Think of Västerviks archipelago, the wooden town Eksjö and Skurugatan.

More information can be found at Vimmerby, Västerviks and Eksjös Tourist Office's website.
