Below you’ll find tips on what to think about and some good to know-information.
Securing a roof over your head is the first thing on the list if you are planning to stay in Åre for a longer period of time. And it is a good thing to not only think about the costs but also the location and whether your planned accommodation suits your needs.
Some questions to start with:
- Are there grocery stores and other service points near by or is it okay-to not have those things within walking distance?
- Is public transportation available where your accommodation is located?
- Is parking included in your accommodation?
- Does the rent include Internet connection?
- Is there enough space for inviting friends and family to stay?
- Is there a desk or another comfortable option for you to sit at?
When you have decided what type of accommodation you are looking for you can start by checking with the accommodation services, such as This is Åre, AGO i Åre and SkiStar that are available in Åre. You can also check at airbnb.se and various Facebook pages if there are private housing options available for rent. Some hotels offer longstay as well (see below). Hotels that don’t have specific longstay offers might also adjust their price if you are staying for a longer period of time.
Check outside Åre village, for example in Tegefjäll, Ullån, Duved or Undersåker. Prices are often reduced if you search a bit further from Åre center.
