Hello friends! I hope you had a lovely break over Easter. We nipped away to my father-in-law’s house in Kullaberg (I once wrote a guide to that beautiful part of Sweden here – it’s well worth a visit!). 

Our summer cottage is on the next peninsula North – which brings me to today’s home tour in Öllov, not far from where we are on the Bjärehalvön! 

I once had the pleasure of capturing and writing about a ‘Skånegård’ – a traditional Scanian farmhouse resting around a cobbled inner courtyard –  just up the road for my first book ‘Modern pastoral’ (later updated to Relaxed Rustic) and this tour took me straight back to that wonderful spring day! 

With parts of the thatched house dating back to 1870, the pretty Skånegård has been newly renovated to maintain the traditional charm of the property (think solid stone walls, exposed beams and painted wood ceiling) but brought up to date to ensure year-round comfort. And now, it’s looking for a new owner to take care of it and enjoy the beautiful scenery of the Bjärehalvön. Could that be you? 

If you hop over to the real estate page, you’ll also see that there’s a barn begging to be done up for a Midsummer party! And who are we to argue? 

I can just imagine a Sunday here – the fire going, a roast in the oven, music playing….  that’s the beauty of an open-plan space, you can all be in the same room with a million different activities happening all at once. 

Would you like to see a few other Swedish country homes today? Feel inspired by: 

It’s so nice to be back on the blog again after a mini break. Thank you for stopping by today!
