Villa Sjötorp began life as a private summer residence and still has an air of old school glamour about it. Owner Ellika has carefully hand-picked every item in the house, and her sharp attention to detail and careful restoration is apparent throughout.
Victoria is here to help give you the inside track.
Guests enter through the gothic style entrance and into the large hall that forms part of the dining room. The feeling that you are in a friend's house (albeit quite a lucky one) increases as you go from room to room, and the fourteen bedrooms have all being individually decorated by Ellika. Iron beds, patterned wallpaper, hand crafted desks and large windows feature in every room, and each one is en-suite.
The restaurant leads through to the gardens, via trinket and pictured lined hallways, which are stunning and look out to the sea. The food is homely and delicious, and they boast an impressive wine collection - take a glass out to the garden with a good book and soak up the fantastic views.
A small path leads down to the beach where guests can rent kayaks or simply go for a walk. There is also golf course just minutes away and massages can be arranged.
Why we love it
100% bling free - the floorboards may creak a bit but it is all part of its homely charm. In fact, it would be a wonderful place for a Murder Mystery evening.
