We’ll head to the countryside northwest of Gothenburg. Among meadows and grazing cattle the Tofta Manor has been situated for centuries. Feel like walking or swimming? A lovely nature reserve and the sea is closeby. Tofta Manor is a magnificent hotel- & meeting establishment and an eco-certified farm. An old grainstorage serves as the charming café Magasinet, also selling arts & crafts, as well as foodcraft from local producers.

* This summer you can enjoy lovely arts by mother & daughter; Annelie Holmén Hilding & Fanny Hilding. 

* On the 5th of July the gardener Annika Persson will have a Pop Up Shop Garden at Tofta Magasinet. She'll advice, inspire and sell lovely flowers, herbs & plants.

 

On the beautiful island Marstrand there has been a village since the beginning of the 13th century! It has traditionally been an important place for trading and fishing. 

The adorable cobbled streets and amazing wooden houses are truly special. Marstrand is well known for the walking paths, great swimming opportunities, shopping, sailing competitions, cafés & restaurants in the port … there is something for every taste!

The Carlsten’s Fortress sits on top of the island – giving Marstrand it’s famous silhouette. You will have a memorable experience of a fortress that was built during the 18th and 19th centuries – by prisoners sentenced to ”Marstrand-labour”.

After having spent three hours on Marstrand it’s time to head back to Gothenburg.
