Peasants & Priviliged
A relaxing and interesting daytour in beautiful scenery awaits you!
The charming Äskhults By is well preserved and shows us authentic life in a tiny hamlet in the 1800's.
From Äskhult to the opposite sort of life among the nobility in the early 1900's at Tjolöholms Castle. A remarkable arts & crafts castle in Tudor style with amazing park neighbouring the sea!
June 13, July 9 & 26, August 2, 12 & 29.
Äskhults By is a charming genuine intact hamlet, consisting of a few grey shimmering houses in an astonishing landscape surrounded by meadows and old fashioned farming.
Thanks to a guided tour you will be amazed when inside the tiny houses. You will be told the story about the village and it’s former inhabitants.
On the premises there is a cosy coffee-cottage where also handicraft is being sold. We recommend a stroll along the paths outside the hamlet, maybe to the lake closeby.
From the farminglife we set off to Tjolöholm Castle, which is in Tudor style and is Sweden’s leading Arts and Crafts property. The building of the castle was finished in 1904 and the castle was at that time extremely modern. For example they had one of the first vacuum cleaners, which weighed almost a ton and was drawn on the outside of the house by a horse!
The exhibition of this year is ”Dresses and Decadence – The stylish 1920s”. You will have a taste of glamor, fashion and the life at Tjolöholm’s Castle during the 1920s. (Due to Corona there will be no guided tour in the castle, but you can visit the 1st and 2nd floor on your own).
The castle sits amazingly in beautiful scenery close to the sea. You can stroll in the park or the closeby nature reserve, have a swim at the beach, shop real nice things in the boutiques and naturally have a yummy fika! Do you bring kids with you? If so, they will love the huge indoor play area!
