This is a 19th century manor house in an isolated rural location offering bed & breakfast. A similar arrangement to many of the French Chateaux If you need and/or want full hotel facilities this is not for you. There is no bar. If you want dinner it has to be by arrangement with the very amiable hosts. You need to be an independent traveller happy to "do your own thing" and yet happy to mingle with other guests in the library, lounge or dining room..
However, if you want something different and want to sample life in a sympathetically restored manor this is for you. All sorts of birds and wildlife are in the surrounding woods. Reindeer occasionally venture into the garden, particularly in the early morning.
A variety of rooms are on offer, some fully ensuite and with TV, some in a separate annexe. You need to telephone ahead and discuss your needs.
The small town of Monsteras is a quick easy 10 minute drive away. The larger more cosmopolitan Kalmar about 35 minutes away. It goes without saying that a car is absolutely essential.
The property boasts good high speed free Wi-Fi throughout although the signal is patchy in the annexe - many large chain hotels should offer this !
Breakfast is arranged very much to your personal tastes and requirements. The hosts are very flexible and can produce most standard European breakfast fare with a full range of juices, cereal, yoghurts etc.
Despite being a very old building all heating and plumbing is modern and works well. It was sunny but very cold when we stayed and the house was very warm and inviting. I do not usually sleep well when away from home but I slept long and heavy here ... testament to how quiet and chilled-out the place is.
I had a thorougly relaxing time and although it is not to everyone's tastes ... it certainly suited mine
