ON THE ISLAND OF FÅRÖ
Kutens Bensin and Crêperie Tati There’s no better place to party on the island than here at Kutens Bensin, once a petrol station, now a cult, childfriendly concert hall and bar. Have a drink between the stacks of fridges and wrecked 1960s cars, take a twirl on the dance floor to the sound of rock’n’roll and chat to a rockabilly icon like Tomas, owner of the place and a living island legend. The Crêperie Tati, next to the bar, is run by Bretons, so you can treat yourself to a classic pancake against a retro doll’s house backdrop. facebook. com/kutens.bensin/ Bergmanscenter To (re)discover or learn more about Ingmar Bergman’s life and career, check out Bergmanscenter. The director made several of his films on Fårö, where he also fell in love with the actress Liv Ullman and where he died in 2007, in a house overlooking the sea in which he’d lived like a hermit. Photos, screenings and much more. Less suitable for children but a must for getting a true sense of the island. Helgumannen Fiskeläge The fishermen’s cottages in our fashion feature date from the 19th century. Located in the heart of the Digerhuvud nature reserve, this is an ideal place for a picnic. The wood cabins and boats provide kids with endless ideas for play. Langhammars There are those who try to see faces when staring at these rocky monoliths and those who dash towards them to climb to the top. One thing is sure, nobody remains indifferent to this spellbinding, unique landscape, where Bergman shot films such as
Through a Glass Darkly in 1961 and Persona in 1966. Sudersand beach A Caribbean beach in Sweden! Fine white sand, azure blue sea and, best of all, hardly any people even in summer. In short, paradise. The pine trees lining the beach bend into soft curves when the wind blows and camping is allowed if one leaves the car on a nearby path.
