IN SOUTH­ERN GOT­LAND

Burge Gård Falud­den An hour and a half from Visby, in the south of the is­land, Burg Gård Falud­den is a won­der­fully peace­ful place to stay for a few days. Fully ren­o­vated by An­ders and Bir­gitta, the prop­erty is ad­ja­cent to a bird re­serve and 800 me­tres from a de­serted beach. Next to the splen­did fam­ily home, the large glasshouse some­times hosts wed­dings beside a flower gar­den (with a tree-house for the kids) and a kitchen gar­den that feeds the whole fam­ily in sum­mer. In his work­shop near the huge barn, di­vided up be­tween their three chil­dren, An­ders makes fur­ni­ture out of Got­land oak. Malin has fin­ished ren­o­vat­ing her third of the barn and vis­its her par­ents as of­ten as she can with daugh­ter Bon­nie. A true car boot sale fiend, she has put the fin­ish­ing touches to the in­te­rior decor: rat­tan swing chairs, vin­tage wooden horse, linen cush­ions… This au­then­tic, child-friendly refuge can be rented in sum­mer and is ideal for get­ting a taste of Scan­di­na­vian slow life. face­book.com/falud­den/ Körs­bärs­går­den A sunny day in Körs­bärs­går­den starts with a visit to an ex­hi­bi­tion with

hands-on ac­tiv­i­ties for chil­dren, then lunch out­side on the café ter­race, and fi­nally a game of chase in the park in and out of the brightly coloured sculp­tures. ko­rs­bars­gar­den.se Bar­gains ga­lore If you go through the town of Hemse, pop into the sec­ond-hand stores Röda Korset and Kuriåsa for clothes, fur­ni­ture and typ­i­cally Scan­di­na­vian dec­o­ra­tive ob­jects…
