ON THE IS­LAND OF FÅRÖ

Milk Magazine (English) - - LIVE THE EXPERIENCE -

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.
