Liljons Gården - Your Dream Country Retreat
Liljons Gården is a small family owned country estate located in beautiful and tranquil surroundings in the heart of Skåne (Scania) in the southernmost part of Sweden.
Part of the estate are two guest houses for self-catering stays, "Drängalängan" (The farm workers' cottage) and "Pigastugan" (The maids' cottage). They date back to the 18th century and used to be the residence of the local farm workers. We have spent the last couple of years carefully restoring the properties in a delicate and considerate way.
We have taken the utmost care to ensure that the charm of all the original features such as oak beams and high ceilings are restored to their former glory, giving them a long overdue facelift. They now proudly represent the charm and history of the 18th century with the exclusive interior and modern amenities of the 21st.
We are a multilingual family, with Swedish and English as our mother/father tongues. We also cope in German and a little French.
We welcome you to come and stay at our guest houses, you will not be disappointed!
In spring the whole countryside springs into life. The budding of the trees, the chirping of the birds returning from their winter retreats, snowdrops and crocuses rubbing their sleepy eyes as they look up at the warming sun.
In summer an explosion of colours, vibrant greens, yellows, reds... you name it. The countryside celebrates in full regalia as the summer sun really makes it's arrival known. A truly enjoyable chorus of birds singing, could turn even the least likely person into a keen birdwatcher. Our free range hens roam free forraging for worms and other goodies.
Autumn is just as pleasing on the eye, as the countryside now turns into the most amazing shades of gold, yellow, red and brown. The hectic time of summer is exchanged for a more serene and peaceful pace of life. The animals are busy scurring around for food getting ready to face...
Winter, as it eventually arrives and wraps the countrside in a blanket of frost or maybe even snow....Whatever the time of year you are sure to see wildlife. We see deer and birds of prey on a daily basis. Other occasional visitors are wild boar, badgers, polecats, pinemarten, not to mention of course Skånes favourites the storks and cranes.
Whatever time of year you decide to visit us you are sure to enjoy the everchanging and beautiful countryside most enchanting.
Whichever season is your personal favourite and whether you are the adventurous type, who likes to explore the countryside or the laid back type, who would rather sit and enjoy a Pimms and cucumber sandwich on the patio, you will always find something to wet your appetite here!
