Hotels & Lodging: Kafferosteriet in Österlen, Sweden

August 19, 2016

On a recent trip to Sweden, my home country, I spent a few days exploring Österlen (the southeast corner of Sweden), which is most famous for its bohemian settlers, picturesque villages, and rolling farmland. One of my most memorable stops? Kafferosteriet, a small organic-minded hotel located in the tiny town of Löderup. The young owners, Kim Kullberg and Michelle Hansson (they were only 21 when they took ownership of the place in 2011), jumped on the idea of running the hotel when the previous owners decided it was time to move on. Comfortable in their new roles (Michelle has a background in hotel and restaurant management and Kim studied economics), the friends have turned the hotel into a hotspot for locals and European travelers visiting the Österlen area.

Famous for designing classical, warm environments, he set out to create spaces that would enhance creative conversations among its guests—making them feel at home. Photo courtesy of Inredningshjälpen.

The library (guest lounge) was designed to encourage conversation and has a relaxed feel. Most of the furniture pieces come from Norrgavel.

Most of the food is organic and sourced from their own gardens or locally. “We’re located in a ideal gardening zone, so we grow our own produce. We even make our own pate since the local one doesn’t meet our standards,” Kim says. All the jams are made in-house from whichever berry is in season, and the garden herbs are used to garnish the guests’ evening drinks.
