Four years ago, when architect Kristina Wachtmeister and her husband inherited an estate located outside the village of Knislinge, they converted its 18th-century farmhouse into an 11-room hotel. The hotel, called Wanås (pronounced va-noos) after the estate, is renovated with sustainable oak (sourced from the estate forest) and limestone floors, vintage tile, and custom or found furniture. Wachtmeister’s understated interiors occupy the space between historic and modern, polished and approachable. Here’s a look.
For booking information, visit Wanås Hotel; pricing ranges from 1,650 SEK ($200 USD) to 2,200 SEK ($260) with dinner per person per night.
