Are you looking for a relaxing getaway?
Have you considered Sweden?
Come and let’s explore Skane’s stunning nature!
Last Summer, I attended a conference in Sweden’s Capital City. And after a week exploring in Stockholm City. I had a chance to explore the Province of Skane, the Southern most county of Sweden. I stayed in the locality of Degeberga situated in Municipality of Kristianstand.
I stayed in a Farm hotel, a converted barns providing an exceptional luxury living condition. The Farm Hotel Cocoonmeetings provides 2 converted barns with versatile double storey accommodation, with kitchen, lounge and jacuzzi. The reception area is in the main building, together with restaurant & al fresco cafe and adjacent locally produce souvenir shop. And an isolated building by field called “The Cocoon”, where they cater for conferences and meetings. The hotel caters for solo traveller, family and group guest, open all year round. With different outdoor activities nearby, it’s the best place to stay and enjoy and get close to the nature. And an eco friendly hotel generating their own electricity.
On arrival, I was welcomed by Bodil, she’s the owner and manager of Farm Hotel Cocoonmeetings. It was very casual check-in, she game me my room key and showed me around. After I had my key I was eager to find my room. It was in the second floor, climbing up the stairs you will first noticed the exposed timberwork and beams. And to my surprise I got my own balcony, allowing an abundance light to the room. With bonus stunning view of a vast expanse of the greenfield. And private stairs to the jacuzzi. There’s a cute red chair on the corner screaming at me to sit and laze around. But the double comfy bed is calling me, actually I had an afternoon nap!
On that evening they have pizza night. So I joined the other guest for dinner al fresco style. Watching the chef cooking the freshly made pizza on a wooden fired oven, was so amazing! Eating a freshly baked, thin crust pizza. I felt like I was transported to Pizza-La-land! Oh they also have pizza based dessert it was out of this world, so to speak.
If your looking for a great place to stay close to the nature and offers a great outdoor activities, I highly recommend The Farm Hotels Cocoonmeetings. I enjoyed my experience in this hotel, it is a great and unique place to stay and explore the nature nearby.
Enjoy the Great Outdoor Activities nearby:
The following morning, after a hearty breakfast we went for a hike around the nature reserve. The Forsakar Nature Reserve, the 2.5 hectares, consist of creeks, waterfalls and dominated by beech forest. It’s has a great walking path with signs well posted. The views were breathaking and there’s a picnic area, good place for “fika time”. Walking into the deep of the woods with the creek sounds on the background. And towards the end of the hike you will be welcome with the stunning Forsakar Waterfalls, a great place to relax before heading back.
If you like cycling, there’s a nearby cycling path. Its only 15 minutes drive to cycling trail starting point. “The Southeast Trail from Ahus to Rigeleje”. It is a 20 kilometres trail, offering stunning views from forest, lakes,coastal and greenfield.
