AS THE OLD GRANDMOTHERS TIME
Unique and comfortable accommodation in tranquil surroundings of Falköping and Hornborgasjön. Lying halfway between the mediaeval monasteries of Gudhem and Varnhem on VastraGotalands famous pilgrim route is Nästegården. one of the areas best preserved farms dating back at least 300 years.
A stones throw to the northwest lies the lake of Hornborgasjön, Spectacular each spring and autumn as resting place for tens of thousand of migrating birds. A wonderful place to witness the Trandansen or courtship dance of the Crane (Grus grus). Nästegården Bed and Breakfast offers unique and comfortable accommodation in a lovingly restored “flygel” or annexe in the tranquil surroundings of Sätuna. Using traditional craftsmanship and materials, the house has been rejuvenated. An aeshetic from mid 1800 has been recreated with hand made wallpaper, original colour schemes using natural paints, hand blown window panes and original wood floors. The kitchen boasts an old Husqvarna wood burning stove for cooking, the bathroom retains charm, but meets modern requirements. We have created a genuine and peaceful atmosphere. The beds are iron framed and the breakfast is cooked on the stove using locally sourced ingredients.
The area around Nästegården, which is steeped in history and also offers stunning scenery, food and culture, are worth discovering by foot..
Nästegården is open the whole year, and in winter the rooms have extra heating from wood burning stoves.

You can be certain of a very warm welcome from Paul and Matilda who make you feel ‘at home’ as soon as you arrive. I would like to have stayed longer and will definitely go back again as soon as possible and will not hesitate to recommend it to everyone. This five star (could be six) is without question one of Sweden’s best kept secrets.” David Brown, England
“We couldn’t have found a better place to live “förr i tiden.” Everything was perfectly wonderful – breakfast, conversation, atmosphere and the charming hosts” Linnéa & Truman, Washinton.
