Grade: Standard

Introduction

Fifteen minutes by ferry from Gothenburg, the 13-room Pensionat Styrso Skaret stands on a picturesque little island found in the middle of the west coast's unspoiled archipelago.

A beautiful and traffic free area, the island is festooned with boat huts, shoreline meadows and old-fashioned Swedish houses.

For many, it is hard to believe that such a secluded haven can be found so close to the metropolis of Gothenburg. The guesthouse-bb provides a warm welcome to guests, who can enjoy the area's inspiring seaside walks and the unique beauty of the island.

The restaurant celebrates the surrounding sea, with a menu of freshly-caught food and other locally-sourced delicacies flavoured with the guesthouse-bb's own herb garden. While visiting, guests are encouraged to embrace the natural area and bicycles and kayaks can be rented in order to explore the island. Boat trips with local fishermen can also be arranged and whisky tastings are occasionally held on site.

All of the 13 rooms are individually decorated with either a garden or sea view and all have en suite facilities.
