Lådfabrikens entire ground is overlooking the sea and shows Johan’s great gardening interest. Quite an achievement when you consider that the winds can be salty and harsh. Take a look at this page: ‘flowers’. Lådfabriken is surrounded by an overwhelming number of flowers, plants and special trees. The most interesting trees are the peach, walnut and almond tree. Shrubs with raspberries, gooseberries, blueberries and various currants guarantee homemade jams for breakfast. As long as possible, there are fresh flowers next to the bed in each room. Even in winter there are beautiful Christmas roses to welcome you
The beach is close, only 30 meters away and here you can enjoy all that the sea, cliffs and beach have to offer. Above all, fresh air, space and ever-changing views of the water, the islands and the sky. Relax, swim around or enjoy the sunsets from the high cliff beside the accommodation. The sea water is shallow, many children have learned to swim here.
