Alan Rogers Review

Well placed for touring Sweden’s Riviera and the fascinating and beautiful island of Öland, this large, family run site, part of the Krono group, has 540 marked and numbered pitches of which 400 are for touring. Arranged in rows on open, well kept grassland dotted with a few trees, all have electricity (10/16A), and 112 also have water. An unmarked area without electricity can accommodate around 60 tents. The site has about 140 long stay units and there are cabins to rent. The sandy beach slopes very gently and is safe for children and they can use the floating pontoon complete with slides. Reception is efficient and friendly with good English spoken.

In high season children’s games are organised and dances are held twice weekly, with other activities on other evenings. Nearby attractions include the 7 km. long Öland road bridge and the 400 old windmills on the island (in the 19th century there were 2,000). The southern tip of Öland, Ottenby, is a paradise for birdwatchers. Kalmar and its castle, museums and old town on the mainland, Eketorp prehistoric fortified village, Öland Djurpark, and the Swedish Royal family’s summer residence, Solliden, are all worth visiting.
