Gunnebo House & Gardens

Gunnebo_House_and_Gardens_01

Just a quick drive out of Gothenburg, Sweden you will find this organic farm-to-table, historic 1700’s estate of Gunnebo House & Garden. It’s a perfectly quiet and secluded spot surrounded in beds of lettuce, fields of livestock, rows of flowers with a sweet little country restaurant serving traditional Swedish dishes with simple country ingredients mostly grown right there on the farm. It was a beautiful example of a balance of life and alluring look back into a piece of Sweden’s history….

Guide to Gothenburg

Snapshots from Gothenburg, Sweden and some of the most beautiful places to see.

We recently took a road trip around the southern part of Sweden in a new Volvo XC90 which we picked up directly from the factory just outside the city of Gothenburg on Sweden’s west coast. Volvo has an overseas delivery program where when you order your car they will fly you to Sweden to pick it up and test drive it around the beautiful Scandinavian locations just as we did for a few weeks this past June. Once your journey is completed they will ship the car to you back home in the US. It’s a fun way explore a new country, get to know your car and make a ton of memories!

Our first stop on our #VolvoOverSeasDelivery was to Gothenburg, the gateway to West Sweden. This is what I loved: The people are so nice. The fresh seafood, especially the oysters, are amazing. The trams are not only beautiful with their blue lines rolling around the city but also very clean and easy to use. Gothenburg had a lovely balance of old architecture and cobblestone streets mixed with modern day conveniences.

RESTAURANTS

  1. Atelier – One of my favorite restaurants ever. Think champagne, roses, etched glass, velvet couches, and incredible seasonal, locally sourced food. One of the best meals from the entire trip!

2. Dorsia – Amazing dining terrace with a great sophisticated social scene.

3. Gabriel – Inside the “Fish Church” of Gothenburg, perfectly fresh seafood lunch not to be missed.

4. Norda – Beautiful for dinner with a very lush dining room.

5. Brewer – Sourdough pizza joint and craft beer bar for something more casual

6. Taverna – Stunning courtyard for a cozy dinner or dine inside surrounded by galleries of cool modern art.

Provence in Polaroid

Provence Polaroid film.

Everything in Provence touches your skin. The leaves of a rose bush may brush against your arm as you walk through a field. The light in the morning rakes angularly though a room illuminating your face. “Bonjour” the day says. The oil from the olives stick to your fingers, which I always enjoy rubbing into my hands like lotion. Wine inevitably presses againt your lips filling you with the energy of the vine, of life, that surrounds you in this sacred place. The air kisses your cheeks while you lay on a blanket under the dappled afternoon sun. Everything, though seemingly still, is alive here if you just slow down to feel it…
