I know that I said I wasn’t going to post today, but then something intriguing popped up which I had to share with you! I was fascinated to read that a Swedish lodge has been included in the Oscars 2021 goodie bag, and it’s one I’ve known about ever since my trip to the area last summer. Located on a rocky outpost in the far reaches of the Swedish west coast archipelago, you’ll find Pater Noster, the Father of lighthouses. Once home to a lighthouse keeper and his family as well as a small community, today Lightkeeper’s Lodge on the small island of Hamneskär has opened its doors as a design hotel. Guests arrive by helicopter from Gothenburg or rib from nearby Marstrand. Once on the island, they are treated to beautiful, yet understated design, breath-taking nature, world-class seafood and the opportunity to relax in a hot tub or a secluded corner of the island. What a dream! Little wonder, it’s been included in the Oscars 2021 goodie bag! 

Could you imagine staying here? 

Can’t quite stretch to the cool 5000 SEK (€500 euros) per guest per night fee? Don’t worry, speaking from personal experience, you don’t need to be a superstar to enjoy these magical islands! 
I’ve travelled around this area by boat many times (it’s one of my favourite places in the world). Here are my ten favourite islands to visit! 
The east coast is also home to some incredible islands, including the Blekinge archipelago and Gotland! Well worth a visit. 
I hope you can make your way here one day once the dust has settled! Sweden is waiting for you! 
Wishing you a wonderful weekend!
