The Place

The Place

Welcome to our unique villa with its flourishing garden, located in Visby’s most photographed alley. The place is a calm and green oasis right next to DBW’s Botanical Garden, less than 100 meters (300 ft) from the ocean shore.

The property is one of the largest in Visby innerstad. It is very well suited for families or groups of friends who wish to spend time together and experience Gotland.

The villa on Fiskargränd 5 is spacious and well-equipped and the location is excellent: calm and quiet, yet close to Visby’s restaurants, shopping and cultural hot spots.

The House

The house is more than 300 years old but has been renovated for improved comfort. There are seven bedrooms – five of which are located on the second floor. The house has many social spaces such as the living room, kitchen, dining room, lounge, balcony, tower and sauna. The total space of the house is close to 300 square meters and it can accommodate 16+ guests. Each guest will receive one set of satin bed linens and towels in various sizes

The Garden

The green and spacious garden is encircled by stone walls and plank fencing. The open space in the center is surrounded by trees both old and tall; Walnut, Mulberry, Acacia, and Ilex to new a few. Between the roses and peaches is a limestone patio with two charcoal grills, parasol, table and chairs and an outdoor kitchen.

There are multiple sets of outdoor furniture and sunbeds. Enjoy fresh lettuce from the garden on your breakfast sandwich.

You will also find other facilities such as the outdoor shower and garden sauna. In the corner of the garden is the parking space which can accommodate up to three cars. There are occasionally extra toilets in the garden.

The Garden Sauna and Shower

The garden sauna offers a relaxing steamy experience with its large olivine stone magazine. When the temperature gets too high, try the refreshing cold water mist on the benches outside or walk down to the ocean shore for a bath. The garden sauna can also be used as a cozy “external bedroom suite” for two. Enjoy showering outside in the fresh air with serene green surroundings.

Balcony & Glazed Tower

Enjoy the view of the flourishing garden, the city rooftops and the seemingly endless ocean surrounding Gotland. Enjoy a glass of wine while watching the ocean engulf the sun at the horizon.

Dining Room & Lounge

Dine with your family, friends or collegues in the elegant dining room. The table can extended to accommodate twelve guests. Relax in the Lounge and play some music.

Kitchen

The kitchen is spacious and well equipped with two sinks, microwave, hot air oven, induction cooktop, toaster, dishwasher, stereo sound system, tablet and a TV with Google Cast. There is also a Smart Speaker to keep you company and control the TV/sound. Here you can cook and bake without limitations.

Living Room

Plenty of space, powerful surround sound and a 65″ 4K TV with ChromeCast Ultra. There is also a tablet and a Google Assistant device to control the TV without effort.

Outdoor Kitchen

Dining in the garden gets more convenient with the outdoor kitchen. Equipped with a gas hob, sink, dishwasher and fridge to keep the beer cold, the food hot and the plates shiny.
