Petters Gård is surrounded by woodlands and meadows. It is within easy walking distance of a shielded sand beach at lake Lygnern, which stretches a full 20 kms from Fjärås to Sätila. It is the perfect place for water sports and fishing. Canoes are rented out closeby and fishing licences can be bought from the local agriculture shop. Should you be more interested in surfing however, we are only a 10 minute drive away from the sea and Sweden's best surfing spot, Åsa.
Sightseeing is easy around here, with a myriad of historic sites within driving and biking distance, and an abundance of nature experiences on your doorstep. We are located on one Sweden's most famous touristic biking routes, 'Lygnern runt' (i.e. a bike tour around lake Lygnern) and have most of Sweden's wildlife passing through the garden: elks, deer, wild boar, and even lynx.
For the more urban souls, we are located close to several larger cities and are at the heart of a renowned shopping district spanning from Gothenburg with all of its quaint boutiques in the north to Freeport outlet in the same community, and bargain shopping centre Ullared in the east. (Ullared truly is an experience and draws customers from all over northern Europe. It is a Mekka for bargain seekers.)
Here are some of the highlights of the area:
Tjolöholm Castle (in the picture above)
four fortresses: Varberg, Älvsborg, Bohus, Marstrand
Gäddevik nature reserve
