Idyllic farm hotel with a circular focus

New holiday apartments with Orbital Shower.Climate-positive experience in Ödevata. Ödevata Gårdshotell is a forerunner in sustainable lifestyle and tourism, which is constantly developing its climate-positive concept.

The latest project is a comprehensive renovation of a dilapidated old barrack house which is being transformed step by step into holiday apartments for families longing for nature. In these apartments the Ödevata team has chosen to install Orbital Showers.

Malin and Magnus Axelsson is a couple who are passionate about change. 16 years ago, they got the chance to buy a then completely dilapidated object consisting of a set of properties that were basically empty shells. Since then, a farm hotel has been built step by step from scratch with focus on beautiful accommodation of high quality. Ödevata Gårdshotell strives to become the most sustainable tourist facility in Sweden, if not the entire world. Not just for the experience, but to inspire others to make better choices as well.

Ödevata Gårdshotell is today a full-fledged tourist facility, but at the same time it is home and a real life project for the host family. On the farm there is also a small animal husbandry and a lot of crops.

From the beginning, there were three large and more or less dilapidated buildings on Ödevata. One house has been turned into an orangery and another house was rebuilt into what is today the family's climate-smart home. The third is "Axelsson's green lawn" which is now being converted into a holiday home in the true spirit of recycling.

- It is a venture that we would not have dared to make a few years ago. But now we know that our guests will understand because they have followed us for many years. We now choose completely different materials and construction techniques than during our earliest construction projects. We want to put the environment first and we know that the market is ready for a different and unique accommodation, say Malin and Magnus.
