I've been twice and both of the times has been really good! The first time was for a guided tour and now last weekend for the Christmas market. It was a lovely event with a great selection of products to buy and great selection in the cafe. The glögg tiramisu was the best desert I have had in years! I want it every day! The sandwiches were also great. The interior design at Tjolöholm is amazing and the vibe in the building is also really cool. I want to come back about twice a year! :)

I absolutely loved the tour of this beautiful castle and surrounding land. The guided tour is in Swedish but there are English materials. I liked learning the history and enjoyed seeing some of the Downton Abbey exhibit on display. The interior is well restored and preserved. Outside there were food trucks and a fair as it was the weekend.

Large nature spot with beautiful small church and british-looking castle. Christmas market was very worth visiting, you can find some local products and have fika at one of their cozy cafes.

Château des Ducs de Bretagne

The Château des ducs de Bretagne (Castle of the Dukes of Brittany) is a large castle located in Nantes. It served as the centre of the historical province of Brittany until its separation in 1941. It was the residence of the Dukes of Brittany between the 13th and 16th centuries, subsequently becoming the Breton residence of the French Monarchy. Today the castle houses the Nantes History Museum.

The restored edifice now includes the new Nantes History Museum, installed in 32 of the castle rooms. The museum presents more than 850 objects of collection with the aid of multimedia devices. The castle and the museum try to offer a modern vision of the heritage by presenting the past, the present and the future of the city. Night-time illuminations at the castle further reinforce the revival of the site. The 500-metre round walk on the fortified ramparts provides views not just of the castle buildings and courtyards but also of the town.
