Eco by StrandNära – Organic B&B

Organic Bed & Breakfast anno 1926

Welcome to StrandNära, the organic B&B on Öland. StrandNära is more than a bed & breakfast. It is an atmosphere and a home. A home that welcomes its’ guests in an unpretentious and relaxed way. We always put the guest at the centre and focus on quiet luxury, good organic food and comfortable, beautiful surroundings.

The rooms are simply decorated and furnished with everything you need. The focus is on the details and the beautiful surroundings close to the sea. All rooms are full of natural light.

StrandNära was originally intended to be a summer residence. It was built as a summer home by mrs Julia, who opened the beatiful house for guests the summer of 1926.

The building was thoroughly renovated in 2008-2022 by it´s owners, Erica & Mikael Anerhaf, who carefully furnished and preserved the beautiful house. Erica focused on creating an atmosphere that is true to the natural surroundings and history of the place, while maintaining the feeling of visiting a warm, private home. The bed & breakfast is open all year long and we send you a warm welcome to the island and StrandNära.
