An introduction to SynVillan

How would you describe SynVillan in a nutshell?

SynVillan is like a mirage on a two billion-year-old mountain overlooking the Baltic Sea shore at Mahraviken. Translating as “Illusion Villa”, it is constructed from stainless steel, glass and straw atop shiny, steel pillars.

What is the story behind SynVillan, what was your inspiration to create it?

In the 1940s, Eriksberg's founder, Bengt Berg, started to fence the area to show urbanised man how nature works. At Eriksberg, the biodiversity has been preserved and the area has been transformed into one of Scandinavia’s most interesting destinations.

As part of the next step in Eriksberg’s evolution, we are helping more people to experience it up close with rooms set within nature. Our guests have the opportunity to experience close contact with the reserve’s wildlife and enhance their understanding of protecting the natural world.

How would you describe the atmosphere and the interior design of SynVillan?

Architect Thomas Sandell has captured Eriksberg's DNA in a way where traditional craft meets high-tech materials. The building's modern expression in design, coupled with history and the site itself, interact in a natural way. The furnishings are custom-built, traditional and modern.

SynVillan rooms & rates

The shape of SynVillan stems from a traditional Swedish house. While the outside is covered with a polished, patterned steel plate whose reflective properties are aimed to create the illusion of a dissolved house, the interior is designed to reflect the colours of nature.

SynVillan features one bedroom and a kitchenette, which is powered by solar energy and gas. In the hallway leading to the living room is a bunk bed for 2 more people. In the living room, there is a glass slab in the floor that overlooks a feeding place where wild animals come to eat.

Please note that there is no running water and the toilet is a Cinderella incineration toilet. Showers are available at the relaxation area at the main hotel area.

The location of SynVillan

SynVillan is situated in the middle of Eriksberg Hotel & Nature Reserve — Scandinavia’s largest game reserve — where you’ll be greeted by wildlife on their own terms. SynVillan is located 10 minutes by car from the main hotel where guests can take a shower and use the facilities of the hotel.

The reserve is around 15 minutes by car from Karlshamn, where you’ll find several stores, and about 40 minutes to the largest town in the area, Karlskrona. The closest beach is around 15 minutes away in Köpegårda.

When is the best time to visit Blekinge?

365 days a year! Really, it depends of the interests of the guests and whether they want to experience the region with or without a lot of other visitors.

During spring and summer, a lot is happening in the natural world, with newborn calves, lambs and piglets. In the game reserve, there is a lake with one of the world’s biggest stocks of red water lilies, which flower from midsummer until September. September is also the start of the mating season and you can hear the red deer’s powerful bellowing throughout the reserve. In winter, the pike fishing in the Baltic Sea is outstanding.
