Öijared lies on a peninsula between lakes Mjörn and Sävelången, in beautiful natural surroundings, that include large ancient woodlands replete with slopes of wood anemones, and an abundant and varied flora and fauna. Öijared Manor has been handed down from generation to generation and family to family since the 11th century, and has been shaped by landowners and crofters. Parts of the area are classed as of national importance because of their rich natural and cultural worth. Today on our 1750 hectares of land encircled by lakes we operate an open and long term sustainable bio-diversity. Our vision is that, by making it more accessible, Öijared will be a meeting place with space for reflection, as well as experiences, development and innovation.
