The Edible Country - Strängnäs


Selaön’s beautiful scenery and winding lanes make it perfect for excursions. The largest lake island in Sweden, Selaön is also one of the areas with the most ancient monuments, boasting many runestones and burial mounds. Here, close to Äleby gård estate and the baroque Mälsåker Castle, the table is placed beneath ancient oaks with views across fields and water in the heart of a country-house landscape typical of Södermanland. Äleby offers tranquillity and genuine seclusion just 90 km from Stockholm, with the final 10 km on a no-through road before Äleby comes into view on a hill on the shores of Lake Mälaren. With the lake, forest, fields and large numbers of game animals, Äleby is an oasis for relaxation. Yet not far away is the picturesque town of Mariefred and the beautiful Gripsholm Castle.
