Turn of the centry romance
We care about Lysekil’s history as a summer resort as the 1900’s turn of the century and about the beautiful, over 100 years old houses we have the privilege of operating our business through. We have carefully restored both villas and general areas with contemporary-style wallpaper, jugend furniture and a lot of pearls. Each room at Strandflickornas Havshotell is uniquely decorated and belongs to a historical person; sometimes real, sometimes taken out of imagination …
This is us!
Åsa and Bettina, have driven the company together since 1990. Bettina has in the past worked within the travel industy, travelling to the norwegian mountains, and the french alps where she even worked as a site manager. Bettina wanted to travel and “see the world”, she studied “travel and turism” and was completely motivated… Åsa studied economics in Lund with marketing as a focus. She imagined herself working for one of the worlds biggest companys for marketing… However, they wanted something else from their working life.. – And this we have not regretted for a second! Say’s Åsa. To run your own hotel and hostel with the variety is completely wonderful. It is furnishings and wages one day, marketing and cleaning the next. The feeling to be involved and influencing and see how it developes is unbelievably stimulating and satisfying. The motto for us is “have fun on the job”, there is space for playfulness and creativity. As it gives us the energy and a desire above all to manage other tasks even when they are not so fun… Below we offer a silent movie we created on an incredibly cold but creative day in November 1994 for a 100 year anniversary held for Villa strand.
