The philanthropic thought that beauty refines a person, has had a long tradition in the Dickson family, who built Tjolöholm castle. The idea was that beautiful homes would help to create contented people, who would in turn go on to make a better society. With this idea in mind the worker’s village was built in the Swedish “National Romantic” style, surrounded by farming landscape, beaches and coastline. These houses have recently been refurbished, and are now available for rent. Each house has been divided into two apartments, each with a private entrance and garden. They are furnished in the turn of the century style, including a bedroom with a four-poster bed and traditional Swedish tilled fireplace, a large dining area and fully equipped kitchen, which includes an ornamental wood-burning stove. There are two further sleeping places in the dining room.
