= marks the location of this home
After crossing several small islands on a narrow road and bridges only wide enough for one car at the time, you will reach the island Saltö. Beeing a national park, it is well preserved with just a few buildings, and without new developments after the 60's... Build originally by a lover of classical music as a retreat for musicians and composers, the place "Saltögården" provides a unique atmosphere of peace and tranquillity. Situated in probably the most scenic part of the west coast archipelago of Bohuslän in Sweden, if offers a truly special experience of coast life in Scandinavia. Hiking and kayak paddling are outside the doorstep, as well as beatiful beaches at the island.
