Spring is coming to Rute and within a month there should be a multitude of blåsippor (hepatica) blooming in the park beside the ancient stone wall. The cranes return to Fardume around mid-March and their calls fill the evening skies.
Our country home has a fabulous panoramic view to the south and west overlooking fields and meadows towards Fardume Lake – a designated bird sanctuary. The nearby marshes, grass and hedgerows provide a perfect haven for a multitude of birds and other wildlife like foxes, hares and even the occasional roe deer. Thrill to the call of cranes and geese while enjoying the magnificent scenery.
The Gotlandic countryside will delight you with its spring flowers, lovely sunny summer days and wonderful autumn colours! Gotland is a botanist's dream come true with the succession of wild flowers beginning with Hepatica in April, wood anemones and cowslips, viper's bugloss and akelia to name a few, through over 35 species of orchids which bloom in May and June. Biking is a pleasure on Gotland with rolling fields and forest scenery, roadsides full of wildflowers and small fishing hamlets on stony coasts. I have a number of veteran cycles available for guests allowing you the chance to explore the local sights by bike. Avonlea lies near the coast (about 1 km to Valleviken with sandy shallow beach, harbour and restaurant), with grocery stores in Fårösund (15 km) bike rentals and ferry to Fårö, and Lärbro (10 km) that also has a superb greengrocer. There are many lovely sandy beaches in the neighbourhood as well as magnificent stonestack fields, cafés and a bakery.
I’ll be happy to tell you about all the interesting things you can see on walks/rides in the neighbourhood. I also offer trail riding for experienced riders. Explore the area on my lovely Connemara ponies or take a walk on the many forest trails or across the fields to the lake with bird-watching tower. It's a birdwatcher's paradise!

I am a Canadian who's lived on the beautiful island of Gotland for the past 39 years. Alongside running my Bed and Breakfast I teach English as a home language and also work as a free-lance translator from Swedish to English. My passion is my Connemara ponies and horseback-riding. I am happy to offer assistance to foreign guests so that they can discover the treasures Gotland has on offer: historical, scenic and cultural. My home is my castle and it is a pleasure to share the lovely peaceful pastoral scenery here at Avonlea with my visitors.
