Vallåsens Värdshus is a family owned concept, challenging the terms hotel, hostel and restaurant. Our place is different than all those labels. We are welcoming and personal. The atmosphere is warm – you are treated as family when you visit ours. The food we grow onsite, the stillness of the forest and the unique décor, mixing handmade with Scandinavian design classics also contribute to the warmth. This is a place where you can be yourself and relax.
Our location is convenient. We are situated right in-between Malmö/Copenhagen and Gothenburg on the southwestern coast part of Sweden. The ridge to the immediate south of us, know as Hallandsåsen, is basically a large playground for hikers, runners, cyclists and skiers. A long time ago, the oldest part of Vallåsens Värdshus was a hunting villa – a place to go for outdoor life and relaxation. Today, we fill a similar need with guests looking for recreation, nature, adventure and stillness.
A modern hostel
We offer accommodation as a modern hostel. All our rooms (23) are doubles or family rooms with their own private bathroom. High quality cotton bed linen and towels are always included, as is the final room cleaning and access to our guest kitchen/bbq area. What's different from a regular hotel is that you make your own bed and we don't always offer breakfast and dinner, depending on the season.
We also offer a wedding/party venue for up to 80 guests on our premises, and the option of renting the entire place (rooms and all) for your event. We have a large garden that blends into the forest and 15 km of marked trails for hiking, running and mountain biking. You can rent a mountain bike onsite and book a guided tour if you wish. Our small stage is host to the occasional opera performance or concert in summer. Our restaurant is open seasonally – in July for example, it's open daily and leading up to Christmas for a traditional Swedish julbord. Moa is our chef, and her cooking is lovingly prepared largely using locally produced food, vegetables grown in our own garden and delicacies found in the forest around us. Please inquire when you book if the restaurant is open or if it's a time of self-catering only.
