Hostels | Cabins
Orrefors holiday village consists of 15 homely cabins with 3, 4 or 6 beds. The cabins lie in a wooded area with innumerable walking trails and only a few metres from the millpond. In the middle of the countryside but still with access to all the facilities needed for an enjoyable relaxing leisure time.

There are shared WCs and showers in the holiday village, a shared kitchen and a common room with a TV. Something which is much appreciated by our guests is our sauna with a wood stove, next to the millpond. and the possibility to eat breakfast in the old millhouse.

For the younger guests we have a nice play area and the possibility for children to swim in the pond.

Cabins can be rented both on a weekly and daily basis.

Surroundings
The Kingdom of Crystal is one of the most well-known and unique tourist attractions, with nothing similar anywhere else in the world. The Kingdom of Crystal consists of 15 glass factories within a radius of a few miles in the municipalities of Kronoberg and Kalmar, with many of the world’s most renowned glass manufacturers, such as Orrefors and Kostaboda. Here you can watch skilful glass craftsmen at close hand as they transform the syrup-like mass into beautiful glass works of art. In addition to the spectacular glass artwork, the region also offers glass studios, emigration culture, music festivals and a rich food culture.

The countryside is also very close by in beautiful Småland. Fresh air, pure water, wooded wildernesses, innumerable lakes and babbling streams create a harmonious backdrop for all the artwork and history that characterises the entire region. During your stay with us, whether only a long weekend or a longer holiday, you can choose between historical tours, hiking, cycling, fishing, swimming, horse-riding, mushroom and berry-picking or a wide range of events that are organised every year in Nybro.

If the kids want something extra special to remember after the summer, Astrid Lindgren´s World will provide them with many magical moments. The same goes for pony riding at a riding school.

The mill
Riveberg Mill is an old millhouse used for grinding flour once upon a time.

Nowadays there are no such activities but the millhouse remains in memory of times gone by. Water still rushes by behind the mill...

”Hytten var for primitiv til vores smag. Der manglede gode madrasser, bad toilet og køkken, men den var pæn og ren. De fælles køkken og toilet faciliteter var ok og pænt renholdte. Værten, Heider var venlig, imødekommende og service minded. beliggenheden var smuk, selv om vi syntes flyveren var malplaceret:-) Vi kan...”
