More information about Villa Berg

During the summer months, Villa Berg serves as a rural seaside hotel with guest rooms for couples and friends who sleep and eat well and enjoy exploring the activities and nature around Marholmen. Accommodation packages include breakfast, snacks and dinner. During the rest of the year, the villa can be rented for private meetings, corporate events, private celebrations or family gatherings for up to 20 people.

The villa has a long and beautiful history. At the beginning of the last century, wholesaler Nils Berg and his wife Hanna bequeathed parts of Marholmen to LO on the condition that less well-off families would be allowed to come to the island to rest. In 1915, 23 years before we had statutory holidays in Sweden, the villa opened as a holiday home for workers and their families.

The Jugendvillan has thirteen bookable guest rooms, 11 double rooms including one mini suite, and two single rooms that can accommodate up to 20 guests. Each of the rooms has its own bathroom. If everyone in the party wants a private room, there are nearby accommodations to book. A jetty with a bathing ladder below the villa and a relaxation area with a sauna downstairs invite you to swim all year round in the picturesque archipelago environment for complete relaxation.

Villa Berg's distinctive architecture, interior design, atmosphere and surroundings, rooted in Swedish labor history, have a natural color scheme that is at once harmonious, welcoming and modern. The interior design, by the architectural firm Krook & Tjäder, emphasizes sustainability and long-term thinking. The color palette consists of the villa's original colors and the interior is a mix of reused furniture from the villa's heyday and timeless design classics.

The villa is located on the island of Marholmen with a bridge connection to the mainland an hour's drive from Stockholm and Uppsala. During a visit here you will also find yourself in the middle of Roslagen with its exciting small towns, beautiful archipelago, flea markets and small-scale producers of everything from cheese to handcrafts sold in charming farm shops.

Looking for a place to make memories? At Villa Berg you can organize meetings, strategize, celebrate weddings and other life milestones with up to 20 people. When you book Villa Berg, we let you focus on your team, your family and yourself. We take care of everything while you eat well, have working technology and create lifelong memories with your party.

The villa is currently being renovated and will open in 2024 - keep an eye on our website! Requests for groups and business meetings are already being accepted.

The history of Villa Berg

The listed Villa Berg has a special place in our hearts here on Marholmen. It is named after the wholesaler Nils Berg and is designed in the Art Nouveau style of the early 20th century, a form of architecture inspired by the irregular and organic shapes of nature. The architecture blends in well with the island's rich vegetation that extends down to the shoreline and pier.

"Liquor may not be carried or consumed in the homes. Smoking and playing cards in the halls and corridors of the homes is strongly discouraged". These were the rules for those who used to visit the Holiday Home. But there were many other things to do. Bathing, fishing, playing board games, playing the guitar, finger-hooking, or reading. The holiday home had its own library where guests could borrow books.

The holiday home opened in 1915. Here, workers and their families could stay and eat for cheap, including drivers, tailors, engravers, typographers, stokers, railwaymen, municipal workers and the occasional ombudsman. The Holiday Home had the most guests in the 1940s, when two-week vacations became law. In the summer of 1940, 240 adults and 32 children lived here. Two decades later, the Holiday Home had barely half as many guests.

The holiday home was designed by architect Carl Danielsson-Bååk, who was also behind Grosshandlargården and Strandpaviljongen. The villa was restored in the early 1990s and painted in its original colors. During 2022-2023, the exterior of the villa was carefully restored back to its former glory. During the winter of 2024, the next step in the villa's history is taken when it is renovated inside and opens just in time for the summer with a new concept.
