This summer I visited one of the Swedish islands called Gotland. Gotland is known for its barren landscape, beautiful beaches and lime stone pits. There I found this pearl, a hotel called Furillen.
Furillen used to be a place used by the military – an area surrounded by barbed wire which tourists as well as inhabitants on Gotland stayed away from. But when the military abandoned Furillen, Johan Hellström started to use the area and the old lime stone factory for his photoshoots, since the environment was unique the light absolutely incredible. In 1999 he bought Furillen, with all its surroundings, and started to transform the lime stone factory into a hotel and restaurant. Today Furillen is listed as a member of design hotels.
The result is simply brilliant. Therapy for the soul.
