It does look like a villa. Kind of like La Zarzuela Palace which used to be a hunting lodge and looks more like a villa than a palace.

imo, too bad its not at the north or south end of Gotland .... imagine the secludedness, the wide expanse of beach and hinterland, the waves lapping and conflicting as does the wind.

BTW how big is the land called Solliden ? How many hectares?
And is it fenced off from other properties on the land side?

Yes it is... and parts of the garden are private and the visitors are not allowed to go there.

ps, sorry about the crappy quality, but hey, better than nothing!
Thank you very much for posting this, Yennie :flower: Are these pics vid-caps?

Isn´t the beach house the "summer-home" of Victoria (& Daniel)? I mean is it true, that Victoria lives there or is there, when she (& Daniel) want(s) to be alone?

well, its not really vid caps. I took pictures of the tv screen with my digital camera.

I know that the rf spends a lot of time there but I´m not sure if one can sleep over in the beach house. But if so, I´m sure the princesses and the prince use it sometimes :P

Well, it seems to be a quite big beach house (it even looks bigger than the lodge/cottage in Storlien)...so there´s a high chance that there are rooms, where one can sleep (of course only sleeping and watching TV or playing chess, talking about god and the world... :P )

BTW an very clever idea to photograph the TV-screen!!

I dont remember really... I have it on video.
But the programme was made in the summer of 2001 so I think it was shown on tv in the fall.
It was a special programme about Solliden and it showed the king, queen and Victoria doing various things in the garden. I´ve never seen "so much" of Solliden before either...

Wow, it all looks great!

We've also visited Solliden 3 years ago and that was great too, we liked the park around it!

There´s one inside photo in the book "Sommarslottet" Its from the dining room...
and in a SVT special about the palace they showed the hall and there were paintings of Victoria, Carl Philip and Madeleine on the wall

I think there is a cottage close to the palace. And inside there are several guestrooms.

I was looking in a old book and I found this photo of the kitchen at Solliden. Its of queen Silvia with the chef at Solliden

A quite, non-royal kitchen imo :)

well, that picture is from 1993. But I dont think Silvia cooks, from what I understand its the chefs and sometimes the king that does all the cooking in the family :)
