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?

Yennie 04-22-2004 05:50 PM

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

hrhcp 04-22-2004 09:06 PM

That's too bad Yennie .... you couldn't sneak in with your camera, and we were so counting on you. :P

Here´s some pictures "from the inside" as we talked about before in the Solliden thread.
enjoy ;)

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?

Yennie 06-10-2004 05:20 PM

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

Lena 06-10-2004 05:28 PM

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!!

Thanks so much for the great pics, Yennie! :flower: May I ask what programme those images where shown on, and was it long ago? I must have missed it... Or is it from a video perhaps? *curious me* :P

Dennism 06-10-2004 10:14 PM

Great photos of Sölliden. I look forward to seeing more of it sometime.

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...

I went to Solliden in june 2002, it is such a beautiful place. I'm looking forward to see the pictures from the royal family going there this year. And hey, Victorias birthday is my birthday too :)

A few great pictures of Solliden from Getty, taken in connection with the Crown Princess' birhtday:

DKgirls 08-17-2004 09:16 AM

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 :)
