Our house in Fiskebäckskil


Fiskebäckskil is an old and genuine shipping community with narrow sidestreets and houses decorated with fancy carpentry work. In the middle of the 19th century the inhabitants gave up fishing and became freight-skippers instead. They built themselves big and fine houses and were thus prepared when the seaside resort era started at the turn of the century. Fiskebäckskil became elegant and fashionable and still host many summer inhabitants from our capital. The artist Carl Wilhelmsson originated from here and his studio is preserved and inhabited by his relatives. Reproductions of his paintings can be seen at the Gullmarsstrand Hotel on the waterfront. The food is good and the bar upstairs makes you feel like you are on a ship's bridge at night-time. Stroll the town's narrow lines for an hour or two, enjoy the picturesque car-free surroundings and a meal at "Captain Sture", a restaurant with oldfashioned fishing interiors nearby the church (built 1772). For an extensive night-life, take the 10 minute ferryboat to Lysekil.
