Stentorps history

Stentorp is a jugend style villa directly by the sea, build in 1917 by fabricant Joakim Vilén. The steamship brought the family to the jetty for the summer holiday. The sauna by the sea, “Moominhouse” built at the same time is now used as a cottage to rent. As late as in the 60ies the electricity, water and drain was installed. The cellar was opened to a “bodega” which now functions as the sales exhibition the year around.
