This conscious company offers unique and environmentally friendly lodging in rural luxury. “We offer special stays in our forest or our apartments, where personal attention is paramount. This place borders the Swedish wilderness but is still easily accessible,” explain co-owners Willem Terstegen and Mireille van Ruiven.
The small-scale company is proud of offering sustainable, inclusive guest experiences. “Whatever your beliefs, whether you are young, old, LGBTQ+ or vegan, we make time and space for you to relax in these surroundings,” Mireille says. “We strive to inspire tourists and local residents here to make the most of countryside living,” adds Willem.
The young company collaborates with businesses in the local village, region and beyond who share the same core values, and with whom their respective needs and strengths are a good fit.
Willem explains: “guests are increasingly recognising the environmental impact of travelling, and prefer a sustainable small-scale provider that actively works to keep the countryside livable. In a nutshell, travelling with a mission is hot!”
There are many reasons to stay at Näsets Marcusgård: a family holiday, a weekend with friends or a working holiday in one of the special holiday homes. The woodland cabins are ideal for couples, and for an unforgettable marriage proposal amongst the three-metre high pine treetops.
The activities and experiences change with the seasons, but vegetarian and vegan breakfasts in the woods are always available. Näsets Marcusgård plans to build a community in cooperation with similar European providers to spread its vision of sustainable travel.
