Frigsarve – a Tusculum for the soul

In Rone, between Hemse and Ronehamn,

on the Swedish island of Gotland, lies beautiful Frigsarve. A dreamy limestone village, whose oldest buildings, such as Blå Salen, date from the late 18th Century. It is intriguing to think that this building was built at the time of the French Revolution and of Gustav III of Sweden’s final fateful days.

Nestling on a ridge,

the courtyard has views far to the east and of beautiful sunsets to the west. There’s a mulberry tree in the garden. It ripens late in the season, like a person, in late summer/early autumn, and its berries taste wonderful.

Far from the hustle and bustle of the city,

time stands still here. You can see the darkness and hear the silence. On a clear night, the starry sky and the full moon take your breath away. This is a place where you can dream and rediscover your soul.

The name Frigsarve comes from

Frigg who, according to Norse mythology, was the wife of the god Odin. She represents a goddess, and an archetypal mother earth. Her day is Friday. In ancient times, it was thought that nobody worked at their spinning wheels on Thursday evening because Frigg would come at midnight to weave the sky’s clouds.
