We are open every day all year round. Some months it may be a good idea to contact us before you come so that we are on site when you arrive.


About Ödevata: The sustainable holiday paradise in the middle of Småland

Welcome to Ödevata, the little paradise in the Småland forest. The farm rests between several lakes and is about 10 km outside Emmaboda, and only a short drive from The Kingdom of Crystal, Öland and Astrid Lindgren’s home town, Vimmerby. If you are traveling through Småland, we look forward to meeting you and make sure you enjoy yourself on your journey with personal service and of course, we try to make our guests’ wishes come true!

Since 2006, we, Malin and Magnus Axelsson, have developed Ödevata from a disused state prison – which then stood empty and deserted for nine years – to a fishing and activity holiday farm with access to beautiful nature. We maintain the farm to the highest standards. With great commitment, we make sure that Ödevata offers new experiences every time you come to stay with us.

We hope you enjoy your stay and don’t want to leave! Ödevata is a complete tourist establishment in the classic sense, but at the same time it is our home that we poured our hearts and souls into building. We have a small animal farm, on which we grow and harvest different crops. As well as, it is where we build and start various exciting projects in environmental work. We and our employees are happy to share these experiences with you. Our guests are always welcome to ask questions about the farm and our business.

The passion and care for this unique place is felt in everything Ödevata has to offer. From the chickens and bees deliver fresh eggs and honey to the country hotel’s breakfast table, to filling the shelves with the homemade fresh apple juice we prepare for sale in our small shop. We also prepare all the gears and boats in the shop to be rented out to fishing enthusiasts who visit Ödevata during any season!

Guests from all over Europe have already found their way to our paradise between the lakes and often large groups spend their holidays here. But Ödevata is also well known in the Kalmar region for its comfortable accommodation, conferences and weekend trips. Anyone who wants to fish on a Sunday or want to do something spontaneous is welcome to Ödevata in the middle of the wilderness.

It should be easy for our guests to find here, book a room and get their wishes fulfilled. Therefore, do not hesitate to contact us: We are here to service you, and to support you so that your meeting, day trip, weekend trip or holiday at Ödevata will be as relaxing or active as you wish.
