About the accommodation

Welcome to Årås Kvarn and the historic Årås manor. Located in small Kölingared in beautiful Västergötland, east of Ätradalen, just outside Ulricehamn. An oasis right by the river Tidan, and the perfect starting point to discover our beautiful countryside.

Årås manor dates back to the 16th century and was at this time “the district’s foremost estate and manor”. Årås has been characterized by the presence of the nobility for many centuries, and was once owned by the family Gyllenstierna who was the national councilor of the Vasa kings.
Årås mill is located in the small village Kölingared, a beautiful oasis located by the river Tidan where it connects the lakes Jogen and Vållern. The village is rich in ancient monuments and church ruins and from here a wilderness trail stretches from open cultivation and cultural landscape to raised bogs and old-growth forests of a wilderness character.
At Årås kvarn you stay in picturesque and personally decorated rooms. In total there are 12 rooms and 36 beds as well as guest kitchens and social areas. There are also beautiful rooms for rent for weddings, baptisms or memorial services, but also for conferences and camps.
Årås is a wonderful place to just relax and do nothing, and if you are still eager to invent something, many activities in the area and in the area are waiting to be experienced. Explore the beautiful surroundings with varied nature and let your stay with us be a starting point for the journey of discovery.
