Bokvillan was built in 1872 by bookseller Gustaf Wilhelm Edlund as a summer residence. After the Edlund family, Bokvillan has i.a. functioned as Arabia’s porcelain factory director’s official residence. The villa was renovated in 2010-2012, and the interior was renovated to match the late 40s style. Bokvillan was opened to the public in September 2013.

The two-story villa has spaces for many needs! With us you can organize hobby groups, courses and clubs, parties and other occasions! In addition to the bonquet hall, the villa has different types of spaces, study rooms, kitchen with dining room, library, etc.
