Facts about Österlenbyn


A stone's throw from the medieval castle Glimmingehus, along the road between Ö. Tommarp and Ö. Hoby, lies the small, but elongated, village of Glivarp in the middle of a hilly agricultural area with buried natural pastures, wetlands and moist foliage.

Glivarpa bog has a very rich bird life. There is also a scrub with a large stock of the beautiful orchid cork root. The buildings are mixed, farms, divisional and low-rise dwellings.

The distance to the sea is about half a mile and just over the mile to the vast sandy beaches from Kyhl towards Sandhammaren and Löderup. The nearest town with service like school and business is Hammenhög, four kilometers straight west.
