Gyllebo »Österlen

Facts about Österlenbyn


Many draw an equal sign between Gyllebo and Ö Vemmerlöv, but it is better to call the village at the church for Ö Vemmerlöv and the houses around Gyllebosjön for Gyllebo.

On an islet in the beautiful bathing and fishing lake Gyllebosjön lies the ruins of an old medieval castle and the privately owned castle with associated large riding center. In the forests that surround the lake, many people wander all year round and in winter when the ice bears carry, there are many who fly on steel-shod foot on the lake.

South of the lake and right up to the old railway station Gyllebo lake there is a popular area with recreational buildings, but also here and there the year runthus. There is much forest, both deciduous forest and mixed forest north of Ö Vemmerlöv. In the old distillery today, a combined sourdough bakery and gallery is housed.

In and around the village there is a whole series of viable companies of various kinds. The nearest larger town with service like school and shop is Gärsnäs, a half mile to the southwest, but it is close to Simrishamn Also, barely miles. Bus connection north towards Rörum and east towards Simrishamn is in the village. The distance to the gourmet corner and the hotel in Karlaby, Karlaby Kro, is a couple of kilometers.
