Facts about Österlenbyn

Virre City

East of the road between Stiby and Ö VemmerlövJust west of the railway crossing, a small road goes down through the village of Virrestad, which consists of a number of farms and some single-family houses. The surroundings are agricultural land. A little further north lies the old Virrestad's distillery, a room that is now a mecca for flea lovers when, for example, Gyllebo IF holds the market.

The area around beautiful Gyllebosjön is a very popular hiking area. The lake is a popular fishing lake and also a good bathing lake. The closest community with service is Gärsnäs about two kilometers west. Here you will find school, elderly care, shops, galleries, café, bus and railway station. Here is the Skånexpressen, the fast bus to Lund, as well as various local bus tours and Pågatågen Simrishamn-Malmö.
