Chapter 5 The Siljanstrand, the Siljansgården and the Green Hotel story
Restricted access

Chapter 5 presents three stories in close relation to each other. The Siljanstrand and the Green Hotel story concentrate the interest to first-generation activities and to the acquisition of a ‘glittering jewel’ and the realization of a ‘San Michele dream’. The stories indicate that ‘ownership’ of Siljanstrand and Green Hotel unfolds owning activities with much attention focused on renewal and development of buildings and land. The Siljansgården story refers to a Tällberg land with grass fields, juniper and rose bushes and birch trees. It includes a three-generation family’s involvement in activities oriented towards sports and recreation, education and guest home lodging. The activities open up to the social and the material, interwoven in the present with past activities recalled and a future imagined, highlighting a cultural achievement, a holistic treatment of body and soul, a ‘co-worker for Life’ and a beautiful Tällberg.
