A slice of Swedish Hospitality- Bodil

Welcome to Maglehem – a small village that has become my place on earth! I am Bodil and live in the beautiful area of Österlen.

A Slice of Swedish Hospitality offers visitors a unique chance to discover the cozy, everyday but still exotic side of Sweden by having dinner with a local family. You can’t get much closer to us Swedes than that!

Lunch, a Swedish Fika, coffe break, or supper in a private home will give you a chance to sample some Swedish delicacies, depending on the season and your host’s own preferences in the kitchen, and have a chat about everyday life. You can ask about culture and traditions, find out about local stories and anecdotes or get insider tips on what to see or where to shop. Without question the most authentic way of experiencing the most southern part of Sweden called Skåne.


Maglehem is located on the eastcoast of the landscape Skåne in the southern part of Sweden. Approx. 200 people are living in this little village which has a lot of soul and heart and is wellknown for its beauty, lovely beaches and a lot of painters are living here. Close to a national parc and nature preservative areas i.e. ideal for those who would like to spend some days biking or walking.

Bodil Bergman is my name, just retired after having been working for many years in a big wellknown international company where I had the opportunity to work on an international basis also living abroad and meeting a lot of wonderful people from all over the world. I therefore also speak english, german, french and some italian and love to meet and talk to people from all over the world.

I used to live in the university city Lund during my working period of life and moved to Maglehem a few years ago.

I live by myself in a house with a garden and love to spend time outdoors with different activities. I have a daughter and she is living with her family further south in Falsterbo.

Cooking is of course a favourite and me and my friends often cook together and have wine tasting dinners. In the surroundings we have a lot of good possibilities to purchase local organic food.

Other interests are music and singing (I am singing gospel), reading and art. I am involved in an outdoor artproject nearby, which I would be happy to show you. As I am very familiar with the surroundings I would love to show you around depending of the time you have

I would love to meet you during your visit to Sweden and spend some time in my lovely village Maglehem.
