Originally known as Vitvär Semesterby, the new holiday village was renamed Ljugarns Semesterby in 2004. With the beach so close at hand, and a post office, mini-market, bakery and many restaurants just a short walk away, the holiday village is as perfectly located as anyone could wish for.
A path running parallel to the road was built through the site, followed by 22 cabins on either side: 12 at 32 m2 and ten at 24 m2. All shared the same design: a living room with an open fireplace, two sleeping alcoves with bunk beds, a small kitchenette and a small hallway. Designed by Henning Bergström, the smaller cabins were erected on-site by Josef Björkman while the larger ones were built by Knut Sedersten and then transported to Ljugarn.
Once all of the cabins were on-site they were given their numbers which, for some unknown reason, started at 600! The colour scheme of yellow or red for the cabins’ exterior walls was chosen by well-known Gotland artist David Ahlqvist, and remains to this very day.
