Description

Pio Country Club is a stunning 14 bedroom boutique hotel situated in the countryside just 1 hour and 15 minutes from Gothenburg. It is the perfect place to relax and indulge in sheer luxury.

The bedrooms are individually decorated with designs inspired by different countries and cultures from around the world. Each room boasts a fabulous art collection and a unique artifact that has been found and personally chosen by Pio's owner Niclas during his worldwide travels.

The beds are enormous and the rooms spacious; decked out with Apple computers which double up as televisions, iPod docking stations and air conditioning. Rooms in the main building come with a shared veranda dotted with tables and chairs - perfect for an evening glass of wine.

The lounge areas of Pio Country Club are somewhat similar to what you would expect of a hunting lodge, with dark wooden floors, deep sofas and armchairs draped with fur rugs and elaborate golden lights hanging from the ceiling.

At the Pio Country Club restaurant, South America meets local produce, with most of the vegetables grown in their own garden. The food is second to none and their signature dish of Argentine steak and chimichurri is not to be missed. Breakfast is an incredible spread of typical Swedish fare with delicious homemade breads and pastries, blueberry and lingonberry jams and there is a charming chef who will be delighted to whip up a cooked breakfast for you.
