Lidö Säteri

The current manor-house building was erected in 1769 by Mattias Holmers, who was born at Simesgården on Arholma. He went to sea at a young age and gradually built up his wealth as captain of an East India ship. The manor house was built on the foundations of a stone building demolished by the Russians in 1719, whose previous owners included the well-travelled Bengt Oxenstierna and Otto Wilhelm Königsmark, general of the Venetian troops during the siege of Athens in 1687. The manor house is now a restaurant and guesthouse open to the public.
