our story

We are Mette Helbæk and Flemming Hansen. We met through a shared passion for the good things in life back in 2001. We have been running restaurants and other food outlets together for 15 years and counting, and we hope that Stedsans in the Woods is our final destination.

During the years we learned many things, but the most important is the one we live by and run our business according to: All is one. You cannot treat yourself like shit and truly make other people happy (in our case: the guests at our restaurants). You cannot treat Mother Earth like shit and think she will give her best back to you.

Sustainability - on all levels - go hand in hand with quality. And quality goes hand in hand with happiness.

Quality, happiness and sustainability are all equal parts of the puzzle of how to make people - truly - happy, including ourselves.

We have been looking for a piece of forest for a long time. The last couple of years we have been running a restaurant on top of a roof in Copenhagen - Stedsans ØsterGRO. The place was amazing but we needed our own space in real nature, far away from the city. We found our little dreamy patch of forest by the shore of lake Halla in Southern Sweden and moved here in fall 2016.
