The house used as Villa Villekulla for the film and TV series Pippi Longstocking in 1969 and the early 1970s
|Created by||Astrid Lindgren|
Villa Villekulla is a fictional house that is the home of Pippi Longstocking, a character in a series of books. She lives there with her horse and monkey, Mr. Nilsson. Outside stands a tree that grows Sockerdricka, a soft drink sold in Sweden.
The house used during the TV series and some films with Inger Nilsson in the lead role was located in the locality of Vibble on the island of Gotland in Sweden. Until the 1970s, the house stood in a garden at the Gotland Regiment (P 18) south of Visby. It was then relocated to Kneippbyn and Kneippbyns Summerland about three kilometers away from where it stood during filming of Pippi Longstocking, where it remains standing to this day. The garden where the filming took place and where Villa Villekulla stood can still be seen. Today there is a Scots pine growing where it once stood.
