The house used as Villa Villekulla for the film and series, during filming in 1969

Villa Villekulla is a house that was first heard of in the books about Pippi Longstocking, which later plays a huge part in the filmatizations. In Villa Villekulla Pippi lives with her monkey Herr Nilsson and her horse Lilla gubben. Outside the house stands a tree that grows sockerdricka.

The house used during the filmatizations of Pippi with Inger Nilsson in the lead was located in the town of Vibble on Gotland, Sweden. Until the 1970s the house stood garden south of Visby, but it was re-located to Kneippbyn and Kneippbyns summerland about three kilometres away from where it stood during filming of Pippi Longstocking, where it remains standing to this day. The garden where the filming of Pippi was held and where Villa Villekulla stood can still be seen if you visit Toftavägen. Today there is a Scots Pine growing where Villa Villekulla once stood.
