East Grevie is the most handsome of villages throughout Southern Plains (Söderslätt), situated on road 101. Abbout 650 people live here, and the main town of Vellinge is 7 kilometers away and Malmö and Trelleborg is near.

A village with a long history from the Stone Age through Bronze Age , Iron Age to the Viking Age. As late as 2015, excavations were made with lots of archaeological finds. That same year, the train returned to the village and now you can easily reach the rest of the world. Straight through the village, an Old Country Road goes which is praised in old Swedish songs.

Today, the castle of Manstorp is a ruin but worth a visit. In the summer there are also concerts

First time East Grevie is mentioned in writing is in a deed from 1228 in which a donated estate lies in "the Graefhöhae Orientali" where "Orientali" stands for the east. The baptismal font of the 18th century is a wood sculpture representing John the Baptist.

A parish home, once a week, on Wednesdays, turns into a pub. To really emphasize that this house belongs to the church is the name "Pub Mose in the Reed". The “village board" meets here occasionally, sometimes there are also arranged art exhibitions.
