Area: Vasterbotten/Skelleftea/Umea*2014* We are looking for help with cooking and cleaning from May/June until the end of the summer *2014 - long stay only - no short term stays available* We have just bought a beautiful old farmhouse and farm in the Vastantrask conservation area in northern Sweden. The house overlooks the biggest lake in the Vasterbotten area and has a 100m lake frontage. In short, it is one of the most beautifully situated small farms in Sweden. The house has mostly been renovated but there are still some small jobs that need doing. We also have young children and help is also required with them. In exchange we will offer bed and board and a rich cultural and recreational environment. In the summer this is a sensational area - from hiking and berry-picking to fishing and swimming in the pure waters of the lake, the leisure opportunities are legion. In winter, there'll be plenty of winter sport activity nearby including nordic and alpine skiing and snowmobiling. Furthermore, we're both former national newspaper journalists from the UK so are lively and interesting company. Want to hear about when Paul sang Abba songs with Depeche Mode in a London pub or how he became embroiled in Noel Gallagher's divorce? Pour him a glass of cava and he may tell you... Also, as we'll be spending a lot of time together it's important that we get on. We enjoy popular culture, both highbrow and lowbrow, and we enjoy the occasional glass of wine. We'd be happy to head into Umea occasionally to see a film or a gig and for you to join us. Paul still writes and works for newspapers full-time from home so will not have much time to get involved in the renovation. Donna, a decorating enthusiast, will be your project manager. We might even consider two people who don't mind sharing a room. Indeed, we may even have two spare rooms by the time you arrive, We have fibre optic broadband internet and satellite TV, which you will obviously be able to enjoy when you're not hiking/snowmobiling - we don't expect our helpers to while away their free time indoors by whittling animals from wood or making their own clothes from sackcloth and string. Unless they want to, of course.
