    In the middle of the island Gotland in the middle of Baltic is our home. Up until the 60’s it was run as a small farm, we would love for it to return to just that. However, at the moment we are just trying to restore the main house and the farm buildings with respect for the traditional methods, materials and of course the environment.

    Fole, our parish, is an active part of Gotland were people live all year round. It is 16 km from the medieval town of Visby, part of the world heritage. And the sea is never far away, you can go for a swim, either on white beaches or from cliffs diving directly into the sea. Gotland is the perfect island for tourism. You are never far from the sea, an old monument or beautiful nature. In the summer there are plenty of pitoresque cafés where you can enjoy a typical Swedish fika. (google it!)

    We are a husband and wife with two kids (6 and 8 years old), one dog, one cat, 10 hens and 1 cock. We like outings, good food, a glass of wine (not the kids 😊) and we love our friends and family. We thrive when the house is full and firmly believe “the more the merrier”. Eventhough in times of Corona we respect the recommendations and the great gatherings will be for after the pandemic.

    Kjell – pappa in the house – is an engineer. Fanny – mamma – works with education and sustainable development.

    When hanging out with us you will learn about the realities of a family in Sweden with school children. Maybe you will want to help us make cinnamon buns, go for a long walk in the close surroundings or tag along for mountainbike training? We try to find the extraordinary in everyday life, enjoying the tulips in spring and the fiery colours of fall, please join us!

    We will of course make you taste Swedish versions of all kinds of foods, the best might be our daughter’s version of sushi, which is completely made out of candy. 😊

    Arbeit

    We need help with our old farm buildings, which includes things like cast in concrete, restoring windows and alot of painting, You do not have to have any long experience. But you need to be a bit handy and able to work without supervision.

    We would also love help with the garden and every year we need to fill our wood storage.

    You will probaly be asked to work with things that will make you break a sweat from time to time.

    We can provide you with appropriate clothes in the sizes S-L if necessary.

    Most of the time you will be able to decide on your own when you put in your hours. But if larger things are taking place we might need help for a full couple of days. Normally we would expect you to work 5 hours 5 days a week.

    Unterkunft

    Staying with us you will have a room in the same house that we live in. We all share the same bathroom and kitchen. Your room is furnished with a bed that could fit two persons if you really like each other. Otherwise an extra guest bed could fit in the room too. You can close the doors to the room, but not lock them.

    During your stay we consider you a part of our family with the pros and cons! We will expect that you help out with the normal stuff that has to be done in a household. Such as, cooking from time to time, the dishes, cleaning the table and things like that. To be clear, we do not run a bed and breakfast where – we are just a family.

    We are not vegetarians, but we do not mind if you are. If you are a vegetarian you would have to be a bit more engaged in planning and cooking dinners. We enjoy veggeis and do not mind having them every day - but we need help with inspiration and ideas.

    From our house it is 3 km to the closest bus stop. We will lend you a bicycle so you can move around a bit more freely. If you feel for it it is absolutely possible to go by bike to the sea or to Visby, maybe just not twice in a day.

    Close to home there are several ancient remains, at least three medieval churches and nice walks through forests and cultivated land. There is also, in the parish next to ours, an abandoned limestone quarry that now provide for a giant pool with turquoise water. If you like fishing we will lend you our rods.
