We are a family with 2 kids and 2 houses, starting from Dec 21, next to each other. Looking primarily for someone to live the other house, taking care of heating and maintenance of the house where you would live. We are used to having au pairs and enjoy learning to know new people, cultures and creating friendships. We hope you want to participate sometimes In house work, garden work and possibly forest work, family time, play time with the kids, now 8 and 11 years.
We live In the country side but have an apartment In Helsinki, you can join us for trips to Helsinki if you want. Life where we live is really slow, quiet and peaceful, right In the middle of nature. You need to be prepared for no restaurants, no shopping, no public transportation, bad internet connection. Instead you can have all great pleasures of pure forest, fresh air and relaxing time.
You need to engage with tasks max 25h per week (in wintertime it takes a couple of hours daily to heat the house) so you can study or work full time with your own stuff if you like. We welcome someone who is calm, reliable, friendly and focused. The most important thing is that we find a good connection between each other. There is room for several people so couples and families can be accepted too.

You will see and be part of a regular family living a simple life In countryside of Finland. You can learn some Finnish or Swedish and take time away from city life and stress. Hopefully you will get new life time friends.
I can teach you how to cook some Finnish dishes and tell you about our culture. I hope to learn the same from you :). You can also join in our activities, like making fire wood, going to sauna, talking walks in the forest, picking berries and mushroom, fishing, hunting, gardening, plowing the snow, skiing, skating, watching movies, going on errands, playing.
I can also teach how to relax, how to get to know yourself, how to find your own potential and enjoy life. This is a topic I love to discuss but also ok if you are not interested.

A big old furnished wooden 2 floor house with sauna, shower, toilet, kitchen, 4 bedrooms, living room. You will have a private bedroom or two. We will still use a part of the house as storage and maybe as guestrooms or playroom/yoga room or other extra space we might need. Mostly you will stay and live in this separate house, but we can join for meals e.g. once a day, or as agreed, all together. You will be provided with basic groceries for one person according to your wish.
You can enjoy walking, skiing, biking, photographing, swimming In the nature. Peaceful location for studying, reading, working, getting some time for yourself. No public transportation. Closest village with grocery store, pharmacy, school, library, pool and gym is 10km away. Closest city, Savonlinna, is 1 hour away. In the forest lives bears, boars, wolf, lynx, elk, fox and smaller animals but we rarely see the bigger ones. In summer we have also lots of insects outside.

Unfortunately at the moment we don't have a stable and good connection 24/7. Some working online is still possible, but heavy online working that requires constant fast connection is not possible.
We live in the country side and you can park your car by the house or put a mobile home by the lake. There are many options.
Since you live in a separate house, you are welcome to bring your pet. However you will be responsible for any possible damage caused by the pet. There is space outside for a dog to run around. Other animals must be kept inside.
