  • Beschreibung


    We are a family of five (my wife, three daughters and myself) who just moved from Belgium to Sweden. We were lucky to be able to buy a large gård, with a large house and several stables and stugor. A lot of things are already fixed, but there is still a lot of projects to be done.
    We would like to build up a little farm with small animals (we already have cats, rabbits, chickens, ducks and quails - hopefully a lot more to come!)
    We live in Dalarna, which is the most Swedish province of whole of Sweden. There is a lot of beautiful nature in the immediate surroundings of our living place: forests, a vale with a river and waterfall, swamps with particular berries or mushrooms, ... We appreciate a minor level of luxury but try to live conscious of nature and the planet. We try to grow our own vegetables, fruits and meat, but we are sometimes glad there's a supermarket on a 15 min drive and the hot water is provided by an ecological and electrical heat pump.
    We like to cook and bake pastry aswell, so a well loaded table is guaranteed!

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    The whole of our family plays music and it used to take a large part of our lives. We have journeyed a big adventure last year, moving from Belgium to Sweden. Karen has a small background as being a nurse in Haïti, so we have a lot to talk and exchange about!

  • Arbeit


    At the moment, we need some helping hands on painting the walls (indoor and outdoor) of some stables and barns. We're also taking care of the garden and building up a new glasshouse to grow vegetables and making summer-stays for the rabbits, chickens and quails.

    On a later timing (2025 - ....) we'll be coming up to some tasks in the livinghouse itself again:
    There is also a lot of tasks to get the stables up-and-running for larger animals and to organise them in a more logical way.
    We would like to insulate the attic of our large house and create extra rooms in there, so we have more space for our hobbies (music playing, flower arrangement, ...).
    We would like to start a website about our adventures in Sweden and give people the opportunity to use our guestrooms and live the Sweden-dream.
    Every room in the house has a particular purpose, and we would like it to be in an esthaetical color that fits to the meaning. So there is some wall- and ceiling-painting to be done, aswell as some minor joinery.
    We use licensed contractors for the larger works in the house. We ourselves also provide the necessary working hands for the tasks to be carried out.

  • Unterkunft


    We have two guestrooms, who share a seperate bathroom and seperate toilet, so privacy is guaranteed. We share the meals together and talk about who you are, what your intrests are and what brought Sweden upon your lifepath.
    The large house provides a common diningroom with a magnificant view, next to the kitchen. We like cooking and preparing food, so you won't have an empty stomach. You don't have to cook yourself, nor do you have to help with the dishes.
    The beds are new and comfortable, and you live in your own room for the duration of the stay.
    We gladly explain the adventures we lived through, but respect also your time if you prefer reading a good book in the seat next to our large window with a fantastic view to the vale.
