We are a family living in the wonderful area south-west of the lake Storsjön in Jämtland, by the forest and with view over the mountains of Oviken. We would like very much to welcome a native english-speaking family to share mountain and generally outdoors activities with us, conversations, tasks in the garden and in the house (built in the 1830s). We have our fulltime jobs, but will also have a lot of time to share with you. If you want an introduction to the Swedish language, I (the woman in the house) am a graduated teacher in Swedish as a second language.
Zubereiten / Kochen von Mahlzeiten für die Familie
You will learn about Sweden and Jämtland, the nature here, about swedish lifestyle and how it can be to live in a sparsely populated area in the north. We are people with a lot of interests, so we can have interesting conversations about various subjects, and, we hope, to spend an enjoyable time together.
Dieses Projekt schließt möglicherweise den Umgang mit Kindern ein. Mehr Informationen findest du in unseren Verhaltensregeln und Tipps hier.
According to the weather the tasks can be lawn mowing, taking care of sheep fence, painting the house, remove old paint inside the house, general cleaning inside and outside, cooking meals or what else we agree on.

The city of Östersund, where we work, is about 45 kilometers away. The famous skiing town Åre is about 90 kilometers away, the mountains of Oviken about 40 kilometers away. The nearest forest (about 200 meters away) is very nice for walks. Public transports exist, but not many busses each day, on the other hand, you are welcome to ride with us to various places almost anytime we are going somewhere, or even borrow a car when it's available.
