  • Description

    Description

    We are a family of 5 and are working on developing a place of peace, recreation and nature in the middle of Sweden. We live halfway to Östersund in the east and Scandinavians biggest ski resort Åre in the west. Nature is always close to us. Mountains, lakes and rivers invite all year round.
    Our big boy is 5 and our twins are 2 years old. We have loads to work on all year round. We live on our farm since 2014 and have a renovation going of a house from 1915 to host you and guests that travel our way as soon as possible. During the summer we grow vegetables, pick berries, herbs and mushrooms and process them. We harvest hay for our horses, work in the forest and paint buildings. In Wintertime we work on firewood, do indoor renovations and shuffle lots of snow :-) . Besides of that we enjoy fishing, riding, swimming, hiking, respectivly sledging, snowboarding and crosscountry skiing in winter. You eather get a room in the basement of our house with separate toilet and bathroom (free access to internet) or stay in our guesthouse. You are welcome to eat breakfast, lunch and dinner with us but you can also prepare your own food in our kitchen. More questions? Bet you do, we`re looking forward to get to know you.
    Christian and Sabine.
