  • Description


    We are Matilda and Rolf, a retired couple with a small hobby farm. We live far up north in Sweden but you can reach us easily with the night train from Stockholm or Gothenburg. Here you can enjoy the silence, so silent sometimes we cannot hardly grasp. 18 people live in this small village. From MAY we can take volunteers, now is snow and cold.
