  • Description


    We are Morgane and John, an international couple of 25 and 30 years old, with a project of food forest and permaculture. Morgane is French and John is Swedish.

    We live in a traditional Swedish house with access to public transport (we are 20 minutes away by train from Gothenburg), with an old barn and a 2000 sq meters land. We have 3 hens that we like to consider more as our pets more than our livestock.

    Morgane is a scriptwriter and mostly works from our home office while John is a mathematician who works in town.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    During your time off, you can go visit Gothenburg which is the second largest city in Sweden. If you prefer nature you can hike from our place into forests towards lakes or pastures with horses. By car or public transport, you can also reach the archipelago (there are many islands worth seeing) and many nature reserves.

    We could say that our place is in the middle of the capitals of Scandinavia with 4 hours train rides to both Stockholm, Oslo and Copenhagen.
