  • Description


    Our house is i south of Sweden, 3 kilometers from the nice beach Mossbystrand. Its very calm and beautiful small village close to the nature. 8 kilometers to Ystad. We are a family with two kids, 9 and 10 years old, 2 rabbits and one cat. We have tree houses, all togheter 460 squeermeters and a big garden. We want to build and start a retreat and gathering place with yoga and meditation. But first we want to make the garden nice, grow a lot of food (permakulture) and we also need to reconstruct one of the buildnings and repaint the mailnhouse. After that, maybe in the beginning of 2023, we are ready to start the health and yoga business.
