  • Description


    We are Edmundas and Rita, both Lithuanian by nationality, but we lived in Ireland for many years and now it has been 6 years since we have moved to the beautiful countryside of Sweden. We own a property consisting of several typical Swedish buildings and a big garden. We love living surrounded by the lush Swedish nature and spending our evenings having some simple, but good food in our gazebo. You are most welcome to share simple pleasures of life with us!
    If you're sauna lover - this is good news for you !
    6-7 km away from us is public sauna in the forest (everyone can use it !). There is nice lake and we going to that place 2-3 times per week..:) You can join us or you can use one of our bicycles.
    There is lots of lakes around and if you like fishing - this is also good news for you..!..:)

  • Help


    We would like to welcome volunteers who are not afraid of physical tasks (for example, simple building work, chopping wood, painting, gardening...) and who love enjoying and sharing simple things in life. There are many different tasks that can come up in our property and we will be happy to adapt the work according to your interests, talents, and preferences.It would be ideal if the volunteers could come in a couple as the entertainment in the village is limited.

    What else ...

    We live close to the beautiful Baltic beaches and Swedish lakes, where you can swim and fish. There is a public sauna on the lake that is easily accessible from the house. We live just a two hour train ride away from Copenhagen and its international airport. We are based close to the town of Svangsta and Karlshamn.
