  • Description

    Description

    In the family we have at the moment 3 dogs, 2 cats, 2 rabbits, and 2 horses. Husband is working in the nearest town at days, and wife is working with the own company.
    Life here is busy but calm in the same time. There is a lot of things to do all the time, but the timescedule is usually flexible, and we try to have fun in the same time that we are working. Life here is most about animals, nature/garden, antiques, a lot of pop-up projects, eating and having interesting discussions about life. And of course a lot of hard physical work!
    Our company offers antiques, second-hand, café, gardenplanning and horsebackriding for beginners.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    If you are interested we can teach you some basics in swedish and finnish. You will be able to travel around in the nearest region. The finnish archipelago is something really extra to experience. We practically live in the nature, so you only have to take a few steps from the door, and the Lovely forest next by can entertain you for several hours. If you like animals (and that you have to do if you come to our place ;) ) you can spend a lot of your free time with them, and we can learn you some basic horsemanship skills. You can also learn a lot of general animal caretaking skills, gardening, renovation and also cooking. Note that if you want to experience a lot, you also need some own money!

  • Help

    Help

    Help is needed with all kinds of works, for example: Cleaning the stable and the paddocks, gardening, renovation of buildings, cleaning of the house. No special experience is needed, but you need to be positiv and emphatic, effectiv and handy, and your physical condition has to be good or exellent, since most of the jobs are considered quite heavy by many. You also need to be able to take responibility and you have to be able to work on some projects effectivily by your own without guidance. Note that you have to be used to do normal household things like cleaning and cooking, because we expect that you participate in the normal everyday household dutys out over the other WA-hours.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    You will be living in a own room ( the room is also used for storage and sewing) with shared toilet and shower. If we have several volontairs at the same time (mostly in the summer), you will share this room. Sometimes we can also stay at the cottage (not in the middle of the Winter), with only a dry closet and sauna.

    We take only single travellers.

    No thank you to smokers or other addicts!

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Finland is a peaceful country with a very clean and beautiful nature. Our place is situated on Kimitoislands and in your freetime you can for example go camping in the beautiful archipelago or why not do a cruise from Åbo to Stockholm in Sweden with a ferry and see the archipelago under the trip. Look for some videos at "visitkimitoon". It can also be possible to do a trip from here to Lapland.
