    We live in an big old school in the countryside but the city is near. It is located 45min drive away from Stockholm, Uppsala and Västerås. Stockholm is the capital and some of the biggest cities in Sweden with a lot of old history. We are also close to Arlanda international airport. We have two cars so you can borrow one or we can drive you into Enköping where you can take the train to all the bigger citys around us. I love cooking so all the meals will be served in the kitchen and you are always welcome and take what ever you want to eat and drink.
    We have a big house of about 500kvm and the best place for you to sleep we can decide when you come but we have a lot of rooms to choose between with a door to close. We welcome familys with children.

    What else ...

    We have a lot of water around us so you can go swimming, hikes in the woods or go and see the big cities. Uppsala is a beautiful university town not far from us. If you like horse ridíng our neighbors has horses. We have two cats but they dont live inside the house. We are a very relaxed family a bit disorganised maybe but with a lot of laughter and a lot of love. We love to play bordgames in the evening but everything is optinal you do you. But a social person would fit right in.
