  • Description


    hej, we're a family with 2 kids, originally from switzerland, came to sweden for a sabbatical 8 years ago and got stuck, living on the countryside in our little paradise we created over the past years at the dead end of a gravel road, trying to keep live slow and simple, hosting many visitors to fulfill our social needs...

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    awesome wild forest just behind the house (with lots of blueberries and mushrooms), about 5km to the sea (we have bicycles), various lakes in the surrounding (we have a sup and a boat), table tennis, access to sauna and hot tub nearby. bad public transport, just about 2 busses in and out per day. 15km to the next trainstation, we can pick you up by car.

    in general we prefer rather short visits up to max 2 weeks, especially in winter when the outdoortime is limited, to get regular quiet periods.
