hej, we're a family with 2 kids, originally from switzerland, came to sweden for a sabbatical 10 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...
DIY and building projects
Help around the house
welcome to take a close look on our try to slow down life, escape from some of the compulsions of western living, and building the place of our dreams with our own hands. get an insight in swedish and swiss culture in just one place. enjoy the quiet and beautiful natural surrounding here. watch an autodidact build a house and a self-sustaining garden...
if you're in to music teach us some of your songs and learn some of ours!
we eat everything and like to invest time in proper and healthy food preparation but try hard to avoid dogmas. both vegetarians and karnivors very welcome. vegans just as welcome, but they might have to help with the cooking because our vegan recepy fundus is limited to a few days...
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.

one of the guesthouses or room in the house
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.
