Hi! We are Lisa, Pierre, Olivia (12 y.o), Loui (8 y.o.), Liv (2 y.o.) and our cat Bisou, a mixed french/swedish family leaving in the province Dalsland, in the swedish coutryside. We live in a charming little village surrounded by beautiful nature with a lot of lakes and forests, hiking paths and nature reserves.
We are both working in small cities nearby and the children are going to school and nursery in the village.
On our spare time, we like outside activities and try to spend time with the children. We are also active in several local associations.
We also have an extra house in the same village that we sometimes rent out or use ouselves for friends and family visiting us.

Possibility to practice activities such as hiking, fishing, canoeing, mountainbike (that you can borrow from us) as well as cross-country and downhill skiing in winter. As we are active in several local associations, You wil also have the possibility to participate in associational activities such as scouting, weaving, preparing and participating in festivities (school disco, midsommer, easter, etc).

Everything that is part of a family's everyday life. Mainly help and activities with children such as picking up at school, playing with them, cykling and swimming, practising language (french, english, spanish), help with homeworks, etc. Depending on skills and interest, also help with gardening and moaning lawn, cooking and baking, shopping, taking care of the houses.
You will have a own cottage for yourself just some hundred meters from our house. You will spend a lot of time with us in our house, often eating with us and helping with the children or the house; It will then certainly be nice for you to have your own place to relax and sleep undisturbed.
It is a middle size cottage with bedroom, living room, bathroom and fully equipped kitchen.
If the cottage is rented out a couple of nights during your stay, you will then be staying and sleeping in a guest room in our house, but you will hopefully sleep in the cottage most of your stay.
During your spare time, you can of course visit the surroundings, Dalsland is a rather touristic area with a lot of places to visit. You can also travel further away in Sweden with bus and trains, especially Göteborg and the west coast as it is only two hours away but also Stockholm or why not continuing north after your time at our place?
