  • Description


    We are a couple living in a beautiful spot overlooking the mountains in the north west of Sweden. Helena is working part time in the library/tourist information of Åre. Erik is doing some woodworking in the neighborhood. We are situated between Östersund and Swedens most popular ski/mountainbike resort Åre (50 km to both) We are growing organic vegetables trying to become self sufficient. We live in e tiny village with only about 15 people, so it is best suitable for two friends or a couple.
