  • Description


    Come and live and create with us in our beautiful house on the countryside, on Färingsö, 30 min outside of Stockholm. Me Linnéa, my partner Gustav and our son Mose (2 years old) recently moved to a beutiful old, big villa from 1910, well maintenant with a huge garden where we want to grow alot of veggies and create a magical garden. The house is really big with two floors, that are planned like two different apartments. So if you come and stay there are plenty of space. Our house is situated just next to a beautiful castle so when you walk out from the house you come straight into the park of the castle. Near by you also find cute bathing places, commune sauna and at the castle there is a cafe and they have yoga there. On Färingsö, you also find several garden centers and cosy cafes.

    We are a family that loves to invite people over and fill the house with aliveness and love. Our longing to live next to the nature, grow things and to be able to have people over is what brought us here. We are open people that likes to create things together. We would like help to create a beautiful garden, to spend time with our 2-year old son, take care of the house. Gustav works in the building industry so some building projects will probably come along the way. My profession is family therapist, and at the moment i work from home so I can spend much time at home. My interest is to gardening, yoga (i´m a yoga-teacher), dancing, cooking and much more.

    Hope that you will find interest in coming to us!

    We would like help with planning, creating, growing and taking care of the garden. We like the idea of permaculture and would like it as a guide in our planning. We also want help with decorating inside of the house, maybe some painting and decorate with wall paper. We also need help with babysitting, picking up from pre-school now and then.

    What else ...

    During time-off you can easily go into town, ther´s a direct bus that stops outside our garden, go for yoga at the castle or try their cake buffet, borrow our sauna, or go to the island next to ours where they have some nice restaurants, hang out places with live-music during summer time. We have two cars so sometimes you can probably borrow that too.
