  • Description


    We are a family living our life at an old farm house in Southern Sweden accompanied by a few hens, two horses a dog and a bunch of cats. The house needs restoration together with the barns and the big garden, we also need help in the household and occasionally with riding/ training our horses although they are usually away during the summer season. We're only two kilometer away from the closest beach, surrounded by beautiful farmland in a rural part of South East Skåne.

    Please note that we may be lousy in replying to messages :( but we try to compensate by being pretty descent hosts :). If you don't get a reply back from us its only that we don't have our Workaway-radar on at that time, keep sending us requests we love getting them and will try to write back as good as we can.

    You are especially welcome if you love and have some experience from wood work/ carpentry and a bit construction or if you love contemplating while thoroughly painting window frames.
