  • Description


    We are a family of five, living our life at an old farm house in Southern Sweden accompanied by five hens, a horse 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 with riding/ training our horses. 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 beeing 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.
