    As a family we love the outdoors, skiing, cycling and also cooking. There are many activites in the area depending on which season you come. In the summer there is mountainbiking, hiking, canoeing, fishing, swimming in the lake. In the autumn there is the berry- and mushroom picking, harvest markets. The winter offers skiing, crosscountry skiing straight out into the woods for miles from the house, or by car ca 30 minutes to one of Europes top skiresorts. Spring time offers a wide range of skitouring. The gastronomy here is world class and for someone who would like to experience the best of Swedish cuisine, there are many cafes and restaurants locally on offer.

    We are looking for a couple of workawayers who can help with everyday chores and jobs around the house and on the farm. This summer we are painting the barns and their are plenty of jobs in the garden. The help could also include general help in the house and perhaps at times looking after our youngest child who is 6 years old, he loves skiing, cycling and football.
