  • Description


    Hi workawayers! 🙂
    we need some help here with house and garden.
    We are a happy, easy-going couple living in beautiful small village Sävsjöström in Småland - 45 km from Växjö. Come stay with us to experience a lovely Swedish nature. You can enjoy our beautiful bike trails (we have some old bicycles) take a walk in the beautiful forests surrounding us and pick wild blueberries, or appreciate some quiet time to yourself meditating and admiring the nature. If you’re lucky, you might see wild animals (maybe even a moose or two). You can also go swimming in the lake. If you are here in mid-June, you will experience a true Swedish midsummer. This is an ideal opportunity for a person who is looking for a peaceful and quiet stay.
    Our village is located far away from large cities, among forests. Connection and road is good. The nearest grocery store is in Lenhovda - 8 km.
    Now we are looking for someone who can help us with minor repairs wall painting and some gardening chores.
    We take turns with the cooking and the kitchen work. I expect you to keep the kitchen and the bathroom clean and tidy.
    Usually ours workawayers working 5 hours
    We appreciate if you start your job after breakfast 8-9 AM, after 2,5 hours you will have break and eat some FIKA (snack) with us and than you will continue your tasks.
    Usually we eat the bigger meal together and we can ask you to help with preparation this.
    We are meat lovers:) Our diet includes dairy products, meat, gluten and sugar.
    Once in week we will do some picking and something more:)
