  • Description


    Hi workawayers! :)

    We are a happy, easy-going couple living in beautiful 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 prepare the house for the summer season. we need to furnish the house. minor repairs needed, wall painting, wallpapering, sewing, decorating. Also some winter gardening chores.

    As much as 80 % of the municipality consists of forests and lakes. So..It is a municipality "made for" nature experiences and there are many nature reserves to visit. You can fishing ride horse or bike.
    When you visit the Municipality of Uppvidinge, you will also be in the Kingdom of Crystal.
    There is now an interesting mix of big glassworks such as Kosta and many small glassworks studios that take inspiration from each other. You can find unique pieces in a nice setting.

    Hi :)
    We are looking for enthusiastic workawayer who can help us with the work in our house and our garden. This involves some painting, normal housework etc
    Now we will prepare the house for the summer season. We need to furnish the house (carry furnitures from the basement to the first floor), minor repairs needed, wall painting, wallpapering, sewing, decorating etc.
    In spring time we plan to dig and plant trees in the garden, which is a physical task suitable for a rather strong person.
    It’s really important to us that you are happy with your stay and that we are happy with you and your work, that’s why we value honesty and an open dialogue. We are hoping to make new friends, learn about a new culture and teach about our country and life in Sweden.
    We prefer a smiling, easygoing, self-motivated and reliable person.
    We are looking forward to hearing from you and hopefully also meeting you in Sweden.
