  • Description

    Description

    This is a place for yoga- and nature lovers.

    Our place is close to great views and outdoor activities. You’ll love our place because of the outdoors space, the light, and the neighborhood. Our place is good for couples/friends and solo adventurers.

    Take a walk in the forest or along the Göta kanal. It is only 100 m to our own jetty by the canal so you can easily take a swim, or borrow our canoe or rowing boat. Follow the interesting work by the looks, only 10 min walk from us. Enjoy meeting our hens and chicken, find their eggs and experience the taste. We have one roaster, three hens and four just born chickens.

    This is a place where you can be all for your self, enjoy silence and just relax.
    You can also, if you are interested, participate in the yoga that we teach and lead. We are both yoga teachers. Summertime we do yoga outside with a wonderful view and in the winter inside in an old stable.

    We have lived here for more than 38 years, and we still look at the view and thank ourselves for the luck we have, living in this beautiful landscape. Born and grown up in Sweden but with foreign heritage - Jan from Norway and Kathleen from the US, both on our fathers side.

    Over the last 36 month we have had a large number of workawayers from almost 30 different countries, and it has been so interesting and uplifting to meet all these nice persons. We try to have 2-4 persons with us at all time. The duration of stay has varied from 1- 12 weeks.

    You will have your own space both indoors and outdoors. There is a place where you can make a fire outside and a grill. Also possible to be in absolute privacy outside (for sunbathing etc)

    This is a place where you can experience silence - no traffic, surrounded by forest, fields and water.

    Help

    We need help to take care of our private houses, painting and general maintenance. Also help in the garden, mainly keeping grass cut and weeding.
    In wintertime we need to keep the fire burning in our furnace in order to provide heat to our houses. So help with firewood is always needed.
    It is good if you have driving license since we live some kilometers from bus stop and shops.
    We have bicycles that you can use for excursions or shopping in the nearby city Söderköping.
