    Description

    Dear previous applicants! I deeply am sorry I didn't answer you all- my life situation has been very challenging in last few months and had no possibility to response all the applications. I promise to do this better ;)!!

    If you like peace and the tranquility of the countryside, you are able to experience it with me (middle-aged woman), and my youngest son 22 years old. My grandchildren will be seen here pretty often. They are very easy-going, happy boys and you should get well along with children.

    We have four dogs and three cats. Also an old horse. The animals are very important to us.

    If you are interested, please take contact so I will tell more by mail!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You can experience Finnish clean and pure nature...silence, fresh air. In spring time and summer, experience great Finnish light nights. Live at the place, where the lakes still are clean and birds still are singing :)!
    Our new home is in the countryside still, but in 5 minutes you are in the village by a car.

    -Searching two decent and diligent people to help with the exterior renovation of the house, specifically re-coat the exterior paneling again. Later will be painting it.

    -Clean and renovate the old barn. The previous resident kept sheep there.. didn't clean when left. So hopefully you don't afraid dirty job...

    -The route is pretty forested to the lakseside sauna, located from the house in a couple of hundred meters. The route would have to be made passable, like to remove branches and twigs away. The path is sufficient, we will need not any machines to use -just like a scythes etc.

    Difficult to say the exact time hours/day... more and less. Very flexible. Possible to have free days also at week if you want so, and help at the weekend.
