My wife and I moved to Sweden from London almost 2 years ago, where we bought an old village shop (very big).
We came here to be in nature. We are a native English speaking family.
We have lots of plans for the house and garden. This year we want to build a greenhouse and chicken coop. We also grow and sell plants at markets.
We have 2 dogs (Poppy, and Daisy) Both are German Shepherds and very friendly. We also have 2 cats (Ronnie and Reggie)
We both have a great sense of humour, a passion for music and are very open minded. Not so open minded the wind whistles between our ears though. ;-)
We know there is much work to be done, but there is no rush. We want to emphasize that it is more about making friends, learning new things, trying and eating new foods, and getting some work done in the process.
Terrence McKenna once said “Nature is not our enemy, to be raped and conquered. Nature is ourselves, to be cherished and explored.”

Help in the house
Jämtland is a great place to visit. We are on the edge of Europe's largest wilderness. Our nearest town is 42km (Östersund). We are quite remote. We have almost 24hrs of daylight during May and June. It's a very quiet peaceful place to be. Maybe you will meet Moodini (the escaping cow) that wanders the village
We have lots of outdoor equipment that can be borrowed.
We are about an hour's drive from Åre (Sweden's top ski resort) we also have a local slope about 15 minutes drive away.
We can teach you how to...
Cooking (we like to eat well)
We want one person this summer for cutting up tress, and digging up tree stumps, as well as help around the house, and garden, helping to build a greenhouse (hopefully, if we get the trees down. We would prefer someone from South America. But we will consider everyone.
You will have to undergo a 14 period of isolation (quarantine) in the caravan in the garden, before moving in to the house Meals and drinks will be provided.

The village where we live is quite remote. There are a few buses a day in to town. We have two cars that would be available to use. The house we bought is an old shop. Upstairs is an apartment, and downstairs is the old shop which at the moment we are using as a workshop.
We have a spare room with a double bed.
access to a car.
If you love nature, and peace and quiet you will love it here. We are close to the mountains, with many lakes and rivers nearby it is also a great place if you like fishing. We also have a 18ft Canadian canoe, camping and outdoor equipment that can be borrowed.
