  • Description



    We are a family of three, Navid, Runa and Midas (2 yo) with our two animals, Millie the dog and Lucy the cat. We live 35 minutes north of Uppsala and 1,5 hours north from Stockholm in a old house with some land. Navid is working as a meditation teacher and currently also as a UX designer. Runa is educated in yoga and Ayurveda and is working with our retreat center to be, but formost she's occupied being a mom.

    We bought this beautiful place around 3 years ago and we are slowly renovating the house and taking care of the land we have. This spring we will set up for gardening, renovate a barn, paint our house and more.
