We are a Swedish couple of middle age (50-s), Olga and Leif, living in a village Svängsta (the south part of Sweden), 10-15 min to the Baltic Sea by car, 1 min to the forest and 5-10 min walk to the nearest lakes.
We have a Peruvian naked dog and have rather quiet life in a house with a small garden.
Leif has many different interests: painting, sculpturing, playing harmonica, building motorcycles etc.
I (My namne is Olga) like gardening, walking with the dog and working at my handmade projects.
Our biggest issue is the dog who can’t stay home alone. So we need help of a “dog-sitter” first of all. And it would be nice if you could help us with cooking and around the house and garden.
The nearest AirPort is in Copenhagen. There is a train from the airport to the nearest city Karlshamn.
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Our guests can try and learn painting, making jewelry, knitting, felting... You will see the beauty of Swedish nature, you can go fishing salmon to the nearest lake or sea. If you want you can learn Swedish language too.
We also have home gym where you can train and bicycle to cycle around and even to the nearest city.
We need a person who can take care of our dog, while I am away and my husband is working. it would be nice to get help around the house (cleaning, cooking) and garden (for ex. cutting bushes) too.
I think it is not necessary to mention that you should love dogs!
Separate room on the 2nd flor with window and separate bathroom with shower and toilet. There is a single bed and sofa in the room, table and chairs.
The village we live in is surrounded with forest, lakes and river. The nature is just “behind the door”.
