We are a dutch family of 5 (born 67, 69, 02, 04, 07) living in the swedish countryside for over 10 years now. Our main focus during the year is finding and creating a satisfying and sustainable lifestyle. We are interested in permaculture, both in our garden and social permaculture. We have a vegetable garden with polytunnels, chickens and are establishing a small mandala forest garden.
We as a family can use help in the housekeeping and preparing of meals, garden and vegetable garden and like to meet new people with preferably similar interests. This year we even have some maintenance job, like painting to do and can use some help moving to our new house.
Our house is surrounded by forest, lakes and farmland and is situated somewhat secluded and quiet. The nearest supermarket/ public transport is 7 km away, the nearest small town (Vimmerby) is about 20 km from Lidhem.

Travellers may be inspired by our lifestyle and may like to learn about permaculture and (self sufficiency) gardening.
We offer the possibility to experience/ try a good, simple countryside living.
Småland is a perfekt place to visit when you are interested in the typical Swedish countryliving with the red wooden houses, lakes and Astrid Lindgren.
Do you want to help us to support our daily family living as we are busy in our job (we run a B&B) during the summer and are moving our family home to another village. Besides jobs in the garden and vegetable garden we are also looking for help preparing family meals, cleaning, general maintenance (as painting the garage doors). To be clear, there are no tasks in our B&B.
Do you have lots of positive energy and a positive work attitude regardless the weather? Please contact us!
You will stay in the mansion house in our former apartment (bedroom/ bathroom) and can use a communal kitchen/ living room. Alternatively you'll stay in a guest apartment in the B&B (bedroom, bathroom, kitchenette) when the B&B is closed. In both cases you have lots of outdoor space and garden furniture and an outdoor grill.
You are welcome to join the family with meals if you like. We are flexitarians, we share the tasks as cooking, dishes, setting the table etc. You take care of the cleaning yourself.
In the evenings, from 20.00, we like to spent the time with our kids.
In Lidhem you can relax in the garden, go for a walk or biking tour (you can borrow a bike) and there is a lake for swimming on walking distance. Vimmerby is the nearest town with shops, restaurants and a cinema. Vimmerby is well known for Astrid Lindgren. Here you'll find Astrid Lindgens theme park and Astrid Lindgens Näs. Västervik is a somewhat larger town, situated at the coast.
There is a busstation in Frödinge, 7 km from Lidhem. In Vimmerby there is a train station. At least once a week we travel to Vimmerby or Västervik to do some shoppings and we can give you a lift to the bus/ train.
If you travel by car it is possible to visit the moose park, nature reservs etc. in eastern Småland.
