A warm, relaxing and friendly house, inhabited by my daughters Kerstin and Harriet, aged 11 and 10, and myself (Pelle) welcomes and invites you to take part in our daily life and help out with a wide range of chores, e.g. wood chopping/cutting, decluttering, painting, snow shovelling, sewing, some child-minding, cooking, tidying up, language tuition, occasional house sitting, tending to our 16 chickens and three cats.
We live on a farm on an island (perimeter: 13 kilometres, population about 150) in the wondrously beautiful countryside of the county of Jämtland, some 600 kilometres north of the Swedish capital Stockholm, the noise and stress of which we left behind about six years ago.
Our girls are relatively seasoned travellers and proficient speakers of English, and one of the main reasons I am listed here is that I want them to continue developing their understanding of the world far beyond the shores of our little island.
As regards other things to help with, I entertain some plans to convert one of the farm buildings into an airbnb cottage, but feel a tad hesitant about embarking on a project like that by myself, so perhaps someone here could help(?)
My job is based in Stockholm, which means that some house- and animal-sitting would also be included in a placement at ours, as I need to be off down there for work from time to time.
In our area, visitors have plenty of opportunity to pursue their outdoor interests (MTB, hill walking, vertical and horizontal skiing, etc) and it is entirely impossible to avoid nature and its wildlife round our home ;))
I am a teacher of Swedish as a second language and I'd be most happy to assist anyone keen to learn the language both conversationally and grammatically

Splendid opportunity for those interested to learn Swedish, through instruction if they wish, and practise conversational Swedish

Help with cooking, vacuuming and cleaning, esp. in winter, would also be greatly appreciated.
With us, such qualities as willingness to contribute to what needs to be done here and an interest in the things we have to offer carry more weight than, for example, your language background. Generelly speaking, however, native speakers of English (mainly for the benefit of Kerstin and Harriet) or of Italian are particularly welcome as Pelle would be delighted at an opportunity to brush up on his dormant knowledge of conversational uni Italian.

Our place also boasts a comfy sauna in which any weary workawayer is welcome to be revived after a day's work.
The farm is located within easy reach (about 15 kilometres) of the town of Östersund, once a year host to one of Sweden’s largest music festivals “Storsjöyran”.
We are certain that, through honest and clear communication, we can devise an arrangement together with you - perhaps during a premilinary webcam conversation - that will keep all of us happy as Larry.
