I am Katarina and I live in Swedish Lapland together with my 2 children (age 8 and 11) and my partner. We live in an old manor from the 18th century. Our neighbour is the beautiful nature surrounding us.
We are looking for two enthusiastic volunteers to join us from May and over the summer. It would be suitable for a couple or close friends.
The manor, where we live, is an old works manor and is placed in a beautiful and undisturbed location. There are walking trails where you can see historical reminders of the Melderstein works era. In our surroundings we also have the forest, some small mountains, the river, lakes and the sea! The closest supermarket is 15 kilometres away. We have three cities about 50 kilometres from our home.
The manor is nowadays a small venue and hotel. I am the owner, and this is my full-time business as well as my home. We have 13 rooms and are open all year for groups and parties as well as private reservations. The restaurant is open in July.
We think that you are a person that are flexible, positive, and like to have things to do. You are eager to learn and love nature.
Get in touch, we'd love to hear from you!

This is a great opportunity for you that would like to explore Swedish Lapland during the summer. You will get to know our family and maybe other people in the surroundings. Our guests love to chat and if you let them, they will give you many stories about the area. We are a swedish/english speaking family (and the kids would love to learn french). Living in an old manor you will get to know quite alot of the history of the manor and the northern part of Sweden.

As you might understand taking care of family, business, guests, and a lot of houses requires quite a lot of time. So as a volunteer with us you will do a bit of everything that is required in the family household. Examples of things to do could be: cutting the lawn, gardening, easier maintenance as painting, do fun things with the kids, maybe cooking for the family sometimes, and house sitting once in a while.

My children would love to learn french. Their family on their fathers side are french speaking. However, we don't know any french.
You will have your own bedroom, living room, shower, and toilet. You will also be able to cook. Sometimes you might dine with the family or with the kids. When the restaurant is open you will get meals from there. It is very flexible and you will be able to chose when to be social :)
You will either stay in a cabin or in a flat inside the manor.
In your spare time you are more than welcome to use our car for excursions on your own. Maybe you would like to hike, go fishing, swimming, shopping, biking, paddling. There are a lot of outdoor activities.
