Traditonal Swedish wooden house from 1881, with private beach on the Baltic Sea only 20 minutes from STOCKHOLM. Want to exchange with house near the sea or lake in Italy or France, 7-10 days, July 6 - August 5th 2019
Located on a forested pensinsula right on the Baltic Sea, with a private beach. 20 minutes by car from central Stockholm. See an aerial photo of our peninsula:
Built in 1881 in traditional Swedish style, 200 m2 on two floors, this wooden house has 3 bedrooms, computer with free internet, and two cozy fireplaces. There are two large living rooms, one a TV room with a 52 inchTV with 50 channels and the other a sitting room for socializing. Next to the main house is a guest house which is 35m2, accomodates two people, with shower and toilet. There is a third tiny house of 10m2 with a double bed.
In a separate house there is a sauna, shower and fireplace. There is a large trampolin, a field for playing "boules", and a playing field for soccer. There is a 30 m2 stone-laid patio overlooking the sea, with a BBQ.
Four bikes are available. We would like to exchange cars, but this is not a condition, but an advantage. We can provide a Chrysler sedan or a Subaru station wagon for travel around the Stockholm area. A five minute bike ride from our house is a charming lake with a small sandy beach and good bathing for kids. There is a second lake 10 minutes by bike with high rocky cliffs and spectacularly clean water.
There is an 18 hole golf course 10 minutes away by car. You can play for a green fee.
When we have exchanged homes many times, and have always agreed upon mutual housekeeping: each family cleans their own home after the exchange.
We think that our house offers a perfect combination of country living just a short distance from the center of Stockholm.

About Our Family
My wife is a municipal Edducational strategist, I am a photographer working for both the corporate world and within international aid and developement. We have three sons, 19, 25 and 35, the youngest still living at home.
We have travelled very extensively around the world, and travel is our passion. We are curious about new cultures and foods, and see Intervac as a way to deepen our knowledge and understanding of local communities. All our exchanges have been great.
We are open to either long weekend (4-5 days), or one or two week summer exchanges in Italy, Spain, or France. We are looking for a house with 8-10 beds, either by the sea or with a swimming pool.
We are also open to exchanges with North America. Of particular interest are Manhattan in New York and Newport Beach in California. Additional places of interest are the coastal New England States, perhaps Montana or Wyoming.
An exchange with Africa, Asia could also be possible.
Our traditional Swedish home, built in 1881 is totally modernized, is located on a charming peninsula with beachfront on the Baltic Sea. Relaxing, yet only 20 minutes to central Stockholm by car (which we could exchange with yours.)
