House in Västerås/Sweden: Wonderful nature, such as lake Mälaren, and yet close to town. Just 1 h away from Stockholm

This year we won't be able to exchange our house! Hopefully we are back on exchange-track again next year!

Welcome to Västerås and Sweden! Home exchange is such a great way of travelling. We just love it!

We speak Swedish, German, French, English and Spanish and understand Italian, Portuguese, Danish and Norwegian. Feel free to write us in any of those languages. Don't hesitate to contact us, we are looking forward to your message and will answer to all of them!

Home exchange: We live in a very nice, family friendly and quiet neighborhood, with very nice neighbors. Our house is comfortable, clean and cozy. You will find everything you need to spend a relaxing holiday (coffee machine, dishwasher, washing machine, TV, computer, Internet, sauna, gym, pool, etc. ). Even your children will enjoy their stay, since they will find lots of indoor and outdoor toys to play with. During spring and summer we often sit in our patio or on our balcony. We often spend time playing in our garden or one of the nearby playgrounds. We have a small garden, where you may pick Swedish berries or fresh herbs for cooking.
About 1 km from our house you can access a public swimming place in the lake, for free. We often go there. The water gets quite warm, so even small children are able to take a bath. About 20 min by bike (Västeras is a very bike friendly city) from our house you get to the city center or to a cosy little island, where you find different beaches, grill areas, miniature golf, canoe hiring, restaurants, running tracks etc. During wintertime we often go cross-country skiing on this island. We have even a skiing slope here in Västerås. 
 
We own two cars, a Polo and a Golf VW, with two children’s seats each, 2 adult bikes; with child seats. Emelie and Ella own their own bikes. We have got another small bike.

The best way to travel to Västerås is by flying to Stockholm Arlanda, to Skavsta airport, Bromma airport, Örebro airport or if possible to Västeras airport. There are direct flights to Västerås from Malaga, Alicante, London Stansted (with Ryanair) and to Antalya (with Detur).  
We have great public transportation in Västerås and the rest of Sweden if you prefer to travel by train or bus. 

Our exchange wishes:
I would be nice to exchange house and car with a family with children in about the same age as ours. We are open to home- and car-exchanging offers from all countries - especially from Europe! 

Da wir Familie im Kanton Freiburg haben, verbringen wir jedes Jahr einen Teil unserer Ferien irgendwo in der Schweiz. Comme nous avons de la famille vivant dans le canton de Fribourg, nous passons chaque année au moins une semaine de nos vacances quelque part en Suisse. Spendiamo ogni anno qualche settimane da qualche parte in Svizzera, dove vive una parte della nostra famiglia.
