Welcome to Enköping, Stockholm and Sweden!

After several summer with home exchange, 2018 became a summer here at home. We bought two kayaks and had wonderful weather so it became a great summer. But now we are looking forward to 2019. We would like to discover new countries and cultures. Our daughters are reading French at school, we can think of France again. Our daughters love to swim, and the whole family loves seafood, so we like to live when the sea. But up to an hour of bee is quite ok. And in addition, we are always interested in Italy, Greece, Croatia or countries around. You are always welcome to hear from you, it is not certain that it will be YES, but we will always answer!

We live in a house of old Swedish style that we've built in 2003. It has two floors, kitchen, laundry, toilet and living room at ground floor and four rooms, hall and bathroom on the upper level. Our garden is approximately 1200m2 and is quiet without cars but with residential neighbors. Outside is a large patio, garage trampoline and a playhouse.

We have a guest room over the garage, it has a toilet, shower and a kitchenette. There are two real beds but it can accommodate 2-4 people up there. It is suitable to use if you travel with older children or if you are two couples.

The area has a public playground. Is surrounded by forest with walking trails, berries and mushrooms. Upland is also agricultural area so there are also large fields that provide a bright landscape.
Would you like to experience Sweden? Then the Enköping really good at. Live in a "rural" with just a few hundred meters to Bredsand and its beach in the lake, miniature golf, barbecue and more. We have approximately 4km to the Enköpings center and parallel to the car road, it is a cycle path (between the city and Bredsand). Enköping has about 22,000 inhabitants and has everything you need from shops. We also have good communications and proximity to Stockholm, Uppsala, Västerås and Örebro. You can reach them all within 30 minutes-1 hour by car. Would you'd rather go by train or bus, it's free to park your car at Enköpings travel center. If you want to see some more of Sweden, then a two day tour around Lake Siljan is recommended, it only takes about 1 hour to Dalarna and then there are lots of nice stops there. In our house you will have a base in the middle of nature and can do lots of long and short trips. If you want to be "home" as is nature around the corner and a large cozy garden.
We have changed residence nine summers before, Gothenburg (SE) 2009, Lund (SE) 2010, Nyborg (DK) 2011, Killarney (IE) 2012, Moustoir'ac (F) 2013, Ottawa (CA) 2014, Ermelo (NL) 2015, Tampa (Florida, US) 2016, Brugge (BE) 2017 and Peñiscola (ES) 2017.
