We would like to go someplace warmer for the kids’ fall school holiday (e.g. south Europe). We could do a non-simultaneous exchange if you would like to come to Stockholm summer of 2021 instead (our apartment will be available from 12 July to approx 5 August 2021 when we will be in our summerhouse).

Light and airy 4 bedroom flat in central Stockholm City, Sweden (Södermalm)

The apartment is 120 m2 and consists of a large combined kitchen and living room (approx. 45 m2 - the daybed sleeps one), fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, a family room with TV and DVD (this large comfortable sofa could sleep one), one large bedroom (with a king size bed) and three smaller bedrooms (one with a full size bunkbed and two with a single bed - crib can be arranged) and two small but full bathrooms (one with a bathtub and the other with a shower and washer and dryer). There's a large balcony with wonderful views (especially at sunset and at night). The whole apartment was totally refurbished in 2012 with wooden floors throughout.

The apartment is located in the center of Stockholm city, in the neighbourhood of Södermalm (more precisely Hornstull), recently voted one of the top travel destinations by Financial Times.

Despite being in the middle of the city, two small beaches are within walking distance and there are plenty of parks and playgrounds. We live on a hill called "Skinnarviksberget" which is the highest natural point in Stockholm - if you climb to the top you have the most amazing views of Stockholm city and there is also a lovely park with beautiful views.

Restaurants, bars and coffee shops are plentiful and just around the corner. You can get all your shopping done in the area. The area suits both families and people travling without children. We love our neighbourhood and would never move. We are certain that you would feel the same!

Stockholm has a plentiful of museums (some of which are free!), excellent public transportation (both metro and city busses), you can take daytrips by boat out in the beautiful archipelago, during the summer seasons there are outdoor events, concerts and street markets. We have a wonderful zoo (Skansen) and an amusement park (Gröna Lund) - both in the middle of the city on the island of Djurgården. If you are traveling with kids there are tons of free public playgrounds within walking distance from our apartment as well as skate board rinks.

We have a 7-seated car (a manual Peugeot 5008) that could be part of the exchange if a larger car (at least fitting us 5) is available at the destination as well. We have our own parking space next to the apartment.

As we are travelling with our children (twins born in July 2012 and their brother born in May 2014) we are interested in an exchanged where both the location and the home is suitable for a family of 5!
