Cosy house in picturesque town of Sigtuna, close to Stockholm

We are now looking into exchanges for 2016. We are open to exchanges Christamas 2015/2016, Eastern 2016 and summer 2016.

Sigtuna, close to Stockholm, is Swedens first town dating back a thousand years, attracting visitors from around the world (http://destinationsigtuna.se/en/). Our house is centrally located yet very calm. Local bakery, main street and waterfront only steps away. Several restaurants, coffee shops and boutiques in the town. Lake Mälaren offers many opportunities for swimming in the summer and skating or skiing in the winter.

The house in around 150 m2 with one main bedroom (dubble bed) and two rooms for children with one and two beds respectively. There is also an extra room with a two bed sofa. In front of the house there is a nice garden (shared with neighbours). We have a kakelugn (open fire stove) and a sauna for chilly days.

Stockholm is 50 km away with everything it has to offer and the town of Uppsala is 35 km away. International airport of Arlanda is 15 km away. Many castles to visit within 30 minutes drive. Many golf courses nearby with the closest being 5 minutes away. Local transportation is 1 hour to Stockholm and we have a Ford focus which can be part of an exchange. Bikes are available as well

We are a family of 4 with two children 11 and 13. We have two cats that also live here which, depending on the time of year, could be part of an exchange.
