House in Visby, Sweden

 
"... when driving through the vast openness of Gotland, the ribbon of road unfurls across a flat green landscape. There are no billboards, no guardrails, just country churches and grazing herds of indigenous gray, curly-haired sheep. Occasionally, a squat, decommissioned windmill appears in a meadow, or a sleek, modern wind turbine twirls slowly on the horizon.
(...) Everywhere Gotland’s haunting beauty follows. Inside the gate of the Narsholmen nature reserve on the island’s east coast, a dusty road plunges through a scene like a savannah to a red-and-white lighthouse on the edge of a rocky coast emblazoned by waves of indigo wildflowers, fittingly called blaeld, or blue fire."

We have a cosy house in the Wold Hertiage town of Visby, situated on the beautiful island of Gotland, the largest island in the Baltic. 
Gotland offers many opportunities for beach activities, hiking, sightseeing in the medieval part of Visby, cultural activities such as outdoor theater and music, and also great night life. Multiple golf courses, horse riding, biking, fishing, cave exploration, surfing and lots more. Gotland is a favorite vacation site for many Swedes.
There are plenty other sites all over the island to see. For example, Fårö (small island to the north) is just 45 minutes away. Fårö is the site of some beautiful nature and scenery and home of late Swedish legendary film director Ingmar Bergman. You can camp all over the island and we have camping gear you can use.
The ferry to Stockholm (port of Nynäshamn) takes only 3 hours, by air you reach the capitol of Sweden in 35 minutes. By air you can also reach many destinations on the Swedish mainland and, in the summer, some cities in Europe. In the summer of 2013 you can fly directly to Berlin, Oslo, the isand of Crete and Split, Croatia.

We are: Jonas, Ursula, Sonja and Billy. Jonas works as a journalist, Ursula as a psychologist. Sonja is five years old and Billy was born in October 2012. We have been living on this beautiful island since 2000. We have two dogs, but we will arrange with petcare during the exchange.  
Our house has a kitchen, livingroom, toilet and study/guest bedroom on the entrance floor and two bedrooms on the upper floor. The children´s room is equipped with books and toys and we have many DVD´s for kids. Outside there is a swing and kids bikes and a kickbike. Downstairs from the entrance level there are is bathroom with shower and bathtub and a washer and dryer. In the garden there is a barbeque and outdoor furniture, fruittrees (cherry, apple and pear), berries and a small herbgarden.
So far we´ve had three amazing exchanges with Paris (2010), USA/Virginia (2011) and Berlin (2012). We enjoy exciting nature, outdoor activities, good food and big cities!
We have many suggestions for things to do and see and will accomodate to your interests, making sure that you will enjoy your stay to the max!
