House in Huskvarna, Sweden

We are a family of 6, who wants to exchange homes with another family somewhere in Europe for a couple of summer weeks. We would prefer south or middle Europe, but are open to all suggestions.Our house is big: 198 m2 and has 9 rooms, of which 5 are used as bedrooms.
In the basement you find the laundry room with wash mashine and dryer. Here we also have a hobby room, also known as the "playroom", where we can play computer games, table tennis or watch TV.In the ground floor you find a nice modern kitchen with everything you need. Here we spend a lot of time making food and talking. We also have a nice dining room where we sit and eat sometimes in the weekends. In our living room it is easy to relax, watch TV, and listen to music, play piano or read a nice book (if you understand Swedish). We also have a very nice terrace where we spend a lot of time during the summer and watch the beautiful sunsets over the lake. You can also find a verry nice newly renovated  bathroom with shower and underfloor heating here, and one bedroom. There is also a bed sofa with room for two.
In the second floor we have two nice bedrooms, one of them with a small balcony, and the other one with a great view over the great Vätter lake. We also have a second bathroom with floor heating anda a wirlpool bathtub. Also this one has newly been renovated.
At the top floor we have two nice bedrooms where the youngest kids in the family live. Here you can find a drum set if you like drumming and some other fun things to play with. In one of the rooms there is an extra bed sofa.
