3rd floor: One bedroom. Air conditioning system.

The house may be set up to sleep 6-7 people or more. It has wooden floors and central underfloor heating. Especially the living room and dining area on the 2nd floor, as well as the bedrooms on 2nd and 3rd floors provide beautiful views of the typical Ostrobothnian landscape. 300 Mbit connection and WiFi. If needed, laptop free of charge. Outdoor furniture seats 8. Coal-heated barbecue available. Experience the bright nights of the Nordic summer!

More about us

  1. We are a Swedish-speaking Finnish married couple of age 44 and 42, working as chief of social services and demand planner within the food industry. Our children are two daughters age 14 and 10, and two sons, age 8 and 3.

  2. We have completed three successful home exchanges; UK 2012, France 2013 and Denmark 2015.
    2023 would be our fourth home exchange. We take good care of our home and would treat yours with the same respect.

  3. We are open to all offers for June 2023, although Belgium, Netherlands, Italy (Milano-surrounding area), Spain (Barcelona surrounding area), Germany (Berlin-surrounding area) and Ireland would be of special interest.

    We basically don’t have points, thus simultaneous swaps only.

    We are eager for car exchange as well, also for a 5-seater.
