About our home

Clean nature, forests, lakes in combination with cultural attractions, shopping and design (there is so much more than IKEA in Sweden) ! The largest indoor/outdoor waterpark of the Nordic countries is within a five minutes walk.

Last summer we were swapping for the first time and we had a great one with Lymington, Great Britain (through another exchange organization than love home swap). Now we are looking forward to new swapping experiences. So..

Welcome to our home!
The city of Örebro is very cyclefriendly with cyclelanes all over, and there are 5 bicycles for you to use. Within an half-hour-drive you can visit the wilderness of Kilsbergen and Tiveden for hiking in the hills, mountain biking, fishing and swimming.

This detached ECO-house offers a great location! Within a 5 min walk you find a supermarket, a 9 hole pay-and-play golf , a pitch-and-put, a tennis club with 10 indoor/outdoor tennis courts, a raquets club for squash and badminton, two gyms, a spa and a horseback riding stable. Along the house there is a large public park with playgrounds, a parcour ground and an outdoor gym.
In Örebro you also find Europes largest indoor playground "The Land of playing and fun" of 7000m2 (Lek och buslandet) for kids and families.

We live in a quiet residential area in the outskirts of Örebro (150.000 inhabitants), but in only 15 min by car/bus/ bike you are at the citycenter.
This eco house, architect-designed by Bengt Hedemark, has solutions which are energy-efficient and based on green technology. Naturals materials like wood and stone have been chosen. There are 4 bed-rooms and 2 bath-rooms and the house has wooden floors, except for the bathrooms. In the kitchen, there are a woodstove, an electric stove and a dishwasher. The laundryroom is equipped with a washing machine, dryer and a drying cabinet.
We have a cosy livingroom with a fire-place. (wood is provided) As we love watching movies we have a Home Cinema projector with a screen of 180cm x 180cm (about 6 feet x 6 feet) and Wifi. You can plug in your own lap-top to the system.

The livingroom opens on a nice garden surrounded by a hedge. Here you find a small pool and a high quality trampoline with safety net. There are a terrace, a BBQ and also a conservatory where you can enjoy the light nordic nights.

The infrastructure is good in Örebro with a Travel Centre for trains and buses as well as Örebro Airport.
Örebro is a natural logistical centre in the middle of Scandinavia with its closeness to other places like Stockholm (2 hours by train, 2,5 by car), Gothenburg(3 hours by train, 3,5 by car) and Oslo (3,5 hours by train, 4 by car).

People are friendly and many Swedes are good at English which gives an easy access to things!

If you'd like to we would be happy to help you with information about booking tickets and other arrangements !
