“In the summer of 2015 we enjoyed two weeks in Vaxjo. The house is very nice, modern and practical and a kids heaven with a lot of toys and garden items (swing, trampoline, play house). The location is very good next to a lake and near town. A great starting point for various Swedish trips (we visited Pippi Langstrump, Kosta Boda glass factory, kayaking on a lake and so on). The family is very open and friendly. They arranged breakfast and a lot of information to go around. We loved our exchange!”

Where is it?
Our home is located in the southern part of Sweden, in Växjö. As you can see on the map it’s situated between three coasts and there are a lot of lakes in and around the city.
The house is located in a quiet part of Växjö, nearby one of the many lakes. It’s a 15 minute walk to the city center/train station in one direction and 10 minutes to forest walks in the other direction. The town of Växjö has got a variety of things to offer. You can take a walk or ride around one of the many lakes. On the way you can see our old and beautiful cathedral and also an old fashion castle. If you like fishing you can try that too. You can also enjoy our many restaurants, one with the awards “Wine experience of the year” and “#9 restaurant in Sweden” from the White Guide 2014. Växjö is promoted as the “Greenest city in Europe” and part of that is our many green areas, some of them with really nice playgrounds.
Växjö is a university city with approximately 87 000 inhabitants. It is located in the heart of Småland, with its deep forests and typical red wooden houses. The area is known as the “Kingdom of Crystal” with glass factories and exhibitions. You can reach them in 40 minutes by car, and close by you can also visit a moose park and come close to the “King of the Forest”. Småland is also famous for the author Astrid Lindgren, who wrote Pippi Longstocking and many other children’s books. The theme park “Astrid Lindgren’s world” is less than two hours from Växjö and you can also reach three different coasts in the same amount of time. If you want to visit Copenhagen for the day you can catch the train.
