Cozy family home in Eskilstuna, Sweden avaliable for exchange summer 2020 (or another time - try us!)

Hi!
We are a family of four living in Eskilstuna, one hour from our beautiful capital city Stockholm. Madelene is an art director, working with magazines. John works for the city Eskilstuna, developing ways for teenagers to have influence in society. Our boys Henry and Louie will turn 7 and 4 in the summer of 2019.

We live in a two story house with basement built in 1932. The house has two bedrooms (+ office/guest room with sofa bed) and two bathrooms with shower/bathtub + 1/2 bath. Living room, kitchen, craft/Lego room. The garden has plenty of room to play and a ton of toys, a trampoline, swingset, slides etc.

Our area feels rural and close to nature. We live by the woods and there are fields with grazing cows right nearby. But! A ten minute walk away is a great shopping centre with two BIG grocery stores and lots of other shops. The train station and the absolute centre of Eskilstuna is a 10 minute bike ride away.

There are plenty of opportunities for outdoor activities in the area. In the summertime you can explore by bike, go swimming or maybe hike in the forest. In the winter try skiing, ice-skating or hiking.

We have a car for you to use during your stay. Take a trip to see the beautiful scenery, castles and picturesque towns outside of Eskilstuna (Sundbyholm, Gripsholm slott, Taxinge slott)!

There are also several bikes at your disposal, as well as two seats for children.

Contact us if you have any questions, we're looking forward to hearing from you!

Eskilstuna is a city with a long history. The area around Eskilstuna was well known in the time of the Vikings. One famous landmark is "Sigurdsristningen", a stone carving dating from year 1040. Another is the Rademacher forges built in the 1650s. It is the oldest industrial area in Sweden where craftsmen still are at work.

Eskilstuna is home to the famous Parken Zoo, one of Swedens most popular attractions. In the zoo you can see a wide variety of exotic and unique animals, like Asian lions, leopards and the renowned “Komodo dragon”, the world's largest reptile. Great for families!
