House in Furulund, Sweden

We are a family of four people; Anders (42), Kerstin (39) and our two children Dante (8) and Ninja (6). We love to do both some shorter exchanges during the year and exchanges for about 2-3 weeks during the summer.

Our house, built 2005, is located in a peaceful suburban area with nice green suroundings and playground close by. The area is calm with very little traffic.

The house has four bedrooms with a total of 6 beds. There are two bathrooms, one on each floor. The total area of the house is 170 m2.

The village Furulund is situated in the province of Scania in south Sweden. Our closest town is Lund (100.000 inh) about 12 km from our house. Lund has a historical city center with a University, an 11th century cathedral, museums, shops and lots of restaurants. Other major cities in the area are Malmö (30 km) and Helsingborg (50 km).

The nearest beach is only 10 km from our house and there are also a lot of high standard Golf courses in the area.

The danish capital Copenhagen is only 45 minutes from our home. Copenhagen is a charming city with lots of people strolling up and down the pedestrian street "Ströget" in the summer. The city has many interesting museums that suits the whole family.

Scania is a typical farming area with open fields, but there is also wild nature with cliffs, lakes, beech-forests and big pine-forests. Hiking is possible on different levels on marked paths. The south and east coast of Scania are surrounded by wide sandy beaches with nice white sand and plenty of space for everyone!

It is easy to travel by car in Sweden since the roads are very good and the traffic is low. The closest train station is located in the neighbouring village, Kävlinge (2 km). With the local trains you can reach all cities in Scania and also Copenhagen within 1 hour.

If your are interrested in seeing other nordic countries you can go by an overnight-cruise from Copenhagen to Oslo, the captial of Norway.
The express train takes you to Stockholm in 4h 15min. Good hotel offers are easy to find during Summer.
