15 minutes from Stockholm city center close to metro, in a nice house in quiet area. 2018: looking for an exchange for 1 or 2 weeks 16th of July 16 - 5th of August.

Our house is situated in Stockholm, Enskede, "the garden city" which was founded in 1909, a peaceful part of the capital, 5 minutes from the metro station (Sandsborg) and 15 minutes from the city center by metro ("tunnelbana"). Within 20 minutes of walking (or 10 by bike) you will be in "Södermalm", the busy south quarter of Stockholm city with lots of cafés, bars and restaurants. Our house has a small garden, in a quarter with independent and 2-family-houses, nice for walks.
In our house there is 4-5 beds, even 6 if needed, spread over 4 floors and all comfort you need. We have 2 bathrooms, one upstairs with a shower, and one in the basement with shower, a bath tub and a sauna. The kitchen and the living room is on the ground floor, and then there is a bigger (parents) bedroom on the first floor, and also a junior bedroom. There is another junior bedroom in the attic (with Lego included: ) ). In the basement there is one more bedroom and a bathroom, WC and a sauna, aswell as a la undry space.
The neighbourhood is a residential area but with some establishements: a café/bakery, pizzerias, a sushishop and a nice restaurant with a terrace, where you can meet the neighbours. You might also find a supermarket, a municipal library, a pharmacy and a gym in a little square 5 minutes away.

To explore Stockholm you do not really need a car when living here as the tunnelbana is close.

Not far from our house there is newly renovated playground for children, and it is not far to a municipal swimming pool (indoor in winter, outdoor (but modest, free of charge) in summer). A recreation area with forest and walking paths is reachable within a 40-minutes walk or a few stops with the metro.

It is also possible to go swimming in some lakes not far from here (10 minutes by car, 20 minutes by bike). In Stockholm you can find beaches and swimming possibilities in the lake Mälar very close to the city center. Or you might take a boat from the city center and spend the day in the very spectacular archipel of Stockholm.

The Tele2 Arena is also close with events and concerts and the restuarant mall Tolv, as well as the Globen and the Sky View. Within a 30-minuteswalk you will reach Skogskyrkogården, the Unesco World Heritage, the Woodland Cemetery. The Old Town is reachable within 15 minutes by metro ( about 5 km from the house).

About Our Family

Kåre and Ulrika are both civil servants in state authorities, Kåre is a physicist and Ulrika works with higher education issues. Pontus and Tomas are in the same school close to home, and spends a lot of time playing and watching football. Scouting ant orienteering are other interests. As a family we like to spend time outdoor or with families and friends, and we go to the Swedish western coast every summer. We like to go traveling as well. We made our first exchange in 2015 with Normandy, and really found it a very good way to travel. In 2016 we had a nice stay in Catalonia, Spain and last year we went to Amsterdam.

Kåre et Ulrika sont cadres tous les deux, Kåre est physicien et Ulrika travaille avec questions touchant à l´enseignement supérieur. Pontus et Tomas vont à l´école tout près de la maison et passent beaucoup du temps en jouant et regardant du football. Nous aimons a voyager et partent aussi sur la côte d´ouest à côté de Göteborg chaque été. On aime à passer du temps avec des amis et la famille.

Nous avons fait un echange en 2015 en France, et nous avons vraiment apprécié! 2016 nous avons passé une semaine en Espagne et l´ année passée on est parti en Amsterdam.
