Big flat in Uppsala.

Dear Intervac-friend!
We live in a quiet neighbourhood close to the city center Uppsala,.a vivid town during summer with restaurants, culture, outdooractivities and in a area of Sweden with alot of history. It only takes 10 minutes by bicycle,to reach downtown, there are excellent bicycleways to the center and we have bicycles to borrow, 10 minutes by bus and the same by car to reach downtown. Our neighbour is the wood where you can take walks and do running..
Our flat, built 2013 is comfortable and cosy, there´s everything you need, such as a big kitchen, two bathrooms, one with a big bath tub, shower, television,dvd , internet access to the computer, comfortable beds etc.

We offer you a Toyota Prius 2006 if we swap cars.

Our biggest airport Stockholm/Arlanda is just 30 minutes from home.
5 minutes from home we have a big aqua park, Fyrishov, with a big pool area and retreat area if you want to sunbath and swim.
Otherwise, lake Mälaren is only 20 minutes by car from home, where you can sunbath, swim, rent a canoe, barbeque etc. Apart from Mälaren, we have a lot of small lakes to sunbath, about 15-20 minutes from home!
It only takes 35 minutes by train to reach city center of Stockholm.
Take a look at www.uppsalatourism.se
Uppsala is university town  with about 180 000 inhabitants, the forth largest town in Sweden.  There´s a lot of historical buildings, for example a castle, a cathedral, university library Carolina Rediviva, the university, which was found 1477. We have a nice city center, museums, a lot of cafés and shopping. Summertime it is a lively city with a lot of things going on.
Our well known "king of flowers", the botanist Carl von Linné, lived in Uppsala, and there are alot of museums, his home and other related historical spots about Linné.
The archipelago of Stockholm is close, around 1 hour from home.
In the northern region of Uppsala you find pittoresque villages, perfect for 1 day  excursions.
The village Sigtuna, 35 minutes by car, is ranked as Unescos worldheritagevillage, 1000 years old and very pittoresque, it´s located by lake Mälaren so you can go for sun bathing the same day as you explore the village with it´s small cottonhouses.

Best regards,
Anna+ Pal
