Interaction with guests
We'll not be present at the site during our guests' stay. A neighbour is our caretaker who receive guests, show them around the house upon arrival and inspect it upon departure, receive and return the security deposit, answer questions, fix any problems and change the gas bottle when empty.
We expect guests to be careful and consider that it is an old house. The house should be clean and left in the same condition as it was upon arrival.
Pets and indoor smoking not allowed due to allergies.
I'm from Sweden and I have lived in other countries for 16 years, working in international development. I like to be with my children and grandchildren, listen to classical music and some jazz and blues, read, see film and theatre, go for long walks in beautiful surroundings, play bridge and enjoy good food and wine.
