We, Sabrina and Jonas Rotzler, emigrated with our children from the Basel region in Switzerland to the beautiful Skålsjön in Hälsingland, Sweden, in June 2022. We love nature and enjoy living in harmony with it. Sustainability is very important to us, because only if we live sustainably will our descendants be able to live at all. For us, the rather simple and somewhat quieter country life in the Finnish forest between Bollnäs and Falun in central Sweden is the fulfilment of a dream. By taking over the Skålsjögården holiday resort, we have realised our dream of independence. We are happy to welcome guests and share our privilege of living in this beautiful place with them.

Emigration has many facets and backgrounds, some of which we would like to briefly discuss. Firstly, it is very important for us to emphasise that we still consider Switzerland to be one of the best places to live. The reason why we left Switzerland was more because we were not afraid to leave our comfort zone and hoped to find something in Sweden that no longer exists in Switzerland - real freedom! Our idea of real freedom is to do what you want (without disturbing others) without being disturbed or disturbing anyone else. Due to the very low population density in the Swedish hinterland, you can actually find the ultimate freedom here.
