Flat in Helsinki, Finland

WE ARE NOT CURRENTLY LOOKING FOR AN EXCHANGE BUT ARE OPEN FOR OFFERS.

 We are a Finnish-Nigerian family with two children: a toddler and a five-year old. Our home is a spacious (80m²) two-bedroom apartment 10-15 minutes by bus/car from the centre of Helsinki. In other words, you can easily explore the city using public transport. (If you have a pram, it's free for one adult.) The nearest mini supermarket and bus stop are within a one-minute walk. 
Despite the proximity to city center, this is a peacefull district and among the most popular places to live in Helsinki. Nature is close: from here you can take a walk by the sea or even make a trip to the nature preservation area Vanhankaupunginlahti nearby, where bird enthusiasts go for bird watching, and other people just to enjoy outdoors and beautifull scenery. On the other hand, this is still an urban area, university of arts and pop and jazz school are just in the neighbourhood. Also, the architecture of the newly built houses is interesting.  If interested in Scandinavian design, the old (but still working) factory of Arabia is situated very near, and it has an extensive factory outlet store.
