Find a private landlord

If you want to find a private landlord, we recommend you to join the Facebook group Bostäder in Åland (in Swedish). There are many posts from individual landlords offering housing. You can also make your own calls in the group.

Otherwise, use the local newspapers to search for accommodation. It is free to advertise under Desired rent in the private ads of local newspapers, which you can find on www.marknaden.ax and www.torget.ax
