About our home

Our home is a 150 years old and charming house. 100 m2 in two floors situated in a tiny, quiet and cosy street. We have a small closed and very sunny garden - great for kids!
Despite it's modest size our home is spacious, light and airy - with a distinct Nordic feel. The ground floor consists of a spacious living / dining room with doors opening up to the garden, a fully equipped 'American kitchen' (we like to cook!) and a bathroom with tub. The sleeping areas / bedrooms are situated on the second floor.
Only 200 m to Taarbæk Harbour with swimming facilities (very clean water), restaurant etc., 350 m to nearest local beach (small but sandy), 750 m to the famous, sandy 'Bellevue Beach' and 'Bellevista' (Arne Jacobsen's famous 'White City').


More about us

  1. We are a family of five: Peter (lecturer/adjunct at Copenhagen Business School), Christel (freelance Graphic Designer) with three children currently aged: 5, 10 and 12 years. We also have an extremely friendly cat. We love our little, quiet village with lots of possibilities for great activities like running, roller-skating, swimming, sailing, tennis and picnics, biking (five bikes available) or golfing in Dyrehaven.
    We've done one home exchange in Summer '13 which was an excellent experience. We would like to arrange an exchange some way in advance in order to get to know our fellow exchangers via email first to see how best we can facilitate their stay in our home.

Where is it?


Our house is located app. 15 kilometers up the coast north of Copenhagen in an attractive country area. Taarbaek is an old fishing village placed between the forrest - 'Dyrehaven' ('Jaegersborg Deer Parc') and the ocean. A very calm and quiet place only 15 minutes by train to the centre of Copenhagen (every ten minutes). Close to several beaches for example the very nice sandy 'Bellevue Beach'. Dyrehaven is one of the most delightful stretches of woods in Denmark with its wonderful natural treasures. Dyrehaven is designated as a natural forest. This means that the protection of nature precedes the cultivation of timber. Apart from the three thousand of free-ranging red, fallow and Sika deer you will also find the oldest amusement park in the world 'Bakken' - with a tradition stretching back 425 years.
