“I had the privilege to spend 10 days in Marie-Louise's and Thomas' gorgeous home in Kongens Lyngby north of Copenhagen this July. True to the principles of Scandinavian design, the award-winning architecture of the house (built in the 1960s) is both simple and stunning, with focus on functionality. The house boasts a huge, yet secluded, garden, which gives one the feeling of staying in the countryside, even though the vibrant center of Copenhagen is only 20 minutes away. Connection by public transport to the city center and various sites in Greater Copenhagen could not be better (the 388 bus, for example, which stops virtually in front of the house, takes you directly to the amazing Louisiana Museum at Humlebaek or to "Hamlet's Castle" at Helsingor). Even the Swedish city of Malmoe can be reached easily in slightly over one hour. And if you are as lucky with the weather as I was, you can go swimming at the beautiful Bellevue Beach in nearby Klampenborg or go hiking in the lovely Dyrehave Park, which once served as the Danish Royals' hunting grounds. This huge park with wild roaming deer starts right behind the house. Communication with Marie-Louise was pleasant and easy, before, during, as well as after my stay. I also had the pleasure of meeting up, chatting with, and getting tips from her parents, who live just 100 meters away. I hope Marie-Louise's family will like Prague as much as I enjoyed Copenhagen and its environs. ”
Marie-Louise's reviewsAs a host (2)
“Echange très réussi sous les auspices réciproques du soleil, tant en Bretagne qu'au Danemark. La maison de Lyngby est idéalement située près d'un magnifique parc et il est trés facile de se rendre à Copenhague en vélo. Nous avons beaucoup aimé le pays, la gentillesse et le flegme de sa population. Merci encore à Marie-Louise et Thomas pour ces belles vacances.”
Where is it?
We feel that our house is next to perfectually situated - within 15 minutes by car you are at the center of Copenhagen and yet we overlook field and forest. From our garden you can access an extended area of natural reserves going all the way through Dyrehaven to the coast. It's a perfect area for walking and bycycling and of course being so close to Copenhagen it is very easy to enjoy all the cultural and historic pleasures of the old capital of Denmark. Sweden can be reached in 45 minutes over the bridge, a beach is within 10 minutes in car to 'Oresund' and some of Denmarks really great beaches are 40 minutes away following the north coast. There are many possibilities for activities: golf, canoing, walking, cyckling, tennis, all sorts of cultural events in the capital of Denmark, or the many castles or museums in the vicinity. And then of course the beaches are the favorit of the children. Our neighbour hood is quiet and friendly with nice people. Being that close to the capital we can, however, also sometimes (depending on the direction of the wind) hear the roads a bit.
