About our home

Our home is a 115 year old house in the centre of Reykjavík. With a large private garden, it´s quiet yet perfectly placed in downtown Reykjavik, amidst the plethora of cafés and restaurants. At a stones throw from the main tourist attractions, close to the harbour and the main bus terminal.
Our home is full of art and old renovated furniture we have collected from France, Britain and Iceland. We believe in an relaxed and bohemian style.

Where is it?


We live in the center of Reykjavik, at a stones throw from all the main tourist attractions, restaurants, shops and museum. The hip area, Thingholtin is more like a village than anything else, with small speciality shops, the local fishmonger, cheesemonger and bakery (which sells heavenly sourdough bread).
The nature is close, we see the mountains from our street and the harbour is just 10 minutes walking distance.
