About our home

Our home is close to Reykjavík's city center, the house has 2 apartments, we live upstairs, with big balcony where you have sun from the morning until late afternoon. It is a quiet neighborhood, but still very central. On the 1st floor of our apartment we have the kitchen - a small laundry room with washing machine and drier, dining room, living room, small WC, big balcony. Then a few steps up and we have a TV-room, a few steps up and we are on the 2nd floor - where we have 1 big bedroom - queensized bed, 1 bedroom bedsize 1,2 m., 1 bedroom bedsize 1m.

For those that like the country side, they could get a key to our summerhouse on Snaefellsnes, below Snaefellsjokull (the journey to the center of the earth by Jules Verne). It is an old barn that we have changed into a rustic summerhouse with all facilities needed. It's location is ideal to visit the National park on Snaefellsnes, to walk in lava-fields, to take a walk on a glacier, to go whale watching, or just to sit out side on a quiet summer day.
There are direct flights to Reykjavík summer 2015 from Lyon and Paris. ( and


More about us

  1. We are a family of 4, Magnús (57)- a photographer and artist, Bjarnveig(47) a computer programmer and analyzer. Our children are: daughter 17 years old, Vala Rún, and a son 8 year old David Steinn.

    We have made 2 previous exchanges, both in south of France and love this way of travelling. We find that our guests from France like our very rural summer house on Snaefellsnes even better than our fully equiped house in Reykjavík, understandable as the location is exceptional.

    For summer 2015 we would like to exchange homes for 2- 3 weeks, somewhere between 10th june - 05 july , Montpellier, Marseilles or Andorra.

Reykjavík is a nice city to visit. With swimming pools, art museum, and good food.
In June and July the days are very long, the sun comes up early and hardly goes down.
Our house is located close to 'Perlan' it take 10 minutes to walk up the hill to it: a nice restaurant, museum with a viewing platform at the top of the building. It takes about 15 min. to walk to the only sand-beach in Reykjavík:

It is easy to take day-tours to see some of our most popular touristic places: Þingvellir where our first parlament was founded, (Þingvellir), Gullfoss and Geysir, the Blue lagoon(
