About our home

Our apartment is 140 years old, with high ceilings (3.40 m), but modern rebuilt. The two living rooms/dinner room have tall windows (3 glass layer, which keeps traffic noise out) with high relief on all walls. The large living room is connected to the next room by a wide entrance (the studio room, where a double-bed sofa can be used for extra guests). The walls are off-white, and give an airy ambiance and a patrician atmosphere from years gone. The master bedroom has a king-size bed, and the guest bedroom a queen size bed. The hall is spacious. The kitchen has white cupboards and black granite top and place for 2-3 people for breakfast. The stove is electric with 4 plates and a large oven. There is a full size fridge and a separate freezer, wine cooler, microwave oven, coffee machines for both espresso and brewed coffee, toaster, mixer etc. The kitchen connects through French doors to a balcony facing the inner garden of the building. The bathroom has heated floor and a glass-walled shower corner.


More about us

  1. Ville (Wilhelm) and I have been married for 38 years. We have one daughter (Christina) who gave us a lovely granddaughter (Hillevi). Ville and I are scientists, both university professors: I am a marine ecologist and he a freshwater ecologist. Both of us have travelled a lot to all parts of the world the 35 years of our career, attending conferences and doing research. We retired a few years ago and continue enjoying traveling. We like to play golf, attend sport events, theaters, concerts of classical and popular music. This is the first time we will try to swap a house. If it works all right we hope to introduce a new exciting project in our lives.

Where is it?


Situated in the most central part of Malmö, with ample shopping, 50 m from a cinema-complex (all movies are spoken in the original language with subtitles). Many cafes and restaurants are found within short walking distance. The Opera House is ca 300 m and the concert hall 1 km from the apartment. The beautiful Slottsparken (The Castle Park), with channels is a few hundred m away. Sightseeing-boats and pedal-boats for rent are just around the corner. Every August the city organizes the Malmö festival, that lasts for a week. All entertainment is free: jazz, samba, classical music, rock etc., can be heard in the open air or huge tents (sorry but the beer and wine you have to pay for).
