Quiet flat in Sweden's most bike-friendly city

We live in a 3-room-flat on the first floor (premier étage) of a eight-storey-house built in 1967, in a very quiet neighbourhood, 3 km south of the city centre of Malmö. The house has a lift. You can't see any cars from where we live. A cycle path just outside takes you comfortably int the city centre.
Our flat is quite functional. You will find everything you need: electric induction cooker, refrigerator, freezer, microwave oven, dishwasher and a table for at least four persons. Special comfort: our bedroom has two adjustable beds. We have a large, east-facing glass balcony. Very suitable for breakfast!
There is a large, well-assorted COOP grocery store only 300 m from here. Other distances:
- Ärtholmens Sommarstad - a large allotment; beautiful indivual gardens - 300 m
- Pildammsparken, one of Sweden's largest parks - 1 km
- Triangeln Railway station. A train brings you to and from Copenhagen centre, half an hour away, every twenty minutes - 2 km
- Malmö's Old town - 3 km
- Ribersborg Beach, sandy and family friendly, on the Öresund - 4 km
- New Västra Hamnen area, meeting point for young people, with Malmö's most prominentl landmark, the "twisting" tower Turning Torso - 4 km
- Malmö Central station - 4 km

Malmö is one of the world's most bike-friendly cities! Partly for that reason we have no car anymore. There are, nevertheless, a few visitor /Intervac/ parking spaces nearby.
As we are keen cyclotourists we would be happy to help you plan bike tours in and around Malmö.

Pour un couple francophile comme nous, quoi de plus naturel que de terminer cette présentation par quelques mots en français. Après tout, "tout homme a deux pays, le sien et puis la France". (Henri de Bornier). Ne sommes-nous pas tous héritiers de la Déclaration des droits de l'Homme et du Citoyen de 1798? Un clin d'oeil aux intéressés français ...

Lifestyle

We are "cyclos", "poètes de la route" as the French say, because cyclotourism is the best way to learn to see and appreciate life's little wonders. In Autumn, we love hiking in the forest. We also like to read an exciting book, sing, play the guitar and listen to music (jazz, opera, chansons, Gernan "schlager*", fados ...) or enjoy a radio or TV documentary.
