A rather new duplex house in west Iceland, right by the sea, with a magnificent view over the fjord, from the backyard

My house is a wooden duplex house in a very small village in west Iceland. It is about 130 sqm and has a garden with a magnificent view over the fjord. It has an open kitchen into the living room, one bathroom, 3 bedrooms, laundry room and a garage that can be used as a bedroom. From this village, it is easy to take day trips to all directions and one could manage to see a big part of the country by just taking day trips from there. Dalasýsla region has many historical places and the people is proud of their heritage that we can trace to the Norwegian Vikings and an Irish princess.The past is hidden in every corner, place names and farm names. The surroundings also have many of the most beautiful places in Iceland where one can really enjoy the nature.

About Our Family

I am a single mother with 2 children who likes to travel the world. I have already traveled a lot when I was younger and I am starting again now, have traveled quite a lot the last year or so. Did an exchange in France the summer of 2017, then with my grandmother and my son. This time I want to travel with my 9 years old son and my 17 years old daughter.

I like to see new things, getting to know new people in new cultures and to taste local food of each country.
I speak Icelandic, English and French fluently (or almost) and on top of that I have learnt Italian, Spanish and Danish but have not used those last 3 as much but I try and really like to learn new languages :)
