  • Accommodation


    We live in the Capital Tórshavn.
    I have a room about 15 squaremeters available, with access to kitchen, & toilet and a shower. There are 3 large windows in the room, with view to the garden (same level).
    There is access to a piano in the livingroom (beskde the room)
    The room has a nice bed/couch, a small drawer, some 2-3 chairs, a table and some bookcases.
    There is also access to the about 250 m2 garden.
    The house is situated close to center, only 10 -15 min walk, and only 2 min to a bus who drives you to the center.

    We only use glutenfree flour to bake with here in the house.
    There is a coffe mashine, a cettle and some other kitchen machines.
    There will be some oatmeal available, bread and food from the freezer)

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    There is a swimming pool about 10 min walk and 5 min with bus from our house. There are 4 evangelical churches in Tórsavn if you count in the suburbs Argir and Hoyvík.
    Around 10 pm (9.30 pm schooldays) I expect there to be peace in the home. But we dont hear very well between the floors so a bit of noise is ok, but not loud music/sound.
    Free internet.
