Cosy flat in Sweden's most bike-friendly city

We live in a 4-room-flat on the top of a three-storey-house built in 1949, in a quiet neighbourhood.

One of Sweden's largest parks, the Pildammsparken, is just 200 m away. Others distances:
- Malmö's old town 2 km
- Ribersborg Beach, sandy and family friendly, on the Öresund 2 km
- New Västra Hamnen area, meeting point for young people, with Malmö's most prominent landmark, the "twisting" tower Turning Torso 2 km
- Triangeln Railway station 1,5 km. A train brings you to and from Copenhagen centre, half an hour away, every twenty minutes.

Malmö is one of the world's most bike-friendly cities! As we are keen cyclotourists, members of the Tandem Club de France for example, we would be happy to help you plan your bike tours in and around Malmö and Copenhagen.

We have no car anymore. But you can park a car along the park or in our street at a low cost or even for free in the streets just a few blocks away.

Our flat is quite cosy, functional and clean. Some details may be a little worn and old-fashioned. In older flats like ours the kitchens are comparatively small for example. But you will find everything you need: electric cooker, refrigerator, freezer, microwave oven, dishwasher and a table for four persons.

"Tout homme a deux pays, le sien et puis la France" (Henri de Bornier). Pour un couple francophile comme nous, quoi de plus naturel que de terminer cette présentation par quelques mots en français. Nous habitons le même appartement depuis 1979. Nos enfants y ont grandi. "Tu ne peux aimer une maison qui n'a point de visage et où les pas n'ont point de sens", disait Saint-Exupéry. Si vous partagez ce point de vue, venez aimer notre maison, notre ville et ses alentours!

Lifestyle

We are "cyclos", because cyclotourism is the best way to learn to see and appreciate life's little wonders. That said, if there are no proper roads, we prefer hiking. We also like to read an exciting book, sing, play and listen to music (jazz, opera, chansons, fados ...) or enjoy a radio or TV documentary.
