About us

We are Thorsteinn Hauksson (www.hauksson.com), composer of modern/classical music, and Steinunn Sigurðardóttir (www.steinunn.net), writer and journalist. We bought the villa in 1997. A lot of work has been done to keep up this beautiful house. We have for instance renovated all sleeping rooms.

We are back in France, Strasbourg, after some years in Berlin. We love to spend time in Thoristun during the winter, if the villa is free. It is an ideal place to hunt for the spectacular Northern Lights, which can appear any time from the end of August onward. We are happy to answer your emails and questions, and we hope for those of you who decide to stay that you will enjoy the villa as much as we do when we are there.
