NEW: ÁSTA´S COUNTRY HIDE AWAY, GEOTHERMAL HOT POT, GARDEN & DECK

South Iceland House Rental Photos and Description

Cozy country cottage, surrounded by nature, charming and peaceful cottage

These 2 charming separate summer cottages - Sel and Ásta´s - are situated surrounded by nature, each in a private location on its own lot, near Lake Gislholt and about 4 km from our farm Skinnhufa. They are furnished with attention to detail and offer you a typical and homely Icelandic summer house atmosphere.

IDEAL LOCATION for daytrips to all the sights in the South of Iceland! Detailed information and descriptions are in the cottages for you. We gladly assist you with any queries you have!

Some of the day trips: Golden Circle, Geysir, Gullfoss and Thingvellir; Skogar waterfall and museum, bird cliffs near Vik (black beach) and Dyrholaey. Or take the ferry to the Westman Islands! Blue Lagoon and scenic drive along coast road; Reykjavik in 80km. In summer you can take the highland bus or Hekla taxi to Landmannalaugar and its hot springs in the highlands, or drive to the bottom of Hekla and hike to the top!

The nearest SWIMMING POOL is 7km away. Insider tip: a very rustic old geothermal pool in the middle of nowhere: Seljavallalaug gamla, info in the cottages!

A very good RIDING STABLE is nearby (7 km), catering for beginners and experienced riders alike, see here for more information: www.herridarholl.is

Bird watching: From May until the end of July you can watch up to 25 bird species. An owl lives nearby and you can sometimes hear the loons on the lake.

Originally german, I have lived here in Iceland since 2000 with my Icelandic husband, icelandic dog, chickens, sheep and horses! We love our home and we enjoy sharing our knowledge and experiences of Iceland and our area with you. Originally I came here because of horse riding and today I feel at least as icelandic as anything else! I am looking forward to welcoming you in the country I chose to be my home! We have 2 more cottages for rent under nr. 535515.

Maja Siska purchased this house in 2013

These very cosy summer cottages are a beautiful country hide away with Icelandic flair! Also a great location in the South of Iceland; within easy reach of great day trips and excursions, in summer even into the highlands. And very practical: 80km from Reykjavik and with the little traffic it is always an experience to drive over the scenic pass Hellisheidi to go to town:)

The cottages are about 4 km from our farm and we gladly assist you during your stay if you wish.

Calm and cosy atmosphere, beautify landscape.

TRAUMHAFT SCHÖN

  • 5 of 5
Asta's Versteck hat uns verzaubert; das Haus liegt wunderschön am Gislholts See und ist durch seine Lage zwischen Bäumen nicht einsehbar und dadurch sehr privat. Das Haus hat unglaublich viel Charme, der Wohnraum bietet unheimlich viel Platz und man kann hier wunderbar auch mal einen ganzen verregneten Tag verbringen. Die Küche ist gut ausgestattet, alles notwendige ist vorhanden. Leider konnten wir die das Sonnendeck und den Hot Pot wegen des Wetters nicht nutzen, aber das macht nichts, denn wir kommen sicher bald wieder um das nachzuholen.
Maja's Tipps, die sie im Haus für ihre Gäste bereit hält verdienen ihren Namen wirklich: sie versprechen unvergessliche Erlebnisse bei den Tagesausflügen, die man in dieser Gegend sehr gut machen kann.
Danke für alles Maja - wir hatten eine wunderbare Zeit in Asta's Versteck.
