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.

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.
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:)
