Overview

South Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Mountain and river views, touch with nature and the surrounding landscape

The atmosphere is very peaceful and you are in touch with nature and the surrounding landscape.

Birdwatching from the window or from the patio during summer up to 25 species within 1 week!

Beautiful environment with a great view. There is some distance to the next house so the house is in a very quiet and relaxed location. There is a porch surrounding the house.

Some great rivers in the area to fish in. The town Hvolsvollur is not far a way, 10 minutes drive. There you can find a grocery store, swimming pool, farmers market, vine store and more. The ferry to the Westman Islands is very close to the house and there are also 2 golf courses within in a 15 minutes drive. The house is very well located located near many interesting sites for example mount Hekla, Eyjafjallajökull, Vatnajökull glacier, Þórsmörk, Gullfoss, Geysir and Vestman Island.

The house is approximately 50 sq.meters plus a roomy sleeping loft. In the sleeping loft there is a queen size bed and single beds for three people so up to 4-5 people can sleep in the loft. In a separate living room there is, sleeping couch that accommodate 1 two 2 people. Good kitchen with a washing machine, microwave, coffee machine, CD player, radio and a television, grill. Pillows and duvets. In there house there is a bathroom with shower.

Beautiful environment with a great view. There is some distance to the next house so the house is in a very quiet and relaxed location. There is a porch surrounding the house.

Cosy "little" cottage in the countryside

  • 5 of 5

After staying in Soffias fantastic apartment in Reykjavik it was time to take a look at the Icelandic countryside, Seljalandsfoss, Thorsmork, Skógarfoss, Eyjafjallajokul and other wonderful pearls of Icelands nature. We booked some nights in this very cosy cottage living next to local farmers and cute horses. The cottage is very cosy and has room for lots of people to sleep, it is clean, cosy and close to the main road - so you will not get lost! Soffia gave us lots of good hints regarding where to go to explore the fantastic nature and where to buy groceries.

We can highly recommend this place when you want to explore the south side of Iceland.

Amazing experience!!

  • 5 of 5

My travel partner and I stayed here in May for 5 nights and it was exactly what we needed! This property is close to the main road (1) and a great location if you're looking to visit Þórsmörk, Hekla volcano, and Reynisfjara Beach area in south Iceland. It has a very peaceful and calm feeling to it, especially with the birds. It's surrounded with farms in the greater area which have lots of cute horses you can say hello to. Soffia the owner is very helpful, and the place is well equipped and well maintained. I would recommend staying here as a couple or as a group, there's lots of sleeping space.
