Description

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cottage in Capital Region - Countryside cottage

Sleeps 2 in an open loft. 1 bathroom

Charming cottage in a cozy and peaceful area. Perfect for an adventurous holiday in the Icelandic countryside. Thirty min. from the capital plus nearby access routes to the beautiful south and south west. Doing the well known Golden Circle is perfect from the cottage with Thingvellir 30 min. away on the same route. Icelands highest waterfall Glymur in Hvalfjordur and the beautiful hiking trail leading to it is not far.

The entire Hvalfjordur area is beautiful and magnificent in its own right and worth enjoying. The cottage sleeps 2 with a double bed in an upstairs loft.

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed
  • wheelchair inaccessible

Peaceful location and beautiful cottage

  • 5 of 5

The owner was amazing to work with and extremely helpful and responsive. We stayed for 3 nights in mid October. It was a perfect location to return to every night. Nice to have a comfortable place to call home when traveling and we loved having the fireplace in the evenings. It was a beautiful and quiet location and was perfect for taking day trips to southern and western Iceland, including into Reykjavik. My only regret is that we couldn't stay longer!

Ein wirklich gemütliches und sehr liebevoll eingerichtetes Plätzchen. Zur Erkundung des Südwestens ideal gelegen. Wir kommen gerne wieder hierher.

Magnifique cottage dans un cadre enchanteur

  • 5 of 5

Le cottage est magnifique, dans un cadre enchanteur, très tranquille et entouré d'arbres. Situé au bord d'un fjord offrant de nombreuses possibilités de randonnées, proche du cercle d'or et de Reyjkjavik.

Siggi est très serviable et atteignable facilement, la maison est très propre et dispose de tous les équipements nécessaires. Il faut monter des escaliers assez raide pour atteindre la chambre à coucher en mezzanine. Le salon est très cosy (on n'avait même plus envie de sortir visiter!) et la cuisine et la salle de bain bien équipées.

Nous avons passé 5 jours et avons profité des nombreux guides à disposition dans le salon pour découvrir les environs. Ne manquez pas la randonnée à la cascade de Glymur!

Je recommanderais définitivement ce cottage à toute personne visitant l'Islande!

Cottage très bien situé et très calme. Jardin magnifique.

La propriétaire est très facilement joignable.

Le logement est très propre.

Il manque juste un deuxième crochet pour serviette dans la salle de bain.

Je recommande fortement !

Excellent cottage for a romantic get-away!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 3 days and it was perfect. Siggi was very friendly and helpfull, and always responded to our emails within 30 min. and within 5 min. in 90% of cases. The cottage has an excellent location, with view of the mountains and, after walking down the drive-way, the sea. Although the nearest big supermarket is located about 40 min. away, once you have the basics there´s a smaller one just 14 minutes out if you need to stock up. Kitchen has all basic utilities. The sleeping area and the fireplace are worth an extra mentioning, they really make this cottage stand out. We would have loved to stay longer!

The Hvalfjordur fjord is one of the most attractive and magnificent big fjords in Iceland and very close to the capital. From the cottage you can go further west as well as taking the route to the magnificent south cost. It is a 30 min.drive to Reykjavik as well as a 30 min. drive to Thingvellir and from there further south. Doing The Golden Circle from the cottage is the thing to do.
