About Pia Rakel Sverrisdottir

I am born in Skotland but my parents are from Iceland and Finland. I was educated in Denmark with architecture and glassart. But my inspiration always has been the nature of Iceland. So thats why the house is both a residence and workingplace for me, when I´m not in Copenhagen

Pia Rakel Sverrisdottir purchased this house in 2003

Cosy and Homely

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here in this cottage by the lake. Close to the Golden Circle it was the perfect base for us, and we enjoyed exploring the mountains and waterfalls nearby and discovering many of the hot pools. The terrace overlooking the lake is a superb spot to relax in the sunshine.

Peaceful Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What an amazingly peaceful retreat away from busy city life :)

The cabin was so cozy and wonderful, it was hard to leave at the end of my stay!

Pia is a great host and the cabin was in great condition for my stay. Everything was clean, neat and tidy.

I very much look forward to staying in this lovely spot again :)

It was only a quick 30 minute drive to the city and there was lots to see and do close by, and it was definitely inspiring to see Pia's artwork on display.

Thanks so much Pia!

fantastic

  • 5 of 5

I have been Pía'a guest several times and it has never been a letdown. The closeness to the lake is great. One can go horseriding at a farm close by. If I don't want to go to the water I can walk in the opposite direction up the mountain. I also had space there to work on my pictures. There are plenty of locations there to explore.

It was so beautifull silence in your house and the watch to the sea was like a dream.

  • 5 of 5

Hy Pia,

we want write you much more earlier but we had no internet. We get a connection to your wifi but we don't get in the internet. But this was no problem we had such a great time in iceland it was incredible. The landscape, the people and all around was great. It was so beautifull silence in your house and the watch to the sea was like a dream. We had a leasing car and drive every day to different places around your house. We had seen so much and we wanted to seen more but the time was not enouth. I send you a picture from Semira and me at seljalandsfoss and one at the sunset by your house. We enjoy the time so much and we will thank you for sharing your house with us.

best wishes from Semira and Christian
