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!

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.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We can only recommend you with all our heart to stay at this wonderful place!

The location of the house is just perfect for day trips all around island. In addition, it is perfect if you are looking for a quite location and if you want to relax from the workaday life. You will find everything you need (even a nice collection of videos and a tv) and the house is super clean. We had a wonderful time there!

Amazing view and cosy cottage by the lake!

  • 5 of 5

We spend a week in this amazing and fantastic cottage situaeded just by the Medallvatn. We enjoyed sitting at the porch overlooking the lake and the birds nesting in the mountain above . The cottage is nice and cosy and there are art exhibitions in every window. This makes the breakfast by the big windows even more amazing. In the back of the house rules the Medalfell, wich offers a trekking over the top, where you can be lucky to see the Snæfelljøkul in the distance.
