This beautiful house with 8 akers of land is in the heart of south Iceland. Driving to the nearest town, Selfoss, only takes 15 min and 50 min to Reykjavík or Thingvellir national park. Then its ideal to take the golden circle tour and drive to Gullfoss and Geysir. All around the old Geysir are spouting hot springs, such as Strokkur (the butter Churn), which erupts every 3-5 minutes.

We have a chicken coop so every morning you get fresh eggs for breakfast, we also have 7 very gentle Icelandic riding horses. Horseback rides can be arranged. Next summer 5 of our mares will have foals all of them will be born between 1 june and 25 of august, witnessing the birth of a foal is unforgettable!

In the garden you get your own fresh vegetable and herbs during the harvesting season and there you also have a large out door hot tub.

Farm house in Hofdatun is a very good place to stay. My family are 8 people totally to live there in May. It let us feel like a real home in Iceland. All of us all like there and enjoy it. The house is big, confortable and fully equipped. Especially, there is a friendly house owner, she showed us her farm. And let us get closer with the sheeps and horses, we even saw the lambs born and have a chance to ride the horse. Everything was amazing for us. In addition, we also could pick up the eggs by ourselves and for free. Anyway, it is really a wonderful place to live there and worth to stay. We can't forget it easily. more
