Our cottage is perfectly situated on the south coast if you plan to explore many of the islands wonders such as the GOLDEN CIRCLE and THINGVELLIR. Only 50 MIN. drive from/to REYKJAVIK and 10 MIN. drive to nearest town SELFOSS with 7000 inhabitants and all services. It feels remote but yet there is a restaurant with in a less than 5 min. drive.The cabin got two seperated full size beds in one bedroom and L shaped bed, one and a half length, in the other bedroom / Also a sleeping couch in the living room. The kitchen got everything needed plus the world best water running - no extra costs! Also a small gas stove, fridge, cattle and coffee makers.
