Vik has 300 people and Esytri-Solheimar is about 10 km to the West. Sigrud spends her summers running the wonderful guesthouse, which has been redone recently. Her other home is Germany and she gets many German clients, so it's nice not to run into American and Canadians. Well, at least I think so. The farm is really close to Eyjafjallajökull and the photo I'm posting shows Sigrud with a book with her farm on the cover.
With advance notice, she will cook dinner for you. Usually fish or with more notice, lamb. It's a great deal and you can settle down, enjoy some wine (you REALLY should not enjoy wine and then drive in Iceland....much less tolerant than USA) and have a great meal.
Why did I rate it 3 stars in value ?....well it's NOT against Eystri-Solheimar...it's Iceland....geez, it is really expensive. And I'm told that before the economic meltdown of 2010, it was worse.
