Large cottage located on a farm, Kalastadir in Hvalfjjordur. Kalastaðir is only 55 km from Reykjavík in a beautiful landscape. The location is ideal for day trip sightseing tours to tourist attractions in the South and West part of Iceland e.g. Blue Lagoon, Reykjavík, Gullfoss, Geysir, Thingvellir, Snæfellsnes and Borgarfjordur. The cottage is close to the sea and the view is breathtaking. If you want to take a brake from driving and enjoy what the area has to offer, you can enjoy a stroll by the sea and watch the seals play along the shore. The local swimmingpool is also close by and the local golf course. There are many hiking routes in the area and there is a lake close by where you can buy fishing permit.
