A modern beautiful 145 sq.m. house, only one hour from Reykjavik, located in the vicinity of all the main tourist attractions in South Iceland with a panoramic view to Hekla volcano and Eyjafjallajokull glacier. In wintertime it is a good place to experience the northern lights. The house has a beautiful architecture and design with special attention to its surroundings. This is a place to both relax and enjoy the proximity to nature. It is located in a very peaceful area surrounded by birch trees and typical native vegetation with many hiking opportunities in surrounding mountains and canions. The Golden Circle and the famous Geyser geothermal area is only 10 minutes away and the Gullfoss waterfall 10 min away.
