our lovely vacation house is located in the southern part of Iceland just 27 km from town Hella and only about 115km from Reykjavik. It is located at the entrance of the southern Icelandic highland in a land called "Litli-Klofi" where you have a breathtaking view off all the mountains. The environment around the house is green and very peaceful. The location is exceptional for day-tours to main attractions like Landmannalaugar and Seljalandsfoss.

Truly stunning landscapes and views - the photos can't quite capture how lovely it is! The house was much bigger than we expected. Everything was provided as described and we had no problems finding the place with the directions given to us. We met the neighbour's beautiful horses and had a fantastic, comfortable stay. Thank you Ýr :) we would love to return to Iceland one day.

Ŷr's place was stunning. The communications with her were very smooth and she let us know all the important things to be able to arrive there without issue. The cabin was beautiful and very cozy. We were very impressed since it all looked very clean and new. We would love to go back there and stay much longer.

Perfect location for golden circle and Landmannalaugar visiting. Remote and quite, surrounded by horses and birds only. House is well equiped, has everything you may need in your stay. I enjoyed my stay.
