Our little cottage Hóll is located in a peaceful fishing village near the harbor, ideal for those looking for peace and quiet. Restaurants, shops, swimming pool and walking pads awaits those who want to stay in the area.

The space

Hóll or ,,The house on The Hill" in English is an old wooden house built in 1921 when there were few streets in the village. Hóll has two floors, on the first floor is the main bedroom with one double bed, bathroom with a shower, washing machine, entrance into the garden, and another bedroom with a single bed. We provide bed sheets and towels for our guests. On the second floor is the old fashion kitchen, the living room and the entrance to a patio. Between the two floors is a very steep stairway and may not be suitable for people with mobility problems.

Hóll is located very near the renovated ,,French Hospital" which was in use in the eighteenth century when the French fishermen stayed in Fáskrúðsfjörður bay for safety. The Hospital is today a popular Hotel, bar and a restaurant where you can have delicious Icelandic local food. You can walk along the harbor and have a nice nightcap before you walk back home.
Fáskrúðsfjörður is a quiet nice place with fantastic view to the mountains and lots of local walking pads in the village and also between villages.
A nearby public transit is located on the Rue de Hóll which is just few seconds away. Notice that all the streets in Fáskrúðsfjörður has also its french name! In wintertime Fáskrúðsfjörður is famous because of its Aurora Borealis scenary!

Enjoy your stay:)

This little house is lovely. It feels so much larger inside, as there are various nooks and crannies in which to sit, whilst enjoying the amazing view (when the mist lifts). I felt so at (URL HIDDEN) like a little Dutch house.

Holl cottage became our home from home. We decided that it was without a doubt the prettiest house in the village, perfectly sited to look over the fjord, and extremely comfortable and well equipped. The cottage was warm, cosy, and felt welcoming, not least because of the wonderful furnishings and decor. We even started planning our lives should we live there permanently! Helga was extremely good at communicating, and left us wanting for nothing - she even left chocolate and orange juice as a welcome gift. We visited a few of the eastern fjords but decided that we liked Fáskrúðsfjörður the best, because it is so friendly, compact, and has everything you need to enjoy spending a few days there. The supermarket is small but sells the basics, and whilst the swimming pool is also small you'll probably have the hot pot to yourself. As keen walkers we found some fantastic walks on the doorstep, made all the more impressive by the snow. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Thank you Helga!

We stayed at Helga's place for 2 nights. It was very clean and relaxing. What a beautiful view out of the kitchen window. I wish I had more time to just sit in front of the house and enjoy the views. One evening, we lit the candles, put on some music and just chatted without looking into our smart phones.

Three of us enjoyed our 2 night stay in this very cosy and well appointed little cottage. Helga made sure we had all that we needed and the House Manual was very informative, especially re what to see and where to go in the village and surrounds.

Helga doesn't only have a very beautiful and well equiped cottage, she also is a very nice and communiquant host. I strongly recommend this airbnb

What a charming place! I can't recommend it enough. Located in the old part of Fáskrúðsfjōrður, just a stones throw from the french Hospital, it's the perfect place to enjoy this beautiful old little town. The house was clean, comfortable and Helga was very accommodating. Safe to say, this was my favourite airbnb stay so far.

I love the countryside in Iceland, especially the fjords and the small villages and travel a lot around my country with friends and family all year around. My motto is ,,be positive and helpful" and I would like to give my guests the opportunity to enjoy the rural and the quiet areas in the country by staying at my cottage Hóll.
