Beautiful cottage in a beautiful and peaceful rounding at Hraunborgir in Grímsnes- and Grafningshreppi, just by the Golden circle. Hraunborgir are only 70 km away from Reykjavik, the capital of Iceland. Our goal is to give you the best personal service available. From the cottage you have amazing view in all directions, for example to Mount Hekla and on a good day you can even see into the highlands.
The cottage is about 80 sqm on 2 stories. Enough space is for 6 people and even 8. On the ground floor you have the main space with nicely equipped kitchen, dining room, living room and bathroom with a shower. On the upper floor are sleeping accommodations for 6 people. On top of that there is a sofa bed on the ground floor for 2 people. The cottage also has a TV, DVD and CD player. Outside there is a nice hot tub to relax in after a good day. There is also a bbq and table to sit at outside.
In wintertime it is possible to go outside and see the stars and the beautiful Northern Lights while relaxing in this wonderful place in the countryside where there is no light pollution.
In the summertime a Service center is open where it is possible to wash and dry the laundry, have a dip in the swimming pool or relax in the steam bath. A nicely equipped playground is outside along with a mini-golf course and inside we have pool table and air hockey. There is also a par 3, 9 hole golf course suitable for everyone, beginners and professionals. In the Service center is an Internet connection. Also a little store that sells most of things needed like food and other things. In the Service enter is a nice living room area where guests can sit down, buy wine and beer and relax.
There is a short distance from Hraunborgir to many of Iceland?s pearls of nature like Þingvellir, Gullfoss, Geysir and Kerið, just to mention few. The location is excellent to travel from and explore Iceland?s pearls of nature and other interesting places in south and southwest Iceland.

We spent a week in one of the cottages in August 2019. The location is very good - close to the Golden Circle attractions etc. but also entirely private. The cottage itself was a bit tired though, in terms of decoration and furnishing. The TV has no channels, the hot tub had no instructions for use. Old cooker and no washing facilities - they are still advertised as existing in the village centre/bar but this isn't actually the case.
The swimming pool was good but the hot tubs malfunctioned several times. There is a possibility to get fresh bread and other foodstuffs from a neighbour but we only found this out the day we were leaving - a shame. Beer and pizzas are available in the bar also. The new owners and staff are friendly and hard working and the place has a nice family atmosphere - safe and fun for young children. But there's some way to go before this is the finished product - it needs some upgrading and better communication.

Snyrtilegur en svolítið gamall og lúinn bústaður. Engu að síður kósi og fínn fyrir stutta helgargistingu þar sem markmiðið er samvera í þægilegu umhverfi.
