Description of the area in more detail:
Our cottages sit right under the majestic Pétursey mountain and provide a fantastic view in all directions. There are numerous attractions and points of interest nearby, for example the famous Eyjafjallajökull glacier volcano which erupted in 2010, the Mýrdalsjökull and Sólheimarjökull glaciers with the possibility of a glacier jeep tour or a glacier walking tour, the beautiful Dyrhólaey peninsula which is one of the most famous landmarks of Iceland and a favorite nesting areas for the cute puffins in the summer months, as well as beautiful black beaches, basalt columns and sea stacks. 20 km east of Pétursey is a sweet little village of Vík with a supermarket, post office and a gas station, while 16 km west of Pétursey is the famous Skógar folk museum and a waterfall. You are welcome to take a pleasant walk to the beach or take a ride down there on the back of a renown Icelandic horse which you can rent on the neighboring farm. If you prefer to visit us in winter, there is a high possibility that you will be treated to a spectacular northern lights show.
And if you would rather take it slowly and just relax in the cottage and on the premises of the farm, you are welcome to sit on a patio and read a book, grill outside or have a picnic, walk up to the top of the Pétursey mountain or visit the sweet calves in our cow house and maybe feed them fresh carrots from our own carrot fields.
- Please book bed linen/towel or bring your own.
You can also bring a sleeping bag.
- The key to the cottage can be picked up on the farm, in the white house on the left. Just come to the door where we will greet you and hand you the key with any extra information you might need.

We stayed at cottage 5 for two days and we had the best time! It is the best place we stayed in Iceland. Amazing surroundings, clean and comfortable cottage. The owners were both very nice and friendly. We had a wonderful stay. It?s an ideal location to visit south Iceland, about 15 mins drive to Vik. I want to stay here again !!

We had a great stay in the bungalo. The location is as expected as it has 15 min drive from Vic and scenic driving is enjoyable. The bungalo is basically equipped. I enjoy the scenario through the bathroom window. Overall I recommend this since there is few bungalo available in the nearby area.

Loved the bungalo and the location was so amazing. It's outside Vik but with Atlantic close you can hear the surf and see beautiful sunrise/sunsets. We like being away from the city and supporting small local owners.

Stayed here for 2 nights for NYE 2017. We were having dinner talking about where to go to look for the Northern Lights then walked outside the front door and found ourselves staring right at the aurora borealis! It was a great location to watch the lights. There are a few other cabins around, but for the most part nice and dark.
The cabin itself was great. Fully equipped kitchen and a modern appliances as well as a nice bathroom. It was clearly recently built. Lots of windows and a great deck, even though we were never there in daylight and it was too cold to sit outside at night. Only complaint is that the double bed was not very comfortable. I slept fine though.
If I came back to this region I would definitely considering staying here again.

We (four adults) spent 3 nights at this perfectly comfortable cabin at this farm stay property. The host was very accommodating and even let us help feed the baby cows after we toured her dairy barn. The carrots grown on her farm were even better. The location is perfect for exploring the area around Vik and the Glacier Lagoon. Our visit to Iceland was greatly enriched by are stay at Vestri Petursey.

Perfect located for trips to Skogafoss, Skaftafell and Dyrhólaey. The Farmers are pretty nice and our Kids had a lot of fun with the cows and carrots packing. The house is nice and clean, also got a TV (which we didn´t use, so much to see around there) and Wifi. Thanks again for the perfect stay!

The location is beautiful and the hosts are very friendly and accommodating. Just a few minutes form Vik, Reynisfjara beach and more.
We would highly recommend this lovely cabin to anyone!

Lovely location and newly decorated, close to Dyrholey.
Although we booked for 5 people, there are no duvet and pillows for the 5th person. I suppose we could probably ask for a set but not sure if they would charge if we do.

This property is in a lovely location with great views up to the mountain behind. The cottage was well equipped and comfortable. The only thing we missed was internet so we could check the weather but we were aware there was no internet from the description of the property. We would definitely stay here again.

This chalet was perfect for a few days stay for us and our 2 children. It was cosy and warm and a nice location, just a short drive to the black beach.
