Overview

Photos and Description of this Northwest holiday cottage

2 Bedroom, Loft, Fire Place With Mountain View

Weary private house with spectacular view over one of the most beautiful valley in Iceland, the house is a hunting lodge with two bedrooms and a loft, big fire place, kitchen, wc and a shower.

To find this house you need a car :) and when driving from Reykjavík you take the first access in the valley ( before driving over Vatnsdalsá/river Vatnsdalsá) and drive about 19 km in and then the house is on your right hand up the hill across the farm Ás. The name of the house is Áslundur. You can drive around the valley and if you have a good jeep 4x4 you can take the road up on the mountain in the end of the valley, but it is a good custom never be a single car when traveling in high altitude.

About Björn Ragnar Lárusson

I´m the son of the owner and I was 6 years old when we got this land and starting to plant and make the first step for building our own summer house. And here is our first house :) a beautiful 50 m2 with 20 m2 loft and a big fire place and a great view.

Björn Ragnar Lárusson purchased this cottage in 1994

Why Björn Ragnar Lárusson chose Iceland

Just a special place and the view is the most attractive about this location in the valley.

Ruhiges Ferienhaus in wunderschöner Landschaft

  • 4 of 5

Nach einer Woche in Stykkishòlmur kamen wir abends in Àslundur an. Es war genauso wie Björn es beschrieben hatte. Auch seine Wegebeschreibung war absolut hilfreich und genau. Und sein Vater hatte uns noch perfekte Instruktionen für die letzten Meter gegeben, sodaß wir (Allrad braucht man schon) zum Ausladen direkt vor der Tür stehen konnten. Die Anweisung wie die elektrische Anlage in Betrieb geht, mussten wir uns zusammenreimen (sie war zentral ausgeschaltet), aber dann war alles gut. Warm Wasser war immer ausreichend da, auch für sechs Personen: mit dem Duschen musste man sich halt ein wenig absprechen. Aber leider war nicht genug Bettzeug für die sechs angekündigten Personen da, sodaß wir mit Wolldecken und Sofakissen improvisieren mussten.

Ich kann nur jedem dieses Ferienhaus im Grünen empfehlen. Der Kontakt mit dem Vermieter war problemlos und sehr freundlich.

Es ist aber schade, daß wohl manche Mieter das Haus nicht so sauber verlassen, wie sie es aber gerne vorfinden möchten. Das ist keine Kritik am Vermieter. (It is a pity that some guests don't leave the house as clean as they would like to find it when arriving. This is not critizising the landlord.)

Man kann von Àslundur viele große und kleine Touren machen - mit dem Auto und auch zu Fuß. Eine sehr schöne Wanderung ist am Ende des Tales der Weg zum Wasserfall. Wir hatten eine wunderschöne und erlebnisreiche Woche in einem tollen, gemütlichen Haus, in dem wir uns sehr wohlfühlten und auch gerne wiederkommen.
