    Description

    Hi we are a family of 3 l and 2 sons, two more they have there own place we live in a little village on the south coast of Iceland here is regularly bus so travel is easy in the area. We breed chicken as pets so part of living with us is patting our pets we have about 13 chicken, few clicks and 3 cats. We have big garden and most of the help is there I have been going through some illness and can't keep up with the work both in the house and outside.
    The village is the oldest place of shopping in Iceland, now is it sleepy place with old houses. We are close to the sea 50meters and about an hour drive to Þingvellir and the golden circle 10 min drive to Selfoss where you can shop or go to a pub, cinema or one of many village fairs. Our home will become your home while staying with us. And yes we have WiFi.
