Nous avons été très bien accueilli dans cette grande maison. Il y a de quoi s'occuper. Malheureusement, ce soir là, nous étions les 2 seuls locataires sur presque 20 couchages...

Beautiful and charming ancestral house with wooden walls. Very well equipped kitchen. Comfy bed and clean bathroom. Nice veranda. Highly recommand... if you're willing to do the ride.

Sistemazione molto suggestiva ed accogliente ma raggiungibile solo attraverso 20 km di strada sterrata (non proprio comodo se si viaggia con una city car). Se da un lato il fatto di essere così isolata la penalizza, dall'altro permette anche di godere appieno della tranquillità e del paesaggio islandese. La cordialità e disponibilità dello staff fa dimenticare tutto il resto. Consigliatissima l'escursione a cavallo!!

Bus
Guests who are not driving their own car are picked up at Egilsstaðir or at the byway to Húsey for a reasonable fee on request.
Car
The location on Google Maps is wrong. Húsey is 30 km road no. 1 (main road). To visit Húsey you take road no. 925 from road no. 1 (turning near the bridge over Jökulsá á Dal) then follow road no. 926 to the end; 55 km from Egilsstaðir.
