Midhus Country House

Midhus Country House is a private country house in South Iceland.It is close to some of Iceland´s most famous natural attractions like Gullfoss, Geysir and Þingvellir. With spectacular mountain view over Hekla and Eyjafjallajökull, Midhus Country House is also in short distance from Eldar Private Lodge. It is a part of the Eldar concept, built on the same philosophy of comfort and tranquility. This elegant 5 suite country house can accommodate a maximum of 10 guests.

The 270 m2 / 2906 ft2 house has 5 double bedrooms, each with a separate bathroom, and a communal area with a hot tub, fully equipped kitchen, sun lounge and fireplace. The name Eldar means fires in Icelandic, or warrior who fights with fire in Old Norse. It reflects the bursting light of sunrises and sunsets, the playful northern light ribbons, the Country House´s comforting fireplace and the passion the owners have for their work.

    Life at Midhus Country House is comfortable and cozy. Dinner and breakfast is included as well as daily housekeeping. Our chef comes to the house and makes a three course meal every night and then prepares an easy breakfast that guests can help themselves to. Guests can have drinks of their choice from different types of white/red/sparkling that they pay upon departure. With the world of outdoor opportunities, guests can spend their days freely. However, 24 hour service can be provided upon request.

    Midhus Country House is situated on the boundary of country life and unharnessed nature. The view from the house is absolutely breathtaking. The foliage changes costume with each season, turning fiery red and golden yellow in autumn; muted brown in winter; fresh yellow-green in spring; and a deep, calming green in summer. The land rises and dips, rolling away from the highlands to the shore in a curvaceous flow, giving way to geothermally shaped lowlands before reaching the raging ocean roar. Private tours, to the near and far can naturally be arranged according to guests´ wishes.
