Small Pyramid Cottage In Iceland Is Sustainable And Charming

This stunning pyramid cottage in Iceland is not only sustainable and charming, it’;s available to rent on AirBnB! It’;s about an hour and a half drive from Reykjavik. Located in the middle of Iceland’;s famed Golden Circle Route, the Geysir and Strokkur geysers, Gullfoss waterfall and Thingvellir National Park are all within easy reach. Or maybe you just want to hang out on the back deck of this pyramid? Or take a soak in the hot tub? Or view the night sky through the glass triangle skylight? What a clever construction – in a gorgeous setting. And it’;s environmentally friendly. The house is kept warm by geothermal water. Pipes in the floor keeping it warm and comfortable year-round (additional heaters are available for extra cold days). The electricity comes from a close-by geothermal energy power-station, hot water comes from the a hot spring and the cold water is natural spring water from a well. It doesn’;t get better than this.

Yes, that’;s a hot tub. A monster hot tub. But could you imagine Iceland without one? The 2 pyramids keep the sleeping area and the social zones separate.
