Company information

South Central is a family business focusing on providing first class accommodations in the heart of the south region of Iceland. In addition to the Guesthouse at Blesastaðir we have the Country Apartment at the same place and South Central Apartments at Brautarholt located by the main road no 32. We started traveling young at age, and were fortunate enough to get to know different cultures and nature around the world. One of the most important things we came to realize was the importance of good accommodations and to have hosts willing to help and provide information on the local area. Therefore we want to maximize our guests experience while traveling by offering the best choice when it comes to accommodations and provide information which will make their travel unforgettable.

Property information

In wintertime the northern lights often visit us and we can let you know when they do.
