An Excellent Property!
This was an excellent property for two separate families with children (10 total people). The children (ages 6-14) enjoyed the outdoor play area with trampoline and soccer field, as well as exploring down by the stream. A short drive into Selfoss for groceries, dining, errands, etc. Conveniently located near Route 1. The hot tub was a plus, and so were the heated floors. My only complaint is that the laundry room is not as depicted in the picture. There is actually a washer/dryer combo that takes forever to cycle through and doesn't dry very well.
Quiet time with the family
Was a little tricky to find but once location established the house was a great home to stay in. Lovely spot and great positioning for many of the must sees. It was just such a shame the weather was not particularly kind to us as we couldn't enjoy the full potential of the out door living space. We had a real rest and was able to spend quality time there and relax. Thoroughly recommend the Villa - well appointed.
We were here for end of September and into first week of October. This property was in a great location to connect with the Golden Circle. The town of Selfoss was convenient and had a couple of grocery stores. This house has the best appointed kitchen I’ve ever experienced in a vrbo. Beds were so comfortable and having 2 bathrooms was a big plus. We enjoyed the grill and hot pot as well. We were lucky to experience the northern lights and I am sure the lack of other homes with lights helped.
We had everything we needed at this beautiful villa. It was clean and wonderfully equipped. The hot tub was clean and comfortable...very nice after a day of exploring. Excellent location if you're adventures are around the golden circle and southern Iceland.
Highly recommend this villa.
great house, great location for the golden circle
We were a party of 10 and truly enjoyed this house. The directions up to the gate were very helpful. We then got a little lost but Bergur was very helpful and we found the house easily after talking to him. The house and kitchen were well equipped and had everything we needed. The hot tub was great and so was the view.
This house was great for our family (five adults and 3 kids ages 4,4 and 2). It was true to the pictures, but even roomier than we expected with great outdoor space in a bucolic setting about an hour out of Reykjavik.. The kitchen was well-stocked and the grocery store was 15 minutes away in Selfoss. Convenient to volcanic hikes, waterfalls, elf houses, black sand beaches, lots of warm springs.
The house is located only 50 minutes drive from Reykjavik in a quiet area, with a small river few meters from the house and a panorama view. The house is close to the golden circle, Gullfoss, Geysir and the national park Tingvellir. 5 minutes from the house is a outdoor public swimming pool ( at Minni Borg) with jacuzzi and water slites and two good 18 holes golf courses. There is also a good nine hole golf course which you can play for free. ON the way to Minni Borg swimming pool you pass Kerid, a volcanic crater with lake in the Bottom. The closest village Selfoss is approx. 15 min. driving with all service needed. Eyjafjallajökull is one hour by car.
Berg house is close to Thingvellir, one of the most beautiful place in Iceland. In 2004 Thingvellir was officially added to UNESCO’s World Heritage List. Thingvellir is not only a natural shrine of outstanding natural beauty, but also a place with a history. Althingi (Parliament) was founded in Thingvellir in 930 and continued to assemble every summer until 1798. Althingi was to regulate common affairs of the country, pass common laws, and arbitrate the disputes between the local areas and decide judicially regarding killings and lawlessness. Prior to the formation of this Althingi each area of the country had its own local thing (governing general assembly) headed by the local godi, the chieftain.
For 868 years every summer, chieftains, farmers who owned land and ordinary men and women from all parts of Iceland left their homes and villages and headed towards Thingvellir for the annual fortnight long meeting which would start on the first Thursday in the eleventh week of each summer. For people coming from the east part of Iceland, the trip on horseback could take up to 17 days.
At Logrétta (Law Council) the Godar, the all powerful local chieftains and bishops gathered to debate and pass new laws and amend old ones. Then the Law-Speaker (lögsögumaður), the president of Lögrétta would stand on a nearby tall cliff, the Law Rock (Lögberg) in Almannagjá and recite the laws from memory. The high lava flank of the fissure behind him gave good accoustics which gave resonace to his voice. His words were recited by other speakers standing on farther cliffs to reach the entire audience.
