Beautiful space, amazing views
This home was the perfect base from
which to explore the Golden Circle and southern Iceland. <2 hours’ drive from almost everything on our agenda, and very close to Selfoss. We cooked dinner most nights in the well-appointed kitchen, and we all loved the hot tub and outdoor space. It was an ideal place to stay while traveling with young kids. We would love to come back and see the northern lights in winter!
Lovely private spot
Perfect location. There were six of us and we never felt crowded. Lots of space. We made good use of the outside grill several evenings. Thanks for the perfect holiday.
View is Amazing, very clean, comfortable beds/bedding and lots of room!
Awesome Place in the perfect location.
Spent the week at this amazing house with my family and friends. The place is perfect for a group with lots of room. Everything was very nice and clean inside very modern looking. The location of the house is great if you want to do the Golden circle and lots of other attractions close to the house and its only about 1hr from the city. The hot tub was a huge hit, there's also a little soccer field, but we couldn't find a soccer ball oh well. Highly recommend staying here.
Really lovely Villa and a Fantastic location
What a lovely place. The Villa is lovely and I think the beds are about the most comfortable we have ever slept in. The location is really well placed for seeing a lot of the waterfalls and glaciers, volcano craters and geysers in the south of Iceland. I can only say that Iceland is very wild, rugged and beautiful. Seeing the Norrhern Lights from the hot tub on our second night was a breathtaking experience. A really wonderful holiday. Thank you so much
This home was a great central base for all our explorations around Iceland. We shared the house with another couple and we both felt we had privacy but also lots of room to cook and spend time together in the central common area. We were able to see the aurora borealis from the yard and enjoyed the hot tub.
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.
