Berjaholt is a unique period cottage situated in a rural area of amazing landscape and views.The house sits on flat land facing mountain Ingolfsfjall and you also have mountain Burfell by our doorstep wich is great for hiking and enjoying the great all around view.
.A beautiful creek passes by the house wich gives kids the chance wade and catch small fish .
We also have a monkey swing , huge trampoline, and other fun games.
There´s an open air pool ,gym & sauna at Borg, as well as a small grocery shop/gas station.(9 km. )
The nearest town is Selfoss at 18 km. distance.There you'll find bigger grocery shops,bakery, several restaurants , ATM/ bank,health care center + a big pool .
You will feel right at home in our cosy cottage - it has a really relaxing atmosphere. We have a lot of booklets/infos for things to see ,as well as interesting books ,music and dvd's.
The major sight seeing spots is close by ; only 30 min.. to Thingvellir national park ,and 40 min. to Geysir and Gulfoss.
Further east you have easy access to amazing places like Seljalandsfoss ( waterfall ) ,Skógar/Skógafoss , Kirkjubæjarklaustur, Jokulsarlon (glacier lagoon ), and Landmannalaugar .Reykjavik with all it's great restaurants and shops is just an hour away.
At Berjaholt we found an oasis of overwhelming beauty.We loved every minute of it and didn't want to leave. The wonderful details of how you have decorated the cottage make for a vey cozy home away from home.
Your music selection is exquisite and the shelves are stocked with wonderful books.
We love the landscape , and bathing in the hot springs in Hveragerdi was one of the highlights of our stay.
We were also quite taken by the sound of your language,and we found a poem by Bill Holm that captures this beautifully. We hope to come back another year to explore more of your beautiful country.
Lenny and Scott
" In an air conditioned room you cannot understand the grammar of this language.
The wiffing machine drowns out the soft vowels.
But you can hear these vowels in the mountain wind, and in the heavy seas breaking over the hull of a small boat.
Old ladies can wind their long hair in this language.
And can hum ,and knit, and make pancakes.
But you cannot have a coctail party in this language
.And say witty things standing up with a drink in your hand
You must sit down to speak this language. It is so heavy that you can't be polite or chatter in it.
For once you have begun a sentence , the whole course of your life is laid out before you " .
