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.
Fantastic home in a beautiful location!
We had a wonderful stay. The house is fully equipped with everything you need. The location is secluded but close to everything. Easy access to the Golden circle. Bergur was easily available when we had questions- Very friendly and helpful. We saw the auroras right from the backyard! Which were amazing! Be sure to turn all the lights off. Such a lovely place. We would go back and stay here in a minute! Actually.... I wish I was there right now.
Stunning views from the picture windows!
We just got back from a week in this house. We were 2 couples so had plenty of room with a bedroom and bathroom 'wing' each. Beds are really comfy - haven't slept so deeply in ages! The central hub is large and well laid out - a kitchen, dining and living area. The view from the picture windows is stunning and constantly changing with the light and weather. Whilst it's located in what seems to be an enclave of holiday homes - there is plenty of space between properties and in February most were empty. The house is warm and cosy with underfloor heating and a traditional hot tub (it's not a 'jacuzzi' style) was toasty at 41 degrees - even in the snow! Location is great for easy access to the Golden Circle highlights (Gullfoss, Guyser, Thingvellir, Kerid volcano) It's approx an hours drive from Reykjavik town, add an extra 40 minutes to Keflavik international airport. A 4x4 is essential in winter as are studded tyres. It's also a 1.5 hour drive to Vik, in good weather, passing Skogafoss etc waterfalls. Selfoss is about 10 - 15 minutes away with plenty of shops, supermarkets, Vinbudin (Government run off-licence) and eateries. (If you do want alcohol stock up in duty free - it's expensive - but we had to try some Brennivin - aka 'Black Death') Most of the above sights don't have entry charges and parking costs a small fee - usually 300 to 400 ISK.
Iceland is a truly stunning country - you won't be disappointed! The Icelanders are very friendly and helpful. The weather is constantly changing and it's REALLY windy - so take plenty of layers and be prepared to change plans according to the weather. In winter - you need to be a confident driver - the combination of wind and snow can be challenging. We had to wait for the snowplough to clear the road to the house on arrival - but it was all part of the fun and the Icelandic experience. We are already making plans to come back!
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.
