Perfect family accommodation

  • 5 of 5

There were eight of us, including grandchildren, and the property was ideally suited for our needs. It is spacious and comfortable, with underfloor heating and wonderful views through the fully glazed west 'wall'. The kitchen is fully equipped, there were plenty of 'basics' in the food cupboard, and an excellent gas fired barbecue. There is a football area for the children and the hot tub is perfectly located for watching the stars and northern lights.

The owners were very helpful - even coming over to show us how to use the smart TV!

A perfect location for a perfect stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Iceland and the home was perfect! We arrived early morning and walked into a clean and warm house. Heated floors, picturesque view, well kept furnishings and large rooms to settle in to. The home was centrally located to all the tourist hot spots including the famous Thingviller National Park, Stokkur Geysir and Kreio (volcanic crater). It was peaceful, quiet and only 20 mins from Selfoss and 45 mins from Reykjavik. Thank you so much for letting us stay in your home! I recommend that you stay in this home and explore all that Iceland had to offer. John (Niagara Falls, CDN)

Amazingly Beautiful Property and view

  • 5 of 5

There were four of us and the accommodations were spacious enough for all. The owners were responsive and informative. We spent nights in the hot tub enjoying the northern lights. The home had everything you would need for a comfortable stay. The beauty of the area is amazing. We would definitely stay again.

fantastic accomodation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Iceland helped by this lovely property. Eating and drinking out is expensive in Iceland; well you don't have to with this property. It has a large table which comfortably sat 8 of us ( and it could extend further if req'd ). From the table, you have wonderful views of the surrounding countryside. the kitchen is excellent, and there is a larder cupboard, which is already stocked with essentials, such as condiments, oils, spices etc and much more. The house is also in a great location for exploring the Golden Circle, with the Kerid volcano crater being only about 10 minutes away. The hot tub was great, with plenty of room for 8. We didn't get to see the northern lights though properly unfortunately.

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.
