We find our holiday home charming and comfortable, love the views on bright summer nights and the northern lights during winter. It is in a private, gated, secluded area and from it you will enjoy both mountain and river views. The property covers about one hectare.
It includes a living room with high ceilings, two bedrooms and a spacious sleeping loft. There is a full kitchen, with a gas stove, and outdoor BBQ facilities.
The house features multiple terraces, sauna and a geothermal hot tub with spectacular views. It is just 40 minutes drive from Reykjavik and 10 minutes from Iceland´s national park, Thingvellir and is located on the Golden Circle Route.
Popular area activities include golf, hiking, fishing and swimming. Nearby town of Selfoss offers many services, such as supermarkets, bakeries, restaurants and coffee houses.
