                                                My family very much enjoyed our stay at the villa, which was well equipped and spacious. Everything we needed was supplied at the property. The owners were very helpful providing a camp bed for my son in the study creating a fourth bedroom. They also bought a new toaster specially for us. One minor point I would make is that the curtains could have been thicker. At the time we visited - near midsummer and a period of sunny weather - it was light all the time, and it was quite difficult to sleep in broad daylight. The local swimming pool was excellent and represented very good value for money. Otherwise not a lot to do in Selfoss itself but the villa is in a good location for trips to Reykjavik and the Golden Circle sights, although a car is essential.

                                                Recommended for: Sightseeing, families with young children.

                                              Owner info

                                              Year Purchased: 1997

                                              About the owner: We are both natives of Iceland. Thorsteinn Hauksson is composer of modern/classical music and also specialist in electro acoustic music, studied at Stanford University. Steinunn Sigurðardóttir graduated from University College Dublin. She has a long standing career as novelist and is frequently translated. She is also a journalist, who has worked mainly for radio and TV. We now reside in Berlin, after 7 years in France. Thoristun remains a favourite place of ours, and we love to stay if the villa is vacant during the low season. It is an ideal place for northern light watching, from late August onward.

                                              Why the Owner Chose Selfoss:
                                              We bought the architectural pearl of Thoristun 19 in1997. Every year we make improvements and renovations. For instance, all the sleeping rooms are recently renovated, with new luxury beds.

                                              The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                                              Space, privacy, elegant proportions, comfort, good taste, the original art on the walls. Proximity to best known tourist attractions in Iceland, such as Geysir, spectacular ancient Parliament site Thingvellir, the black sand of the Northern Atlantic, and short walking distance to gourmet restaurants and all services.
