Property description

The summerhouse was built in 2005 and is 78 square metres. It has two bedrooms, kitchen, bathroom and a living room. The master bedroom has a queen-sized bed. The second bedroom has a double bed and single bed. The kitchen is equipped with all the necessary tools and in the living room there is a big sofa and two reclining chairs. The bathroom has a shower with overhead and side-spraying shower heads easily set to the user's preference.

The house is encircled by a wide terrace from where you can watch the sunset while BBQing. Relax on a deck chair or unwind in the six-person jacuzzi!

Around the house there is a big lawn. But you should not let the fence limit you; take a walk straight from the house up the mountain Búrfell.

The summerhouse is situated under the mountain Búrfell, overlooking Sogn River and Lake Úlfljótsvatn. The surroundings provide peace and tranquillity, while a nice walk up Búrfell will provide you with a spectacular view of the area. You will see the National Park of Þingvellir (Thingvellir) where the Vikings set their parliament in 930. It's only 20 minutes to drive there from the summerhouse. Other places of interest are Lake Laugarvatn (25 minutes), Geysir (geothermal area with geyser, 45 minutes), Gullfoss (Iceland's finest waterfall, 50 minutes) -- all part of Iceland's famous Golden Circle travel route. Outdoor public swimming pools with jacuzzi and water slides can be found in Minni-Borg (15 minutes), Selfoss (15 minutes), and Laugarvatn (25 minutes). On the way to Minni-Borg you pass Kerið, a volcanic crater with a lake in the bottom. The legend says that when the water sinks in Kerið, it rises in the lake on top of Búrfell. Reykjavík and Eyjafjallajökull are one hour by car.
