We spent 3 days in the beautiful region of Borgarnes. Francois and all his family have been so kind and generous of their time. Our kids had the chance to feed the sheeps and horsehide. The house is well equipped and grocery store not far away (10min by car). The Borgarnes municipal pool is a must if you have kids (waterslides) and do enjoy hot tub ! Make sure to get prior information from Francois before getting there since we search a bit with the address from the airbnb site. Thank you again Francois and family !

The place is really clean and cozy. The owners are really nice and they welcomed us with warm bread.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. It was nice to be out in the country and the directions they provided were easy to follow and very clear. The warm bread upon our arrival was a delightful treat. Once I wrapped my head around all the flies that go with being on a farm, everything was terrific! Spacious accommodations and and well appointed kitchen that met our every need. The beds were very comfortable and we particularly appreciated the use of a washer and dryer.

We arrived and were greeted warmly by Fjola and Francois. Fjola showed us around the apartment, answered all our questions and gave suggestions on what to do and see in the area. They have many brochures and maps in the apartment. The apartment is huge and has plenty of space and all the amenities anyone will need. Well equipped kitchen, laundry, and everything was spotless. Every review mentions the homemade bread Francois makes for you so I will just mention it was fantastic and made for such a personal touch! Aside from the fantastic apartment is their absolutely stunning view and wonderful farm. We also can't say enough good things about the family themselves. They took our son in like he was one of their own! He made fast friends with one of their sons and were pretty much inseparable the whole stay. We met amazing animals, went on long walks with the three best dogs we've ever met and explored the area. Their two boys were fun tour guides and we walked around the rocks and beaches and area with them for hours. Francois and Fjola gave us a lot of information about the area and it was all fascinating! The town of Borganes is very close and has two grocery stores and the best bakery in Iceland! We ate at the Settlement Centre, the fish is fantastic! We will be back in Iceland and will book this apartment again because it will feel like we are coming back to visit family!

We were so lucky to find Francois's place to stay to accommodate my friends and me (8 people in total) last minutes due to the Road 1 construction and we need to change all our pre-planed itinerary. Francois is very kind and hospitality, especially his quick response to my questions through AirBnB communication make us feel more comfortable about our AirBnB choice even before we arrived the house. Francois' place location is excellent as well, it’s a pity that the weather is not good for all of us to take a walk before check-out.
