A warm welcome from Karin who has sprinkled her artistic flare everywhere, from the gardens to the rooms. "It's about striking a balance, a sense of calm," says Karin.
"Everything we use on the grounds to the rooms is eco-friendly. And that also flows through to our guests. We learn from the people who stay here and we hope people take something away from us too."
And that balance that Karin talks about washes over you, the warm hug, the individually designed rooms, the views of the village. It's a melting pot of calm, even with a ten month old baby in tow.
The overwhelming feeling like you were visiting old friends. As we were shown to our rooms we both felt like we had stepped into a romantic movie, the gardens were in full bloom still, the dogs lazing over.
A holiday so special - the entire experience left us feeling inspired to travel more eco-friendly, to source food more wisely and most importantly to know that no holiday is off limits.
