The Perfect Place to Relax

5 of 5
A very beautiful and well-maintained farmhouse in a stunning location. It combines the best of old and new with simple elegant modern interior, with just enough touches to make it seem personal. The massive sauna room is bound to be a favourite winter or summer. The views from the kitchen will make everyone volunteer to cook. We came for a family wedding in June. There is also a wonderful glass reading writing room which would inspire anyone. The weather was perfect, the location kept everyone calm and relaxed and made the whole wedding experience a week we will never forget. Vjera and Patrick were charming and helpful without being invasive. Highly recommended!
