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!
