Built as an imposing grand, yet elegant, Alpine lodge gracing a fantastic hillside foothold, this famed retreat nowadays caters firmly towards the utterly modern urbanite and their sophisticated
little clan -is an insiders tip as a family affair whereby stylish grandma feels equally at home as do the digital grandkids.
Elements of the arts and crafts movement dance closely to commissioned pieces of the modern age, oversized sofas play host to an eclectic crowd, it is every bit a "Private House", but one where one feels at total ease.
Whilst the interiors could easily be the centre spread in some glossy, it is an urban country pad without the pretence, it is playful with lovely quirky corners that are focal points for pleasant distraction, a rest bite to take in the cinematic views across this truly enchanting landscape.
We just love the relaxed soul of the place, it has a warmth and sense of character that is hard to find, it is both eccentric yet familiar, stylishly actual and cosy – a cross generational hub that inspires, recharges and simply prompts unwinding, with
or without the family clan in tow.
