Schloss Prossen

Schloss Prossen (Prossen Castle) is a holiday residence in a former manor house in Saxon Switzerland—situated only 300 metres from the river Elbe and close to the spa town of Bad Schandau.

Haus Wanderlust

Wild and romantic nature surrounds the Wanderlust holiday home in secluded Treseburg, a dreamy village at the entrance to the Bode Gorge in the Harz Mountains. This historic half-timbered house has been elaborately renovated and converted into three holiday apartments. The special thing about this place? Two apartments have been planned in such a way that they can be flexibly occupied by different numbers of guests – and can also be booked together.

Friesensteern

A green, wide landscape, above it a blue sky streaked with clouds driven by the wind – this is the setting for Haus Friesensteern on Eiderstedt, Schleswig-Holstein. This historic Haubarg farmhouse dating to the 17th century is situated on a terp at the heart of the peninsula. In Haus Friesensteern, two rooms completely furnished in historic Delft tiles display this one-time wealth. The original, richly decorated alcoves are also quite special…

Maison Bergdorf

A wildly romantic, park-like garden surrounds the Maison Bergdorf in the Swiss town of Interlaken in the Bernese Oberland. The villa was built in 1897 as a holiday home for a Canadian entrepreneur in the traditional chalet style. The owners, Stéphane Houlmann and Mirko Beetschen, have completely renovated the house and have added their own flair to the rooms through an interior design that skilfully plays with colours, shapes and materials.

Region/Town: CH – Switzerland, Bernese Oberland, Interlaken

Scenery: Surrounded by a park-like, romantic garden with breathtaking views of the Jungfrau and the local mountain Harder.

Accommodation: House, B&B

Wasserturm Pirach

Wasserturm Pirach is a landmark in the foothills of the Bavarian Alps between the Lake Chiemsee and the Waginger Lake. With a height of almost 30 metres, the water tower presides over the houses of the hamlet of Pirach. Its façade of silver-coloured sheet steel panels, which protects this 1950s-built structure from the elements, makes for a striking visual impact.

Region/Town: DE – Germany, Bavaria, Pirach in the Chiemgau

Scenery: In the heart of a little hamlet with views over the Alpine peaks

Türalihus

The Türalihus is part of a historic ensemble of buildings in the centre of Valendas, Switzerland. This small mountain village on the banks of the Rhine in the Safien Valley is known for its stately town houses. First built in 1485, the Türalihus has been extended multiple times over the centuries – with annexes, additional levels, and the stairwell from which the house derives its name. The house stood empty from 1941 until 2007, when the Swiss “Vacations in a Listed Building” Foundation acquired it from the son of the well-known Swiss architect Rudolf Olgiati and transformed it into the holiday home it is today.

La Tour Sarrazine

La Tour Sarrazine in the village of Montaren near the southern French renaissance town of Uzès is a medieval tower dating to the 12th century. The building was restored over the course of five years and transformed into a unique B&B, in which combining authenticity and comfort was of the highest priority. New elements are clearly recognisable as such, but have been designed in a neutral mode that doesn’t steal the limelight from the historic building itself.

Scenery: In the small village of Montaren in southern France
