Zum Egle 1336

Concrete and the Middle Ages! Zum Egle 1336 is a B&B with two rooms in the historic old town of Constance. Opening up instead of covering up was the maxim of the building’s renovation. Traces of the past were meticulously uncovered and put on display. For example, the raw walls of the two guest rooms show remains of old floral wallpaper and medieval murals with images of saints and banners.

Region/Town: DE – Germany, Baden-Württemberg, Constance at the Lake Constance

Scenery: In the historic centre, just 300 m from Lake Constance

Das Schnitterhaus

In Groß Sperrenwalde in the Uckermark region, timber construction professor Tim Göckel and garden architect Marc-Rajan Köppler have created an extraordinary three-hectare garden world on the site of a former nursery: with meadows and woodland, orchards and an apple tree avenue, lush perennial plantings and hedges cut in cloud shape. The former day labourers’ house from the 1920s, situated next to the landscape park, has been rebuilt and converted into a holiday home for six people.

Castellaccio Suite

The Castellaccio Suite is a hideaway for two with a fantastic view over the Umbrian hills, all the way to Lake Trasimeno. It is situated at 600 metres above sea level near the village of Piegaro on the border with Tuscany. Cocooning was the keyword for the property’s Belgian owners when they began planning the house: they wanted to create a retreat for two people that would be truly surrounded by nature. 

Region/Town: IT – Italy, Umbria, Piegaro

Scenery: Hill top, with a fantastic view all the way to Lake Trasimeno

Sieseby-Loft

Sieseby Loft is nestled in the property of a former farmhouse on the outskirts of the village of Sieseby on the Schlei inlet of Germany’s Baltic Sea coast. The loft is integrated into an old barn, but stands out with its façade of black larch wood planks. Large windows – up to eight metres high on the garden side – bring plenty of light into the rooms and offer views of the park-like garden property. Floorboards and wooden ceilings, exciting lines of sight, works of art, and a calming colour scheme define the ambience.
