Staying in an historic manor house doesn’t just mean visiting a new destination – it’s also a little journey through time. These buildings are steeped in history, and the splendour of bygone eras lingers here in these noble mansions with their spacious parks and ornate gardens. Today, we would like to present a selection of estates, each with their own entirely unique style and atmosphere: three in Germany – in the states of Brandenburg, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern and Rhineland-Palatinate, respectively – one on the island of Mallorca, and another in northern Portugal. Some are magnificent and stately, others more modest and rural. Some offer a classic, traditional ambience, others have been thoroughly modernised. What they have in common is that they all boast a rich history and they all have their own fascinating stories to tell.
