A peaceful weekend away – doesn’t that sound like heaven? Sleep late, eat good food (and lots of it), drink wine, relax… who wouldn’t jump at the chance to spoil themselves like this a little?
First question, then: where to would you go to recharge those batteries? The beach? A rural cottage? How does a charming country house nestled in-between majestic mountains and a stretched-out landscape sound?
But to aid you in your daydreams, let’s take a look at some photos to really get our relaxation (and envy) levels soaring…
We kick off with a view of the spot where we’ll be spending the majority of the weekend – the porch. Conveniently shaded, it is decked out in clean neutrals and a decadent dose of lush plants to ensure that fresh scents accompany our relaxation.
Time to see what the entire package looks like.
Viewing the house from a distance, we are delighted to see that it flaunts a very stately build. A double-floor height, curved roof shingles, warm timber surfaces… doesn’t this look just scream ‘wine tasting’ to you?
We locate the back of the house, which has a much more opened-up side than the front facade. Lots of glass panes ensure that the surrounding scenery is enjoyed to the fullest, and that a splendid dose of sunshine enters the interiors.

But don’t think that this weekend getaway spot is all about beauty from afar – when viewing the house up close, we can see stunning details, such as the charming timber (leftover pieces from a demolition project) adorning elements such as doors. And just notice how exquisite the honey-toned wood plays together with those gorgeous sea-blue colours.
On the inside, a large open-plan joins together select areas, such as the kitchen, dining room, and living room – the social area of the house.
The main star of the interior show is undoubtedly wood, visible on both floor and ceiling, as well as select furniture and décor pieces.
How beautifully lit is this open-plan living room? A gorgeous dose of sunshine streams in through the windows, making that red-wine couch radiate with style, and the snow-white walls gleam with ambience.
And similar to the porch we discovered earlier, a firm helping of potted plants and flowers can be found in the interior spaces too, ensuring a bit of freshness, colour, and cheer.

An open-riser staircase with a spine, decked out in caramel-coloured wood, connects the two floors. And to be smart about space-saving, the area underneath the stairs serves as a displaying spot for some of the house’s decorative objects.
So, what do you think? Will this house do for a weekend away? Is it up to your relaxation and style standard?
