This is no ordinary house thanks to owner Madeleine. The specially designed Swedish Gustavian style interiors are dotted with unusual and beautiful antiques and clocks, both French and Swedish. The atmosphere is quiet and serene, colours whites and greys in lime wash and linens; anyone who appreciates beauty will be happy here. You’re surrounded by fecund gardens with mature trees including magnolia, sweet maple, acacia and chestnut; nothing to disturb you but sweet birdsong. Sleep peacefully (the private suite even has its own courtyards), wake to breakfast on the veranda, stroll the grounds to discover very rare Skudde sheep.
