holiday in monk's hermit cottage

Holiday in a former monk's hermit cottage - an authentic experience in unique historical surroundings. Pure relaxation and time for yourself.

Where once - from 1461 to 1848 - the Carthusian monks lived as hermits, we offer this unique holiday experience. A week/7 nights holiday "as it was then" in a former monk's hermit cottage - with the comfort and rich breakfast of today. In the gently renovated and simply furnished cottage (left on the picture), monastic life can be felt and experienced up close. The conscious reduction of the interior reminds of the lonely, quiet life of the Carthusian monks and creates the true luxury of tranquillity and retreat. A small garden in front of the hermitage invites you to linger.
