The sound of the wind, chirping birds, rippling water – all these wonderfully soothing noises tickle gently in my ear when I close my eyes in the evening at the Glamping Chateau Ramsak. And they are still there when I start recovering the next day. Sound´s nice? It´s a paradise!
Green, green, green – Wineyard Glamping Chateau Ramsak
In the middle of the lush green: Glamping Chateau Ramsak
Two years after I have been to the wonderful Eco-Resort Garden Village Bled and were allowed to stay a few nights in the tree house, were my expectations of the 2016 opened Glamping-Resort in Maribor accordingly high. But one thing in advance: my expectations were even exceeded. Six luxurious Glamping tents (2 or 4 persons), a majestic tree house, wooden paths and bridges, a natural pond, the dreamy country castle – the Wineyard Glamping Chateau Ramsak in the lush green vineyards near Maribor in Slovenia is small, fine and without question a green holiday paradise, an elegant Slow-Life paradise. Because it combines almost everything I see right now: lots of fresh air to finally breathe again, uncomplicated atmosphere, an extra portion Slow Life and nature, nature, nature! More “GREEN”-style I couldn´t wish for.
Welcome to the Slowlife Paradise – Glamping Chateau Ramsak
My journey from Iceland via Copenhagen to Ljubljana and then to Maribor has deprived my already on reserve running batteries of the last power. The night on the plane my sleep. But for that I am now rewarded with a few days of paradise. Green. Lush meadows, forests, vineyards. In a beautifully elegant Glamping tent. With private jacuzzi. Calm. Feelings of happiness. Welcome to Paradise.
Fantastic, but pleasing not just a dream!
First official act: Lounger. To look around. Close your eyes. Inhale and arrive. Second official act: Open your eyes and realize that I am really here. Fantastic, but pleasing not just a dream. And then? Open the suitcase, bikini out and down into the quiet bubbling, wonderfully warm jacuzzi. The sun tickles gently on my shoulders. The cold white wine waits on the table. Pure relaxation.
This is how relaxation feels
And the dream is not over. This is followed by an invigorating power-nap in the lounger, a few pages in my book, which I could not finish for much too long. Gorgeous doing nothing, enjoy the sun, recharge your batteries. After just two hours, I am restored. Like New born. And full of action. Finally, the green oasis has yet to be explored. Excursions to the eco pond, the vineyards and finally to the city, because doing nothing makes surprisingly hungry. And quickly back again. Because the wonderful tent lures with its porch, the jacuzzi, the rest.
After a few hours I am like newborn
With a glass of wine on the terrace, a wonderful day comes to an end. To listen? Nothing. To see? The delicate glow of the countless lanterns that illuminate the wooden steps and my porch so romantically and are lit every evening by hand. And just before going to sleep, I discover, even at dusk, the deer that lived here for ages.
Eat and drink
Can one start a day better than with a full, veeeerry relaxed breakfast? You can. If it is on the wooden veranda of the own Glamping-tent with a view of the nature. And at the Chateau Ramsak every the day begins with a rich breakfast from the region – delivered to your own veranda. As a classic, vegetarian, vegan or gluten-free variant. For the rest of the meals, the resort recommends restaurants in the beautiful surroundings or the cultural city of Maribor, since the restaurant will be opened in 2018. And to the Slow Food, which will be available next year in the resort, there you also could enjoy one of the over 10,000 bottles from the fantastically sorted wine cellar in the cellar of the castle. Do not miss: A wine tasting with delicious white wines and the moving history of Chateau Ramsak!
