Unique and incredible hidden escapes, just waiting to be enjoyed.
For every long work day, for every achievement, for every fiasco, for every sad moment, for every happy occasion, or simply, for every day... a beautiful escape can arrive just in time, and become the perfect rescue, backdrop, setting, and comfort. Your very own piece of heaven—to escape from the rest of the world and all of its demands—to share with those you love, or alternatively, to keep as your private, special space to relax in and enjoy. Aren't these incredible? The first one, a courtyard, embracing you with stone and ivy... the second, narrow and tranquil streams and uneven, meandering pathways... leading to the third, an open and fun eating area—ideal for lively dinner parties... I can just imagine candles, lanterns, and music for a fun evening dinner... and ending with the fourth, an incredible tunnel and pond that is so beautiful, it's nearly unbelievable.
As a child, I recall an entire forest area behind my neighbours home, almost like a jungle—we used to spend Summer days running around, picking flowers, building miniature homes and gardens there. It was so much fun. Oh, to be so free... Do you have a little hidden escape? It could be at your home, or a place that you go to for the same escape.
