You could say that Manowce, a supremely photogenic palace located in Poland that dates back to the early 1900s, occupies the perfect remote location.
Not only is the ornate building set on the shore of an idyllic bay next to the Baltic Sea, it's also surrounded by vast, enchanting woodland that's teeming with wildlife. Not to mention the captivating gardens, with its sparkling fountain and dense parkland.
Put simply, Manowce represents the ultimate in luxury celebration breaks for you and your favourite people, so that everybody can sit back and relax in perfect comfort.
Styled in a wondrous mix of old and new, you'll discover many fascinating antiques as you wander around your new holiday home. Yet with Wi-Fi access, high-end facilities, and contemporary furniture, you'll also enjoy plenty of modern-day luxury.
Bedroom-wise, you'll have three opulent suites to choose from, and a further 13 double bedrooms... with the potential to accommodate up to 42 guests.
Be sure to claim the sumptuous, spacious Master Suite for yourself, and enjoy morning coffee on your stunning garden-view terrace. The second floor is home to a selection of stylish, ensuite Palace bedrooms that feature indulgent touches such as antique wardrobes. Meanwhile, the seven first-floor Annex rooms are delightfully rustic, in honour of their former lives as part of a stable.
Whichever room or suite you choose, you can relax to soothing bay or garden views, private ensuite facilities, and a large TV to watch with your favourite tipple. Some of the rooms can also accommodate extra guests, on squishy sofa beds.
Sleeping spaces taken care of, it's time to explore all the beauty of your surroundings!
If you'd rather not travel too far, you certainly don't have to - how about simply grabbing a book and a beach towel, and lazing on the bay's private shore? You can borrow a kayak if you prefer watery thrill-seeking, or just grab a bike and cycle through the woodland.
(Oh, and the palace's bio sauna is also available for you to use, free of charge!)
Further afield, you can head out to the open water of the Baltic - perfect for sailing - or take your pick from six eighteen-hole golf courses nearby... three in Poland, and three across the border in Germany. Activities such as horse riding can also be arranged for you.
With so much to see and do, you can go your separate ways during the day, indulging all your personal holiday wishes. Just don't forget to congregate all together by evening, as you relax in those wonderful gardens with a glass of bubbles, sharing stories as the sun sinks over the bay.
