Ruth, Denmark

“The superb location. Classy. The style of the renovated old farmhouse, made so eloquent by the owners. Just everything there is done with care and respect for the environment. The home made rhubarb and blueberry jam, and the bread made in the house. The eagles that show up, all of a sudden from the fjord.”
