The Atelier is the former farmhouse from about 1830 and has a size of 60m2. It is now part of a modernised old farm situated at the old moor land settlement Sjelborg. The cottage is situated close to the northern part of the Wadden Sea at the bay of “Ho” which has a good bathing beach.
The cottage appears rustic and many old details and features have been kept giving the interior a very special experience of light and shade. Some years ago the Atelier was used as a studio by an artist. The furnishing is kept in a simple and rustic manner.
The cottage is placed in the middle of a 6.000 m2 big plot surrounded by a prolific garden, wild nature and an old orchard.
Below the terrace runs a little stream of murmuring, chilly spring water. When the sun goes down over the bay of Ho in an inferno of red and orange nothing is more relaxing than sitting on the terrace with a chilly glass of “Viño Verde” deeply absorbed in the sound of nature.
