Modern life is full of distractions that simply did not exist 30 years ago. If you want to get away from everything these days you will have to put down your phone, leave your house and go for a long walk out in the countryside.
Thats were these beautifully secluded hideaways come into play. They might not be mansions and palaces fit for a king, queen or a-list celebrity but they offer something that no other home can. Complete peace and isolation.

Le Tronc Creux
Located in France and designed by Bruit Du Frigo this log shaped hut can actually sleep up to nine people. Looks can be deceiving.

Designed by Uufie in Canada this cottage is surrounded by the Ontario forest. Thanks to the clever use of mirrors the building reflects the surrounding trees creating a truly magical effect.
