European languages always seem to have more beautiful words to encapsulate slowness. The Danes have hygge (cosiness; a feeling of wellbeing), and here, tucked up in the Adelaide Hills just 30 minutes from Adelaide CBD, you can get acquainted with Ruhe, a German term translating to “peace and quiet when nothing around you bothers you and you feel calm and good”. Styled on a Swiss chalet design, this self-catering pavilion delivers all the ingredients for a slow stay – open wood fire, Japanese cedar hot tub, freestanding tub, and the option to order in a chef to prepare Dinner Under the Stars.
