In the spacious country house, which used to be inhabited by priests and farmers, the oldest features date back to 1196 - a stone marked with the year, a pentagram and a Maltese cross. A small chapel in the name of St. Ambrose was built at this point in the previous centuries, together with living quarters and stables. The surrounding lands were cultivated. The buildings, abandoned since 1960, were completely restored from the early 1990s to the beginning of 2000. Care was taken to use old materials as much as possible in order to preserve the charm and history of the building. However, great importance was attached to the fact that the technical equipment, including lighting, electrical wiring, water supply and disposal corresponds to the latest technical standards. The result is a wonderful refuge - usable for holidays, as a permanent residence for a large family or for renting out.
