Wellness at home? The garden is the place to be ...

wellness in the garden

Nothing beats winding down in the comfort of your own home. Yes, spending a day at the spa can be heavenly, but deep down we all dream of kicking back in our very own hot tub or sauna. Preferably one that is located in our own little green sanctuary, of course. Because there’s nothing quite like relaxing and enjoying that blissful Zen feeling of wellness in your garden.

Relaxing Finnish style: a sauna in the garden

A sauna in the garden may sound like a crazy idea, but in Finland it's the most normal thing in the world. Did you know that Finland – home of the sauna tradition – counts more than three million saunas, while there are only five million Finns? Many of these saunas are located in private homes, often in gardens. Which isn’t all too surprising, really, because like a Jacuzzi, a sauna in a garden shed or outbuilding sure has its benefits:


  • The green surroundings, located far away from household chores and everyday problems, make you automatically relax.
  • It is very healthy to let your body cool off after fifteen minutes in the sauna or Jacuzzi. Enjoy the fresh air or take a quick dip in the pool. The transition from very hot to very cold is not only an invigorating sensation, it also helps your body fight colds. And after a few minutes you simply pop back in!
  • There’s no need for major renovation works for you to enjoy your private spa all year round.


Warm winter blessings …

Wellness at home is pure bliss every day of the year, but the winter season is when you will really count your blessings for having your own spa at home. Imagine enjoying …

  • … a private sauna in your garden.
  • … your own Jacuzzi or hot tub under the canopy or patio cover, so no rain or snow can ruin your precious me-time. And if you combine a Camargue louvered canopy with gorgeous Loggia sliding panels, you don’t have to worry about nosy neighbours looking in either.
  • ... unwinding after the sauna or hot tub in a garden pavilion with integrated heating elements.
