He continued: “Our lodges are so spacious with numerous bedrooms and bathrooms.

Casa di Lusso, meanwhile, is a “sanctuary inspired by French country cottages,” charming and traditional yet modern and stylish, perfect for lovers of vintage style, while Glass House is described as a “thoroughly modern lodge with a rustic feel”.
