At the Slow Trips Experience “Blossom Time is wreath making time” Sylvia invites her guests into a world for dreaming. At the estate of the family de Buigne, surrounded by meadows and forests, you are able to escape the stresses of everyday life and to go on a journey of sensual pleasures in the picturesque Nature Park Pöllau Valley.

Besides the wreath making experience you also have the chance to spend 4 nights in one of the three well-preserved holiday homes of the family de Buigne where you can enjoy a wonderful panoramic view over the Nature Park Pöllau Valley. These East Styrian “Troadkästen” (granaries) are over 300 years old. The pleasant smell of the wood, the tiled stove, the larch wood floors from the family’s forest and the many little details of the décor ensure a unique holiday experience. The family de Buigne is dedicated to preserving the region Nature Park Pöllau Valley as well as their living environment. The parlor in the house is from 1713. With much love objects from the past that have almost lost their value are restored and preserved.

After a short, guided tour on the estate of the family de Buigne you will stroll with Sylvia over meadows and through woods of the Nature Park Pöllau Valley. Sylvia will tell you stories and anecdotes about the regional cultural properties. After you have found your preferred materials like cones, acorns, crust fungi, flowers or lichens for your individual wreath, you go back to the garden of the holiday homes. Sylvia will show you different ways of making wreaths and reliable methods that ensure that your individual wreath project will be a success. Chat with her about times gone by while enjoying homemade juices and cakes.
