Having grown up in South Africa, we were accustomed to wide open spaces with ample opportunity for exploring Mother Nature and rejuvenating in restful surroundings. We relocated to the United Kingdom in 1993 and although we are very happy there, our hearts have always yearned for the peace and tranquillity of our homeland.
Well, as is often the case in life, surprises come from unexpected sources. Whilst consulting for a company based in Prague, Andrew headed out to the countryside one weekend for a bit of respite. There he discovered rolling hills and mystical forests in an area of breath-taking beauty. With each visit, he became more and more enamoured with the region and so decided to buy a property he could share with others.
As a Project Manager in the construction industry, Andrew embraced the opportunity to renovate a slightly run down house which had the potential to become something extraordinary. He wanted to create a space with the luxury of mod cons but far from the hustle and bustle of city life. And so began the adventure of a lifetime with his wife, Linda and their two children, Ashlea and Shannen.
Each season brought the thrill of new discoveries and even simple pleasures such as restaurant visits or forest walks were bursting with novelty. Curiosity might have killed the cat but there is nothing quite like trying something for the first time! Despite the house being a building project for a number of years, the family relished every trip, revelling in the time to connect and embrace the fresh experiences. After each visit, we left the house a little further on and our souls utterly re-energized by our time in Eden.
We have created so many wonderful memories in this magical part of the world. Now that the house is complete, we are delighted to invite you to share the experience. We look forward to welcoming you to Peace of Eden where you too can discover that the “best thing about memories is making them”.
