In its origins, the ground floor was the old stable
The carriage was driving in through the big arched entrance, which has since been refurbished into a vast glass door that lets in lots of light. At the far end, where there was the ring to tie the horses, we have build a masonry stove. An efficient way to heat the place, with just one fire. It heats 24h and you can cook using the same heat 6-8h afterwards. One of the bedrooms closes with a beautifully carved, antique wooden sliding door.
