a little bird told me that deep in the norwegian forest near the fjords in the west coast hides a true gem: the juvet landscape hotel.

the eye is drawn away from the ten minimalist, sparsely decorated huts and to the dramatic glass walls opening onto beautiful wooded scenery complete with a meandering river.

the installations include a spa, and common and dining areas in an old, tastefully restored farm house, and the all-encompassing company of nature in this secluded, privileged spot.

it reminded me slightly of the famed vw ad
