Retreat - this is the new one, which is at the same time well forgotten by the old. If there is an urgent need to rest from the rhythm of the life of a big city, then many are going on distant hikes - in the forest or mountains. But even more people refuse such a, undoubtedly useful for body and spirit, a temporary renunciation of civilization, since they can no longer do without the comforts that it gives. They are frightened by mosquitoes, cold and the need to carry a heavy backpack with equipment for the night.
To avoid these inconveniences, retreat routes have been created — in the forest or mountains. They allow you to combine leisure and comfort, because the route is designed so that the team could spend the night in a comfortable house with all the amenities.
You can also take a retreat for a while - a week or a month and live this time completely alone with yourself.
For mountainous terrain, stone and concrete retreats are ideally designed to fit into the surrounding landscape as much as possible. It uses a blend of rustic comfort and practicality of modern stylistic solutions.
