THE STORY


In summer 2013 my mum and her husband went on vacation, in East Frisia, North Germany. Their intention was not only to explore the green paradise, windmills and endlessness, but also to spot houses, where they could potentially settle down one day.

Only 6 months later, they moved up to a house that would change our lives. In the age of 50 years, they took their brave heart and went for a tremendous change.

The past decades we always have lived in apartments with a balcony. Now we have to take care of an area of 20.000m².

After two years of travelling I did short stop-over in Germany, where I met the magical place for the first time. This was in Spring 2014. I never have been in East Frisia before, which made me so super curios for whats going to await me there.

As soon as I put my feet on the ground, I knew this place is meant to be for something greater, than only cutting gras and planting flowerseeds. And the greatest thing is, that my family shares that opinion. YES!

This short pit stop overwhelmed me and put me in a big bubble of dreams and opportunities. I moved on to Portugal, where I started to work in a beautiful Yoga & Surf Retreat for the next 2,5 years.

During this incredible time, where I met so many inspiring people, where I made longlasting friendships and where I have made transformational experiences, the idea of The House of Essence grew.

At the end of 2016 the family project was born.
