danish hygge lifestyle

The incredible Nimb Palace in the Tivoli garden in Copenhagen is a worthy representative of danish hygge spirit !

So what is Hygge?

A cultural experience, a state of mind, a feeling of well-being …. According to Danish translator ToveMaren Stakkestad, “Hygge was never meant to be translated. It was meant to be felt.”

The trendy Danish word that’s so impossible to translate - pronounced “hoo-guh” -  has recently found its place in the Oxford English dictionary: 

Hygge, n.

[mass noun] a quality of cosiness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being (regarded as a defining characteristic of Danish culture)

From November until spring, our lush patio is transformed into an idyllic shelter: peaceful and bright during the day, it offers a unique setting for lunches or meetings. In the evening, enjoy a drink or dine under the stars.
