Feel a part of nature again
Our Philosophy is simple. We wanted to create a place where people could feel a part of nature again. To create a place where one can escape from the crammed footpaths, stuffy elevators, congested traffic, lifeless concrete and noise of city life. For all, a place where one can simply be surrounded by natural beauty.
All aspects in the creation of Piermont Retreat, from choosing the property, to the planning, design and construction of each cottage, have revolved around the objective of keeping ecology, health and comfort in mind. As a result, we are able to invite you to a very different, pristine and luxurious retreat experience.
Architecturally designed, each cottage has been built bio-sustainably, without the use of synthetics or chemicals. Through the use of all natural materials in every cottage, and carefully researched positioning, the cottages blend perfectly with the magnificent surrounds.
Each cottage's outlook of the continually changing scene of the sea, combined with the facilities available and the historical Piermont homestead, sets Piermont in a class of its own.
How have we achieved this?
The property of 240ha consists of an elongated stretch along the shoreline. It is bordered on one side by a creek and is surrounded by stunning natural beauty.
A natural mould in the landscape lent itself for the construction of an amphitheatre that is sometimes used for entertainment but otherwise serves as a beautiful landmark. The cottages are scattered around the amphitheatre, leaving the bigger part of the property for wandering guests and wildlife.
The cottages are located on neutral magnetic earth fields to maximize rest.
Each cottage is built from natural materials: such as solid stone walls, timber floors, sheep wool insulation and slate roofing.
Natural sealant on timber floors and benches were chosen to avoid toxin emissions.
The walls are lime-washed rather than painted with oil or acrylic-based paint.
During construction, the utmost care was taken to minimize impact on the environment.
The Piermont Promise
A special place, A special feeling. We promise excellence and simplicity in a setting of great natural beauty.
Each cottage built bio-sustainable, with quality fittings and wood fires, each with a neutral magnetic field to guarantee restful sleep, the well spring for the feeling of personal renewal that guests say is our signature.
