Can you imagine yourself escaping in a serene and remote retreat without TV, Wi-Fi or cell phone service? Well, that’s sounds like heaven to me! I think we all deserve to spend at least 1 or 2 weeks away form the stressful digital world. Instead of hi-tech gadgets we could enjoy a pure rest and relaxation in the middle of beautiful nature, peace and tranquility. Fortunately, someone has already thought of that… Flavia Kampf Spahr and Sina Murphy Chan are two gorgeous and talented ladies who have just launched OFF GRID HIDEAWAYS, world’s first exclusive online rental platform, specializing in remote holiday homes and slow travel.
If you need a true escape from your digital life, you should check out their handpicked collection of Digital Detox escapes! You’ll be happy to find amazing hideaways in some of the world’s most beautiful and isolated locations, from reclaimed fishing huts in ecologically significant nature reserves to contemporary mountain cabins in vast national parks.
Each property is chosen for its spectacular setting, great looks and minimal ethos – low-impact builds that champion sustainability, simplicity and authenticity, with high-impact design that feels as good as it looks. Quality that’s tangible and lasting, with minimal environmental disruption and maximum community spirit.
DISCONNECT TO RECONNECT – The best Digital Detox Escapes
Split into three setting categories – Country, Mountain and Sea – these undiscovered getaways include architects’ own holiday homes, private houses and stays best experienced out of high season. OFF GRID HIDEAWAYS also recommends the best local places to fully engage, savour and go slow, revealing the highlights of Quiet Season travel: hiking trails that cross fields of wildflowers; uninhabited coastlines to kayak along; hidden restaurants that celebrate local produce; special spots to watch the world go by.
Co-founders Flavia Kämpf Spahr and Sina Murphy Chan were inspired to create OFF GRID HIDEAWAYS by their own journey – from juggling the demands of a fast-paced career and starting to raise a young family to understanding the need to take stock and find something more meaningful – and their shared passion for travel, design and yoga:
“We wanted not only to share the incredible places we’ve discovered, but also drive sustainable and lasting change, by helping to redefine the concept of ‘luxury’. To us, true luxury is a better quality of life for all. Fewer possessions, more experiences. Stripping away the noise to find what’s meaningful. By sharing places where nature is front and centre, where the pace of life is slow, we encourage visitors to press pause and truly engage. In turn, this means we can support emerging tourist economies and the communities that serve them through the quieter times.”
