As soon as you arrive at Panoramahaus Usedom you’ll want to run around and check out every single tastefully-decorated room. This Baltic Sea holiday home is a modern, timber-clad construction that captivates with its bright colors, well-picked furniture and artworks including from Berlin-based Jorinde Voigt. Opened by owner and host Daniel Wolter in September 2020, the property has clean, Nordic styling developed by creative agency Salty Interiors and includes twin terraces and a beautiful sauna. The open-plan kitchen and living space has floor-to-ceiling windows offering seamless access to the garden for easy cooking, eating, barbecuing and sunbathing. As for the beds, you almost feel like you’re floating as you spread out under the covers with the crowing of seagulls in the distance.
Of course, a trip to the coast isn’t complete without some time at the beach, which you can reach either via the small village of Zinnowitz or through the forest path amongst shady trees and pine smells. As you emerge onto the sand, the infinity of the sea views hits you. Settle down in one of the classic beach chairs or put your towel down in the shade and listen to the sound of the Baltic. If you want to venture further, take the car or a bike and visit Usedom’s cheese dairy or go and watch the surfers on the Achterwasser bay from Café Knatter. We visited the house this summer and are already looking forward to returning in winter so we can make the most of the open fireplace that takes pride of place in the living room. A turntable and flatscreen TV offer entertainment for rainy days, while internet is available for working holidays. The well-equipped kitchen suffices for even the keenest of cooks and comes complete with an honesty-box wine selection. Enjoying food and drink with good friends while watching the evening sky through the panoramic windows – what could be better?
