What dreamers do ⁃ a weekend with Santa Pilens and her youngest girls Frida & Gertrude-
Artist, set designer and creative mind behind wine architecture studio STUDIO PILENS, @santapilens moved to Austria a year ago. Together with her husband and 4 kids they are now based in a small village, an hour drive outside Vienna – a picturesque wine region Kamptal. Their four kids keep the couple busy … “we are never bored, our kids are always up to something”.
Frida sets the mood. Choosing an outfit is important – because it literary makes her feel good, excited and positive. She loves skirts, dresses, well everything that is expressive and bold!
That’s our family tradition. Every saturday we visit the farmers market in Krems.
BOOKSHOP AND WAFFLES
Frida and Gertrude love books, so they are happy to visit the local bookshop. It has the old time flair. Pocket books are their favorite take-away.
Our dear friend run a beautiful fine dining restaurant in Langenlois – Heurigenhof Bründlmayer. Now during lockdown they have opened up a nice market style take-away cafe. We went for waffles, ofcourse.
For festive mood, some new kitchenware and kids toys we like to visit Schloss Walpersdorf (Lederleitner). It has the most beautiful kids room setup and vintage style toys.
WALK IN THE VINEYARDS
Moving to one of the most celebrated wine regions of Austria has brought some changes in our lifestyle… more comfortable, more laid back, but always with style… kids love walking in the vineyards, where they can see how grapes grow, taste them. Feel the nature and be part of it.
WE HOPE YOU ENJOYED THE WEEKEND WITH FRIDA & GERTRUDE
