Synopsis
The house converted from old stables, is close to the centre of one of the oldest towns in Bavaria and the garden had belonged to a former mill. Respecting these conditions, Ulrike Homberg and her husband restored the buildings carefully and redesigned the garden in a monastery style with a cross of box-edged gravel pathways and rose arbours, whilst holding onto and conserving as many of the original features as possible, including a lovely old apple tree.

A willow at the bank of the little river now gives shade where in ancient times the drying laundry had been bleached in the sun. Ulrike Homberg is fascinated by colours and textures both of plants in her garden and fabrics. Using the old summer house as an atelier she designs modern shaped handbags in traditional fabrics, many of them coming from France and Italy, as do the roses in her garden. Another source of inspiration for Ulrike is the classical Bavarian dress, the Dirndl.
