Greetings from Arthur Vollmer:
My whole life was planned – every month, all year.
It has to be when you run a company and do business. I also planned my private life. Maria – my wife – was also always integrated into my work (and company). We worked and planned everything together.
When I first came to Nova Scotia, Canada, that was 1981 (in winter), I was already planning to change my life.
At the time, I said, “Canada, this is my country, that’s where I want to live.” It took me 7 years to realize this.
We sold everything in Germany and built a holiday paradise (VIPILODGE) in the south of Cape Breton Island.
I designed and built a holiday resort with maximum peace, convenience and private atmosphere for our guests.
Living here – on a peninsula – should be the ideal case of isolating oneanother from the hectic world around us.
The log cabins I built are designed for 2 people. In the houses you can do without TV and internet.
You can enjoy the sounds of nature. The leaves in the wind, the chirping of the birds or the absolute silence of the night.
Slow Down Living – that’s how we do it here, from the beginning.
