The Guardian article Natural Lines of Succession: six opulent retreats in the UK.

Shiv quips, “Which way to Chairman Matsson’s re-education camp?” before the inevitable sauna, axe-throwing, archery and cringey disco kick in. Outside the transparent sweat bath, Karl jokes that the men in (birthday) suits are “hanging in the window like peking duck”.

The minimalist Juvet will be familiar from the 2014 sci-fi movie Ex Machina and is clearly inspired by Mies van der Rohe’s famous Edith Farnsworth House near Chicago. Kendall is not impressed, calling his brother to complain about how small his room is. Though after the ride to the restaurant at the top of Nesaksla via the Romsdalen cable car, Swedish billionaire Matsson defends it all by saying: “People kind of think it’s cool.” Though, as usual with Succession, none of the bored super rich characters seems even remotely excited by the luscious locations they always reach by gas-guzzling private jet.

Juvet’s picture windows are all about communing with nature, which is all the rage now, from a British version in Sussex to a beach hut in Devon for £450 a night and 1 Hotels bringing plants and green walls into the rooms – its first British outpost opens in London this summer. But unless you’ve got a media mogul’s offshore bank account, you’d be better off in one of these more affordable options, where you can immerse yourself in nature with surroundscape views of the British countryside.
