‘In the autumn mist, it appears to us fleeting and timeless, nestled along a river in the heart of a forest, like a jewel in a specifically crafted box, impressive in its size and decoration. Engulfed in this soft haze, it melts in its unspoilt scenery, and at the first glimmer of dawn, it reappears, little by little, magical and majestic.’
