In the north-eastern tip of France on the west bank of the Rhine river, near the border with Germany and Switzerland lies Alsace, a crossover of cultures which is one of the smallest but also most fascinating regions of France.
Bernardvillé extends along the legendary Route des Vins, or the Wine Route, in a natural, perfectly preserved panoramic route consisting of 170 km of vineyards. In this area stands the Domaine Les jardins de Madeleine wine estate.
Les Jardins de Madeleine
Bernardvillé, Alsace – France
Renovation – Residential suburban (villas, farmhouses and vacation homes)
Siehr, Strasbourg – Maxime Schneider Designer
Recently renovated, the Domaine Les jardins de Madeleine is a maison d’hôtes located within a traditional Alsatian timbered house, which offers a skilful blend of tradition, elegance, and design.
The refurbishment, overseen by designer Maxime Schneider from Siehr, our distributors in Strasbourg, centred around the valorisation of space, respecting the building’s natural origins.
To create the right look for floor, Ms Schneider opted for the Komi series, one of our biggest lines offering a blend of nature and modernity.
Laid in the 24×240 cm floorboard version, the grains and knots in Komi spread across its lightly shaded surfaces to bring the warmth and purity of a natural material, with essential, contemporary mood.

Scheiblhofer THE RESORT
Located at Andau (Austria), the modern Scheiblhofer THE RESORT offers its customers exclusive wellbeing experiences, family plans and fine wining and dining focused on regional products.
The resort, designed by famous architect Arkan Zeytinoglu, embodies the concepts and values of sustainable architecture, protection of the natural environment and energy saving. In fact, the design includes the creation of a garden – where the fruit, vegetables and herbs grown are then used in the kitchen – and a “wine trail” to create continuity between the hotel and the environment.Portland

Cradle of the Slavic civilisation, melting pot of different cultures, bridge between the East and the West, today the city boasts an infinite array of both cultural and panoramic attractions. From Saint Sophia Cathedral to Saint Michael’s Monastery, through to the best known districts like Podil, Kyiv never ceases to amaze and is also home to numerous parks and important museums.
The city is also the location of the private Dobrobut clinics, jewel in the crown of the local health service, which consist of 12 medical centres qualified in accordance with modern international standards. Equipped with all the latest technologies, the Dobrobut Clinics are modern and welcoming facilities.
And it was in one of these facilities that the allure and functionality of Ceramica Fondovalle branded products was chosen to elegantly furnish some of the internal spaces of the building.Planeto
