What a wonderful construction this is! The Alachigh is used by a nomadic tribe, the Shahsavan, from northern Iran.
The Alachigh is set apart a little from the yurts and tipis and has its own elevated position with absolutely stunning views over the Teifi Valley, covering a distance of approximately 15 miles as the crow flies. There is a window which looks out over this view with an oak breakfast bar with bar stools to 'soak it up' first thing in the morning (or any other time of the day!)
The overall effect is a dome shape. There is a central crown - with locally sourced steam bent oak timbers curving from the crown to the oak floorboards. We have covered this wooden framework in a stone coloured 12 oz canvas and adorned the inside with a marquee lining, together with drapes - adding to the sense of luxury. All is home-made - Tony doing the woodwork and Fran the sewing of the canvas.
