English translation:a no-nonsense spot away from the hustle and bustle
Explanation:
so it's not as poetic as the original )-:

Are we talking a single place, or something more general?

If it's more general:

A no-nonsense escape from the hustle and bustle

A no-nonsense refuge from the noise of the city,

etc., etc.

HTH anyway (although it may not!)

Without the rambling and away from the chaos


Explanation:
"Lari-Fari" usually refers to pointless talking. "Der redet mal wieder nur Larifari." means "He once again just keeps rambling on (without getting to a point)."

"Remmidemmi" refer to hectic/chaotic situations, where a lot is going on.

Your own explanation of

"getting away from it all"

pretty much drives the point of the German/Austrian phrases home clear and sound.
