This travel destination reminds me a bit of an older post I wrote about the ice igloos in Finland. No, you can’t watch the northern lights from these tent hotels, but you can visit when it’s warm and sunny in France. The tents are the concept of designer Pierre Stéphane who aimed to create a camping experience that is out of the ordinary but still kind to nature.
The tents come in two options, transparent or opaque (depending on your preferred amount of exhibitionism/voyeurism), and have 13′ circumference. You best be looking for a cozy experience if you choose this vacation.
I don’t know if you can run out and buy one for yourself, but there are now two hotels in France that will let you rent the experience, Attrap’Rêves in Bouches-du-Rhone (near Marseille) and Sky River outside of Loir-et-Cher. Attrap’Rêves’ bubble rooms start at 109 euros per night. You’ll have to fork over more if you want to pamper yourself by renting one with the jacuzzi option.
I have far more travel plans than time or money to travel. This blog is becoming a way for me to store these ideas for future referral. I have a trip to Italy coming up in June, so my newest fascination, the bubble tent, will have to wait. This one is at least a more realistic and attainable trip than some of the others I’ve stumbled upon.
