Ever thought about literally living (and sleeping) in a bubble? The innovative Attrap’Reves hotel consists of habitable plastic bubble domes and was built using recyclable materials.
These transparent “spheres” are maintained by a silent blower which continuously allows fresh air to get in and keep a high level of oxygen. Each transparent bubble offers panoramic views of the surrounding countryside in Allauch, a French commune situated 10 kilometers east of Marseille, in the department of Bouches-du-Rhône.
An unconventional accommodation complex with only six bubbles in a natural environment, away from the city racket seems like a perfect getaway. Contrary to our initial thoughts, the owners of the hotel guarantee total privacy. Interior design-wise, each bubble has its own identity and the decor varies depending on the ambiance visitors desire. The names of the bubbles-like units are revealing; Zen, Nature, Glamour, 1001 nights or Chic & Design. Our favorite is Nature, with its grass flooring and remote location.
Unlike more common outdoor adventures (such as sleeping in a tent), these intriguing bubbles come with an ingenious developing concept, allowing visitors to spend the night under the clear skies, without experimenting any drawbacks like bad weather, insects or humidity. Catering on site is also possible, with menus starting at 19 euros. A stay here is priced from 109 euros in low season for two persons, telescope with star chart included.
