Spend the night in a tent hanging from a tree, an igloo, a round house that turns with the sun, a giant hamster cage, at the top of a lighthouse, in a cider cask, a glass pyramid, a 2CV car or an English double-decker bus, aboard a plane, in a house anchored to the top of a factory smokestack, in a gypsy caravan, in a luxurious treehouse, in a red cube in the middle of the countryside or at the top of the Pic du Midi in the French Pyrenees …

The result of four years of research, our selection of hotels, B&Bs, self-catering cottages and other unconventional lodgings will let you spend a night unlike any other, which you will never forget.

More than 160 unusual places, starting at €10 a night.
