This year we're all about fun and unique places where you can spend the night, from tree houses and yurts to private islands and rafts. Today we want to present you the latest alternative accommodation nestled in Limburg, Belgium: suspended teardrop-shaped tents hanging from trees. Essentially you can sleep in them like in a cocoon!
The tents were invented by Dutch designer Dré Wapenaar in 1990, taking part in the Pit Landscape art festival in Belgium. The project supported environmental activists who wanted to halt logging. Twenty years later in 2011, you were finally able to rent them as an overnight stay.
The tents are suspended from trees and can be accessed with a ladder. Inside there is a mattress for two people, a bench, a place to store belongings and a window through which you can admire the peaceful surroundings. Outside there is a bathroom and a barbecue area.
Accommodation in these cozy tents can be booked from April to the end of September. The price of each accommodation is about $85, for an additional fee of $18 per person for breakfast. Sound like something you'd enjoy trying?
