Bubble Tree, France

16 of 17

These transparent inflatable pods are not for guests requiring either privacy or pitch black to get some shut-eye. The airy architectural bubbles were designed by Pierre Stéphane Dumas and have proved popular all across Europe. Thirteen locations currently use them as guesthouses in FRance, including one on the grounds of the 16th-century castle Château de la Forêt, and bubbles have also appeared in Spain and Switzerland. Ideal for stargazing; maybe not so much for honeymooners. bubbletree.fr
