Stargazing Comfort in the Woods

As travelers move away from the uniformity of mass tourism in favor of more individualized experiences, we are seeing the trend of stylish, nomadic guest accommodations. Rural property owners and boutique guesthouses are starting to offer luxurious nature experiences in ready-made units that can be placed anywhere.

Case in point is the Carré d’étoiles (cube of the stars) from French company Bocages. Conceived by Louis Blanco and designed by young Parisian designer Marc Mourot, the minimalist cubes are a striking example of efficient use of interior space.

Each unit includes:

  • Loft bed
  • Kitchen corner
  • Fireplace with bio-ethanol chimney
  • Shower
  • Toilet
  • Parquet floors
  • Bedding and towels

Techies can get their fix with the built-in:

  • Flat-screen TV
  • Mp3 socket
  • Telephone/Internet socket

The most notable feature lies above the loft-bed; a transparent dome especially for stargazing. Each Carré d’étoiles comes with a sky observation kit including the latest refracting telescope and a stellar chart.

Bocages says, “With its daring structure, this portable and recyclable cube offers a highly original way to sleep in the open air while remaining in a cocoon-style interior.”

I’m a forest-lover who loves to camp, but being in nature with this comfort level seems like a pleasurable change of pace.

What do you think of luxury, nomadic guesthouses? What about the use of space inside the Carré d’étoiles?

The use of space is amazing. I would love one of these as the guest house on my property.
