Whether it's a treehouse, a castle, a windmill, or a yurt, France has many unusual places to stay while visiting the country.

For example, Aquitaine,-Dordogne is in the southwest corner of France, one can rent a 1-bedroom treehouse cabin on 6-metre stilts. It has a burl table in the kitchen and a whirlpool bath and a private sauna.

Just outside of Marseille, you could find accommodations in a capsule hotel, which is a bubble in the Provençal countryside. A transparent bubble made of recycled materials allows those inside it to sleep in nature and take in the view, even from bed. Each of the bubbles has a star chart and telescope, as well as a private shower.

Then there's the hobbit hut in the Bordeaux region. It's just big enough for two people, with a queen-sized bed, small kitchen and a hot tub. It also has a sky dome so the occupants can watch the stars all night if they so choose. The huts are built on a human scale, so almost anyone can stand straight up inside the hut.

In Hérault, in the hills of the Caroux Plateau, is a large yurt for glamping. It has wooden floors, five gigantic windows, and a domed ceiling which allows the sun in. The interior of the yurt is homey, with books on the bookshelves and plants scattered about.

This category is where you will find such accommodations, as well as hotels, inns, hostel, and campgrounds, or anywhere one might want to stay.
