Living In A Cloud

Cloud Refuge

How would you like to be living in a cloud in the South of France? This wood and plexiglass retreat, called Le Nuage (“the cloud”), is located just outside of Bordeaux, in Southwestern France. You and up to six of your friends or family can stay in it for free between now and October 31—all you have to do is make a reservation on Facebook. Thanks to a unique layout of built-in bunk beds, there’s plenty of room for everybody!
