Yes, sleeping in an actual transparent bubble is possible in the French countryside in Attrap’Rêves Bubble hotels. These are placed in Bouches-du-Rhone or Loir-et-Cher and they do present a truly unique experience.
The inflatable tents are created from UV-reflecting materials that are recyclable and they are easily set up in just a couple of minutes. The pressure that keeps the bubbles inflated is regular due to the effects of the always active pumps that are completely noiseless so your relaxation will not be hampered by the usual pumping sounds. The diameter of the bubbles is around 13 feet(4 meters).
There are numerous options regarding this product. The basic one includes roll-out beds, sofas, moveable wardrobes, a coffee table and other basic features, but also a telescope and a star chart, with the additional option of using electricity. More luxurious options include attachable bathroom and an additional bedroom. Additional versions adapted for beach use exist and even the one that enables you to enjoy elevated views by wrapping around the trunk of a tree and floating above the ground.
Still, due to the fact that they can be placed virtually anywhere, you might require a bit more privacy, so there is also a version that is not completely transparent and offers more privacy, but still providing amazing views of the sky from any point of the interior.
The entire idea came from the designer’s desire to build lodging that can provide a genuine natural experience without sacrificing the luxury, but also leaving the surrounding nature intact when moved from the site. This might have sounded impossible, but the result is more than successful, functionally and visually as well. watch video below
