The Museumotel Utopia, Râon-l'Etape, France

These strange looking, but unique 'rooms' go by the name of Museumotel Utopia and are located on a 42-acre, privately owned island at Râon-l'Etape in France.

The nine, concrete, egg-shaped bubbles, of which eight function as a hotel room, were designed by architect Pascal Haüsermann in 1967 and their interior design is based on the period of the 1950s through 1970s.

Their designer furniture and decorations are constantly exchanged and available for use, while in the meantime being displayed for admiration, hence the name Museumotel.

Every bubble has its own theme and you have the choice to spend your stay in the Pop Art, Zen, 50', Star, Chlorophylle, or Love bubble which all comfortably accommodate 2 people, or the Purple or Orange bubbles which offer enough space for 5 persons.

The small rooms include 2 twin beds, except for the Love bubble which has a heart-shaped double bed, and the big bubbles have either a double bed or 2 twin beds, double sleeper sofa and one bunk bed.

In each 'room' you will also find a bathroom with a shower, washbasin and toilet. There are no TVs present, but a WIFI Internet connection is available in the main bubble. A bar with outside terrace, a multi-purpose hall and private, closed parking are also at your disposal.

You can either rent a bubble, or the entire island for that matter. They are open all year long with the exception of Christmas Day and the first two weeks of January. How much you would pay for either one will be disclosed in the next post on this topic!
