Star Gazing in France in a Pop-Up Cabin

Carré d'étoiles Star Gazing CabinI found this in my Springwise Trends newsletter:

French tourism company Bocages has created a pop-up cabin for four that is designed specifically for stargazing. Each cabin features a transparent dome in the roof, a telescope and a sky observation kit. Just launched this year, Carré d’étoiles, portable and reversible cube-shaped structures crafted with recyclable wood, have been installed in several holiday spots in France.

“Included in each parquet-floored cabin are a double cabin bed, a sofa bed for two, a kitchenette with refrigerator and hot plates, shower, toilet, wardrobe, electric heating, a bio-ethanol fireplace and cast-iron garden furniture for outside. In addition to modern conveniences like flat-screen TV and connections for MP3, phone and Internet, Carré d’étoiles cabins also come equipped with bedding and towels, and extra services such as cleaning and breakfast can be added. Black-out blinds, meanwhile, facilitate use of the telescope and stargazing kit.”

Pretty cool, eh?
