While bees may make some people uneasy thanks to their stingers, they’re some of the most important human allies worldwide. If you’d like to thank the little guys for all their hard work keeping everything pollinated, you can take advantage of a new Airbnb listing that lets you spend the night with the bees.
In honor of World Bee Day on May 20, an Italian beekeeper has made quite a buzz by opening up stays at an olive farm just outside of Grottole in southern Italy. Guests can now book a one-of-a-kind stay on the bee farm and be surrounded by one million working bees. Spend the night in a one-bedroom, one-bathroom honeycomb-shaped apiary designed and built by Davide Tagliabue of metrocubo, with building help by Mariella Gentile and volunteers. Beekeeper Rocco will welcome guests to the farm and teach them how to live surrounded by bees.
