Airbnb and French mineral water brand Volvic have teamed up to offer two guests the fantastic opportunity to stay in a unique accommodation in France: a LUMIPOD on a volcanic field.
A LUMIPOD is a round tiny house with panoramic floor-to-ceiling windows, creating the amazing feeling of sleeping outdoors.
The LUMIPOD, located in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region of France, has amazing views of the 80 volcanoes of the Chaîne des Puys, a UNESCO World Heritage site and the source of Volvic’s natural mineral water.
The Airbnb listing is hosted by award-winning ski mountaineer and long-distance runner Kilian Jornet and is priced at just one euro ($1.18, plus taxes and fees).
“It has been difficult to reconnect with nature after a year of staying inside. Many of us are itching for the opportunity to reset and recharge and what better way to do so than by unplugging, breaking out of your routine in the stunning area of Volvic where our water is born,” said Shweta Harit, global Vice President of marketing at Volvic, in a press release. “We are excited to bring a bucket-list experience to nature-loving consumers via our partnership with Airbnb. We can only hope travelers will feel refreshed from this experience as they see just how much strength nature can truly provide.”
Guests will begin with a virtual welcome video call from Jornet and then will enjoy plenty of activities, including a guided tour to learn about the rich biodiversity of the natural park; a Michelin-starred, locally sourced dinner by chef Adrien Descouls; a private morning yoga session with views of the volcanoes; a volcanic hike; and, if the weather allows, a hot-air balloon ride.
Booking opens on July 19 at 12:00 AM PT and is first-come, first-served.
