SLEEP AL FRESCO IN THESE OPEN-AIR HOTEL ROOMS

If you like the fact that camping lets you stay in the middle of nowhere but you hate the reality of actually having to sleep on the floor inside a tent, then these open-air hotel rooms in Switzerland are for you. Zero Real Estate has a handful of roof-less and wall-less rooms – aka beds on wooden platforms – across the country, with the idea being that the “landscape becomes your wallpaper”. A stay in one of the rooms will set you back about £250 and includes butler service, wine and pizza delivery, access to washing facilities, and crucially, a back-up indoor room if it rains.

Million Stars Hotel is another brand doing something similar, with over 50 outdoor rooms in Switzerland including on mountains, city rooftops, and even in a converted cable car. With no other buildings around, let alone people, it’s the perfect socially distanced escape.
