Bedbound Galaxy Gazing

It comes complete with a circular observer window in the ceiling, which guests can gaze out of from the comfort of their own bed. In addition to the kitchen, living room, bathroom, sleeping area and gallery, “Carré d’Etoiles” guests are treated to their very own telescope to further their cosmic explorations.

An overnight stay for two is £98 per night.
