Are you travelling to France soon? Do you have your itinerary planned but want to indulge in something more adventurous? Then, you should look up the once-in-a-lifetime offer from Airbnb and Volvic to spend one night at the foot of a volcano in southeast France.
The online short-term rental company and mineral water brand have teamed up to organize a lavish, one-night-only stay for just two lucky adventurers this September in the Chaîne des Puys volcanic field, Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, France.
While you will surely not be attacked by fiery lava, you will definitely get to experience everything the UNESCO World Heritage Site has to offer, along with gourmet meals and unforgettable activities. Even more enticing might be the cost for the whole experience: a single euro.
You’ll spend a night in a “Lumipod” mini-home owned by record-breaking mountain athlete and Volvic Global Ambassador Kilian Jornet. The tiny dwelling has just enough room for a queen-size bed and an en suite bathroom and offers a breathtaking panoramic view of the surrounding volcanos.
In case that somehow isn’t enough to pique your interest, your stay comes with a load of extras. These include a guided tour of the area, a volcanic hike designed by Jornet, a locally sourced dinner for two by local Michelin star chef Adrien Descouls, a morning yoga session and, possibly best of all, a hot air balloon ride over the Chaîne des Puys. Better yet, none of this will cost a cent more, as they’re all included in the one-night, one euro rate.
“We are thrilled to partner with Volvic and Kilian to offer this exciting and exclusive stay that celebrates one of the natural wonders that France has to offer to the world,” Airbnb’s Europe, Middle East and Africa director, Emmanuel Marill said in a statement. “The past year demonstrated how connecting with nature is an important resource to regenerate and deal with stress. Natural parks provide endless opportunities for adventure for everyone”
The listing for Jornet’s house goes live at 3 a.m. ET Monday, July 19, for a stay on September 18. Set an alarm, too, because there’s only one booking slot available–and it will go the first person who meets the requirements, on a first-come, first-served basis. One other thing to note: You and your guest will be responsible for your transportation to and from the location. But that seems like a small price to pay for what’s sure to be a truly special experience.
