Our freelance journalist Hilary Edesess will not only attend the inauguration of the Pomme du Bois Rond this evening in Mesnil-Follemprise, Normandy, France, but she has the great pleasure of staying the night in the apple.
NOTE: We’d originally wrote that we would go live on our Facebook page with Hilary to give you a tour of the hotel but due to poor reception—as it is an exclusive getaway spot surrounded by nature—, we are unable to carry out our Facebook live tour of the micro-hotel. However, Hilary is currently working right now on capturing as much footage as she can to share with you soon.
Today, the young company Capsulo, a specialist in tourist architectural creations, is opening its first exploration micro-hotel in Normandy, France, in the shape of a giant apple surrounded by nature.
Located in Mesnil-Follemprise, in the Bray area, near Dieppe, the Pomme du Bois Rond has an exterior made of mahogany. The structure is round, as mentioned in its name, and the interior furnishings are also rounded—with exception of the bed.
Following the live tour, we will be publishing an interview with the architect in which we will discuss the materials and technicalities in more depth.
Inside, La Pomme du Bois Rond has all the comforts of a hotel room: a large double bed with a panoramic view of the outside, a fully equipped bathroom, a terrace and amenities to enhance the trip (coffee machine, dishes). This micro-hotel room is equipped with heating, running water and electricity.
