ground floor, good eye… while Lying in bed, one activates the store, like a curtain of the theatre, opens in the early morning on a representation of the ordinary, a spectacle live. Behind the glass, the cold, the resort of Avoriaz 1800 which comes to life ; inside, a cozy cocoon, the urge to bugger. It is not so common to be able to curl up in the warmth of a duvet while seeing out a dawn quivering repainted blue and purple of the surrounding mountains.

Even a suite with panoramic view does not offer this closeness. This immersion in nature, at the foot of the slopes of the resort, is the luxury offered by the new concept of hospitality nomadic and ephemeral, Flying, Nest, opened this winter by AccorHotels. It’s Impossible not to notice the presence of this “pop-up hospitality,” composed of former take shipping containers that have been converted into bed: 25 “studettes” of 13 m2 with double bed, bathroom with shower, storage space, minimalist, mini-bar… And a few private terraces in the first floor exposed south-south-west. No tv, it disconnects.

” It’s a trick of child, for me, the dream to create a cabin in a place where there is no permit to build.”


A common space allows you to be back from the breakfast. The design of this hotel eco-friendly is signed by Ora-ïto, who, beyond a clean aesthetic, wood and metal, was able to rationalize with taste, space, standing a decoration all in green and white. “It is a bit of a thing to a child for me, the dream to create a cabin in a place where there is no permit to build,” says the designer. It is also in the spirit of the NoNo, the new nomad”. Planned closure on march 22. And imagine already a summer version: maybe, one day, a Flying Is free-floating, story of go to the sea these containers made for travel.

Flying Nest ( ; 150 to 350 € per night for two, including breakfast.
