There are some really quirky holiday lets out there, but if you turned up at this one you might find yourself questioning where you’ll sleep at first.
Nestled in Belgium’s countryside is this unique Airbnb which doesn’t look all that spacious from the outside.
But upon closer inspection, if you open the door and venture down the steps, you’ll realise you’ve bagged yourself a secret gem of a rental.
Think a Bond villain’s lair with breath-taking views and you wouldn’t be far off.
Now, it’s not exactly spacious. It sleeps just two people, with one bed and one bathroom.
The little studio in Tervuren, Vlaams Gewest, Belgium will set you back £128 per night but we’d say it’s worth it for its quirks and views alone.
It may be compact but there’s a double bed, shower room, kitchen and sitting area – not to mention a private terrace overlooking the gardens.
Located in Tervuren next to the Arboretum, La Vista is a green paradise for nature lovers, racing & mountain bikers, and business travellers but don’t stress because it’s easy to get into the city.
Brussels, Leuven and Wavre are all only 20 minutes away but with such gorgeous views of meadows to wake up to, we aren’t sure we’d ever want to leave.
Armaan, who left a review, said the property was ‘very quirky and unique’.
He added: ‘The view from the studio is amazing. It’s not the most practical in some aspects but it’s all part of the experience.’
Sarah also thought the Airbnb was pretty spectacular, writing: ‘One word: Magic.’
If you’re worried you’ll struggle for space the bed actually folds up, so you’ll have plenty of room.
However if you’re planning on cooking up a storm we’d say this secret studio isn’t exactly up your street.
We have to admit though, we’d feel a little like Tony Stark with that sweeping modern staircase.
If you do feel like venturing out of your luxurious lair there are plenty of walking tours available as well as beer and chocolate tasting.
Belgium is also home to the best free tourist attraction in the world – The Mini Harp Museum – according to Casago.
There’s also the Royal Museum for Central Africa if you like soaking up some culture to go with the dose of nature.
