Another reader requested abode – although I can’t for the life of me remember who requested it! (Sorry!!)
Les Containers is a très awesome vacation rental in France.
The structure is a 2-story, 2 bedroom 2-bath getaway cottage built from 2 upcycled shipping containers. (2-2-2-2!!)
The boxes are stacked, but off-set so it doesn’t totally look like a double-decker box-car.
The container house is located in Saintry-sur-Seine, Île-de-France which is about 30 kilometers south of Paris.
The industrial feel of the containers is softened with distinctly French ironwork details and an artful interior.
Les Containers rents for around $100USD a night.
Not a bad price – for a spot on the Seine River close to Paris!
Beautiful and ingenious!
ps……Have a look at another shipping container house I featured a while ago to see how these things are being utilized.
[And thanks to whoever told me about this one!]
