Accor opens experimental accommodation in the Alps

AccorHotels has launched an innovative new type of accommodation in the Alps called ‘Flying Nest’. The first Flying Nest rooms are now open 1,800 metres high in the Avoriaz ski resort.

Flying Nest in the Avoriaz ski field is a collection made out of mobile timber containers, which can be shipped in conferences and events as required.
The shipping containers have been designed and repurposed by French designer Ora-ïto. Each container is 12 sq m but has its own living area, private bathroom and floor to ceiling window of the landscape.

“The layout of the islands, the patio and the large windows connecting the inside of each room to the outside all provide guests with a totally immersive accommodation option at the heart of the experience”, said Damien Perrot, Senior Vice President Design at AccorHotels.
