A Cable Car Turned Luxury Room Flying Above the French Alps

An appartment suspended in midair above the alpine moutains.

Adventurous travelers can now direct their wanderlust towards Airbnb’s daring, redesigned cable car-turned-luxury accommodation. It’s suspended in midair above the Courcheval ski resort in the French Alps. But, before you book your plane ticket, know that it’s not available for just anyone to rent. The gorgeous room is actually a grand prize in the site’s latest competition.

This cable car hangs over 2,700 meters above sea level and is near the top of the Sommet de la Saulire, which is a mountain in the Massif de la Vanoise. Airbnb transformed it into a one bedroom, two bed-apartment that can host up to four guests at a time. They will not win prizes for the interior design, but with a stunning panorama like this who cares for the furniture anyway.
