Home Sweet Home: For the first time ever, Booking.com offers guests a stay in a cottage made completely of chocolate
Cocoa fans everywhere have a unique opportunity to immerse themselves in the world’s most-beloved treat by staying in a custom-built chocolate cottage, available exclusively on Booking.com starting September 19
Paris, September 11, 2018 – Waking up in a cottage made entirely of chocolate may seem like a fairy tale, but incredibly Booking.com - the global leader in connecting travelers with the widest choice of incredible places to stay - is making this dream a reality.
Designed and manufactured by Jean-Luc Decluzeau, the renowned artisan chocolatier who specializes in chocolate sculptures, this unique 18-square-meter chocolate cottage will be crafted out of approximately 1.5 tons of chocolate. Accommodating up to four guests, those lucky enough to secure the cottage will enjoy a decadent, delicious night, surrounded by chocolate treats in every corner. Custom chocolate details inside the cottage include everything from the walls and roof to the fireplace, dresser, clock, cups, books and even a chocolate chandelier. The chocolate extravaganza extends outside the cottage to a white chocolate duck pond and an incredible flowerbed made entirely (you guessed it) all out of chocolate. And the good news for diehard chocoholics is that many of the delectable items in the cottage are actually edible, at least by those lucky enough to stay the night.
Anyone who wants to take to stay in this chocolate dream-come-true must be quick, as only a few select nights are available for booking. At 10:00 AM (CET) on September 19 and September 26 one night will become available for October 5 and 6 respectively. This unique experience can be booked for just 50 euros by visiting the exclusive Booking.com listing here: https://www.booking.com/hotel/fr/the-chocolate-cottage.en-gb.html.
