The Juvet Landscape Hotel in Valldal, Norway (about 300 miles northwest of Oslo) is possibly one of the coolest tiny hotels there is. The 7 – 290 sq. foot | 27 sq. meter - cabins that make up the property are inspired by Phillip Johnson’s Glass House in New York and each has breathtaking picture windows that open up to take in the remote wilderness that stretches as far as the eye can see. Better yet, unless you wander into the spa or restaurant, these cabins are designed to avoid your neighbors at all costs.
Norwegian firm Jensen & Skodvin designed the awesome stand-alone modern cabins. And while the interiors are minimal to not take away from the expansive remarkable views, they are retrofitted with a touch of Scandi modernist furniture to round-out the experience for those with more stylish sensibility.
I trust you've enjoyed escaping from it all this week. You'll need a vacation after the Holidays and nothing allows you to disconnect more than being in a lovely location, alone, 1 on 1 with nature.
And with this, I say "hasta luego". May the rest of your year be memorable. See you in 2013!
