The De Vrouwe van Stavoren Hotel, Stavoren, Netherlands
It turns out that wine barrels store not only wine, but people! Northern harbor town Stavoren, where this unique hotel is located, is a major tourist center and Hotel de Vrouwe van Stavoren ( Lady of Stavoren) is the main hallmark of the city.
Each barrel is a separate standard room for two people. Some rooms provide everything- shower or bath, toilet, television, radio, telephone, desk, safe, hair dryer. Shops, bar, restaurant, business center- all provide the conveniences for the guests. For recreation you can chose ride a bicycle or just practice many water sports. The ceiling of wine barrel is high enough so you will not feel like a bird in a cage; on the contrary, you will feel like a duck to water. Some rooms also provide beautiful views to harbor and the statue of the legendary “lady of Stavoren”.
