The Luxury Villa embedded into a Mountain

By

10th Apr, 2012

Last week we took a look at the Flinstone’s house up for sale in California, and this week, I’ve stumbled upon another amazing cave house, this time, it’s embedded in the Swiss Alps and more suited to James Bond than Fred Flinstone…

 

The only reason Bjarne Mastenbroek and Christian Müller, from the architecture firms SeARCH and CMA, were allowed by authorities to build this modern villa near the unspoilt thermal springs of Vals in Switzerland, is because the design literally dug into the mountain, essentially camouflaged, without creating any visual disruptions.

Even cooler, there’s a secret underground tunnel entrance to the villa via the old rustic barn pictured above. Avalanche escape route?

 

Villa Vals sleeps up to 10 adults and can actually available for rent from €950 to €3850 (between ten people that might not be a bad deal for a week). To see more booking info & availability, visit here.
