Unusual places to stay in France's Gers region

Description

In France's south-western Gers region, you can spend the night in a mill or even a castle. In Lomagne, nicknamed "little Tuscany", an old flour mill has been transformed into a fully restored gite. Meanwhile, the Viella castle, built in 1763, dominates the Madiran vineyard. Tourists now sleep in the castle's old farmhouse, where they can fully appreciate the beauty and calm of the Gers region while tasting the local wine.

  • Floating Hotel Docks in London, Completing Voyage from Amsterdam

    This is the Good Hotel, a massive floating hotel that has finally docked into London' Royal Docks on Thursday afternoon. The Good Hotel is no ordinary floating hotel - it has just completed a major voyage across the English Channel after it started off on its journey from Amsterdam on Monday. Unfortunately, the hotel was a bit delayed in arriving to its final destination due to adverse weather and tidal conditions, but all guests are now safe and sound in the United Kingdom. This former floating prison was converted to a hotel by Dutch entrepreneurs, but it's much more than a floating accomodation. People staying at the hotel can rest in peace in a fully functioning hotel room while making a journey from one port to the next. The 144-room, 17.6 million pound hotel has now completed its first long journey across the channel to the capital of Great Britain, and perhaps many more journeys lie ahead. Would you ever take a voyage on the Good Hotel?

The management are preparing to try out the newest feature of Good Hotel - they plan to tow it out into the sea and use a special barge to take it all the way across the English Channel to London. Crews working on the Amsterdam docks are preparing the 144-room, 17.6 million pound hotel for the long and unprecedented journey across the channel to the capital of the United Kingdom, where it will arrive to serve its guests at London's Royal Docks.
