Swiss B & B Goes All Out With Pod Theme

VILLARS, Switzerland (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A luxury bed & breakfast in the Swiss Alps is offering guests a chance to sleep next to a chalet in snow-covered white pods equipped with – what else? – iPods.

The B&B/ eco-camp is aptly named Whitepod, and features five dome-shaped geodesic tents heated with wood stoves and lit by petrol lanterns.

Whitepod owner Sofia De Meyer says there’s no electricity in the pods, but that’s not to say the camp isn’t “plugged in.”

De Meyer explains all the iPods are battery operated and if you don’t like the pre-set selection of music in your particular pod, “There’s a computer in the main chalet where you can download the music you want.”

While the iPods are a nice distraction, De Meyer says the aim of the Whitepod stay is “to come back to go ice climbing, you go paragliding. It’s an adventure camp.”
