This is one of the weirdest tourist attractions you will ever come across. A cottage made completely of edible chocolate with room for four persons is to open this October in Paris. You can spend a night there for just 50 Euros. The walls and roof are made of edible chocolate.
Designed and manufactured by Jean-Luc Decluzeau, the renowned artisan chocolatier who specialises in chocolate sculptures, this unique, 18-square-metre chocolate cottage will be crafted out of approximately 1.5 tons of comfectionery. Those lucky enough to secure the cottage, which sleeps four, can look forward to a delicious night of decadence.
Sweet-toothed guests won’t know where to begin, with treats available to eat in every corner. The cottage walls, roof, dresser, clock, cups, books, chandelier – and even fireplace – will all be immortalised in chocolate. Outside, a white chocolate duck pond and chocolate flowerbed are also on display.
And the good news? Many of the chocolate fittings and fixtures are fully edible.

The cottage is located in the glass house L’Orangerie Ephémère in the gardens of the Cité de la Céramique in Paris.
Guests will also have the opportunity to attend a workshop where they’ll learn to craft personalised mini chocolate chalets.

Booking opens from 9am on Wednesday 19 September for the night of 5 October, and from 9am on Wednesday 26 September for the night of 6 October. The one-of-a-kind creation costs just €50 ($90 AU) per night.
