My airbnb experience in Spain...

It was a nice and sunny day in Stavanger and we were making our final plans for our upcoming Barcelona trip. We had already decided to go by the air, but there we two things we still needed to do - book our flight tickets, and book a nice place to stay!

And this is when I was introduced to airbnb by my friend Sunny. It was quite an exciting task as we hobbled over his computer to pick a lovely place in the city - two out of us four were women and wanted a much bigger say in what we decide, and we men were more keen on picking a place close to the beach and also very affordable. Finally we picked an 18th Century apartment in the heart of the city which was affordable, in a safe location and also extremely beautiful.

I was more than pleasantly surprised when the apartment was even better than what I thought! Our hostess (the owner of the house) received us the street and took us to the beautiful house on the fourth floor. The house had practically everything, fully furnished room, a wall full of books and a well-equipped kitchen. Though we spent little time over the next four days in the house, it became our home nevertheless. We missed saying goodbye to the place as much as we felt bad saying goodbye to Barcelona.

What is Airbnb?

And with world-class customer service and a growing community of users, Airbnb is the easiest way for people to monetize their extra space and showcase it to an audience of millions.

My dream destination...

As a part of this offer, airbnb also invited me to pick my favourite destination amongst all the listing not the site. Trust me it was not easy, and I struggled for two full days before I could make my choice. Do have a look at some of the listings to know how difficult it can be, they spoil you with choices! 

So here is my dream destination Tree house Gabrielle d'Estrees!

Who does not dream about living in a dream house - I did that as a kid, but I dream about it even now! So this makes it an obvious pick for me :)

Gabrielle d'EstrĂ©es is a treehouse built on a 150 years old oak tree. It is located between the impressive Castle of Graville and the surrounding forest, in a quiet area over fields and woods.  It can host 2 people.

There is comfy double bed, and a hammock on the south-oriented terrasse so you can enjoy the early morning sunlight. No electricity in the tree house ! Candles lights only, which makes for an old school, romantic atmosphere in the evening.

A dinner can be delivered to you upon request, light picnic or gourmet hot meal, depending on your fancy. Around 9 am in the morning, a basket with your breakfast will be delivered at the bottom of your tree, tied up to a rope, ready to be pulled up and enjoyed on the terrace.

The car ride from Paris will take you around 1 hour. The train ride is 47 minutes, and then you can either take a cab, ride your bikes or walk from the station (the castle is 6 kms from the train station, so around 45 minutes walk).
