I came across the Futuro House when I was searching for campers awhile back and for some odd reason it made me feel happy. This little gem is actually in a glamping ground in Somerset UK after being found dilapidated in South Africa, and it was brought to the UK by artist Craig Barnes to be restored, and now resides as a renta,l and nestled in the woodland there at a campground and makes for a pretty memorable experience I would think.
The Futuro House that has currently landed was originally designed in the late 1960's by Finnish architect Matti Suuronen, the Futuro was meant to be the next best thing in holiday homes. Easy to transport and assemble, it was so light that it was possible to helicopter into places like ski resorts and mountainous areas. During the 60's & 70's about 100 were made, but sadly the idea didn't quite catch on, and now only half of the saucers survive, and the one in Marston Park Campground is one of the few you can stay in and enjoy its quirky history. They contain electricity, real mattresses and an indoor fireplace make the stay and experience very cozy.
Now you know I love glamping, and I think staying in one of these would be quite fun to try once. Even though I got a new camper now up at the glamping grounds...I'm not opposed. Could you picture a whole village of these flying saucers?? Of course, when glamping I have gotten spoiled with the camper...or at the very least a very swanky tent!!
