Two-Story Floating Tower Cottage in France

This post contains affiliate links.

This is an incredible round floating tower cottage on a lake in Joncherey, France. It’s part of a larger community of eco-friendly habitats that share a lovely “lodge” on the shore with a spa and full bathrooms.

The floating home is reminiscent of “Swiss Family Robinson,” with rustic railings made from limbs and an all-wooden interior. There is a little bathroom on the first floor, and the second floor houses a queen bed. The deck area wraps around the house, providing a comfortable spot to enjoy nature and a mug of coffee.
