Stay in a Gypsy Caravan


Stardust reminded me of the awesomeness of gypsy caravans, also known as roulottes. Did you know there are lots of roulottes all over Provence, France that you can rent? Really! There's a great article on the history of the caravans -- and their resurgence -- in Travel and Leisure.


And here's a very long listing of roulettes to rent in France. The pictures here all came from those listings.

Stardust was an excellent movie!

But where would one sleep in a gypsy caravan?

Well, looks like those mirrors at the sides are doors:
