New to Host Unusual: From Aussie Eco Havens to Luxury Lapland Lodges

Authenticity is the name of today’s game, as we bring together a cohort of incredible places, each one bona fide and utterly original, assuring you an experience like no other. 

In Australia we meet three blissful eco havens; an architect-designed retreat in the wilds of Tasmania, a luxurious tropical cabin paradise and a riverside farm with a beautifully converted milking shed. 

In France we head for the canopies with two idyllic and rustic treehouse hideaways, whilst in Portugal we have a tipi & tiny house on an organic farm close to Algarve’s beaches – or you can pick up a quirky retro camper van to wander the same long coastline. 

Finally we have a luxurious wilderness Lapland lodge – prime Northern Lights viewing territory!
