Sleep under the Milky Way in a cabin on SKIS in the Dolomites (can only be reached by snowmobile)

At an altitude of 6,742 feet in the breathtaking Dolomite Mountains, this is a room with an unbeatable view.
The Starlight Room near Cortina is set on a pair of skis for easy mobility, and offers unobstructed views of the spectacular Unesco World Natural Heritage Nature site for 300 euros (£234) a night.
With just glass walls separating the snug cabin's bed from the rolling snowcapped hills, the Italian haven is a perfect retreat for couples or solo travellers looking for an incredible private viewing of the exotic mountainous region and the stars above.

Inside, the cabin houses necessities for a cosy night under the stars, including a heater and an adjustable bed.
There is even a flatscreen television that plays timelapse images of the Dolomites, if the real thing doesn't prove spectacular enough.
One of the drawbacks to the property is the lack of a bathroom, so a quick dash outside in the cold landscape may be needed during a stay.
Complimentary dinner and breakfast are provided to sustain you from dawn until dusk.
