This Eco-Friendly Solar Holiday Home Has Power To Spare

Sitting in a quaint village in Chiemgau, Germany between the Chiemsee lake and Salzburg is a retro vacation home with smart upgrades for incredible energy efficiency. Originally built in the 1970s, the Solar Holiday Home S3 By Holiday Architecture is a stunning example of minimalist design.

Thanks to solar modules fixed on the sloped roof, this A-frame house can produce more energy than it burns, allowing it to charge up an electric car or bike with the extra juice. The interior is built with clay boards that store heat in the winter and cool the house during the summer months. On the ground floor, you’ll find a bedroom, bathroom, and living room, which opens up to the pointed roof. To continue the smooth, minimalist vibe of the house, the kitchen island merges into the dining table and a convenient ladder leads up to the sleeping loft. And you’ll be able to enjoy the sweeping views of the Chiemgau Alps while you drink a warm cup of coffee in the morning. You can rent this holiday cottage today if you’re looking to unwind.

Purchase: $2,200+
