More people are looking for remote gateways, such as living in an old-school covered wagon or sleeping in a truck camper in the woods. Another option to consider? An eco-friendly floating pod that can sail worldwide.
Anthena is a luxury, floating hotel suite And Water based mobile home. It is designed by architect Jean-Michel Dunchell, whose inspiration for the vessel came from James Bond’s floating pod in 1977 The spy who loved me.

The floating habitat is powered by solar energy and releases clean water into the sea using black and brown water stations. It uses sand screw anchoring to avoid any damage to the underwater ecosystem and the environment. Inside, the dome-shaped ship offers 360-views of the ocean. The bedroom has an extra large round bed with an overflow round bathtub that can be filled with sea or freshwater. There is also a small living area with kitchen necessities and fiberglass windows that allow you to look out to sea. At the top, the pod has an open, outdoor seating area that accommodates 12 people.
If you want to stay a few nights, there are pods on the Côte de Granit Rose (aka the Pink Granite Coast) in Brittany, France. If you want to buy one for a stay or as a second home, you can do so – and even request customization in your pod. The pod is designed to be cradled so that owners can travel to different destinations. For pricing and more information, visit the company’s website.
