Unusual Business: A Wine Barrel Hotel

Posted on October 11, 2011


There’s nothing like the smell of French Chateau in the morning.

If you’re visiting the Netherlands and you like wine, then this is the spot for you.  Try staying a night at the only place on earth where you can actually sleep inside of a wine barrel.

At the Hotel De Vrouwe van Stavoren, 4 giant vintage wine barrels have made a voyage all the way from Switzerland (and originally France) to become the host of guests from all over the world. Formerly filled with 14,500 liters of wine from the French Chateau, each barrel now holds a two person bedroom with an attached bathroom and sitting room.

Nobody can say exactly where the best place is to put a giant wine barrel hotel, but no matter what kind of business you have, make sure you plan your location carefully. Location has everything to do with key customer traffic and how you fare against competition. Being that where you build your company can often make you or break you, it’s best to fully analyze potential territory before making site selection.
