Stay in a Swiss Vacation Home That's Literally Inside a Mountain
Uli Schöberl

Completed in 2009, this unusual villa that's available for rent through Boutique Homes, is embedded into the hillside, making most of its functional spaces subterranean. A dramatically-recessed shape gives the villa the quality of a modern art installation, while the organic shape of its central terrace-the only part of the house that can be seen from the outside-seems to meld with the natural landscape.
