How’s this for a cocoa fiend’s dream vacation? An overnight stay in a cottage made entirely from chocolate.

The Chocolate Cottage, located within a museum in Sevres, France, features walls, roof, fireplace, library, cupboards, dishes, knickknacks and even a little pond made out of chocolate, according to an exclusive listing on

Designed and fabricated from more than one and half tons of chocolate by chocolatier Jean-Luc Decluzeau, the 194-square-foot cottage can accommodate as many as 4 people for a maximum of two nights per visit.

“I never thought I was going to build a human-sized chocolate cottage for travelers,” Decluzeau told the press. “I’m very happy to share my passion for chocolate, and I hope travelers will enjoy their stay in such a unique and tasty place.”

Each visit includes dinner and breakfast in the cottage’s “charming flower garden,” according to the listing, as well as a workshop led by Decluzeau in which guests will create little chocolate houses to bring home as mementos of their stay.

While the Chocolate Cottage is not currently accepting new bookings, new dates will become available. On September 26, at 10 a.m. European time, a booking for October 6 will go on sale. Cost: a remarkably affordable 50 euros (about $59 U.S.) per night.

If you’re gearing up for a stay, you should know that pets are not allowed (I mean, of course!) and all children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent of legal guardian during their stay. There is no smoking on the site and you are not permitted to bring alcohol or drugs with you on your stay.

While the cottage is equipped with a double bed and two single beds (one hopes those are NOT made of chocolate -- because … ew, gross), it does not have bathroom facilities (because … ew, grosser!). Toilets are available nearby, however.

“You will not have to damage (or eat!) the accommodation,” notes. “Lots of chocolate snacks will be provided.”

And if that doesn’t melt your heart …
