This Giant Bull on Wheels is Actually a Giant Bed and Breakfast on Wheels

Bed and breakfasts are quaint and charming, but let’s face it, they aren’t very manly. This French B-and-B, however, makes up for all of them.

La Balade des Gnomes just outside of Derby, Belgium is a fantasy themed bed and breakfast from the inside out. The most impressive feature is that it’s shaped like a giant “Trojan bull.”

The impressive details don’t stop with just this building. The entire bed and breakfast is a fantasy wonderland of hotel and hospitality management. Imagine the Hobbits’ shire with indoor plumbing.

These pictures alone make us wish we could pop into Belgium for a visit. We couldn’t find any rates on the bed and breakfast’s website, at least not in English. We’re assuming it at least requires a bad of magic beans as a deposit and some kind of talisman barter system. We’re also assuming swarms of nerds show up and try to apply their bluff skill to get a rate reduction, since it just seems like that kind of place.
