Aside from the fact that Villa Boreale is predominantly constructed out of wood, the Quebec, Canada, escape is quite different from a traditional wood cabin. Yes, it's surrounded by nature in a secluded part of a forest, specifically Municipality of Petite-Riviere-St-Francois and near the ski center Le Massif, but there is something very simple about its design. One could say, Scandinavian.

Made out of the natural grain of Eastern white cedar, the Villa Boreale also boasts black metal cladding in stark contrast. Its minimal outdoor aesthetic is carried on inside with the sleek white kitchen, concrete floors and pale wood tones. It can impressively accommodate up to 14 people, making it the perfect place for a good time.
