Perfect hiding place: Antoine by Bureau A

It is a special retreat, barely visibly located in the Swiss Alps. You have to know exactly where this ‘cabin’ can be found, for it has been disguised as a boulder in the middle of a field of large stones. This cabin, whose interior is made of wood, has enough space for one person and is encased in a concrete shell. Camouflage at its best!

The sheltering boulder is called Antoine – Bureau A’s homage to the great Swiss author Charles-Ferdinand Ramuz in the name of one of the main characters in the novel Derborence. After a rockslide, Antoine is trapped under a stone for seven weeks before he is able to return to his village. Today’s Alpine hikers will find this stone a bit more comfortable – it features a bed, stove, table and chair, not to mention peace and solitude.
