The French travel genius and his wonderful “wandering” hotel

Thierry Teyssier, the hotelier-storyteller behind southern Morocco’s singular Dar Ahlam (maisonsdesreves.com), is renowned for having some of the most creative (if also slightly bonkers) ideas in the world of deep-dive travel. For his latest venture, he’s lighted in Puglia – but only for a bit. 700,000 Heures (700000heures.com; Salento experience from €1,500 all-inclusive for two sharing) is a – in fact, the first – membership-based “wandering” hotel, which will see the magic Teyssier creates in Morocco transposed to a series of alluring locations and accommodations around the world, where he will curate immersive, ultra-private experiences for his guests. (After Italy will come Cambodia, Brazil and probably Japan, but spontaneity is part of 700,000 Heures’ USP.) The Italy project, in a palazzo in the Salento, is only in situ until November, but there are still some rooms left for those predisposed to try something entirely different.
