Reservations for an 18m² cottage made entirely from chocolate will soon open on  accommodation giant Booking.com's website. This home sweet home was designed and crafted by famed artisan chocolatier Jean-Luc Decluzeau and is located on the outskirts of Paris, France.

Some 1.5 tons of chocolate were used to build the cottage, which sleeps four and boasts features such as a kitchen and a fireplace. It even has a garden with a white chocolate duck pond and a chocolate flower bed.

Thankfully, the experience won't just be a life-sized temptation for chocoholics, as guests will be able to tuck into certain objects during their stay.

The chocolate cottage is located in L'Orangerie Ephémère in the gardens of the Cité de la Céramique in Sèvres, on the outskirts of Paris.

Reservations open at 10am on September 19 and 26 at booking.com, for the nights of October 5 and 6 respectively; the cost is €50 (about R867) per night.

Those who don't manage to book a stay can visit the chocolate cottage during an open afternoon, held October 7.
