Full of beaming pastel colours, satisfyingly stylish symmetry and quirky prettiness, the worlds within Wes Anderson’s films are visually delicious. From the twee island of Moonrise Kingdom to the rickety and charming Indian cross-country train of The Darjeeling Limited, Anderson’s sets are very much the sort of places you’d actually like to visit.

Anderson’s new film Asteroid City is out in a week or so (read our review here) and, to celebrate, Airbnb has put together a list of rentals that perfectly fit his aesthetic. In other words, you can essentially stay in your very own Wes Anderson-esque set-piece. Tremendously exciting stuff, we know.

The rentals in Airbnb’s selection range from retro caravans in New Zealand and isolated islands in Norway to a delightfully gauche pad in Madrid. They’re all, as you’d expect, extremely colourful, kitsch abodes. Here are our faves – plus, of course, links in case you fancy booking one for yourself.
