If you’re looking for a holiday hideaway, and don’t mind keeping things cosy, there are plenty of tiny homes available that won’t break the bank – provided you have a place to put them, that is.

These cabins are an easy escape from the city, with many designed to help visitors immerse themselves in nature, and some even arriving pre-built.

We’ve put together 10 tiny homes you can buy for under €100k (or approximately $112k), ranging from quickly assembled cabins aimed at the more nomadic, to eco-friendly huts that let would-be owners live off-grid.

ARK Shelter, from €53k

Via ARK Shelter

This prefab cabin is designed to blend into any terrain, and relies only on rainwater and wind for power. Its floor-to-ceiling windows bring in plenty of natural light to the tiny home, and while its plywood interiors may be sparse, the hut is delivered fully furnished.

Jyubako, by Kengo Kuma, from €28k

Via Kengo Kuma Architects

This mobile home is a chance to own a piece by one of the world’s leading architects – Kengo Kuma – but with a realistic price tag. Designed for Japanese outdoor company Snow Peak, the boxy wood-panelled house has ultra-minimal interiors and fold-out window coverings, and is aimed at those that want to get up close and personal with nature. Currently in development, these tiny homes will be on sale within the next year.

It’s no surprise that the reigning kings of minimal, Muji, have applied their stripped-back aesthetic to this prefab tiny home. Covered in blackened cedar, and designed to fit into any landscape, the hut has plywood-lined interiors and sliding glass doors. Measuring just 9 sq m, it certainly makes for a cosy cabin, which the company says fits between a permanent home and a holiday hideaway.

It features a glazed wall, a single living space and a mezzanine sleeping area with just enough room for a bed. What this tiny home lacks in luxuries it makes up for in possibilities.

Minim House, from €63.5k

Minim Micro home

Measuring just 25 sq m, the Minim House can be ordered with or without wheels, and is aimed at those that want a hand in personalising their micro home.

If you really can’t bear to leave the city, this micro home would work just as well on a roof terrace as it would in the countryside.
