10. A floating house in Joanopolis, Brazil

9. This mid-century A-frame chalet in California, US
Ninth on the list is a wintry shot taken in Riverside County, California. It's taken from a cosy adults-only hideaway in the forests of Idyllwild. This private mountain retreat is as secluded as they come. A wood-burning fireplace, floor-to-ceiling windows and a wraparound deck make it the perfect place to soak in the fresh air and enjoy the views of Marion Mountain.
Dh931 per night, for up to four people.
8. Solo travellers' 'Window to the Duomo', Italy
The Florence Cathedral or "Duomo" takes centre stage in this image captured by @girlgoneabroad. It's taken from inside an exceptionally well-located artist's studio.

7. Darby House in upstate New York, US
This is a shot of Darby House, an A-frame home tucked away in four hectares of woods alongside the Delaware River. Two hours from New York City, this woodland escape is the ideal place to retreat from city life. It has two bedrooms – guests need to climb up into the loft to reach the second one – and a cathedral-esque grand living room overlooking the woods. In summertime, guests can make use of the supplied tubes and life jackets to go exploring on the river.
Dh1,451 a night, sleeps up to four guests.
6. This 19th-century converted schoolhouse, New York, US
It's all about the interiors in this converted school house in Kingston. A shot of the early 19th-century building has amassed 43,757 double-taps on Instagram, and it's easy to see why.
