Treehouse summary

Our is not a classical hotel. Instead, it is a mix of the natural accommodation and the authentic creation.

Leave your car and your stress in the parking lot and ramble about the little paths that lead you to your room. Be prepared to be surprised!

Here, no industrial lodges or huts, but an ecological architecture in alliance with the surrounding nature. Unique artisanal buildings, scattered in a wild hillside, they are as close as possible to the trees, the granite rocks and the creek. Wildlife and animals are just one step close.


Treehouse description

The lodges suite (Chrysalis) is more original with every convenience. This incredible nine-meter cocoon room is organized in two floors with a terrace in the tree.

On the ground floor, a bathroom with the Italian shower ; Upstairs, an alcove bedroom with a bed for two adults and an extra bed for children, which is extended to the terrace.

Your natural experience : Fall asleep as a caterpillar and wake as a butterfly !

" What a strange machine ", exclaimed my grandson… " A beautiful Fabergé egg " suggested a Parisian friend… " Chrysalis "… will titillate your imagination !

Scales, patiently woven by the able hands of our carpenter sculptors, adorn this elegant structure set between the trees.

You hesitate a moment going through the doorway… the nest placed in the branch makes you wonder. Then your gaze adjusts and you discover the imaginative and authentic bathroom.

At the top of the winding staircase, the terrace mingles with the treetops. You go out and contemplate the view over the valley. Or you decide to plunge directly into the softness of your bed set in an alcove of shimmering colors.

Take your time… tomorrow you’ll be a butterfly !
