Treehouse Colonel Hathi is perfect for a romantic weekend for two or a family getaway.
Of the 4 tree houses at Orion B&B, Colonel Hathi enjoys the highest viewpoint with a beautiful view on the village of Saint-Paul de Vence. It is also the biggest, with 2 bedrooms over 2 storeys and enough space for 5 people!
Colonel Hathi is a fully heated and insulated duplex treehouse with 2 double and 1 single bed. Measuring 35 square meters, it is quite spacious – and that is excluding the large 6-square meter balcony out front that has a splendid view of the grounds and the 35 sq.m. terrace down below for family get-togethers in the shade during the hottest hours of the day.
It has all the amenities guests need for a satisfying and comfortable stay. Inside, there are two double beds and a single bed complete with linens, a bathroom with a flushing toilet, hot and cold showers, a heated towel rack and towels, and even a hairdryer. On the terrace, there is a hammock, a sofa, chairs and table.
For people who can't wait till breakfast or need to be able to make their cuppa at any point during the day, a kettle with a selection of teas and coffee is provided.
As there are no kitchens in the tree houses all guests have access to a shared refrigerator and a microwave oven. Crockery and cutlery is at your disposal so you can prepare yourself a little picnic to enjoy in the garden.
For those who want to get in touch with friends and family back home, there is a free-WiFi connection in the breakfast area and in the garden.

About the area
Bagheera is within walking distance to the quaint medieval village of Saint-Paul-de-Vence which is situated in a region that is teeming with tradition and history.
Therefore, there are numerous museums guests can visit in the area such as the locally known La Fondation Maeght à Saint-Paul de Vence, the Picasso Museum in Antibes, and the Le Musée d'Art Moderne à Nice – to mention a few.
In addition to those noted places, there are also various festivals guests can take part in like the Le Festival de Cannes, the Les Concerts du Cloître in Nice, and the Juan-les-Pins Jazz Festival.
So for those who are fond of sightseeing and getting a taste of local French culture, this is the place to be.
However, if you are more inclined to go exploring, you can visit nearby national parks – such as the Le Parc National du Mercantour and the La Réserve des Monts d'Azur among many others – and indulge in exciting outdoor activities like canyoneering.
But if you only wish to relax, you can simply hang around your treehouse or check out the eco-friendly spa on the grounds. In there, you can get a massage, keep warm at the sauna, or swim in the pool.

Highlight of our holiday
Unique spot with a special atmosphere. After some hectic driving around Italy and France, this place felt very peaceful. The kids loved the swimmingpool and the little frogs in the garden. The sound of crickets in the warm night helped us fall asleep. Breakfast was perfect and the threehouse had everything a 'luxury jungle hut' should have. The village on the hill is great, you have to make sure to make time to visit it. It was a wonderful experience.

What an experience!
What a beautiful surroundings! A wonderful treehouse . Lovely pool. Nice breakfast area. Everything very organised. We had a lovely time. Something else than a normal hotelroom. In real life it looked even better than on the website.
