Looking for a holiday in France with a difference this year? Imagine something totally out of the norm, perched high above the ground and canopied in leafy branches… Why not head back to nature (literally) and book yourself in an amazing treehouse in Eure et Loir? That’s a simple way to escape the everyday and spend a couple of cosy nights in the boughs of a big tree with your loved-one.
Nestled in a secluded area of the Perche in Eure et Loir, les Cabanes du Bois Landry tree houses feature everything you could possibly need for the ultimate romantic break in the midst of nature. You’ll be greeted by Bertrand, the friendly owner who will make you feel at home instantly.
Wake to birdsong, take morning coffee on the deck with views stretching out below and savour a hearty home-made breakfast of local treats delivered in a basket, so you don't even need to drag yourself out of bed. You'll never want to leave, trust us!
An aromatic herb garden in permaculture farming
Let’s stay in this much-needed bubble of calm and explore the Jardin Solstice, an oasis of peace and serenity. You'll find many aromatic and medicinal plants grown in the permaculture way. If you book on time, you can take part in educational workshops or training courses to discover plants and preparation techniques for herbal teas, hydrolats and syrups exclusively made from natural ingredients.
For horse lovers
No horse-riding fan will want to miss the chance to saddle up in the Perche! For experienced riders as well as total newbies, local equestrian facilities such as les écuries La Licorne or the Ferme équestre de Montécôt provide wonderful opportunities to explore the forest de Montécôt and the vast countryside bursting with vivid and unexplored natural beauty. You can even ride to the château de Villebon, a sumptuous medieval castle made of red stone. Enjoy the view!
The Pursuit of pleasure
In the nearby village of Thiron-Gardais, a culinary experience awaits at the restaurant La Forge, where passionate chef treats your taste buds to fine and authentic French gastronomy. Epicureans, you will enjoy the soundest sleep when you retreat to your treehouse after dinner… Sweet dreams!
