Rémi, the owner, is a master - he’s poured into Châteaux dans les Arbres all his skill, passion and eight years of experience building treehouses over the length and breadth of France. The three at Châteaux dans les Arbres are designed to echo the architecture of the traditional French châteaux. They’ve been a year in the making at the headquarters of Nid Perché, Rémi’s company down the road, and are born from a desire to create unusual and luxurious spaces to stay, all while preserving the environment. With the rolling French countryside of the Dordogne surrounding you, a chef on hand if you need one, panoramic views, and the rustle of the wind in the trees - you’re in for a unique, and amazing, stay.

Things to do
At Châteaux dans les arbres
An amazing hot tub on each terrace means you can soak in the bubbles and look up into the trees! There's also a ground-level swimming pool that's shared between the three treehouses, if you fancy a more energetic dip.
There's the whole of the 11 hectare park to explore on foot. You can hire bikes on site, play table tennis or pétanque, or just enjoy the terrace and survey your temporary home from on high!
There is a pool for guests of all three treehouses, accessible during open hours. Please supervise your children when swimming.
Outdoors and active
There are lovely walks around. There are plenty of active things to do out and about in this beautiful, rural part of the world. Take a canoe down the Dordogne, wander through the trees...there's also horse riding, a nearby lake for swimming (if the pool isn't enough!), tennis, hot air ballooning, and waterskiing.
Places to visit
Guided tours can be organised of the local region focusing on culture, cuisine, or wine tasting. Discover the medieval cities of Monpazier, Beaumont, Issigeac, Limeuil and explore the historic towns and villages of the region for yourself. There are many fascinating châteaux and abbeys locally, all worth a visit... look for Monbazillac, Biron, Castelnaud, les Milandes, and Hautefort to begin with (sound familiar? The treehouses are named after famous local châteaux.)
Incredible cave paintings can be found at Lascaux and Les Eyzies - unmissable! The paper mill at Couze, a visit to Brantôme, the Venise of the Perigord, or the Aquarium at Bugue would be great for a rare rainy day out.
Meet your hosts
The Puybéton estate is set in eleven hectares of park and woodland. A private house, and the three treehouses constructed on the site of an old château, are the only accommodation on the estate.
Rémi has been building treehouses with his company Nid Perché for eight years. These treehouses are the result of his desire to create beautiful, unusual places to stay whilst taking care of the environment.
Wildlife & environment
Rémi uses locally-sourced, untreated wood to build his treehouses and these have a very low carbon footprint - they were put together just down the road at Nid Perché. The insulation is made of wood fibres, and waste water is treated using a microfiltration system. Ecological cleaning products are provided and recycling facilities are available.
In terms of wildlife, the estate is peacefully populated with deer, wild boar, birds, squirrels and rabbits, and you can walk amongst the ancient oak, chestnut, hornbeam, ash, and walnut trees...
