La Cabane du Perche - Treehouse in Normandy

Last cache: 18:44:03, Friday 09 October 2015

Cabane du Perche

Suitable for children of all ages

Not suitable for pets

Two children can be accommodated but pets are not allowed

Spend a few days in this magnificent and surprisingly roomy treehouse in cider country, with your own private hot tub just below

Up in the branches, on the northern edge of the huge forest of the Perche natural park, this comfortable treehouse cabin is not just somewhere to sleep but a place to be in its own right. Guests have been known not to come down for days. Fans of quirky furniture will love it: it's created to the owners' unique design. The shower and basin are made from recycled wine barrels; the seats and bedside tables whittled out of apple wood from the orchard, and the beds are wooden too - a double and two bunks (one just child-size). Bread, milk, and cheese are sourced from a network of local farms - but this is cider country, so what better to enjoy on the terrace? It's great for a picnic, as there's no kitchen, but shops and restaurants are just a few kilometres away. 

Breakfast is served outside or in, and with proper insulation and heating you'll be cosy year round. Then of course there's the fabulous hot tub at the base of the tree, exclusive to treehouse guests so you can hire it whenever you like. It's easy to get to from the UK with Eurostar to Paris or a ferry to the ports of Normandy. Apart from walks in the woods, the region is full of historic houses, manors and abbeys. If you're feeling active, horse riding is very popular, or take a carriage ride in the forest - an unforgettable bit of fun.

**Please note the hot tub can be used for an additional €45 per day. This is payable directly to the owners and does not go through Canopy & Stars.**

Our guests say...

A beautiful treehouse in a lovely setting. Comfy bed and unique shower. Lovely hot tub and pleasant hosts. We included dinner and a bottle of wine, dinner was lovely oven roasted vegetables and roast chicken legs. Dessert a white chocolate mousse. Breakfast was also delivered- a selection of jams and baguette and boiled eggs, muesli and yogurt. We were surprised not to have crossiants as bread and jam is a little basic.



We stayed for 3 nights. The tree house is in an idyllic spot for some quality R&R, with the added benefit of an hot tub to while away a few hours.



We had the most wonderful stay in the Tree house. It was peaceful, relaxing and comfortable which is exactly what we needed. The hosts were very polite and helpful and the breakfast and Racelette were yummy! We really enjoyed the hot tub as well. Thank you so much : )



A delight. In a wonderful setting with amazing views - thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the terrace with a glass of wine enjoying the tranquillity. Marie-Noelle was a very charming and helpful host. Breakfast was delicious with freshly home baked bread from the neighbouring farm. We struggled slightly with using the composting toilet purely because its just alien not to be able to flush - but that is probably just us not being as adaptable as we once were!



"We give it a 10 out of 10! Great hosts, lovely location, yummy breakfast... who could ask for more? Staying in a treehouse was a childhood dream fulfilled, so nothing at all to complain. Great home jams were the best in the whole of France!"



"It was absolutely fantastic. The treehouse was really beautiful and comfortable, the setting was serene and peaceful and the hosts were wonderfully generous and kind. We didn't want to leave and still miss La Cabane."



"Everything was fantastic from the entrance and first view of the treehouse (was a surprise for my wife on our honeymoon), the welcome from the owners, the food that they cooked for our evening meal and the comforts and utilities within the treehouse."



"Beautiful setting, peaceful region and lovely hosts. Best thing - the warm cosy feeling sitting on the terrace watching the sun rise and set."



"Cabane du Perche is lovely. The tree house is well designed and thought out, the beds blissfully comfortable, the location beautiful, and the owners friendly and well-organised. We would willingly go back to stay for longer."



"It was amazingly beautiful and tranquil. The owners were very welcoming and helpful and the breakfast simply delicious! The shower in an old wine barrel a wonderfully different yet very comfortable experience. The beds are super comfy, too. And let's not forget the woodpecker in the afternoon!"



"Very much enjoyed our stay in the treehouse. It was excellent. The entire place was beautiful, tasteful and immaculate. The location was idyllic and tranquil. Host very helpful and easygoing."



"We had an amazing time in a spotless treehouse that was located in a beautiful part of France. The host were so nice and helpful and the only issue was that we had to leave after only one night. Next time we will stay for a minimum of three nights so we can properly explore the woods and countryside and relax. The children (6 and 3) loved their bunk beds and we loved the overall experience."



"Fantastic stay. Accommodation was spectacular and our hosts couldn't have been more accommodating. they even lent us their bike when ours had a puncture. Fantastic location for children."



"Really enjoyed it. Lovely situation. Well appointed, great shower, clean, new and very well presented. Hosts were lovely and provided good information and fab breakfast on the terrace."



"We had a marvelous stay in this idyllic location! The tree house is beautifully crafted with a great deal of attention to detail, fantastic for both couples or family alike. Relaxing, peaceful, magical! A delicious breakfast served on the veranda of the tree house for a great ending to a stay we wish did not end so soon!"



We had a really lovely time. The tree house was amazing!! bigger than expected and set in the most beautiful surroundings. The composting toilet was a constant source of amazement for our 8yr old daughter!!! Our hosts were very welcoming and helpful. Breakfast was ample and delicious. The Perche region is a very beautiful part of France with lots to do and see. We will be going back some time in the future!!!
