Les Cabanes des Bois Landry in France is a retreat that definitely taps into that sense of wonder and adventure that ensnared the minds of our childhoods and led to dreams of living in treehouses! 15 different treehouses have been built among the forest here and guests select where they want to stay based on how they would like to access their temporary home; via a staircase, ladder, elevated walkway, or zipline. It is made clear which treehouses may suit which guests – some are not for children, some inspire more feelings of vertigo than others, and some are not recommended for pregnant ladies, so be sure to read the website thoroughly before booking.
Walking around Les Cabanes des Bois Landry and seeing all the wonderful, unique treehouses with their various rope ladders, suspended walkways, and outstanding craftsmanship is like being on a film set, though the most tranquil one you could imagine! The more daring guests will want to clamber into each and everyone to see what they look like, to experience the different heights among the trees, and perhaps simply to challenge one’s nerves. The harder ones to get to require the use of a harness as the rope ladder is somewhat less than a solid construction! Some of the walkways to get to some of the highest treehouses are also only just wide enough for one person. So those that do not enjoy looking down from a great height will want to give these a miss.
It is hard to emphasize enough how fantastic it feels to climb up into one of the highest treehouses at Les Cabanes des Bois Landry and simply look at the view. Though it sounds like a quick thing, guests will find that this incredible, unique perspective, plus the feeling of accomplishment gained from the mode of access, is quite entrancing. Just imagine entering your home via a 50m zipline, 10 meters above the forest floor! A holiday spent here is one that will not soon be forgotten.
Rates for a night at Les Cabanes des Bois Landry starts from €150.
