Does a luxury nature break in Brittany sound tempting? High in the canopy or on stilts, these 5 treehouses offer cosy, elegant comfort for a blissfully relaxing getaway!

In the blink of an eye

1. Among the leaves in the Vallée de Pratmeur

In the Morbihan, the Vallée de Pratmeur estate boasts 8 stunning tree lodges, all with a private spa on the terrace deck. Nestling 5 to 8 metres off the ground within their leafy surroundings, they are bathed in light thanks to their large bay windows… Gorgeous views over a scenic green valley. The spacious interiors are decked out in sublime comfort with cosy touches. Some have an upstairs bedroom complete with a balcony for soaking up the sunshine. Others have a four-poster bed in a single-storey loft. While the last is utterly unique: spend the night beneath a dome, as if sleeping out under the stars!

2. Romantic stay for two at Domaine d’Arvor

Close to the medieval city of Dinan, enter a universe entirely dedicated to lovers.  Here, calm and relaxation are the order of the day in this vast wooded area dotted with the most unusual accommodation. In the cosy Arvor&spa cabin, six metres above ground, you will take up residence in an ancient oak tree. Or perhaps you would prefer the superb decoration of the Gallic hut and its hot tub on the terrace with a view of the countryside. The champagne glasses are provided…

3. Scandi-chic at the Pertuis du Rofo

At the Pertuis de Rofo, the Nordic Lodge offers both space and comfort. This is not just a cabin, it’s a small house, with 37 square metres of floor space, perched eight metres high, overlooking the beautiful Vilaine Valley in southern Brittany. The cabin is reached via a 20m long wooden footbridge. The lounge area and two bedrooms are elegantly decorated with Scandinavian accents. As you enjoy the view from the 20 sq. m. terrace, nature really is at your fingertips!

4. A peaceful nest at La Grée des Landes

The Yves Rocher spa-cabin nestles five metres above the ground in the branches of a century-old cypress tree at La Gacilly. The spacious suite and terrace has a welcoming, comfortable and relaxing atmosphere. True to the spirit of La Grée des Landes, the cabin has an eco-friendly design based on wood from French forests. Between autumn and spring, this is a peaceful little retreat, ideal for couples, with just a starry sky and singing birds for company. From June to September, the cabin becomes a spa.

5. Cosy cocoon on stilts in the woods of Dihan

En Ty, which means ‘house’ in Breton, Neizh, ‘nest’, and now Dremmwel ‘horizon’, a luxury, wheelchair-friendly version: welcome to the most spacious and cosy treehouses at Dihan, a 25ha haven of greenery in the Morbihan. The interiors are graced with eco-friendly materials, décor by Breton designers and linen sheets for the queen-size bed that faces the wood-burning stove. The south-facing covered terrace deck is the perfect setting for a romantic dinner, rounded off by a dip in the timber jacuzzi. Meanwhile, down below, you may well catch a glimpse of deer and horses.
