If you’ve ever thought about going to France, this castle tree house hotel just might give you the push you've needed to hop on a plane. There are four castles in total, collectively called Châteaux Dans Les Arbres, each comfortably nestled into a forest about 160 km outside of Bordeaux.
Although its exterior resembles a traditional castle—and requires you to cross a moat before entering—the treehouse is environmentally conscious and made with sustainable wood.
In contrast to the exterior, the inside is Asian-inspired and includes decorative ironwork, minimalistic decorating, aged wood, and a bathroom that's more like a day spa. The large windows make the claw-foot tub the perfect place to relax and soak in a little nature, while the walk-in shower provides convenience.
Despite its natural surroundings, this mini-castle is built for function and contains all the modern-day conveniences you could ever want—including WiFi. There's also a full kitchen containing an oven, stove, microwave, dishwasher, and refrigerator. The natural wood and smooth grey surfaces continue throughout the space and the windows let in lots of natural sunlight.
The castle boasts panoramic views from its wrap-around terrace, and the region's lush countryside is the ideal view to take in while soaking in the outdoor hot tub. Perched in the chestnut and oak treetops, you'll start to feel like you're part of the local wildlife.
Each castle is luxuriously charming; they were individually designed with magical whimsy at heart, inspired by the architecture of nearby castles of Dordogne. When you’re finished living your “happily ever after” fantasy, be sure to listen for the gentle whisper of leaves in the late night breeze.
