Outside Berceau treehouse

General

  • Eco-friendly treehouses in a peaceful and mature 27-hectare woodland
  • Easy access to the Avenue Verte traffic-free walking/cycling trail
  • Breakfast hampers included, plus option of booking wellness massages

Fancy a Swiss Family Robinson-style stay among a mature 27-hectare woodland in Normandy? Sorted. In the centre of Upper Normandy half an hour of Rouen, Les Cabanes de Fontaine-Châtel is in a forestred setting within easy reach of outdoorsy activities such as strolling and cycling around the department's 1,400 kilometres of trails.

Accommodation here is high in the trees in swish, comfy and eco-friendly treetop cabins, each uniquely built to fit the the trees supporting it. The treehouses are all totally off-grid for proper treetop retreats, but the owners have added a sanitary block to the site so you don't have to forego hot showers and flushing toilets. And while some huts can be reached only by clambering up a ladder, some have been designed to be easily accessible to those with reduced mobility.

To preserve the peaceful vibe, the site can be reached only on foot or by bike from the parking area. No cars means that this peaceful place is a tiptop spot for wildlife watchers too: look below your treehouse terrace and you're likely to tick wild boars, deer, squirrels, pheasants and other birds off your wildlife spotting list. You can take forest strolls and cycles for leisure time on site too, and when you return to base book yourself in for a hot stone or relaxation massage.

Breakfast is included when you book a stay here: simply hoist up your hamper when it's delivered in the morning. Dinners can be booked with at least seven days' notice.

Please note

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

No cars/motorbikes by the pitch/unit. All cars must be parked in the designated area.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

A gem of a find and well recommended!27/08/2019

  • Grand Hêtre treehouse (adults only - families not allowed)

  • Liked: 

    Very friendly owner, remote location and great distances between treehouses. We had 2 treehouses. The first was Drakkar which slept 3 - my Wife and 2 younger children. The second was Haute Roche for myself and 15 year old Son.
    You must be prepared for the noise of a forest a night, but this is part of the attraction - no wifi, but the calls of owls, deer and other wildlife!
    Breakfast is brought to you around 9am, for you to winch up to your balcony - bliss!

    Disliked:

From the manager...

Thank you for your very kind comment.
We were very happy to welcome you in our cabins.
We hope to see you again.

Eduoard was an amazing host. Nothing was too much trouble …25/07/2019

    Eduoard was an amazing host. Nothing was too much trouble to him and he was polite, friendly and efficient at all times. The Robin des Bois cabin is perfect or younger children - we stayed there with our 4 year old and it was perfectly fine. We left everything behind us at the car park and enjoyed getting back to life's simple pleasures. Highly recommended. Gave 5 stars for everything, despite having stayed in plenty of places with better facilities, location, etc., because you know what you're getting yourself in for when you book this place. The Hilton it is not. It is arguably better though.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing that the hosts could affect. I would recommend bringing bug repellent as there were plenty on the way to and from the cabin. Not so bad once up in the cabin itself though.

From the manager...

Merci de nous avoir fait part de votre retour.
En effet, nous accueillons nos hôtes comme des amis car nous espérons qu'ils vont effectivement le devenir !
En cette saison, les taons sont présents au sol, mais heureusement ni dans les cabanes ni sur les terrasses. Il est donc souhaitable de se prémunir contre eux même si, souvent, ils ne sont pas trop agressifs ; seulement par temps d'orage.
Espérant avoir la joie de vous revoir.
Edouard

La tranquillité est au bout de la forêt !
En effet, la promenade est sympa mais elle se mérite ;-)
Effectivement il vaut mieux ne pas venir trop chargé ; l'expérience n'en sera que meilleure.
A vous revoir.

Directions


Local attractions

There's plenty of outdoorsy stuff to do around here: test your steel among high ropes courses, ziplines and Tarzan swings of the big tree climbing park in Préaux, within 20 minutes' drive, or try a trip on horseback from one of two riding centres over in Mauquenchy. For water-themed activity, the sands and sea of Dieppe are less than an hour away and several pools are within 20 minutes' drive.

Over 1,400 kilometres of trails network the Seine-Maritime department, and the site owners highly recommend the Avenue Verte, a former railway line between Dieppe and Paris transformed into a path for non-motorised vehicles. Bring a bike or take a simple stroll; car parks and picnic areas have been set up along the route for breaks and feeds.

For something to keep the boys and girls on their best behaviour, the fairytale-themed family attractions, petting zoo and sky-high rides of Parc du Bocasse theme park are around 25 minutes' drive from Fontaine, and animals such as cranes, flamingos, monkeys, kangaroos and wallabies are over to see in Clères's zoo.
