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 bachelor/bachelorette parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

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

    Brilliant back to nature night. Took us both back to the good old days of camping with very limited facilities . Living more with nature is something everyone should experience at least a few times in their lives and this was a chance to do so . Listening to only the sounds of nature at night the boots of owls and the scrambling of wildlife .cabin was just a little bit of comfort for us oldies with a few aches and pains which we try hard to ignore and it was the first time we have every had a great continental breakfast delivered on a rope. The owner and his staff (pauline) could not have been more supportive especially when it was discovered some unfortunates had stolen chairs etc from the balcony It is a real shame that such individual exist even in the middle of woodsm

    Disliked: 

    Very little provided you are not expecting modern day facilities. Perhaps would have been nice to have had some glasses and cups on site and possibly some larger candles as even with the supplied lamp it was still a bit too dark inside even in the daytime. Trollies for each cabin to carry any luggage might have been better than a wheelbarrow shared by everyone

    We loved our stay in our very own treehouse. The surroundings are beautiful, the treehouse is magical and our host was a true gentleman. I couldn't recommend it enough! And getting your breakfast delivered and winched up in the morning was the icing on the cake.

    We loved the adventure and the attention to detail at Les Cabanes de Fontaine, our children 14, 14 & 12yrs old, were genuinely excited to do something that was so much fun and different to the standard holiday accommodation.
    The staff were fantastic and although we tried very hard with our French language skills, they were brilliant when we came unstuck, and were very friendly. We already have plans to return and try out some of the other tree-houses too. The tree houses were well built and felt warm and secure. The breakfast was wonderful too, especially as we were able to sit on the balcony in the woods enjoying a fabulous hot chocolate, coffee and fresh baking. Would highly recommend this experience to everyone, a great escape.

    The staff were friendliest ever encountered. They were patient and funny and spoke good English (even though they didn't think so themselves). They were very thorough in their explanation of the equipment and had us practice with the ziplines so we were properly prepared.
    We had rented the highest cabin 'les teriers', which was 10 meters above ground, so it was good that they paid so much attention to safety.
    Not all cabins are this high, there are also lower cabins with easy access for those less able to go around on ziplines, rope bridges and ladders.
    The terrain is huge and the cabins are spaced so far apart that you really don't notice that there are other people on the terrain at all. It feels very private and secluded, an oasis of relaxation. All that you can hear is the birds and the animals going about their business in the forest.
    We had ordered dinner to be served in the cabin (the dinner and breakfast as delivered with a cable that you have to hoist up to your cabin). The dinner was excellent, a three course meal with a side platter of bread that was still hot even after sitting in the box for an hour. It was an uniquely cool experience to eat a lovely hot meal in your private tree cabin. One thing to keep in mind if you want dinner is that you have to let them know your choice of meal one week in advance of your stay.
    Breakfast was excellent as well, baguette, chocolate rolls and an assortment of spreads for the bread. For drink there was hot tea and fruit juice.
    The terrain surrounding the cabins is lovely. We went for a long stroll there in the undisturbed and quiet forest. They have even made little plaques with information about the trees and animals there.
    One word of advise: If you have to pay for dinner, bring cash. The property does not accept cards, so if you don't have cash you'll have to drive to the nearest town (about 15 minutes) to get to a cash machine.
    We will certainly come back here some day!

    L'accueil. Le propriétaire est très aimable et les formalités d'accueil sont rapides et claires. Nous avons adoré le charme de la forêt même sous la pluie. Notre cabane déjà découverte il y a 7 ans à garde tout son atmosphère et à enchantée nos petits enfants. Ils ont adoré la terrasse le lever du panier pour le petit déjeuner, l'atmosphère intime avec les bougies allumées le soir et surtout dormir dans une cabane. Ils ne tarissent pas d'éloges sur leur cabane et d'ailleurs ils veulent revenir l'an prochain .

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.
