An unusual experience perched on the tops of the trees, in the heart of Picardy, tested by the GreenGeekette. It's true that experience just 1 hour from Paris, makes you want to go relax - as what it is not always necessary to go away.

What struck us in his narrative: "receive the small breakfast in a nice wicker basket at the foot of the hut, we gotta get with the help of a pulley system, it was super nice." "You pull on the rope, we pick up the basket and hop!"

Responsible stance

Although the breakfast is "delivered", the dishes are hard (reusable).
Possibility of a packed lunch as for dinner (€60) composed of local produce, with vegetarian option

And according to the website:
-The construction of the cabins fully respects the tree which welcomes them. The health of Oaks is followed by a forestry expert and the cabin may be adapted as the tree grows. The wood used for construction are the larch and douglas, rotproof natural materials requiring no chemical treatment.
-They use a natural purification of water innovative system for the treatment of the Nordic Baths that work as well without any chemicals!
-ecological products (crockery, no bleached coffee filters product disinfectant...).
-The selective sorting of waste is done and explained at the beginning of stay: cardboard, plastic, glass and aluminum, each his basket - almost the entire part in circuits of revaluation!
-Hourglasses in the showers are set up to educate the guest water saving and the toilets are low.
-The facilities are of low consumption (led, etc...) and many extra lighting are powered by solar panels.
-a Charter discount on arrival allows everyone to become more efficient.
