About this listing
Gabrielle d'Estrées is a treehouse built on a 150 years old oak tree. It is located between the impressive Castle of Graville and the surrounding forest, in a quiet area over fields and woods.
It can host 2 people. There is comfy double bed, and a hammock on the south-oriented terrasse so you can enjoy the early morning sunlight. No electricity in the tree house ! Candles lights only, which makes for an old school, romantic atmosphere in the evening.
A dinner can be delivered to you upon request, light pic nic or gourmet hot meal, depending on your fancy. Around 9 am in the morning, a basket with your breakfast will be delivered at the bottom of your tree, tied up to a rope, ready to be pulled up and enjoyed on the terrasse.
Water bottles and a bucket provided for brushing your teeth and freshening up. Dried toilets in the treehouse.
Showers and regular toilets accessible during the day in the castle.
You will be totally cut from the rest of the world, surrounded bu birds singing, horses running around, squirels and rabbits in their morning quests and the sound of the wind in the leaves. A pretty unique experience.
The car ride from Paris will take you around 1 hour. The train ride is 47 minutes, and then you can either take a cab, ride your bikes or walk from the station (the castle is 6 kms from the train station, so around 45 minutes walk).
You have to bring with you a quilt cover or a duvet cover, a flash light (especially if you're planning to go out for dinner) and a charged cell phone. Check-in during the week (including saturday) are from 2 pm to 6 pm, and from 4 pm to 6 pm on sunday. Check out at 11 am.
Vous devez venir équipés d'une housse de couette ou d'un duvet, d'une lampe de poche et d'un téléphone portable chargé.
Nos arrivées se font tous les jours de 14h à 18h sauf le dimanche de 16h à 18 heures. Vous devez libérer à 11h le lendemain matin.
Diane was ongelofelijk vriendelijk en behulpzaam. De boomhut ligt op het terrein van een prachtig kasteel en is super gezellig. Overdag kan je in de hangmat liggen en 's nachts is het binnen romantisch vertoeven. Er staat een bed met een muskietennet en hangen overal lampionnetjes. 's Ochtends kan je je ontbijt omhoog halen, dit is ook dik in orde. Een zeer grote aanrader!
Een tip: neem oordopjes mee want door de wind maken de takken 's nachts vrij veel lawaai
Très agréable totalement dépaysant et atypique, proche de jolis coins à visiter bref un vrai retour à la nature à faire ou à refaire !!
Et la livraison du petit déjeuner au top
Our stay in the treehouse was unforgettable. We loved it! This is a once in a lifetime must do experience. The treehouse is amazing, comfortable, cosy and very tranquil. The breakfast and optional dinner were great too.
Diane was especially helpful in getting us to/from the treehouse and we were very grateful.
Bonjour nous avons passé un agréable séjour, la cabane était en harmonie avec la nature ,le petit déjeuner était copieux nous reviendrons avec grand plaisir à bientôt.
Our stay in the tree house was just amazing! We had a wonderful time. The staff was friendly and could give us all the information we needed in English as well. That was necessary, as we aren't able to speak French properly.
The dinner was delicious as well, really romantic with the candles and the basket who have to get up by rope. After we managed to light the fireplace, it was really nice being inside, listening to the birds or relaxing in the hammock.
Diane answered every question fast and friendly. Unfortunately, we didn't meet in person - maybe next time ;)
Thanks a lot, we will definitely come back!

The treehouse was one of the coolest experiences my girlfriend and I have ever experienced. The pictures don't really do the place justice. The scenery and animals add so much more. Not to mention it is very romantic with all the candles they provide, the fire, and meals they offer. We were worried about being very cold but the furnace in the treehouse is more than enough. There was never a point when we were cold even with it being around 30 degrees Fahrenheit outside, just make sure you keep the fire running. I highly recommend this place. It's exactly as advertised and more. It's a wonderful escape and definitely one of the highlights of my trip.

About the Host, Diane
Welcome to our wonderful forest! You will be totally cut from the rest of the world, surrounded bu birds singing, horses running around, squirrels and rabbits in their morning quests and the sound of the wind in the leaves. A pretty unique experience whether you chose to stay in the Tree house, the Roulotte or the Fuste.
