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 3 pm to 6 pm, and from 3 pm to 5 pm on sunday. Check out at 11 am.
