Ever wanted to build a tree house but never did? Now here is your chance to stay in 1 of 4 rather magnificent ones. Orion B&B, just 15 minutes walk from St-Paul de Vence in the South of France, is your very own Jungle Book escape for 2, 3 or 4 nights at a time (sorry no bookings for just 1 night!). It is evident from the love and attention that has been poured into these tree houses that Orion B&B is more than just a hobby for creative owner Diane. The wooden tree houses that make up this small boutique hotel are surrounded by nature and the twitter of birds, the frog chorus and the swoop of owls. There is no place for high heels or designer clothes here. This Chic Retreat is meant to be an escape from the material things that tie us to our every day lives. This is a real experience, simple, utterly charming and totally mesmerising. Look out for the new Yoga room coming in 2013.
Relax in a hammock high in the tree tops, sooth away your worries in the naturally filtered pebble-edged pool or take a nap in the shade whilst listening to the birds and bees. New for winter is a cocooning Scandinavian experience; enjoy a sauna before dipping into the refreshing natural pool.
Sauna 50 for 2 for a two hours session
Massage 65 for 1 for a one hour massage with essential oil Yoga lesson 50 for one or two for one hour course Gourmet picnic 80 for 2 including a glass of champagne
There is no restaurant here but there is everything you need to make a picnic or there are a couple of restaurants just 2 minutes walk away as well as plenty to choose from in St-Paul de Vence. A delicious breakfast is served every morning and there are tea and coffee making facilities in each tree house.
