Unusual camping accommodation

In the category of unusual camping accommodation, cabins offer a variety of choices to suit all tastes. Whether you're looking for total immersion in nature or a more comfortable stay, there's a cabin for you.

Tree houses are perfect for those looking to reconnect with nature. Nestled high in the branches, they offer uninterrupted views of the surrounding area.

For a more comfortable stay, opt for a wood cabin. These accommodations, often equipped with a wood-burning stove, offer the perfect balance between comfort and the experience of nature.

Campsites also offer glamping accommodation. These perched cabins and other unusual accommodation are ideal for original holidays.

Finally, some campsites offer floating cabins, caravans, yurts, barrels, tipis, huts, cocoons or bubbles. Each of these types of accommodation offers a unique experience, making for a truly original holiday.

The tree house, an atypical experience

The tree house is an accommodation option that perfectly combines the unusual and the ecological. Perched several metres above the ground, these wooden structures blend harmoniously into the landscape, offering holidaymakers an almost intimate contact with nature.

This unusual accommodation is available at many campsites across France. Whether you're in Brittany, Provence, Ile de France or Occitania, you can enjoy a night or a stay in this type of accommodation. Some campsites even offer more original accommodation, such as perched cabins, gypsy caravans or teepees.

Staying in a tree house is a unique experience, whether it's for a romantic weekend, a family holiday or a break with friends. It's a chance to disconnect from the modern world and get closer to nature. It's a chance to rediscover your adventurous spirit and take on the role of William Sawyer, Peter Pan or Hansel & Gretel.

Despite their traditional appearance, these cabins are often well equipped. They generally have simple comforts, but enough to ensure a pleasant stay (bed, dry toilet, kitchen area, etc.). Some even offer top-of-the-range services, such as a panoramic terrace or breakfast delivered by basket in the morning!
