On the edge of the Compiègne Forest, perched up in the trees are around ten cabins of different shapes and sizes. To get to some of them, you have to climb a latter, others require you to cross a rope bridge! Christophe and Agathe began this adventure a few years ago, building on their experience in the local tree-climbing theme park. Guests are spoilt for choice among the prettily furnished cabins with double beds and/or bunk-beds, dining areas and panoramic terraces. The sanitary facilities are rather more rudimentary in the spirit of cabin life, with washbasins with 5-litre water tanks and earth-closet toilets. Showers are available in the reception building a few hundred metres away, which also makes a good refuge in a storm or in high winds. The cabins have dreamy names: "Le Clé des Champs", "Hissé Haut", "La Cachette" and "Toi et Moi" and are ideal for couples, groups of friends or families. Breakfast is hoisted up to your cabin in a basket each morning. In the evenings, should you wish to dine in intimate surroundings, perched in your tree amidst the rustling leaves, you can order a country-style, vegetarian or gourmet hamper. It's like a childhood dream, with excellent environmental credentials which will delight those seeking strong sensations. Not to be missed!

Once across the bridge over the river, you find yourself in the depths of the countryside. Surrounded by stone walls, the “Ferme des Isles” is hidden away from prying eyes and has a lower courtyard filled with flowers that run on into the meadows. In the distance, sheep, goats, donkeys, hens and ducks wander around freely.
