We got this request from a couple, who are looking for a romantic getaway in nature.
My boyfriend and I have discovered your web site and were interested in renting for a week a tree house during the summer (most likely in August or the second week of July). Could you tell me some locations and their prices?
Thanks a lot
To respond to this request, let’s set out to discover the most spectacular and eco-friendly tree houses in Italy, from Piedmont to Calabria. Let’s take a closer look at five beautiful facilities built among the branches of plants, which stand out for their attention to sustainability and which seem perfect for the needs of our eco-travelers.
1. Piedmont: the tree houses of Giardino dei semplici
This beautiful eco-friendly property is a dream come true for both adults and children. It is located in the province of Cuneo, among leafy and green branches. Its tree houses “Quercia” and “Toulipier” are two small nests overlooking the Langhe, suspended between earth and sky and perfectly camouflaged in nature. Love for nature is a philosophy of life of the owners Maria and Beatrice translated into hospitality. A garden full of flowers and plants of all kinds surrounds the tree suites. Both are equipped with every comfort and service; in the morning breakfast is served through a basket hanging from a tree branch.
These two tree houses are designed to rediscover the special feeling that is created between man and nature.
Price: from 180€ per night for 2 people with breakfast based on organic and local products.
2. Umbria: Awen tree house
Awen tree house is on the border between Umbria and Tuscany, just two kilometers from one of the most beautiful villages in Italy. It is made entirely of wood. Its beautiful panoramic terrace overlooks a large park with a pond, surrounded by holm oak trees. Raised about 3 meters from the ground, the house is built with green building techniques, and with thermal and acoustic insulation in hemp fibre.
