Continuing our quest to find the most interesting accommodation on the planet, take a look at this incredible treehouse hotel located near Paris, France. Perched in a hundred-year-old oak tree, the Atelier-Lavit designed Origin Tree House is inspired by the nests of neighbouring birds and is available to book on Airbnb.
The Origin Tree House started life as a hundred year-old oak tree. Now a fully-functioning octagonal hotel, the tree house is accessed from a platform suspended on another tall oak 30m away, which includes a heated spa and a chilling area. From the platform, a wooden walkway leads guests straight into the heart of the nest.
Upon arrival, guests will notice a small patio area and two large sliding glass doors which provide access to the living area. Inside, the wooden interior is made from poplar, and features a private bedroom, as well as a rooftop terrace accessed by an internal ladder, which offers 360-degree panoramic views of the forest canaopy.
Costing €120,000 in total, the project was commissioned by Cabanes Nature et Spa for the Château de Raray. Located an hour north of Paris, Château Raray is a castle which dates back to 1522. Now a golf course and luxury hotel, the Origin Tree House is located under canopy within its grounds.
