A tree house, to me, is the most royal palace in the world-Munia Khan
Who has never dreamt of sleeping in a treehouse? The treehouse is one of the most common desires among children. You have your own place, away from the adults, where you can take refuge by "observing the world from above, some meters from the ground, between nature, stars and magic." All these can be found in Piedmont. Here we have traced some tree-hotels, where it is possible to sleep "away from the ground." You can book beautiful houses or rooms on a tree, to relive your childhood dreams and find a bit of tranquillity, away from the chaos of the city and daily stress.
It is a small relaxing resort, a place completely integrated into nature, in the Langhe area, which allows you to live an unforgettable experience. In the morning, one is awakened by the chirping of birds and the song of the roosters. Breakfast is offered in the "Ciabot della Lavanda" and includes local products. The three lodges for the reception are made of natural and eco-compatible material and are positioned at about 3 meters height, above the surrounding trees. They have an area of about 20 square meters, with an outdoor terrace. The interior is composed of a single compartment containing the complete bedroom, sink, and bathtub in a log cabin style, and a toilet. All the lodges are eco-sustainable, as they are built according to the norms of bio-building, bio-architecture, and ecology.
It is a "bed and breakfast" consisting of the main body of a villa and two treehouses, Toulipier and Quercia.

These are two wooden treehouses, located at 4 meters height, each one containing a romantic bedroom with a bathroom, a mezzanine overlooking the trees and a terrace with a walkway. In the morning, if the weather is good, an enriching breakfast is served directly in the treehouse — an alternative way to celebrate special occasions or to live an experience in close contact with nature.

In reality, Piedmont is the only place, where a group of people made a "different" lifestyle choice, by building an entire community of treehouses. These houses and initiative are kept a secret to avoid a bustle of journalists, photographers, and curious people- the members of this community guarantee a "normal stay in a special place."
