Urban tree house chic in Paris

Tree house

For a mini break in Paris with a difference, why not opt for a spot of urban tree house chic? New from Keycamp for 2012, the outdoor holiday specialist has launched three brand new tree houses at its popular International parc in Paris, so you can combine a visit to the French capital with great value accommodation that's as fun as it is unique.

Cleverly constructed around the tree trunk and accessed via a spiral staircase, which winds magically into the forest canopy, this unusual accommodation offers a unique opportunity to experience the sights and sounds of Paris at the same time as enjoying an adventure in the treetops.

Just a 20 minute train ride from the centre of the capital, the thatched-roofed tree houses offer a spacious sleeping area, with one double and three single beds, plus a large decked terrace - perfect for a true back-to-nature experience.

Meanwhile, a fully-equipped frontier tent with kitchen facilities is provided on the ground for cooking and, should the occasional night on terra-firma be preferred, it also has beds. For a day away from the hustle and bustle of central Paris, the Palace of Versailles is only 20 minutes by car. While the town of Maisons Laffitte, with several good restaurants, a supermarket, local shops and a sports complex, is within walking distance should you want to take a day's break from sight-seeing.

A four night break from 5 May 2012 staying in a tree house sleeping up to five people at Keycamp's International parc in Paris will cost from £227, including a return Dover to Calais ferry crossing and early booking discount (if booked by 29 February 2012).
