Our story

Our story

The story begins in October of 1990. We were pioneers, no one was specializing in tree-houses. The first we built were featured by the press and television worldwide.

We hit a nerve : childhood, nature, dreams. We have built since over 500 tree-houses worldwide, for private owners, but also for tourism professionals in inventing the hospitality tree-house.

We also build large terraces up in trees, often for restaurants but also for yoga or meditation. We also offer “tastings” terraces for wine estates, and “meetings” lodges for relaxed discussions or creative work.

Our team is made up of master carpenters, joiners, woodworkers, plumbers, electricians… We have worked together since day one and have acquired a unique experience. So we can live up to any challenge for your dream to become reality, and a rewarding human adventure.

Today, La Cabane Perchée is allied to the Charlois Group. If you visit their website, you will share the evidence for this union.

Tree houses for private owners

First we take precise measurements within the tree and carefully listen to your desiderata, in order to design and sketch your tree-house. It is then entirely built in our workshops. We dismantle and transport the parts to your residence and our team will assemble it into its tree. The tree is hosting the cabin and we must settle in without any disturbance, without pruning any major branch. Our adjustable holding system leaves the tree entirely free to grow.

Hospitality tree houses

We soon invented the concept of tree houses for tourism professionals. They were immediately successful in numerous countries. All are often booked months ahead and can command €250 to €650 a night. They can be amortized fast. Whether complementing classic hotel accommodations, or offered as a stand alone small facility, they always hold great appeal. This high end tree lodges are comprehensively furnished and fitted out. In these days of wine-tasting tours, they are ideal for unforgettable nights in vineyard country.

The first “terrasse-restaurant“ that we built on a gigantic plane tree was featured all over the media. You should book well ahead if you plan to lunch or dine there. A large terrace up a tree can also welcome amateurs of yoga or meditation, seminars, PR events or other activities. Meetings in a tree guarantee success and memorability.

Tree houses for tastings

The purpose here is hospitality at the heart of vineyards, broad panorama on the vine estates, an exceptional venue to discuss wine-making and hold tastings. Tree houses for wine tastings are fitted with the best professional equipment. You can receive your hosts as you would in a cellar, but do so “in the sky”. Each such tree house is custom built to take into account each client’s wishes. Visitors will undoubtedly keep long memories of such an experience.

The "Originals"

Over the years, we have created what we called “Originals” tree houses. Out of the ordinary projects, often from designer Ambroise Maggiar, a regular contributor. We are always ready to contemplate new ideas with you. We also build floating houses and trailers.
