When vacationing in France, one tends to think of Paris and fine dining and beautiful, quaint, and very expensive hotels. Fortunately, the eco enthusiast does not have to holiday in such a manner, if they do not choose. The Gaulois Village in Puy de Dome is comprised of 20 huts or tree houses, all of which are remarkably earth friendly and highly sustainable. This place is ideal for those who enjoy to “weather” the outdoors, since much of the fine luxuries you would find in a classic hotel have been converted to sustainable counterparts. For example, the bath of Combrailles consists of an outdoor bathing experience in a barrel which is heated by a wood burning fire. Your breakfast in the morning is lifted up to your terrace using a rope and pulley system, and natural burning oil lamps and candles light the evening during your stay. The tree houses are built without interfering with the natural growth of the trees, so that you can rest assured that nature has been disturbed as little as possible in order to accommodate you. For exploring the terrain, mountain biking, horseback riding, fishing, kayaking and canoeing are all available, as well as guided walks which are available upon request.
The eco friendly nature of the Gaulois Village allows the prices to remain relatively cheap and unassuming, and you are expected to bring your own towels, although other linens such as bedding are already provided.
The scene is a bit like camping out and is ideal for the mountain trekking or biking sort of wanderers. This is a great idea for anyone who wishes to leave no carbon footprint whatsoever, but who would indeed enjoy a private cozy getaway in order to escape city life, and there is even a ship or boat-shaped tree house, complete with a lookout, for the younger set.
