Up and away

Posted in HOTELS + VILLAS By Maggie O' Sullivan

Treetop hideaways are nothing new: the Medicis apparently had a penchant for them. What has evolved is treehouse design, with many leafy dwellings now every bit as stylish as a boutique hotel. Here are five of our favourites, all bookable through TripAdvisor Rentals.Raray Treehouse, Oise, FranceSuspended 11m off the forest floor in Oise, France, contemporary Raray Treehouse, above and top, is a leafy sanctuary for two with a separate bathroom, terrace and private hot tub. Breakfast, which is included in the price, is delivered below and can be pulled up by rope. Sleeps 2; rom £287 per night.Pura Vida, Costa RicaEqually contemporary but on a larger scale, Pura Vida is an award-winning 'eco-luxury' treehouse in the rainforests of Costa Rica. It boasts an infinity plunge pool and wraparound lounge area where you can sit back with a glass of wine and drink in those awesome views. Sleeps 7; from £150 per night.The Treehouse Retreat, DevonThe Treehouse Retreat, in North Devon, has been styled by leading home brand Wayfair exclusively for TripAdvisor Rentals so guests want for nothing. Inside, there's a meditation and yoga corner, games area and reading nook outside, while outside there's a spacious terrace with a wood-fired pizza oven. Sleeps 2; from £205 per night.Stolidi mou, Rethymnon, CreteStolidi Mou, in Rethymnon, Crete, has been built in the branches of a magnificent oak tree and is as spacious as it is stylish. The wooden floors and ceilings combine with soft brown and grey fabrics and furniture to create a natural feel throughout and there's a private Jacuzzi on the terrace. Sleeps 4; from £181 per night.The Buzzardry, East SussexThe Buzzardry, in Heathfield, East Sussex, is a stunner, with gently curving walls, a luxurious copper bathtub, soaring beamed ceilings and magnificent views over woodland grounds, which also include a tennis court (not that you'll want to leave such a stylish eyrie). Sleeps 4; from £230 per night.
