At Casa Barthel in Tuscany, you can indulge your childhood dream of living in a tree house. Sleep between the pine trees in this cosy tree top cabin, surrounded by the charming Chianti countryside. At night, you can enjoy a fine glass of Italian red and fresh pasta in this picturesque haven, and explore the nearby historic city of Florence.
Fireflies & figs provide glamorous yurts nestled within scenic surroundings in the Abruzzo region on the east coast of Italy. Their beautifully crafted accommodations feature luxury amenities such as spacious en-suites with walk in showers, so you can truly relax in this peaceful retreat surrounded by nature.
An other tree house hideaway rests within the gorgeous La Piantata campsite, which also offers guests bedrooms within a quaint farmhouse. The tree houses, reserved for those who demand much more unique holiday accommodation, reside on top of a lavender field or by the tranquil pool. The owners also make their own organic products, including lavender cosmetics and extra virgin olive oil so that you can take home a memento of your idyllic stay.
If star gazing is your thing, take a trip to Monteleone di Fermo, where you can sleep under the stars in a luxury transparent dome. If it gets too cold, retreat inside and get cosy in a restored 1700’s farmhouse and feast on the local, sumptuous cuisine.
La Prugnola, near Pisa, offers visitors their own fully equipped canvas yurt located on a cliff by the Etruscan Coast. Each yurt is completely Eco-friendly, using solar energy, water wells and all natural materials. This location is the ideal place for a complete retreat from city life, even if it’s just for a long weekend.
