Treehouses

Tree-houses have come a long way from makeshift shacks of flimsy wooden planks and rope ladders; the latest installations provide double beds, washing facilities, and some even have wifi internet connection. In these modern canopy abodes, you can enjoy many of the creature comforts of a hotel, while still enjoying the tranquility of being up in the trees.

Find out more about some of the best treehouse holidays in Europe, plus unique treehouse accommodation in Sweden, luxury tree houses in France, and see which treehouse and what other properties are greentraveller founder Richard Hammond's green break recommendations for 2010. You can also take a look at expert travel writer Catherine Mack's fascinating blogost on treehouses and other 'tree-friendly' holidays - and we've got some of the best, and greenest, tree houses around listed below.
