If the key to getting ahead is a gimmick, the owners of Domaine de Puybéton in Dordogne have it made. The bed of roses they have made for themselves is actually above their heads – in the form of treehouses.
This romantic destination offers three cabanes: one styled after the Château de Monbazillac, one after Château de Hautefort and one after Josephine Baker’s former home, Milandes.
These turret-topped gîtes offer a secluded hideaway. Cabane Monbazillac (pictured), in particular, is ideal for couples, and each comes with its own jacuzzi on the terrace. At €250 a night in peak season, they look perfect for couples looking for a night away.

There’s also an infinity pool in the grounds and terrific views over the Dordogne countryside.
Situated in Nojals-et-Clotte, the spa complex is less than 25km from where we stay, in Castillonnès. With our thoughts now turning to our summer trip, a night here might prove a fun break within our holiday.
