A trip to the countryside is a great way to reconnect with nature. But once you've reached your countryside hotel or apartment, it can feel like you haven't left the city at all. The sounds and sights of the forest are concealed by double glazed windows, and the wifi competes for your attention rather than the changing colours of the sunset and the stars. Staying in a treehouse lets you get properly back to nature. These treehouses range from chic and comfortable to luxurious, and while they still hold all the mod cons you expect, they won't detract from the actual reason why you've ventured into the wild.
