Crafted to blend into the natural environment, the cabins offer supremely comfortable beds, spacious bathrooms, and vivid views over the lake and mountain.

Dining forms an important part of the glamping experience, with dinner served in the outdoor forested spaces. Nestled next to the hypnotic campfire, enjoy the immensely romantic atmosphere as delicious French-inspired dishes, featuring local game, fruit, vegetables and wild herbs, are tailored to your personal tastes by a private chef.
