La Cabane Perchée Winding Staircase Tree House

This treetop retreat surrounded by vineyards, olive trees, and donkeys is a relaxing hideaway for a family in Nice. The 60 step winding staircase leading up to the treetop structure is the work of the master carpenter and designer behind La Cabane Perchée. It's the perfect spot for a nap when you finally reach the top.
