Whether it be France, The Netherlands, Belgium or Sweden, we’ve got you covered!

Waking up to the beautiful and calming trees will make your day even more productive but relaxing at the same time! Imagine trees growing through terraces and roofs of your mountain hut! If you decide to stay in France, then you will be amazed by the greenery that this country has to offer. You may think of Eiffel Tower, Champs-Élysées or Arc de Triomphe everytime you think of France, but have you heard of Portes en Valdaine in Rhône-Alpes? Here, you will discover oak, beech, pine, birch, poplar and willow.

Feel like visiting the woods in Sweden? Go hiking or biking through the endless forests that are nowhere the same and explore various species of flowers in this country. Visby, a sunny island in Sweden has roses blooming until winter creating a picturesque view for you to enjoy! These are the few countries that offer so much vegetation but there are more options available for you where you could book a mountain hut and enjoy unique floras of those places.


From wild boars to deers and foxes, if you stay in the woods, you might spot them right outside your mountain hut! Europe is a continent with unique animal life and marine life. Most of the countries that are near the Mediterrinean region, offer wildlife that not everyone has seen. For instance, in Germany, you may spot a cute little European pine marten, or European badger. The forests in France are home to polecats, martens and deers. As you take a hike on the mountains, you can say hi to some hedgehogs, shrews, foxes or even squirrels, rabbits, otters and beavers. Migratory birds like terms, buntings, and egrets can also be spotted in France. Some of the countries in Europe have witnessed a decline in wildlife over the past five decades however, some are still well preserved and in advantage. Here there’s less human activity and plenty of space for you to explore the wilderness and book a mountain hut within the area. Connect with nature to see some of the unique creatures that still exist in these regions.

The nature houses are located in the mountains where you can relax but also be adventurous. During summer, you could bike, walk or go canoeing directly into the woods. Places like Drents-Friese Wold National Park have great opportunities to perform multiple activities. Take your children along with you for some climbing in the nearby high altitudes or visit a unique climbing park. Are you up for challenges? If you go with your friends then try out team building activities in the middle of nature such as archery, tree planting, mountain biking, ziplining, or foot golf. These activities will let you freshen up and enjoy your stay even more. In the Netherlands, some villages offer activities for both young and the old. The centers may have monumental buildings and narrow streets that’s definitely worth a visit. During the summer, you can put flowers outside your mountain hut or stroll along the local markets.

Your mini trip with

We are sure that choosing the perfect holiday house for your short trip could be very difficult. Especially, when going on such a short vacation when you want everything to be perfect. For this reason, we would like to give you a short description of possible accommodations and activities that could enhance your trip. What would you say about glamping holidays or staying in a safari tent, yurt, caravan, or treehouses. These options would provide adventurous and one of a kind stay in nature. We recommend choosing this type of accommodation if you really need to unplug from your daily routine and surroundings. These types of cottages would be perfect for a trip if you are planning to go alone or with a partner.

Another great option is to go on agriturismo holidays in a farm or country house. This would definitely be a great way to change your environment if you are living in a small apartment in the city. Nevertheless, if you have a pet, it will be a paradise not only for you but also for your fluffy friend. In fact, when staying in most of the houses that are in the countryside, you can enjoy freshly grown vegetables from the garden. If you have a secret romantic getaway planned to surprise your partner, then book a tiny house, treehouse above the ground, or a remote log cabin by the sea/lake area. For family or larger group accommodation we recommend staying at one of our villas, bungalows, chalets, or apartments.

Besides all the nice house types, it is also possible to search for houses that will provide you a luxurious mini trip by having a private swimming pool or sauna. There are multiple fun ideas for a mini trip. If traveling in winter, a short skiing or snowboarding trip to the European mountains like the Pyrenees in Southwest Europe, the Skandinavian mountains in the North, or the Balkan Mountains in Bulgaria, Eastern Europe could be an option. If traveling in summer, relaxing by the sea or other natural waters would be a good idea. Also, getting away from everything and staying deep in the forest to immerse in the natural world, is an option. In fact, when staying in the woods, it is the best place to observe different kinds of animals and birds. It is really up to you to decide how to spend your short vacation - fishing or skiing, kayaking or hiking, swimming in the sea or mountain biking. Maybe the mini trip in nature is a perfect environment to start meditating or trying your skills at yoga. As you can see, the options are endless! Enjoy!
