Long Description:

[EN] Designed by Enéa (Manuela Caldeira & Jean-Patrice Péot) on an idea of Kleber Rosillon, this playground hut (open access and unattended to the castle visitor was built in 2008.

This remarkable structure, nestled in a cedar more than a century old, is perched from 6.50 to 10.50 m above the ground. You will have to climb these 55 steps, divided into 6 stairs, to reach the summit lookout.

The overall area is 37 m2 divided into 6 levels from the ground to the lookout.

Made in Larch of Chartreuse (rather rare), the hooks combine the drilling and the suspension according to the flexibility necessary to the trunks.

The value of this hut is 77 000,00 €.

This cabin was a challenge for several reasons:

- The main was to keep the freedom of movement of the trunks independently of each other

- The second was that it was accessible to the public without supervision.
