The story of Canopée-Lit

Canopée-LitOur team

The little adventure, the big team !

All began with a trip in September 2008 and an unexpected meal on the shores of the fjord with a breathtaking sunset.

A forest was for sale. And why not? We can build cabins in the trees! A group of French people - a mother, her daughter, son, son-in-law, grandson, another grandson, and a nephew!

It was the moment to say "Hello" instead of "Goodbye"and set to work to give you pleasure. You will be greeted by one of us. You have made good choice!

Each one of us has our particular skills and favorite interests.

Each of us has found our role in the dream, may you discover your dream here!

 

Canopée-LitThe forest

The forest

23 wooded hectares, 3 streams one of which has its source within the forest, 5km of tracks and 8 bridges, 1 heron, 3 goats, 312 hares, 518 squirrels and sometimes even a bear! We hope you will take time out to go for fascinating walks while you're here.

Canopée-LitThe project

Canopée Lit : How and why?

Ideas, sketches, neighbours, cafés, planning around the table, travels, the past, future, and present, our time has led us all to create Canopée Lit. Go up and feel the clean air of the forest perched in a tree!

We offer you the concept of a cabin. With some water, but not too much, some electricity, but not too much! Happiness is perhaps not where you expect to find it... Climb up and you will see!

 

Canopée-LitCreating the project

Construction with respect to the environment

Cabins for all year round: these were the first constructions! Warm and welcoming, the first to be built in the forest ! Local artisans were with us for the building and installation. It was in 2010 ! We have done it! The adventure has begun!

The summer cabins, the next stage! It's already 2013!

After three years of up and running and much thought, we are again in our workshops drawing up new plans and bulding some more. Romantic, light, we have used our imagination and built a glass dome in the roofs of the cabins this time, above the beds!

The latest members of the cabin generation  are innovative and inspired, fulfilling crazy and unusual dreams.
