Staying in the middle of nowhere can be an exciting experience, especially if the place you are staying at is unusually high above ground.
Treehouses have mushroomed around Slovakia in recent years. Besides fulfilling a childhood dream – who has never dreamt about having a house in the treetops? – a stay high above ground allows holidaymakers to discover a locality which one would probably avoid if a treehouse was not built there.
“First of all, it is accommodation about the experience, feeling what it is like to spend time and nights in a treehouse that moves in the wind and so be in connection with the surroundings and nature,” Peter Valentšík, owner of Oaktreehouse in Modra, told The Slovak Spectator.

There are about 20 such treehouses in Slovakia but more are under construction.
Even though each of them offers a slightly different experience, they all offer connection with nature and usually a morning basket with a hearty breakfast.
Nights on the terrace
Martina Magulová booked a night in a treehouse in Trenčianske Teplice with her husband and small son five years ago, when this type of accommodation was still just starting to gain popularity in Slovakia.
“Just the arrival into the treehouse, which was a novelty back then in Slovakia, caused a wow effect,” Magulová told The Slovak Spectator.
