Frequently Asked Questions
Do you have a parking?
Yes, however, our car park is small and limited to one car per treehouse. That said, we can definitely find space for 2 motorbikes instead of 1 car.
Please note there is no space for mobile homes or caravans.
Bikes can be left below your treehouse or by the entrance if you stay in treehouse Colonel Hathi.
Are the treehouses heated?
Yes! Not only are our tree houses comfortably heated, we also transform the interior into a warm, cosy cocoon in the colder months with luxury bed linen and furnishings, making your tree house the perfect place to while away the hours in case of rain or bad weather.
PS: the pool is not heated. But we do have a sauna, which is even better than a heated pool in our opinion!
Can we bring a pet?
Yes, you can bring a small, well-trained and gentle dog for a small fee of 8 euros per day.
We ask that you keep your dog on a leash at all times when in the gardens to respect the tranquility of other guests and their children (and our cat). Please also ensure that your pet does not infringe on the domain’s cleanliness.
Therapy dogs are always welcome, multiple dogs per treehouse are not. Please contact us before making a reservation in case of doubt.
Nice Airport is only 20-minutes from Orion by car.
Alternatively, you could arrive via Marseille airport, but do check to determine if potentially cheaper flight tickets are worth the longer drive (almost two hours).
The closest train station is Cagnes-sur-Mer, a mere 10 minutes away.
Can we privatise the entire domain?
Yes. Our four tree houses can be booked for exclusive use by your group. This includes full access to the gardens, ecological pool, and the breakfast area. Contact us for more details.
Should we rent a car?
Although a car can be convenient for getting to Orion, if your main intent is to rest and enjoy Saint-Paul de Vence, your tree house and the Orion garden, you do not necessarily need a car.
To get to us you can book a taxi/uber or take bus 400 from downtown Nice, Nice airport or the Cagnes-sur-Mer train station. More details here.
There are several excellent restaurants within walking distance of Orion. You will also find a supermarket 2 km down the chemin du Malvan.
For local excursions, you can easily reach Vence, Cagnes-sur Mer and Nice from the bus stop in Saint-Paul de Vence village.
Are small children welcome?
Yes, of course!
Orion is a heavenly place for children so we have chosen not to put an age limit on our youngest guests.
We do not charge for babies and toddlers up to 2 years of age. We have a high chair and we can provide a baby cot free of charge.

Can we cook at Orion?
No. Except for groups who rent the entire domain, we do not provide cooking facilities.
We do, however, have a communal fridge and microwave oven available for guests who wish to store perishable food items or prepare a small meal or picnic. The microwave can also be used to warm up a drink for the baby.
BBQs and cooking in the treehouses are strictly forbidden.
