Chateaux Dans les Arbres - France
About 100 miles from Bordeaux, in the lower Dordogne, lies the majestic Chateaux dans les Arbres - a former feudal stronghold turned luxury hotel with treehouse accommodation, gourmet treats and outdoor Jacuzzis. The property consists of 4 exquisite tree “castles” set amidst a fascinating forestry setting. No two units are alike, each is individually designed, featuring unique characteristics such as overflow spa with chromotherapy and Finnish sauna, Asian-inspired interiors, decorative ironwork or spacious terraces overlooking the magical surroundings.
Three years later, a new girl sits cross-legged on your bed.
She tastes like a different flavor of bubblegum than you are used to.
She opens up a book that you had to read in high school, and a folded picture of us falls out of chapter three.
Now there are two unfinished stories resting in her lap.
Inevitably, she asks, and you tell her.
You say: I dated her a while back.
You don’t say: Sometimes, when I’m holding you, I imagine the smell of her vanilla perfume.
You say: She was younger than me.
You don’t say: The sixteen summers in her bones warmed the eighteen winters my skin had weathered.
You say: It’s nothing now.
You don’t say: But it was everything then.
