Four hours south of Paris, a wilderness of pine forests, crystal-clear lakes, and volcanic peaks springs from the countryside. It's the kind of rugged landscape you'd expect in Montana, scattered with wild horses and wolves. Except here, at the Instants d'Absolu Ecolodge & Spa, you can also enjoy French food and creature comforts. Chocolate croissants and wildflower jam are set out each morning, and post-dinner cordials of lemony pine liqueur are served by the outdoor hot tub. Lest visitors get too relaxed, all 12 rooms have exploration-friendly binoculars and boots.
