The cocoon can be accessed via netting underneath it, which doubles as a safety device.

Ocean views

The French firm behind the Cocoon Tree will offer an installation and maintenance service. At about 130 pounds, it's not easily portable, so it's expected to stay in place once set up.

A private nest

The Cocoon Tree is about 10 feet wide, large enough for two adults and two small children. A French media report says it will sell for just over $7,000.
