The contraction between camping and glamour has created a genre for outdoor lovers: glamping, which combines respect for the environment, unusual housing and need of comfort.
A new art of living
Inherited the style of Asian lodges or sub Saharan, glamping is developing in the United Kingdom from 2005.
It caters to a high-end clientele, greedy adventures and contact with nature but which wishes to preserve its comfort during the holidays.
Since then, the camps eco-chic, simple but spacious and equipped with cosy beds have dethroned the basic camping tent and the uncomfortable sleeping bag.
Traditional and unusual habitats (yurts, tipis, trailers, treehouses) are in vogue but in a luxury version and landscaped sites in perfect coherence with nature.
Housing of the glamper
Dreaming of a return to the sources? You can discover life on the farm in a tent parqueted and equipped with a wood burning stove and a kitchen, sleeping in Teepees typically Indian shower solar power and refrigerator or even stay in the trees in a hut superbly furnished with bathtub, Toilet and running water.
Whatever the theme or the place of your stay, activities in harmony with nature are proposed:
- discovery of the cultures and traditions in areas not frequented by tourists;
- circuits on horseback in the steppe;
- observation of the stars…
Everything is possible or almost.
