Glamping in Europe
If you like the idea of comfortable camping whilst still being at one with nature, then glamping (glamourous camping) may be right up your street.
Camp in style and stay safe from creepy crawlies, wild animals, smelly sleeping bags and storms! You’ll have the same exposure to the outdoors as on normal camping trips, but with a few more amenities.
The Flexicover Team have suggested some glamping locations in Europe:
Eco-Lodge Brejeira; Algarve, Portugal:
If you want to get to know Portugal in a truly unique way, have an adventure and enjoy comforts in an ecological environment, then look no further. You can watch the sunset from the veranda of a yurt (a portable, felt covered, wood lattice-framed dwelling) or glamp in a gipsy van or a converted fire truck; this eco-lodge in Brejeira has a great location in the heart of the Algarve near the town of Slives. You will have en-suite facilities, a kitchen and be at one with nature in this eco-friendly retreat - an experience to cherish! More
Écovallée; Dordogne, France:
Here you can have both a green and a luxurious holiday rolled into one! This yurt camp is perfect with acres of woods and fields to discover, hammocks to nap in, animals to meet and garden games to play! You will have a beautifully handcrafted dwelling, a separate play yurt full of games and toys for the kids and a canvas covered, fully-equipped kitchen to cook in. You will be just 300 metres away from the medieval market town of Lalinde that boasts restaurants, cafes, playgrounds and more. And if that still isn’t enough, you can enjoy a soothing massage or even have a go at some bread making lessons on site! This is glamping at its best! See picture
Mongolian Yurt; Vaud, Switzerland:
Located at over 2,000m, high amongst the edelweiss-filled meadows and atop Rochers-de-Naye, this is a great location to glamp all year round. The gorgeous Mongolian yurts offer breathtaking views of the surrounding Alps and a stunning vista that includes Lake Geneva. Each yurt sleeps up to eight and is fully insulated with electric heating. Whether you hike up or take the cogwheel train from Montreux, you are sure to have an exhilarating time. See picture
The Hoopoe Yurt Hotel; Andaluzia, Spain:
This gorgeous yurt hotel is set in 3 hectares of forest and olive groves, boasting breathtaking views of the Grazalema mountains in southern Spain – perfect for nature lovers who want all the usual creature comforts! With 5 beautifully designed yurts to choose from, each with its own private bathroom, you really are spoilt for choice. Lounge in a hammock, swim in the chlorine-free pool or stroll down to Cortes de la Frontera, a typical Andalucian ‘white village’ where you will find a number of bars, restaurants and shops. Don’t miss a visit to nearby Ronda, one of the oldest towns in Spain, set above the 100 metre Tajo Gorge! See picture
