Camping: either you love it or you hate it. Not everyone feels predisposed to "Spartan" and rustic life typical of the campsite: sleeping in uncomfortable cots in small spaces, cooking with a stove with which you put 1 ha, making a plate of pasta, sharing bathrooms with hundreds of other people, suffocating in the heat of the tent at the first light of the morning. But sleeping in a camping gives you a contact with nature now more and more difficult to grasp in everyday life, and especially teaches children theimportance of essential things.
How to bring together camping lovers and heaters? With a new growing trend: that of luxury camping!

What is Glamping? Here is the meaning of the term!

The more attentive will have already understood: glamping is a term born from fusion of the words "glamor" and "camping". What does it mean? It means camping life is elevated to a new rank: it is now possible to spend a camping holiday by taking advantage of very comfortable accommodations of curtains with an extremely accurate design and luxury. Forget the good old Canadian tent, where you barely fit 2 and where the suitcases have to be placed on the sides so as not to take up too much space ...

Extra luxury camping tents ...

But what will these 5-star tents ever look like? Let us give you some examples.
A first variant is that of luxury tent trolley call Opera Camper: a luxurious private suite on two wheels. Towable by any machine, the trolley becomes a luxury tent with kitchen, bathroom and outdoor shower in just a few steps. Not to mention electronically adjustable beds, boiler, refrigerator, LED lighting. The cost? About 28.000 €... if you think about it, less and less than a camper!
Another example is the luxury tent Lotus Belle Outback: lodge tents with pointed roofs that guarantee effective ventilation and available in different sizes ... in the larger ones you can even organize a party! And that's not all: there is also a Deluxe version. The cost varies from 1.500 euros to 2.200 euros approximately.
