Glamping is THE new trendy term in the outdoor world. Contraction of "glamour-ous" and "camping", it is a new type of tourist accommodation, close to camping, but in unusual places, offering a certain quality and comfort.
It originates from countries such as New Zealand, the United States and the United Kingdom.
The success of the concept is mainly based on the "out of the ordinary" aspect of the sites but also on the commitment of the owners.
