Glamping on the Ile de Ré

Campsite Ile de Ré > Camper tip > Camping vs. Glamping

Whether in the wild or in a facility designed to accommodate tents, caravans and motorhomes, the number of camping enthusiasts has grown over the years. Another popular form of tourism has recently emerged: glamping.

Glamping, luxury camping

Glamping, whose name comes from the words “glamour” and “camping”, was born to meet the needs of a demanding clientele seeking both the advantages of a traditional campsite and those of luxury hotels. Glamping enthusiasts are looking for a comfortable stay in a magnificent natural setting to reconnect with nature in a warm atmosphere, without giving up their everyday comforts. They want to stay in fully-equipped luxury accommodation such as a mobile home or chalet.

Some are looking for an unusual vacation rental for a unique experience in complete privacy, such as a cabin in the woods, a Mongolian yurt or a gypsy caravan.

Tailor-made quality, activities, infrastructure and services

Glamping is all about glamour and quality. Glamping enthusiasts place aesthetics and excellence at the top of their search criteria. They’re willing to pay a little more to stay in refined upscale accommodation with a fully equipped kitchen, living room with TV, separate bedrooms and bathroom.
Not to mention an outdoor terrace and private garden on their vast plot. And to ensure the success of their vacations, activities and entertainment for children must be offered: sports tournaments, themed evenings, excursions… Finally, glamping is distinguished from camping by the infrastructures and services made available to visitors, such as a water park, spa, bar-restaurant, bicycle hire, washing machines or a grocery store…
