I have been a fan of camping since I was little. Every summer, my family would load up the camper and spend two weeks at the beach. I loved the campfires, the stars, pretty much everything about it. But, camping does have its downsides, especially if you’re not a person who enjoys sleeping outdoors.
Glamping has become a popular trend over the years, and I personally think it’s a great compromise for those who don’t like camping but still want to enjoy some time out in nature. You get the best of both worlds with the glamping option with the added bonus of a real bed.
Italy has joined the glamping trend, and thank goodness they did because the options available are stunning! Check out the top ten places to go glamping in Italy.
1. La Casa del Tempo Ritrovato
Located near Lake Garda, La Casa del Tempo Ritrovato offers guests views of the water and a peaceful night amongst the olive trees. The yurt provides a comfortable night tucked into cotton sheets on a king-sized bed. There’s also a pool on-site for guests to use as well.
2. Canonici Di San Marco
Situated in the countryside of Venice, where the city’s nobility used to have their summer homes, Canonici Di San Marco is a luxury glamping resort. Your stay will include a welcome drink, breakfast, access to the mini-fridge, bicycle use, and wireless internet.
3. Yurta Soul Shelter
If you are looking for a more immersive escape within the woods, stay at Yurta Soul Shelter. You’ll have a private lounge area, parking, barbecue, and a private bathroom.
4. Village Torre del Porticciolo
Visitors to Sassari in Sardinia should look into making a reservation at this glamorous location. The village is located just a few miles from the city of Alghero, so you can spend your days sightseeing in town and return to nature in the evenings.
5. Sesta Terra Natural Resort
Imagine waking up in a comfortable bed and looking out at views of the sea. That is what you’ll find at the Sesta Terra Natural Resort. You can also enjoy the on-site restaurant and one of the many spa treatments offered.
6. Fireflies and Figs
This natural yurt retreat is founded in central Abruzzo situated near the Majella Mountains. Guests can enjoy all the area has to offer including kayaking and rafting in the summer months.
7. Campeggio Capalbio
If you have always admired the glamping setups on African safaris, make your reservation at this Tuscan site. It’s located steps away from the beach while your accommodations offer a fully furnished space with a private terrace.
8. Shauri Glamping
Surrounded by the scent of sage and thyme, this Sicilian retreat is everything you are looking for in a peaceful nature getaway. Sit back in your hammock and soak up the outdoors.
9. Sardinna Antiga
Located near the beach of Cape Conino, these ancient huts were abandoned for fifty years before someone realized their potential. The amenities are basic, but you’ll be spending all day at the beach anyways.
10. Azienda Agricola Della Mezzaluna
If tents aren’t really your thing, check out one of these ancient caravans in Tuscany. Located in an olive grove with views of the sea, you’ll be able to enjoy your stay in this colorful oasis without any interrupts.
