The best luxury camping holidays in Europe – for adventures in style


Sleep by super sands in Croatia

Not only do Abeille Maison’s safari tents have an air of opulence – all in immaculately draped canvas, spacious terraces, air conditioning and private pools – they also have the most enviable location in Croatia. The site is in a grove of pines, cypresses and olive trees just above the beach of Zlatni Rat, a prominent teardrop of sand near Bol, on the south coast of the island of Brac. Bol is great for windsurfing; sign up for surf and sailing schools here, snorkel or hike and bike the island’s rugged interior.

Go to the mountains in France

At altitude in Haute-Savoie, the two Ecotagnes artisanal cabins teeter in the trees, overlooking the Aravis range. Raised walkways lead to each eagle’s nest, where decks offer stunning views and wood-burning stoves keep things cozy. There is also a communal hot tub and dining cabin serving homemade meals. It’s also ideal for alpine activities: walking paths leave from the door, cable cars facilitate access to the peaks and Lake Annecy is close by, ideal for water sports and the 26-mile path that surrounds it. .

Camp Catalan style in Spain

The bustling city of Barcelona is only an hour away, but you wouldn’t know it – what makes Forest Days luxurious is its sense of seclusion. There are just four bell tents, well spaced out in the foothills of the Catalan Pyrenees. Each is rustic yet cozy with super king mattresses, handmade furnishings, eco-friendly toilets, and plenty of opportunities to explore. Follow the trails in the forest, along the cliffs and up to the Aigua d’Ora river for a wild swim. Cycling, kayaking and canyoning are also available nearby.
