La Bergerie Du Plateau - Ardeche, France
Located in the center of the Ardèche Mountains, La Bergerie du Plateau is a restored sheep barn from 1830 that retains much of its original rustic character - think lots of exposed wood and stone. Sitting at an altitude of 1,200 meters (3,900 feet), it features a diverse handful of quirky “glamp” sites such as a wooden caravan, an asymmetric cabin, a Finnish Kota Hut and a dome tent, ideal for a relaxing stay. It all comes together in the perfect balance of simplicity, authenticity and scenery.
Glamping Canonici di San Marco - Mirano, Italy
