Glamping is a trend and is here to stay, not only because of concerns about the environment, but also because today, more than ever, isolated places to relax are sought. Do you like contact with nature, but sleeping in a tiny tent that only fits a sleeping bag and a backpack is not exactly your idea of a dream holiday? Then Glamping, or luxury camping, is the solution for you: camping in charming places, where comfort is no problem. Whether in tipis, yurts or in small huts, this is the ideal choice for a peaceful holiday, far from everything, surrounded by idyllic landscapes... and with a lot of romance in the mix. All About Portugal suggests 10 of the best Glamping units in Portugal.
