New trends in the outdoor hospitality industry

Camping offers customers the opportunity to interact with people from different countries, cultures and lifestyles who all have a common point: freedom and reconnect with nature.


Outdoor hospitality has remained a popular activity in Europe. As a result, the camping sector has changed in many aspects over the last 20 years, facing new types of customers with different expectations. Originally represented as a wilderness experience, an escape and inexpensive solution to spend holidays, camping is now evolving in different forms and levels of comfort.

Le Glamping



Le secteur de l’hôtellerie en plein air a vu émerger une nouvelle forme de tourisme se nommant « le Glamping ». Ce terme découle d’une composition de mots entre camping et glamour. Novatrice et originale, cette tendance attire une nouvelle clientèle dans le monde du camping. Les bénéficiaires peuvent ainsi s’échapper de leur vie quotidienne pour s’apaiser au milieu de cadres idylliques, dans des concepts d’hébergements durables et insolites disposant de tout le confort qu’un hôtel peut fournir.
