    I am unashamedly glamping just South of Tarragona right on the beach.

    A bit pricey but wow:thumb:

    Hope this offends the ardent wild campers and anti expensive campsite police::bigsmile:

    We were on Shell Island last summer when some Glampers turned up. Have never seen a tent like they had that did not belong to Billy Smart. It was huge, with every mod con, including a full size double bed. They arrived in a Mini bus towing a twin axle box trailer and the whole thing took all day to erect. Outside the main tent was a toilet tent, kitchen tent and shower tent complete with solar shower. I would imagine the whole set-up cost as much as a motorhome. Great entertainment value though for onlookers like me. Things have certainly moved on from my camping days with an old tarpaulin sheet.

    You can come Glamping at Quinta Majay.

    A yurt with a chandelier...

    Brekky in bed...

    Peace and quiet.

    Wander among the olive trees nibbling on grapes picked right off the vine. Choose the pear you want from the tree.

    Breathe in the air scented with the aroma of eucalyptus and fresh pine.

    Price negotiable.


    JJ :Cool:

    Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy.

    There is room for every type of tenter, tugger and chugger as long as nothing is abused and no one is upset. :Smile:

    Not sure about the freeloading tosser bit.

    I'm not a freeloader but I can't comment on the other bit.

    Can't post pics from my phone/iPad without jumping through hoops which I am too pi$$ed to jump through::bigsmile:

    I went, with 7 others, touring Europe in the 70's. We were all crushed like sardines in a dormobile and two tents and travelled extensively through all the European countries. In Italy we went glamping as it is called now and then it consisted of wooden huts on the beach. Together with the spiders we all thought we were very classy on the Italian Riviera, with four beds to each hut. The best time ever. I think it would be called shanty town now. :ROFLMAO:

    I think I prefer my motorhome, but no doubt glamping must be luxury now:Smile:

    Not a whole lot of point in extracting all that cash from your clients if you don't put it to good use, is it.

    It's how capitalism works after all.

    Enjoy.
