5 luxury glamping sites where you can rediscover the soul of Italy's most beautiful nature reserves

Until a few years ago, <strong>camping</strong> was the best way to spend an outdoor holiday in direct contact with nature, exploring unspoilt places and moving day after day with your tent and your trusty backpack filled with the essential items for an adventure with zero environmental impact. There are many advantages to this type of experience, but there are also many disadvantages.

Today, traditional camping is being joined by <strong>glamping,</strong> a new <strong>eco-friendly</strong> way of <strong>camping</strong> that is becoming increasingly popular in Italy too, allowing you to live en plein air but without sacrificing comfort and convenience.

Glamping, a fusion of "glamour" and "camping", is the <strong>ideal compromise between being ecologically friendly and enjoying luxury</strong>; between the experience of a 5-star hotel and a wild holiday. No backpacks, no shared bathrooms or uncomfortable makeshift beds, but strictly eco-friendly luxury facilities, convenient showers, equipped verandas and ever-present heating in evocative and uncontaminated settings.

<strong>Italy</strong> boasts some of the <strong>most exclusive glamping experiences in the world</strong>, 5-star establishments in some of the country's most beautiful natural parks.

1. A paradise on water in Campania: the Laghi Nabi natural oasis

The Laghi Nabi natural oasis, on the outskirts of Naples, is a slice of paradise where you can experience nature and water in all their strength and purity, with fully equipped tents, lake view suites or waterfront lodges in perfect harmony with the surrounding landscape.

Here, you will find luxury accommodation and exclusive services. A stay at the Laghi Nabi means you can have it all, taking advantage of wonderful facilities such as the Wellness Pool, an infinity pool on the lake where you can immerse yourself in 35 degrees of well-being and allow yourself to be transported to a state of deep relaxation. Don't miss a trip to the Water Spa, immersed in nature, offering unique experiences in the Finnish sauna, Turkish bath, sensory shower, salt room, Jacuzzi and infrared sauna.

In addition to relaxing and discovering the area' s best features with breakfasts overlooking the lake, lunches in the countryside and dinners accompanied by breathtaking scenery, you can choose from a wide range of outdoor activities such as kayaking, birdwatching, sailing, wakeboarding, horse riding and hot-air balloon rides.

2. The Amalfi Coast as you've never seen it

If you want to experience the Amalfi Coast in a new way, immersed in nature but without compromising on luxury, we suggest the Cannaverde Bio agri-campsite, which has large tents equipped with private bathroom, shower, large terrace overlooking the sea and a swimming pool set among the rocks, with hydro-massage seat and sweeping views of the sea. All this just a few minutes from Amalfi, Minori, Atrani, Ravello and Positano.

3. A luxury holiday on the Po Delta

In Veneto, you can choose the Barricata Holiday Village, in the heart of the Po Delta Park. Located within the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, the resort is increasingly focusing on glamping and now offers several luxury lodgings such as the Safari Loft, the Boutique and the Safari Deluxe: large spaces, technological and super-insulating materials, splendid finishes and refined furnishings, with air conditioning, dishwasher and a furnished wooden terrace.

This splendid 5-star resort is ideal for those seeking a seaside holiday full of exciting experiences, immersed in the rugged nature of the Po Delta.

You can enjoy a few days at the seaside on the resort’s long golden beach, have fun in the water park with swimming pools, slides, and whirlpools, take boat trips at sunset, scuba dive in the pool and in the sea, take canoe trips, and enjoy the many bicycle paths to admire the dozens of bird species that inhabit the Po Delta.

4. Sleeping in the Burano Nature Reserve, just a few steps from the sea

We would also like to suggest a wonderful glamping facility in Tuscany, in Capalbio to be precise, within the Burano Nature Reserve. Glamping Capalbio, listed among the ten best luxury campsites in Europe, offers four different types of tents ranging from the suite lodge tent for couples to the exclusive maxi lodge tent measuring 70 square metres, with a sea view terrace or outdoor Jacuzzi.

The luxury tents, surrounded by Mediterranean maquis, are located just ten metres from the beach and the crystal-clear sea of Capalbio.

A 5-star experience for memorable adventures with all the comforts you could wish for, with swimming pools, saunas, a beauty centre, several restaurants and two types of accommodation: the Dolomites Lodges, designed with attention to detail and respect for the environment, and luxurious tree houses made of wood according to modern bio-architectural principles, featuring a living room, television, bathroom with sensory shower, whirlpool and sauna.
