Glamour + Camping = Glamping

Luxury Holidays in Nature

What is Glamping?

Glamping is a style of luxury camping holiday, a real philosophy that blends comfort, design and nature.

You might be wondering... what does "glamping" mean? The term derives from the combination of the words "glamour" and "camping", and indicates a new trend in luxury camping holidays in which the pleasure of contact with nature is combined with a variety of services and comforts found in top-level hotels, such as a swimming pool, jacuzzi, wellness path, restaurant, children's entertainment... In addition, the spaces of a glamping campsite are designed to give guests privacy and freedom.

Why choose a glamping holiday by Vacanze col Cuore? Because in our structures, from Lake Garda to Tuscany, from Holland to Lake Idro, what we try to give to families, couples and children is a "feels like home" experience, by trying to create a welcoming, family-like atmosphere.

Safari tents, lodge tents, mobile homes...

Glamping accommodation is comfortable, new and pretty.

A glamping tent like a Safari or a Lodge Tent has nothing to do with canvas and pegs. They are fully equipped and furnished, with a private bathroom, shower, electricity, air conditioning, heating, kitchenette... but also panoramic terraces and even private Jacuzzis! Among the glamping accommodations there are also furnished cottages and mobile homes or spacious bungalows - real glamping cottages with all comforts. But Vacanze col Cuore also offers truly unique lodgings: ever thought of sleeping in a real American Schoolbus, in a vintage Shasta trailer or in a futuristic caravan like the Airstream?

Family Van de Loo

The family of Vacanze col Cuore is the founder of Glamping in Italy. It was 1976 when the founder of Vacanze col Cuore, the Dutchman Loek van de Loo, arrived at Lake Garda to work at a campsite. It was love at first sight for Italy, but also love for his wife Chicca, to whom he has been happily married for almost 40 years now. Together with his family he built Weekend Camp Site into what is now Weekend Glamping Resort. From there the dream was born to spread an innovative holiday model in Italy, where the design of the accommodation, the beauty of the common areas and the attention to the customer made the campsite more like a "horizontal hotel" in the open air. The passion for the camping industry has been passed down and shared with the whole family, especially with his sons Leonardo and Alessandro, not only in terms of know-how, but also in its more human and emotional side.Today there are 8 Glampings in the Vacanze col Cuore group, with a Glamping Boutique and Glamping Resort on Lake Garda, Lake Idro, in Tuscany and in Holland. A Dutch-Italian family business which continues to innovate and surprise its guests.
