The term "glamping" comes from the English words glamor + camping and represents the concept of combining a holiday in nature with the comforts of everyday life. This is a way to ensure an experience in the wild parts of the world without depriving yourself of the comfort you are used to.
It turns out that the climate and location of our country is very suitable for this type of accommodation and offers great opportunities for walks on eco trails, urban tourism and even spa treatments.
It opened its doors on July 27, 2020 and consists of 3 zones - camping, glamping and motel. It is located at the foot of the Rhodope Mountains and has a beautiful view of its high hills, although it is within the boundaries of Plovdiv and only 8 minutes by public transport to the city center. Immediately next to the glamping is a bus stop, from which 3 bus lines lead to the sights of the city. After a tiring journey on the roads of the world, you can choose accommodation in 4 types of parking lots, motels or unusual attraction houses in the glampingsite. You can do some selfcare in a unique spa (upcoming opening), an artificial river with a beach (01.06 - 30.09) or let off steam in the gym or games room.

Batak Eco Camping
Batak Eco Camping is one of the newest campsites in Bulgaria. The campsite is located on the shores of the picturesque Batak Dam in the Rhodopes - one of the most beautiful mountains in Bulgaria and the Balkans, providing beautiful panoramic views and conditions for recreation, active tourism and sports.

The purpose of eco camping is to create conditions for camping in accordance with the protection of nature and resources. The eco campsite has a modern treatment plant, and all our facilities are made of natural materials (mostly wood and stone), and the campsite is designed to provide maximum convenience to visitors without causing pollution of the environment and microclimate around Batak Dam.
Velingrad Thermal Camping
Velingrad Thermal Camping was built and put into operation in 2019. It has 35 places to accommodate campers, caravans or tents and offers its guests its own thermal center.
It is located in Velingrad, the SPA capital of Bulgaria, on the way to Yundola, in the part of the town with the healthiest and most favorable climate - right next to the St. Petka Bulgarian Pulmonary Hospital. Its location is extremely convenient for walking and cycling to the city center on an inner promenade, and the surroundings are of forest vegetation, which creates a feeling of solitude and tranquility in nature.
The accommodation places borrow from the European model, as they are partly located on grass and partly gravelly and rolled, so that there is no sinking and soaking in rainy weather and snow. Each place has electricity and water supply. The bathrooms are conveniently close to the campsites from both areas of the campsite.
The campsite’s own thermal center offers a classic and salt sauna, a steam bath, a cold shock pool, a relaxation room, showers, changing rooms and a massage parlor. Three outdoor pools - children's, large swimming pool and a warm jacuzzi and one indoor pool, supplied with mineral water from a collected and natural spring.
In the days of bad weather, guests can take advantage of a large tavern with a fully equipped kitchen, where they can prepare their own meals and gather with friends. The coziness is guaranteed by a large Rhodope fireplace and a perfect view of the mountain through the French windows.
For the youngest guests there is an outdoor children's playground. On the lower level of the building there is a game room with table tennis, swings, table tennis, air hockey, table football, board games and other activities for children and adults.
There is a lot of choice for accommodation in places of this type around our seaside resorts, so we are looking forward to ideas for them in the comments.
