Forget fancy hotels, the best way to see Greece is by glamping. With bubble domes tucked among olive groves and ultra-luxe safari tents, there’s something for every traveller. Here are the best glamping sites in Greece, all bookable with Culture Trip.
For many travellers, Greece is the chance to escape to another world. Whether you opt for the mainland or the islands, the mountains or the sea, the locals are friendly, the food is divine and the climate is temperate – it’s paradise on the Mediterranean. There are plenty of luxury Greek hotels from which to choose, but if you’re on a budget (and still want an upscale stay) why not try glamping instead? From a chic beachside spot in Kos to a yoga retreat in Rhodes, we chart some of the best.
On Santa Maria Beach, on the northeastern coast of Paros, Santa Maria Surfing Beach is a camping complex offering a variety of accommodation, including a collection of beach huts in a natural setting. These cute cabins for two come with electricity, two single beds and a closet. Ideal for young people and backpackers, they allow for happy moments in nature at an affordable price.
In Sarti, in the picturesque region of Halkidiki, Armenistis Camping & Bungalows is conveniently located by the beach and has a collection of living spaces for all tastes, plus a restaurant, café, bar and sports facilities. Opt for a luxury safari tent, which has a private kitchen, spacious living room, bedrooms, a private shower and an outdoor area. But you can also choose a sturdy sea-view tent, equipped with a double bed and a sofa bed or bunk bed, a kitchen, and an outdoor patio with a sea view. For big groups, the youth hostel tents are ideal.
On the Sithonia peninsula in Halkidiki, near Vourvourou Bay, the luxury camping ground of Akti Oneirou lies in a natural environment with a private beach. Comprising a series of bungalows, caravans, mobile homes and small wooden houses, Akti Oneirou also includes a beach bar and a restaurant. It’s also a popular wedding venue, given the peaceful and pleasant surroundings.
