A new outdoor camping concept in France

A far cry from “living in a bubble”, outdoor camping experience has never been better when the new concept takes fresh expression of “living in a bubble” to the wild with the night sky. What a better way to experience a perfect private retreat or an unforgettable luxury camping in French wine country that allows you to spend the night under the stars.

Nestled in a forested area between Bordeaux and Saint Emilion, “The Bubbles of Bordeaux” is the newest addition to the glamping experiences opened in France. Transportation to the site can be arranged from Bordeaux train station and airport.

The beautiful surround will appeal to the affluent international crowd who relish a coveted lifestyle destination. Guests can bask under the stars or camp inside the all transparent bubble pods called “Les Bulles de Bordeaux”.

The five bubbles pods took after the names of local wines and grapes: Cabernet, Merlot, Muscadelle, Verdot and Semillon. Each of the independent tents has been meticulously built on wooden decks that afford guests the chance to laze and revitalise, enjoying nature at its finest.

The facility is tastefully designed to equip with all creature comforts of full-sized beds, showers and toilets, heating, electricity and lighting. Some of the pods also come with Jacuzzis, and also present the options to choose between completely transparent and semi-transparent tents. In addition, enjoy the offer of French delicacies or request for the meals to be delivered right to your pod.

“An hour and a half outside of Reykjavik in Iceland, guests can also experience the aurora borealis at the Bubble Lodge.”

At the Nellim Wilderness Hotel in northern Finland, catch the Northern Lights under glass-domed cabins. In Pont-Saint-Esprit in Southern France, Maison Bulles comes with a queen-sized bed and telescopes upon request. And at Canada’s Ridgeback Lodge in New Brunswick, take the chance to sip on wine while soaking in a private, wood-fired hot tub, while gazing up at the stars.
