Fall is in full swing in Europe, the fall foliage has turned the landscape in to a sea of colours and in some parts of Europe the first snow has already transformed the countryside into a winter fairy tale. The cooler temperature might mean that many people wouldn’t consider glamping as an option, but let me tell you it is the perfect time of year for a cosy and romantic glamping experience here in Europe.
Whether you’re looking for a relaxing luxury stay with spa treatments or a quiet getaway into nature, Slovenia has it all.
