New owner sought for successful Glamping business in stunning French location. Unique opportunity to make the outdoors your business.
Fancy a life working outdoors with an income and business that is already established? You can invest into a new and exciting market and run a glamping business that has been operating in the sector for the last five years. The lucky new owner would be buying not only the ongoing concern but also the market research, innovation and product development that has supported the business.
The glamping industry is so new that successful glamping businesses are rare to market and anyone looking to get into glamping would normally have to find the land and develop their own. The opportunity has been developed and run for the last 5 years by glamping expert Simon Thomason and is a ‘ready to go’ business.
“Our site in the beautiful Pays Basque in France has been our flagship site and the test bed for innovations and developing success. The business has grown to deliver one of the very best contemporary and fun luxury glamping experiences in Europe.” explains Simon. “We are selling the business as our demand to advise others to develop their own glamping businesses is growing. We feel that now is the perfect time to sell to someone looking for a life change and who has the confidence to change their lives, as we did ours, and make the outdoors your office”.
France is Europe’s camping country and those looking for luxury are turning to glamping as the ideal holiday. There are 3.7 million bed places on campsites in France and many are looking to upgrade to stay outdoors but with a bit more luxury. Glamping is still growing and a return on investment is solid.
Glisten comes with a ready-made brand and uses ‘Geo Domes’ for versatility and a sense of space and sheer attractiveness that makes for compelling and memorable experiences unmatched either by large tents or luxurious cabins. The business rents pitch spaces in a French location and this gives the flexibility to either keep up the current deal or move them to a new site. This has become a successful strategy.
The brand has achieved some great PR including Europe’s 20 best glamping sites in the Daily Telegraph and Sunday Telegraph, plus great coverage from visiting bloggers and vloggers.
With a booking website, marketing materials and a database of happy and returning guests Glisten is an ‘out of the box’ business ready to go. The sale comes with advice and guidance from owner and expert Simon Thomason and a healthy balance sheet and turnover.
