Gypsy glamping in hallstatt
So we tried something a little different for our accommodation near Hallstatt. Uninspired by what was available the hubb's decided to look in a different direction.
I think he might have even been joking when he first ran it by me....
"How about glamping he said "
Well this wasn't any old glamping. This gypsy was Gyspy wagon glam-ping.
One look at this fairytale place and I was in. How could I say no?
With its tree house and moss covered roofs and fog enrobes mountains, it is literally too cute for words. Set against the backdrop of a fairy tale alpine mountain and lake Hallstatt its like something from a story book.
And the prefect base for exploring hallstatter see and all of the lovely towns nearby
There are around 7 gypsy wagon in the park, all with a different theme and each one cuter than the last.
It was so hard to choose which one to stay in, but one stood out among the rest for me...
Here she is..."La Zigane rouge"
She is nicknamed the red gypsy at the parc, and she instantly reminded me of a very feminine Parisian boudoir from the twenties
The owner of the parc explained to be that she is a very rare collector's item: an original "Buggenhout" from the thirties, designed by the famous "Monsieur Albrecht", who also designed wagons for the Orient Express.
This "Buggenhout" was the classic flagship car of the Rolls Royce of the established "gens du voyage", the "traveling people", the circus people, artists, musicians and the wealthy gypsies of northern Western Europe.
Isn't she a cutie! I think we chose well.
Our gypsy wagon experience was one of the highlights from this trip. The location is so unbelievably stunning and compactly romantic. The gypsy wagon park and Austria a have made me fall completely in love.
Now all im thinking is when can I come back...
