Reviving the spirit of camping, the dream of the cabin in the woods and the pleasure of waking up in the middle of nature. All this in full comfort and with the unique experience offered by our canvas and wood accommodations. Everything is said in our name: a hut is a summary shelter and Utopia, that island of the blessed of Thomas More that does not exist. Huttopia is the synthesis. For 20 years, Huttopia has been developing a concept of outdoor resorts, combining nature, comfort and aesthetics in preserved natural sites while adapting to the culture and spirit of the surroundings.

What's our story?

Huttopia is a family-owned and independent company, created in Lyon (France) in 1999, by Céline and Philippe Bossanne, lovers of the art of camping and the great outdoors. After living in Toronto for a few years, the founders of Huttopia returned to France with a new view on nature. It was in the great Canadian and American parks that the idea of Huttopia emerged, the idea of pitching their tents in the heart of a large natural space and sharing this experience with friends and family.
The Huttopia adventure began with a first small, very rural campsite in the Alps in France in 2000. Today, Huttopia is established on 3 continents: in Europe since 20 years, in North America since 10 years and in China for the last 5 years.

Huttopia is always following a step-by-step development, following the initial path defined, in a very independent and entrepreneurial spirit, always putting innovation and people at the heart of the project. Today, the company remains a family business, majority owned and managed by its founders.

In 2000, Huttopia began to advocate a certain “Art of Camping”, combining nature, comfort and a sense of aesthetics that laid the foundations for Glamping (ready-to-camp). Philippe and Céline wanted to facilitate access to nature for families with children, offering them comfortable and accessible accommodation. The inspiration and imagination of the brand came from the tents of the Canadian Trappers, from cabins in the woods, from simple and authentic moments shared between family and friends…


Being sincere in our actions, our work, our relationships and our words gives Huttopia an overall coherence that our teams, customers and partners notice immediately. This consistency makes it easy for everyone to understand our philosophy. It is simply a matter of honesty.


Our core business, camping, is simple by nature. We do not have a culture of the superfluous but rather of the essential. In our relationships and in our products, we are always looking for the greatest simplicity that will make life easier for our customers, partners and teams. Simplicity is never the path to ease. It requires effort and work.


It allows new paths to be opened, to be different. Whether to find solutions to small everyday problems or to invent a revolutionary product, the most important thing is to dare to imagine. Imagination makes the impossible possible. It enables innovation.

Our work is both simple and exciting: Finding beautiful natural sites, settling down without damaging them by enhancing the nature and culture of the place, installing light and reversible equipment, very well integrated into the landscape. Then inviting rather urban families looking for a simple and direct contact with nature, to come and share moments of relaxation and discovery in respect of the environment.
