A nature escape with your besties in Italy

Spring is the season of awakening senses, and with various bank holidays upcoming, it makes possible to realize that dream so cherished  throughout the winter. Free weekends with girl friends! And who said women only seek for shopping? More and more girls are dedicating their holidays to practicing sports or having active tourism experiences, be it mild or extreme. Whether it's a birthday celebration or a bachelorette party, finding time to share memorable experiences in nature with your friends will help you rejuvenate and create unforgettable memories. From north to south, here are 5 ready-to-use ideas - and equally breathtaking locations - that you can book on the Garden Sharing website.

Forest bathing in a Yurt surrounded by woods in the Emilian Apennines 

In Val di Taro, near the WWF Oasis of Ghirardi, just 2 and a half hours by car from Milan, there is a campsite that houses authentic Mongolian yurts built with natural materials, spacious and welcoming, with exclusive use of sanitary facilities. Waking up with a KM0 breakfast and panoramic views indeed recalls the vast spaces of Mongolia and is ideal for unplugging and immersing oneself in a high-nature environment. A perfect destination for those who love reconnecting with nature through walks in the woods, trekking, birdwatching, and forest bathing experiences. To explore the surroundings, you can also rent mountain bikes on-site. And if there's someone in your group who loves photography, everything here is Instagrammable, starting from the lavender field where essential oil is extracted. And in the evening, when it's time for confidences, try looking up: the absence of light pollution makes the starry sky truly unparalleled.

Weekend at the hot springs in Tuscany camping in an elegant cotton tent 

Hot springs are always a valid option for a girls' reunion. In Tuscany, between the provinces of Siena and Grosseto, some of the most beautiful ones in Italy can be found, and there is no shortage of free pools. Just think of the scenic Saturnia hot springs or the San Filippo baths. And if water were the dominant element of your holiday, then just an hour away from the beaches of Argentario, you can base yourself in a beautiful tent set at the foot of Monte Amiata. In this marvelous landscape, under ancient chestnut trees, there's a large cotton tent set on a spacious wooden terrace, raised from the ground and with a breathtaking view. The large shared kitchen is equipped with everything you need, and for each accommodation, there's a private refrigerator. Bathrooms are also private for each tent. The surrounding landscape is truly timeless: woods, olive groves, and streams flowing towards the river just 10 minutes from the tent. Here, you can take a bath in crystal-clear water amidst the woods. And to top it off, there are also 2 pools available near the tents, offering a beautiful view of the valley.

Celebrating a birthday under the stars in a Bubble tent in Tuscia 

If you've decided to organize a weekend with friends to celebrate a birthday or a special event, on Garden Sharing you'll find an event room set up in a transparent structure immersed in an uncontaminated environment. We're in the Viterbo Tuscia, in an incredible location that adds a touch of magic to every event, making it truly unforgettable. But that's not all: ever tried the experience of going to bed with the room illuminated only by the starry sky? In addition to celebrating, you can also sleep in a geodesic tent (or bubble room), designed to offer a unique experience, combining the charm of sleeping outdoors with the comforts of a hotel room. Here, you and your friends can admire the night sky in total privacy, pampered by luxurious king-size beds. Your experience will be made even more special thanks to the private bathroom, winter heating, and summer air conditioning. And if you desire further relaxation, just a few steps away, you'll find a complete SPA with a hot tub and Finnish sauna, all in perfect harmony with the surrounding nature.

Glamping a stone's throw from the crystalline sea of Salento 

If you want to experience the thrill of a trendy vacation in Salento but don't like the idea of sharing your space with hordes of lively kids, here's a ready-to-use solution for you: glamping among the olive trees with direct access to the Acquaviva cove. Between Porto Badisco and Santa Maria di Leuca, surrounded by the scents of the Mediterranean scrub, there are elegant and spacious 5-meter tents in an almost exclusive facility. Here, you can also rent comfortable bicycles ideal for exploring the surrounding landscape and admire the crystalline sea, treating yourself to a sunset swim when the beach empties out. The area is rich in hidden coves ideal for discovering the local vegetation, such as Bocca d'Inferno, where you can encounter both typical Mediterranean scrub vegetation and a spring-fed stream.

The starry sky of Sicily seen from a panoramic tent

 Sicily is always a good idea for all seasons. The area between Syracuse and Ragusa is a true paradise for lovers of the sea, gastronomy, and ancient history. Among charming historic centers like those of Syracuse and Ragusa Ibla, UNESCO heritage archaeological sites, and picturesque fishing villages like Marzamemi and Capo Passero, you'll experience a unique and special holiday. And at the end of the day, you'll love relaxing with an aperitif in the outdoor hot tub of this family-run glamping site. Finely furnished tents made with natural materials will pamper your dreams inside a beautiful farm where you'll also find a shopping corner with many local products, and creative afternoons with workshops dedicated to recycled materials, etc. And before going to bed, don't forget to look at the stars and make a wish.
