Garden Sharing is the portal dedicated to those who love tourism in freedom, travelling in a camper, caravan or even just with a backpack and a tent to pitch in a safe place, perhaps in the middle of nature.
Users can search for a space by setting the location, see the pictures and descriptions posted by the space owner, our Garden Sharers, evaluate the services offered and the activities in the vicinity of the area and book their pitch.
Garden Sharers can publish spaces such as a garden or land they own or a space with ready-made accommodation such as a tent, a bungalow, a tree house, at the price they prefer, or they can offer the possibility of an Experience. From painting or cooking classes to learning the basics of an ancient craft or simply offering a bike tour to see the beauty of the place, there are many activities that you can do on Garden Sharing!
Garden Sharers can provide a free space of their own where guests can set up their own tent or park their camper or caravan.
Garden sharers can also set up their own space complete with ready-to-stay accommodation, i.e. with a tent already erected, a camper van or caravan parked in the garden and not used, a yurt, a tree house...and leave room for the creativity of the garden sharers!
The price of the pitches are alwaysdecided by the Gardensharers, as well as the various services they can offer guests, be it a barbecue, a private or shared bathroom, an outside table and chairs, a swimming pool, etc...
