The Agricamper Italia platform offers to subscribers an alternative to the well-trodden tourist routes. This is a travel experience that values the local countryside and its traditions, authenticity and sustainability.

For an annual fee of €29, you can stay free for 24 hours right across the country at over 120 private premises in Agricamper Italia’s network, such as farms, smallholdings, vineyards, rural B&Bs and other host venues. Through contact with the owners, you will learn about them, find out about the “gems” in the area, try local food specialities and – why not? – help the local economy by buying typical produce.

In France, I used to climb into my 1974 Volkswagen T2 Westfalia and go off to discover the country. Travelling in a minivan or camper gives you a real feeling of freedom,” says Pauline Nava, founder of Agricamper Italia. “When I moved to Italy five years ago with my family, I realised the country had no network to give people the experience of travelling in close contact with the history, traditions or countryside of each region. So, following the “Formule Invitation” of France Passion, which has been successful in France for 27 years, I decided to start Agricamper Italia to offer camper owners in this country and abroad a network guaranteed to welcome them with originality, local flavours and sustainability.” Local producers the length of Italy have supported the plan, as well as many associations, federations, communities and small businesses, both for its tourist development potential and to protect and give value to the “made in Italy” label. Supporters of Agricamper Italia include La Federazione Italiana Vignaioli (Italian Federation of Vinegrowers, www.fivi.it), which promotes the quality and authenticity of Italian wines; the Associazione UNIONBIRRAI – small independent brewers (www.unionbirrai.it), a collective label guaranteeing the independence and artisan manufacture of its member brands; Yescapa (www.yescapa.com), a European platform for private camper shares; the largest community of camper owners in Italy and Europe, Camperisti italiani (www.camperisti-italiani.com) and ACTItalia (www.actitalia.it), the national federation of Italian camper owners, established in 1942.

Through a multi-lingual website (IT EN DE FR NL), www.agricamper-italia.com, and the up-coming app (Android and iOS), camper owners will have regularly updated information available offline, with detailed lists to help them choose host venues, the services and products they offer, comments and photos and also travel distances, directions and GPS coordinates.

About Agricamper Italia: a site supporting rural mobile tourism, created in 2020 from an idea by the young entrepreneur Pauline Nava with the objective of promoting a form of travel experience where local producers (hosts) and guests meet face to face, respecting tradition, typicity and sustainability. By subscribing to Agricamper Italia’s national network for an annual fee of €29, camper owners can stay free for 24 hours in the private premises listed on the platform. A multi-lingual website (IT EN DE FR NL) and an up-coming app (Android and iOS) allow travellers to receive updated information that can be consulted offline: details of the host venues, the services and products they offer, comments and photos, as well as travel distances, directions and GPS coordinates.
