Welcome at the

European Association of Second Residence Owners


EASRO, the European Association of Secondary Residence Owners, is an independent European-wide association that brings together second residence owners and represents their interests:

  • We share information and through the forum we give members the space to share information and ask questions on a country-by-country or topic basis.
  • We take actions to ensure a good quality of life between local communities and second home residents.
  • We establish contacts with political leaders and strive for a sound policy on second-home residents.

In May 2020, we took action, both through petitions and political pressure at the regional and European levels, to get the Belgian borders opened as soon as possible if health conditions allows this. In this way, links were created with different owner groups in various countries and this is now being expanded after the necessary preparations.

Following the proposal of the European Commission on March 17th, the forum on Digital Green Certificate has been launched.
