assisted living with home share in europeA European wide homeshare gateway. You can post and search advertisements for FREE, for a variety of residential accommodation and homes in Europe.


   What is Homeshare and what are the benefits?

    • Home sharing is where two or more people live in a property together and each person has a separate sleeping area.
    • The home owner/provider is considered as someone who requires assisted living* as they may be elderly or disabled.
    • Sharing a property will reduce your living costs.
    • The property is likely to be furnished.
    • Create friendships based on trust with people you live with.

*Homeshare is different from house and flat sharing as house sharing is not defined to include assisted living, where the rental cost (if any) for a care giver who lives with a person is likely to be less. Visit the ECHS house / flat share directory page if your preference is not for a homeshare commitment.

The ECHS website is FREE to use! However, to advertise or view the contact details of an advertisement, you need to register with ECHS (using the "Register" link at the top of this page), which is free, quick and simple. The link to "ADVERTISE" only appears in the left column of this page after you register and/or log in!

When you complete the registration form, an e-mail is then sent to you (which may take a few minutes to arrive) and you can then activate your account. When you have an ECHS account, you are able to advertise a European property for homesharing and view the contact details of other listed advertisements, when you make a search. Please note: It is possible that the e-mail may arrive in your junk or spam mail, so check this area of your e-mail account with "ECHS" in the e-mail title. Save the e-mail address in your address book!

To search for homeshare households, select the Homes to rent link on the “Adverts Quick Search” menu, in the left column of this page, and look for homeshare properties. If you are searching for a person to be part of a homeshare, then click on the people link. You can then, through an Advanced Search filter your preferred status of people who want to homeshare.

You can watch any short chapters of the ECHS Quick Video User Guide, which includes the basics on how to register, advertise and search adverts using the ECHS website.

When you advertise with ECHS you will expose your property, not only for the country of your advertisement but to people all over Europe and the world, who may want exactly what you are advertising. The European abode that you advertise must be a residential property (a place to live in.) Please read these Rules..! before you decide to advertise with ECHS.

For more details about a Homeshare have a look at the ECHS tips on sharing a home.

What category do I post my advertisement in?
ECHS has 6 categories to post an advertisement in. However as a registered user you only need and should advertise in 1 category, depending on your advertisement. If you are posting your advertisement for European Homeshare there are two options: 

  1. If you are offering a room or accommodation, advertise under the category - Rent - . As rent is not normally paid in a homeshare agreement (usually just the utility costs), the costs and the conditions should be stated in the Advert Details field when you create or edit your advertisement.
  2. If you are a person without a living place and want a Homeshare, you should advertise yourself under the category - People - and select the status "I want to have a homeshare".

The Euro (€) is the default currency for advertisements, that include costs. An input field "Value in local currency" is on the advertisement forms and this field must be completed if the currency of the country of your advertisement is not the Euro (€.) If you need to convert the Euro or another currency, try the Personal Currency Assistant in the right column of this page.
