The European Historic Houses (EHH) gathers 24 national associations of owners-managers of private historic houses and gardens in 22 European countries. We act as a platform sharing best-practices among our members; and work to promote owners-managers’ interests in several policy areas including reduced VAT rates for heritage works, energy efficiency regulations, or tourism policies.

EHH encourages citizens to acknowledge the enormous amount of effort, time, passion and money which owners put into saving and preserving heritage for the future. Overall, private owners look after 41% of all heritage assets in Europe – so it’s very important that we encourage good maintenance with financial and educational support.
