An innovative design

We owe this original creation to the genius of the British designer Alex Shirley-Smith. This creative inventor was looking for a way to allow everyone to be able to experience the feeling of living in the trees. Thus, was born this innovative idea that has since been a success worldwide.

The height at which the tent is installed makes it easier to pitch a tent in many more locations than normal, since you don’t have to worry about the ground topography and meteorological conditions. Tentsile combines a feeling of comfort, due to its flexible surface, with a sense of security created by its solid structure.

Eco-friendly

This bold structure also hides a great ecological concern. The team hopes that this new way of camping will show people how important it is to think about our impact on the environment and to adopt a more respectful attitude toward nature. Maybe one day, when all the world has observed the forest from its Tentsile perched in the trees, people will begin to give more value to nature and trees and, at the same time, spend more time outside.

Comfortable accommodations

With its unique design, the tent of the future offers comfortable and spacious accommodations in any environment. The Tentsile is attached to three points in order to effectively support its triangular surface. It has a door that opens with a zipper for easy access, and a removable mesh ceiling that allows you to enjoy the starry night. The Stingray model can accommodate up to three adults or two adults and two children. This is perfect for the whole family, while the smaller Connect model is ideal for couples, as it can accommodate only two adults.

Versatile

All Tentsile tents come with all the necessary elements for quick and easy installation in ten minutes, including an instruction manual. For security reasons, to avoid the risk of injury and to facilitate access, it is recommended that you install the tent at a height not exceeding 1.2 m above ground level. In addition, the Tentsile can be used for various purposes such as outdoor activities, expeditions and festivals and even for scientific research or as temporary shelter during natural disasters.

Magical
