From the Hawaii of Europe to the Italian and Swiss alps to Macedonia and Poland, Europe is the perfect place for hikers. These 8 AirBnBs are the perfect bases to relax after a long day on the trails. 

Life on the Sea

Every September we plan our “beach” trip. Last year, we went to the Algarve. This year, we’re leaning towards Croatia (I mean who would turn down the above flat?!). If Croatia and the Algarve aren’t cutting it don’t worry – there are 10 awesome spots on the map ranging from Spain, Malta, Greece, and even Sweden that would fulfill any sea lover’s hopes and dreams.

Romantic Views

I love a good view. In fact, if there’s one theme of all of the AirBnBs on the map it’s that almost all of them have a dreamy overlook of some dramatic landscape be it mountains, sea, or city. These 7 AirBnBs offer the best of the best in terms of views in Europe. Can you imagine sipping a glass of wine overlooking the Austrian wine valley? What about the Tuscan hills? Santorini? You can have all of these! 

Unique Living Quarters

If you follow the blog you know that I love “glamping.” From our stay in West Cork to Loch Ness in Scotland we’ve fallen hard for unique places to stay. These 6 AirBnBs will take you from a hobbit house in Wales to a traditional Trullo in Italy to a cave in the Canary Islands and more! If you’re looking for a unique experience in Europe you can’t go wrong with these homes. 

European City Life

You can’t go wrong with a city break in Europe. AirBnB gives a unique perspective since you often stay smack dab in the middle of a local neighborhood. If you want a truly local experience, AirBnB is the way to go and these 9 homes will put you right in the center of the action with the comfort of a “home” to come back to. 

Where on the list would you stay? For us, our fall beach trip is top of mind so Croatia is calling our names! 

Happy Trekking!

    Over the last year I have really become a fan of airbnb and wow you have really found some gems! Pinned this so that I can check these options out when I am planning my future trips.

    • Danielle from Boots not Roots

      I’m glad you enjoyed it Anisa! We’re really excited to try out some of these places this year!

  • Jacky

    For some reason we have never tried AirBnB, but these Welsh hobbit houses make me rethink this entirely 😍

    • Danielle from Boots not Roots

      You really should! It’s my favorite way of finding accommodation in Europe. Either AirBnBs or locally owned Bed and Breakfasts, etc. I try really hard to avoid chain hotels.

  • I love everything about Airbnb. We are hosts as well as renters. Traveling with a family of five – we don’t fit in an average European hotel room – taking two rooms is not only cost-prohibitive, but breaks up the family unit (not ALWAYS bad, when you have teens in tow!) We like the ability to cook a few meals in to save costs and besides visiting the local market and grocery store helps us see how the “locals” live, what’s available at the market and ponder – HOW do i cook THAT! 😉 I am also a huge supporter of Airbnb’s philosophy of advocating for inclusion and celebrating our differences. #weaccept campaign has a beautiful message. Great post and YES – I would love to rent some of these, usually I’m more spontaneous and don’t end up with the MOST perfect place, but always something that fits our family and puts us right where we want to be when traveling! Cheers from Copenhagen! #FarawayFiles, Erin

      I loved that you shared AirBnB’s #weaccept ad this week on the blog and I’m so glad I’m not the only one who loves the mission and goal of this company. While AirBnB is not perfect, they try to be. 🙂

      You should! Thanks for stopping by Kerrie!

  • Untold Morsels

    AirBnB has really shaken up the accommodation market. It’s now so much more affordable to travel as a family and you get to stay in some cool places like the ones you mentioned. Our favourites so far are a houseboat in Amsterdam, a chateau in France and an eco-lodge in Bali. I’d love to stay in a castle one day too! Thanks for sharing with us on #FarawayFiles

    • Danielle Wisniewski

      We have also stayed in a houseboat in Amsterdam and absolutely loved it! There are awesome castles up for rent in Ireland if you ever happen to pop over here. 😉

    These all look so wonderful, Danielle. I really fancy a hobbit hole! It’s great how affordable all these are. Airbnb has been such a revelation for self-catering accommodation. We used in quite a few times last year, some more successfully than others. The Paris studio was far too tiny but our Lisbon flat was perfect for a family break and so affordable and stylish. Thanks for sharing on #farawayfiles

    • Danielle from Boots not Roots

      I’m glad you liked it Clare! AirBnB can be a hit or miss that’s for sure, but it’s sometimes worth the risk. The excitement alone is enough for me. 🙂
