Destination guide

Excitement at every turn in Europe

Europe – it's what bucket lists are made of. From the Swiss Alps glowing like icing sugar above the clouds to the beaches of the Adriatic, shimmering blue and aquamarine, it's hard to believe one land mass can pack so much in. Travelling here means encountering Baltic dumplings and primeval Polish forests, Scandi-design cities and Parisian wine bars, eerie English castles and lonely Greek islands. If you think you can handle it all, Europe holiday rentals are ready and waiting, ranging from ski-in, ski-out chalets in the Pyrenees to lux villas amid the rustic hill towns of Tuscany.

Things to do

Shorten the bucket list in Europe

Europe holiday rentals in Rome are a ticket to the soaring Colosseum and the Pantheon, the Vatican and the Roman Forum – some of the most-visited landmarks on the globe. Those seeking stays in Paris need only glance across the cityscape to spy out the silhouette of the Eiffel Tower and domed Montmartre. London rentals mean glimpses of Big Ben and Buckingham Palace. Athens pads have the Parthenon on the menu. You get the idea. Just get the marker pen ready because that bucket list is about to take a hit…


Endless possibilities in Europe

There are few places on Earth where you can blaze runs down powdered ski slopes an hour before lazing on glowing beaches. There are few places where you can master the art of Italian pizza making before strapping on the hiking boots to conquer glacial mountains. Or where you can wonder at Gothic castles and cutting-edge Nordic architecture in the same trip. Europe's got all those covered and more. Families can laze on sun-splashed Greek isles. Adventurers can pitch tents on Scottish lochs. Cyclists can weave through the Dolomites, while culture lovers have Florence, Paris, Rome and other great cities.


Always a draw in Europe

The cycle of the seasons only refocuses the spotlight in Europe. During the winter it's the Alps and the Pyrenees that take centre stage, drawing skiers and jet setters to resorts in Switzerland and France and others between December and March. In spring months like April and May, the flowering Polish Tatras and the warming Greek islands wake for the season. Summer – from June to August – is travel time extraordinaire, when Europe holiday rentals in Spain, Italy, Croatia and other sunny climes fill to bursting.

Natural features

Glaciers to great seas in Europe

Europe is one of the most geographically diverse continents on the globe. Topping out with the mighty Caucasus of Georgia and the glacial tips of the French Alps, things only end when the land tumbles down to meet sloshing seas like the Med and the Baltic. Primeval forests host hulking bison in Poland, while the dusty Spanish Sierra Nevada are stalked by black bears. Greece is fragmented into countless islands of blinding beaches, while landlocked nations like Austria are all green pastures and snowy peaks. It's impossible to pin it down.
