13 Of The Best European Airbnbs That You Can Fly To Right Now

At this point it’s been over two years since my last foreign holiday and I’m feeling it. I’ve been daydreaming about golden, sandy beaches, crystal clear waters, napping in the sunshine and all the different flavours of Fanta you can get abroad. It’s got so bad that I spend all my lunch hours carefully curating a dedicated Instagram bookmark: ‘Places I’m Escaping To ASAP’.

And sure, the Cornish coast, lakes of Cumbria and Scottish Highlands have proven worthy challengers over the past year, but sometimes you just can’t beat a true Spanish Sangria or European city break.

Now, with travel restrictions lifting and many of us double vaxxed, its looking like international holidays are back on the cards. Currently (and ever since rules changed on July 19), fully NHS-vaccinated UK residents returning from countries on the government’s amber list can follow the same rules as those returning from green list countries. Namely, you can now enjoy quarantine-free travel but still have to follow rules around testing.

So, to celebrate, we’ve rounded up a list of the best 13 Airbnbs across Europe’s most popular amber and green list destinations; from Amsterdam to Barcelona, Copenhagen to Croatia. Consider this the perfect lunchtime read if you too have been dreaming of some late summer sun.

*Please note that the rules and regulations discussed in this article pertain only to England. You can find more information about travel rules for Wales here, Scotland here, Northern Ireland here and the Republic of Ireland here.

Boutique Hotel Room, Barcelona

Location: Barcelona, Spain

A compact but cosy double room is perfect for a long weekend. Bonuses include your own balcony and communal roof terrace.

Michael’s Place, Copenhagen

Location: Copenhagen, Denmark
List? Green list
Rate: £88 per night
Guests: 4Bright, airy, clean and comfortable – what more could you want from an Airbnb? Inside, Michael’s place is decorated like your dream Pinterest home, filled with plants and clean, simple Scandi design. Location-wise, it’s perfect for a city break, walk one direction and you’re just two minutes from the Central Station, walk the other way and you’ll find the Copenhagen Harbour Bath and waterfront.

Luxury Houseboat, Berlin

Location: Berlin, Germany
List? Green list
Rate: £154 per night
Guests: 2A stay here is definitely not cheap, but when a houseboat is this luxurious, with a large roof terrace, wood burning fire, central location and those stunning views of the Havel river, who can blame us for including it?

Canal House, Amsterdam

Location: Amsterdam, Netherlands
List? Amber list
Rate: £153 per night

Vila Formosa, Madeira

Location: Funchal, Madeira, Portugal
List? Green list
Rate: £337 per night

Nørrebro Loft by the Lakes, Copenhagen

Location: Copenhagen, Denmark
List? Green list
Rate: £127 per night
