42 best Airbnbs in Europe, from glass cabins in Norway to chic apartments in Amsterdam

Sometimes European hotels can be too expensive, too cookie-cutter, too… hotelier. When we’re looking for that “home away from home” feeling with a touch of luxury – or maybe a hint of quirkiness – we turn to Airbnb for glass cabins in Norway, castles in Ireland, houses cave dwellings in Greece and some of the fanciest urban apartments we have ever seen.

We’ve done extensive research to find the coolest Airbnbs in Europe (while some countries don’t have a ton of viable options, over 40 are included below), compiling a list of rentals for everyone. styles and all budgets. To further assist you in your planning process, we include a helpful tip on what to do in the area when visiting.

As a bonus, all of these picks are run by Superhosts, who each have a rating of 4.8 or higher, a record of zero cancellations, and a response rate of at least 90%, which means that even if they receive tons of requests, they will get back to you ASAP.

While we haven’t stayed at all of the rentals featured, unless otherwise noted, these listings are verified based on Superhost status, amenities, location, previous guest reviews, and decor.
