20 Places to Stay in Europe this Summer

20 Places to Stay in Europe this Summer

9th July 2020

Summer holidays abroad could be back on with the introduction of 'air bridges' between the UK and most of Europe, meaning you won't have to go into quarantine when you get home. The list of 59 countries the government now deems a 'reduced risk' from coronavirus includes most of the top holiday destinations (although at present Scotland doesn't yet have an air bridge with Spain). There's plenty of summer availability still to be had and we've picked some of our favourite gorgeous villas, quirky treehouses, stylish chateaux and converted chapels around France, Spain and Italy. Remember to always check the latest government guidelines and travel safely.
