These beautiful villas are on our bucket list for the next backpacking trip to Europe

If you are looking to escape the blistering Indian heat wave, there’s no better way than a luxurious European getaway. Villas in Europe, usually situated in beautiful, quiet environs, can provide a better experience with friends or family than a block of hotel rooms. The rental villas in Europe come with private pools, a picturesque backdrop and an intimate ambiance for a peaceful vacation. We choose the five best rental villa locations for summer holidays in France, Greece, Spain and the rest of Europe.


Provence, France | Age-Old houses dotting the landscape, the lure of shopping in quaint Saint-Rémy-de-Provence or local markets, or mountain biking along rough village byways makes it the perfect spot for your summer getaway.


Mallorca, Spain | The scenic view of the clouds embracing the peak of Mallorca’s Sierra Tramuntana Mountains, the occasional sound of cowbells, and pathways lined with olive groves, makes it a whimsical escape.


Peloponnese, Greece | A dreamy escape for those who adore Grecian lands and their rich cultural heritage. Bordered by a beautiful coastline, the ruins at Olympia, and the Temples of Apollo make it a wonder to behold.


Turkey | The mountainside is peppered with pretty villages on Turkey’s Lycian coast. Lycia, the lesser known town is a maze of streets with soft-sand beaches, crystal water, and several impressive sites along the coast.

Dubrovnik, Croatia | An old town with palaces, monasteries and churches, Dubrovnik has been dubbed as the ‘Pearl of the Adriatic’. The houses have pools to laze away an afternoon, and in the evening one could attend the musical recitals that fill the city’s churches.
