Where do you like to stay in Europe?

Are you a big resort type of traveler or a small local hotel or maybe an agriturismo out in the country or a villa with many bedrooms and baths. We all have favorite places and types of places we like. I enjoy a local hotel. I am tired of big American hotels that don’t offer much. I prefer a family run small hotel with a private bath. The bath is one luxury I insist on. Jo Anne says “Camping is a hotel with one bathroom”. It is hard and expensive to get more than one bath unless you rent a villa. The villa is another great idea especially if you are traveling with one or more other couples. You each get a bedroom and possibly a bathroom. Kitchens allow you to partake in the local foods and cook a meal. The small hotels and villas allow you to interface with the locals better. Get to know the people, the food and the wine in each area you visit.

  1. Agriturismo all the way for us. Pro tip: make sure you know what forms of payment are accepted. Through a slight language misunderstanding, we found ourselves in need of 600 Euro’s cash in a small town in order to check out. Chalk it up to exciting travel experiences!

    • Yes cash is important especially in smaller cities. We bought furniture for our place and found out they only took cash. I try to have cash for the night and if I use it I look for an ATM.
