Let’s be honest. I think we all dream about going on an enviable European vacation of one that involves trekking (lavishly of course!) from country to country soaking in all that the beautifully diverse continent has to offer. Whether it’s tasting all of Italy’s culinary masterpieces or skiing through the Swiss Alps, there are tons of hotels waiting for you! Check out my list of the 10 most gorgeous hotels in Europe.
The recently renovated Four Seasons Gresham Palace gives you a quick look at what Budapest is all about. The outside retains its original 20th-century opulence while the inside maintains an eclectic sophistication with velvet couches, parquet flooring, and cream colored rooms. Stay with friends or family and this trip will definitely be a memorable one!
Nestled among rolling hills, Tuscan vineyards, and olive groves, the Castello Di Casole is basically your own version of Under the Tuscan Sun (you know, that Diane Lane movie). Formerly a castle, this cozy boutique hotel features exposed wood beamed ceilings, stone walls and luxurious fabrics to create an authentic feel. It really is the perfect place to stay while enjoying the legendary Tuscany.
With a location that overlooks Lake Zurich and the Alps, the Baur au Lac is truly a luxurious hotel. Boasting more than 170 years in the industry, this hotel knows how to wine and dine their guests. This would be a perfect place to stay for a girl’s trip as it is just minutes away from Zurich shopping high street. With custom made furniture, marble bathrooms, and, oh yeah, a Michelin starred restaurant, this hotel is definitely one to keep in the forefront of your mind!
Sitting in the heart of Paris, The Peninsula Paris is just a short walk from sites like the Arc de Triomphe, Champs Elysee, and the incredible museums that the City of Light is known for. Keeping its 19th-century facade, the hotel has been subtly modernized to further elevate guests experiences. Adorned in hues of soft greys and creams, this hotel epitomizes luxury. And just like the rest of the city, the Peninsula Paris is impeccably chic.
Established in the center of Czech Republic’s capital city, the Mandarin Oriental Hotel is a modern oasis in a city filled with centuries-old history. This hotel incorporates the city’s historic charm to create a refined sense of style. Stroll up to the Prague Castle, come back for a soothing massage, and wrap up your day with an unforgettable meal at the Spices Restaurant and Bar. Now that sounds like a fun trip!
You can absolutely bet that this one is on my bucket list! Located on the stunning Island of Capri, the J.K. Place Capri overlooks the beautiful Gulf of Naples. If you’re looking for a unique way to discover Italy, this is the way to do it! This hotel exudes coastal vibes in every way. Decorated in various hues of white and blue, the J.K. Place Capri is the ideal place to stay during your next escape to Italy.
Known as “Amsterdam’s living room”, the Conservatorium Hotel is located in Amsterdam’s Museum Square, the cultural heart of the city. It fits right in with its location with an intricate architectural design that embodies the contemporary features the city is known for. I love that they integrated natural light with wood beams to generate an extremely elegant and sophisticated look.
Visit the Cote d’Azur the right way and stay at the Château de la Chèvre d’Or. Seated between Monaco and Nice, this former artists’ retreat is cobblestone paths, uniquely decorated rooms, and breathtaking sea views. The suites are structured in three different categories: Classic, Tradition and Elegance. The classic being the perfect room for the minimalistic guest, tradition for the guest who wants to take in the local flair, and elegance for the modern guest who wants an equally sophisticated place to wind down. Whatever option you choose will be perfect!
Located on the picturesque island of Santorini, the Andronis Luxury Suites is perfect for a much needed relaxing vacay. Overlooking the Aegean Sea and the iconic white-washed architecture, this place is absolutely stunning. Designed with a traditional Mediterranean color palette in mind, the villas mimic the beautiful blues, whites, and luscious greens found throughout the region. From a famous restaurant to a rejuvenating spa experience to the amazing view you’ll have throughout your stay, this place has it all!
I absolutely cannot wait to visit them all!
