Top 10 Airbnb Rentals in Europe for Under $200

Summer is on the horizon and with it comes the chance to slow down, taking time to get away for a week (or two!). And while summer can be one of the best times of the year to visit Europe, prices typically soar right now—so it can be a hard feat to plan a summertime European jaunt on a budget.

That said, vacation rentals have made things a little (or a lot!) easier. Nowadays, you can manage to snag a beautifully designed Airbnb for a reasonable price and this means you’ll have more to spend on a baguette and rosé (the necessities).

We’ve rounded up ten of our favorite rentals across Europe for your next getaway. Happy travels!

1. Glamping Near Bath – Wiltshire, UK 

For a camping escape that still offers modern amenities (like comfy beds and showers), “glamping” (glam camping) is the way to go. This farm property near Bath is not your typical campsite! The yurts are beautifully decorated, bathrooms and showers are available, and there’s even an indoor pool for guests. The location feels remote and tranquil, so it’s perfect for those wanting to get off the grid for a few days. Bath is nearby if you’re looking for more activity during your stay, and there’s a nearby village (Winsley) to explore as well.

Cost: $117/night
Accommodates: 2 people

2. Château de Barnay – South Burgundy, France

How many times in your life are you going to stay in a castle in France—let alone for under $200 a night? It’s hard to believe, but this is an actual castle in Burgundy, just ready to be rented. The interior feels decidedly rustic and French, but despite it being a very old building, you’ll still find all the modern amenities you need. With three bedrooms, it’s a wonderful option for families or a group of friends looking for a relaxing week in Burgundy. Though it’s somewhat isolated (as a castle should be), you can easily rent a car and explore the neighboring areas.

Cost: $145/night
Accommodates: 7 people

3. Historic Sea View – Palermo, Italy

Located in Palermo, this apartment boasts a great location, views of the water, and a design that is beautifully executed. The host is passionate about up-cycling and, as result, much of the furniture and art is handmade using a variety of up-cycled materials. The apartment itself is located in a hip, lively neighborhood, and it’s an easy walk to many of the major city sites. A balcony with a sea view makes for the perfect spot to have a morning cup of coffee before starting the day.

Cost: $87/night

4. Design Apartment – Oslo, Norway

Though it’s an Airbnb listing, this apartment feels almost hotel-like with its impeccable decor, fluffy bed linens, and extra amenities. The kitchen comes well equipped with all you need to make a meal during your stay, an iMac is available for use, and the host has been known to leave chocolates on your pillow! Though the apartment itself is quiet, it has easy access to restaurants and bars nearby. The host has been given rave reviews by previous travelers and is more than happy to assist you (if you have any questions or need Oslo travel tips).

5. Houseboat – Amsterdam, Netherlands

This modern house right on the water is perfect, especially if you like staying in unique spots just off the beaten path. Though it’s not located in central Amsterdam, a nearby bus can have you there in no time.

The house itself is unbelievably charming with a fantastic kitchen, airy living areas, and a private floating terrace.

Cost: $140/night

6. Eiffel Tower View – Paris, France

You may think this listing is a scam when you first see it because it seems impossible to stay this close to the Eiffel Tower, right? Luckily for you, this property is real and so close to the tower that you can practically reach out and touch it. As the view probably suggests, it’s centrally located so you’ll be close to all the major city sites. The host even provides you with breakfast, which you can enjoy while experiencing one of the best views in the world.

Cost: $151/night

7. Loft with Pool – Rome, Italy

Though this property looks like a lush, coastal property complete with a pool, it’s located right in the heart of Rome! The beautiful beamed ceilings are a showstopper, along with a private patio perfect for an evening glass of wine. If you’re heading to Rome in the summertime, the property’s shared pool will most definitely be a plus. And the property is close to many of the city’s major sites—a quick 15-20 minute walk will lead you right to the Colosseum.

Cost: $140/night

10. Cubehouse – Rotterdam, Netherlands

This cubehouse in central Rotterdam is easily one of the most unique places you could stay while visiting.

On Tuesday and Thursdays, an outdoor market appears right in front of the property—its perfect for picking up supplies, especially if you’re planning on cooking in.
