What are Vacation Rentals?

Vacation Rentals Guide

by Pauline Kenny, November 2013

In the last decade vacation rentals have become popular in North America, but they have been a popular accommodation choice in Europe for decades, even centuries. Vacation rentals in Europe are different from what we find in North America. This section explains those differences so you know what to expect.

Here on Slow Europe we have listed agencies and rent-by-owner sites, as well as all the resources you need to make informed decisions and book your vacation rental. We are passionate about this type of travel accommodations and hope you will be too.
