As the world (slowly) starts to reopen, it’s time to (finally) start planning your next international trip. From a swoon-worthy Florence studio overlooking the Cathedral to a Cape Town rental flanked by mountain, city, and water vistas, these four Airbnbs (@airbnb) — each with incredible, panoramic views of its unique surroundings — will not disappoint.
Located in the coastal region of Valparaiso — best known for its beautiful beaches and surfing opportunities — this Chilean vacation rental is surrounded by rocks, gardens, and, of course, picturesque sea views. Plus, its interiors are just as magnificent as the views. Guests can expect industrial-inspired design touches, along with massive floor-to-ceiling windows and plenty of wood paneling.
Indulge in a much-needed solo getaway and book a stay at this artist studio in Florence, which boasts awe-inspiring views of the Duomo and Cathedral. The studio itself is housed in a 17th century-era building located along world-famous Piazza Duomo. Expect lots of natural light, soaring ceilings, original artwork, and handcrafted furnishings galore.
This quaint cottage is located in the rural region of Andalusia, where you’ll find rolling acres of hills, farmland, and rivers. The vacation rental — with its stone walls, wood ceilings, and cozy fireplace — feels as if it was plucked straight out of a fairytale. Here, guests can enjoy sweeping views of the surrounding mountains and valleys: best enjoyed on the private terrace, of course.
Take in postcard-worthy views straight from this slick Cape Town apartment, which overlooks the bay, mountains, and city. Its open concept design exudes an industrial-chic, uber-modern aesthetic that also allows for seamless indoor-outdoor living. Highlights include an enclosed “secret” garden and outdoor seating. However, the main draw? The expansive, 430-square-foot balcony.
