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.
A Coastal Chilean Hideaway
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.
A Dreamy Artist Studio in Florence
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.
A Cozy Cottage In Spain
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.
This Contemporary Cape Town Studio
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.
