The Best Airbnbs Available For Rent In The Mediterranean Right Now

Thank us later.

Whether you’re sipping shots in a club in Ibiza or scrolling through your Instagram feed in the middle of Australia’s winter, you’ll be feeling the effects of the European summer. From June to August every year, nobody can escape the buzz, the culture, the heat of Europe’s busiest season.

To make the whole thing a little easier, we rounded up the very best Airbnbs for grabbing a group of friends and prop your feet up.

Turkey

Istanbul is one of the world’s most visited cities for a reason. It’s location across both Europe and Asia makes it a haven for culture, food and things to do.

If you’re heading there this summer, we reckon the Urban Bridge Residence is a good place to stay. The architecturally designed loft-style house isn’t only beautiful and centrally located, but it’s big enough for you and seven mates. Score.

Morocco

Yes, Morocco is as beautiful as your Instagram feed would have you believe. And if that’s anything to go by, you can’t really stay in Marrakech without having your own private pool.

If you stay at this traditional private home, you’ll get a pool, a central location and enough room for lots and lots of friends. You couldn’t come up with anywhere better to relax if you tried.

Greece

When you picture Greece, it’s probably the version with Lena and Kostas from the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, right? White buildings capped with bright blue roofs? Donkeys roaming the sidewalks? Beautiful views of the Mediterranean sea everywhere you look?

Well, this Airbnb has all of those things. It’s as quintessential as Santorini comes but only sleeps two people, so leave your mates at home and find someone to snuggle with.

Spain

If you can only visit one city in Spain, Barcelona is a pretty good choice. It’s got Gaudi’s Sagrada Familia, tapas restaurants operating into the early hours, world famous clubs, a very good music festival and that huge city beach you’ve heard so much about.

It’s a good idea to stay somewhere in the midst of it all, so try this one on for size. It’s a classic studio apartment located right in the city, with a metro station nearby and a cute little balcony to wave at passersby.

France

If you’re going to do Paris — which you need to — you have to do it in style. The city is not only the capital of France but the unofficial worldwide capital of class.

This Airbnb has that ‘So Frenchy! So Chic!’ vibes sorted for you. It’s an 18th century mansion located in the 8th arrondissement, just a short walk away from the Louvre.

Italy

Yes, this is your view.

Florence is Rome’s beautiful younger sister; a city that will capture your heart the minute you step foot in it. If you stay at this Airbnb, you get to witness the beautiful domed rooftops of the old town. Of course, there’s beds, a kitchen, bathrooms, blah blah blah, but the view is all you need to worry about.

Croatia

Croatia is very good for sailing, lounging and cocktail sipping, but it doesn’t stop there. There’s also the mind-blowing architecture, sought-after national parks and King’s Landing for ogling.

As well as being conveniently located five minutes from the Old Town, this Airbnb has its very own view over the clay-roofed city and the expansive ocean. You can share it with four mates.
