I noticed that a lot of you fine people are from the US, but nonetheless, is anyone here from Europe?

Me and my wife have already started planning our April/May trip, so we are trying to set up a nice route.

We will be spending most of our time in Northern and Central Italy (Lake Como, Lake Garda, Genoa, Portofino, Siena, Florence), but will be moving through Austria, France and Germany as well.
So if you are in any of these countries or know of a good place to stay at, please suggest it here.

Cheers!

If you pass by Lyon, en route between Paris and Italy, we are just a few minutes off the motorway, close to the Beaujolais vineyards.

If you go to D-Day beaches, my cousin have a nice B&B in Bayeux. Good location.. Best comments on TripAdvisor & Booking.

His website is tour-louise.com. Nice chap!

 

Of course, when possible, try to book direct to the owners so they do not have to pay the Booking.com tax.

We stayed at a few places, but Manoir du Parc in Amboise was very nice. Not really B&B from our perspective, but the owner was particularly nice and the room was very nice. We also stayed at the number 1 hotel in Chinon, which was nice, but our room wasn't spectacular and 50 jams spread over the tables means you have to hunt. Breakfasts were particularly spartan and plain in France (I long for Venetian breakfasts!) Oh and in Venice, Hotel Grande Canale, which was worth every penny just for the front desk help.

The Netherlands are a bit far for this trip, I don't think we will reach it. But we might do it during our Autumn trip Smiling

We are technically Europe in the UK - however there seems to be much more Europe based B&B's on linked in, might be worth a look - Bed and Breakfast Bloggers and Bed and Breakfast owners worldwide are popular groups

I was thinking about trying inns that are "represented" here Smiling Other than that, I think I will rely on Boo!king again, and maybe give AirBnB one more try.

Lucca is also on the list, just didn't want to write everything here Smiling

Do you have parking available nearby? We will be arriving by car, so safe private parking is always a requirement.

We have private parking just close to the house. I't's funny because for Americans parking is a requirement, for Europeans is an option and Italians do not care...they park everywhere smiley

We will be on the road for 4-6 weeks, so that's a full car of stuff. Safe parking is a must in this case Smiling
