We’ve partnered with other luxury vacation home providers in Europe to bring you access to even more homes through our affiliate portfolio.
With the help of Brittany, our experienced Destination Manager, we’ve put together a list of five of our investors’ favorite reciprocal residences in Europe — highlighting the destinations, luxe amenities, and unique features that make each one extra special.
Romantic Paris is all about rich history, deliciously rich food, and exquisite culture. From the iconic, cloud-piercing Eiffel Tower and Gothic Notre-Dame cathedral to the wide boulevards, quaint cobblestone side streets, and classic 19th century buildings, the charm of the city draws you in as soon as you arrive. And our chic Parisian partner residence puts you in the heart of it all.
Superbly located next to the glamorous avenue des Champs-Élysées and a short three-minute walk from the Franklin D. Roosevelt Metro Station, this classic Parisian vacation apartment features a spacious floorplan, two bedrooms with private bathrooms, air-conditioning, high ceilings, and fantastic natural light. Our investors particularly love the mix of elegant French details and modern amenities, as well as the gourmet kitchen and convenience to some of the best cultural, dining, and shopping hot spots in the city.
While here, you can spend cozy days wrapped in the comfort of the home. Enjoy the wonders of the City of Lights (and love) by strolling the boulevards along the River Seine. Take in long, wine-paired lunches or late dinners at any of the breathtaking sidewalk cafes or Michelin-starred restaurants that Paris is known for. Explore the city’s local shops and high-end designer boutiques. Or tour the galleries of some of the world’s top museums such as the Musée d’Orsay, the Louvre, and the Museum of Modern Art.
However, you choose to spend your vacation, this elegant French-chic apartment is an idyllic home-away-from home for any Parisian getaway.
Something extra: Many of our investors love to pair their stay in Paris with a few extra vacation days in London at the beautiful Equity Estates home there.
Barcelona has long earned its status as a cultural hub, a culinary heaven, and one of the finest beach cities in Europe. Located on the beautiful northeastern shores of the Iberian Peninsula and best known for its storied architecture, magnificent historical landmarks, art museums, and world-class cuisine, it’s a cosmopolitan seaside destination with friendly, walkable neighborhoods, near-endless culture, and much to see and do.
Our chic Barcelona partner residence is a centrally located uptown vacation apartment on the third floor of a grand, historic apartment block, making it easy for guests to get out and explore the city, while offering all the luxuries and comfort of home.
At over 2,200-square-feet, the residence features two en-suite double bedrooms, a separate children’s room, a large living room with city views, a modern gourmet kitchen, and more. Comfortable and cozy, with European details and elegant touches throughout, the apartment is also fully air-conditioned and centrally heated, making it an ideal year-round vacation home in whichever season you choose to visit.
While in Barcelona, be sure to visit the stunning Basilica of the Sagrada Familia, a towering church constructed in the late 1800s and designed by famed artist/architect Antoni Gaudi. And enjoy the gorgeous Spanish Gothic architecture of the Barcelona Cathedral; famed monuments such as Gaudi’s Art Nouveau Casa Batlló; and fabled artwork at the Picasso Museum or the Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art. But don’t overlook the city’s simple pleasures — cobbled city streets, stretches of golden sand along clear, blue sea, and cozy eateries serving everything from traditional tapas and paella to creative Michelin-starred dishes.
From historical sites to Barcelona’s fabulous food and drink, and a beautiful urban apartment to call home while you’re here, you’ll love vacationing in this vibrant coastal city.
Something extra: Our investors love getting out and exploring the city on foot, and no trip to Barcelona is complete without sipping sangria along Las Ramblas while marveling at street performers or wandering from café to café trying every tapa in the city.
Vienna is a stunning city, a place where traditional European beauty, classical art and architecture, and modern culture meet. Once home to Mozart, Beethoven, Sigmund Freud, and the Habsburg dynasty, today’s Vienna wows visitors with grand imperial palaces, stunning parks and gardens, and a thriving café culture. It’s a city of music and museums, greenspace and cozy neighborhoods, modern attractions and a thriving food scene.
The elegant and spacious Vienna apartment, situated on the first floor of a historic mansion block, puts you close to the action, right in the heart of the city. Nestled on a quiet street near Mariahilfer Strasse — Vienna’s famous mile-long, car-free shopping street — the home features two double en-suite bedrooms, an impressive living room with historical wooden detailing, large windows, a gourmet kitchen, and a sophisticated dining room — all with high ceilings, antique plaster moldings, and other fine details. It’s an amazing residence that combines convenience and privacy within a charming neighborhood that’s perfect for walking.
If you can, explore Vienna on foot, taking in the stunning architecture and immersing yourself in the rich culture of this beautiful city. Visit the magnificent Schönbrunn Palace while you’re here for a glimpse of what noble life would have been like in the 18th century. Stroll through the rose-filled, French Baroque-style Volksgarten. Ride Vienna’s famed Giant Ferris Wheel for unforgettable views. And enjoy an authentic Viennese coffeehouse experience at any of the cozy cafes around the city.
Romantic, gorgeous and serene, Vienna is one vacation destination you will want to visit again and again.
Something extra: Or Equity Estate investors love to visit the famous Vienna Opera House or see the Lipizzaners (the renowned dancing white horses of Vienna) at the Spanish Riding School when they’re here.
The magical city of Venice is the perfect place to indulge your senses, marvel at ancient art and architecture, and fall in love. Made up of over 100 small islands connected by a series of canals and bridges, with ornate stone palaces, historic squares, outdoor markets, and neighborhoods filled with narrow alleyways, it’s a stunning, one-of-a-kind destination, unlike anyplace else in the world.
Here, you can walk through narrow streets and over small bridges to visit local shops selling everything from designer clothes and Italian leather to Venetian masks and Murano glass; enjoy a traditional Italian lunch at one of the canal-side restaurants overlooking the famed Rialto Bridge; visit the city’s restored Gothic-style buildings and renowned art museums that seem to rise out of the water; and return home by gondola along small canals, silent but for the gentle sounds of the gondolier’s rèmo.
Our fantastic Venice partner residence is a charming vacation apartment, located on the “piano nobile” (or main floor) of an exceptional palazzo in the Dorsoduro district. Just a short walk from the Grand Canal, it’s convenient to the most alluring sights of the city, yet provides a comforting refuge away from the busy tourist trail. Decorated in true Venetian style, with elegant touches throughout, the home features a spacious floorplan and two master suites — making it an ideal getaway for couples or families. And, with a separate media room, study with additional bedding options, modern gourmet kitchen, and large living and dining area, it’s the perfect place to relax after a long day of sightseeing.
There are few experiences that compare with a vacation in Venice. Romantic, unique, and brimming with history, the memories you make in this exceptional city will stay with you for years to come.
Something extra: Our investors often love to pair their Venice vacations with time in Florence, enjoying a stay at the beautiful Equity Estates residence there.
