Homes Away From Home: 6 Appealing International Bed-and-Breakfasts

Homes Away From Home: 6 Appealing International Bed-and-Breakfasts

For some vacationers staying in a home makes a trip more relaxing. A home is often quieter compared to a busy resort. And living like a regional strips off that touristy atmosphere, making the experience of a foreign town more romantic. After all, you are bound to get more of a cultural education out of a local home than a chain hotel.

That’s why bed-and-breakfasts are really great. They provide some amenities of a hotel with the comfort of a home. And with unique decoration and furnishings reflective of local style, these six international B and Bs just may inspire your next holiday — or even your next home decorating project.

1. Baixa Hous
Lisbon, Portugal

This enchanting apartment building in Lisbon’s downtown historic district was renovated but retains much of the first structure. Each of the 12 units is named after the backyard in Lisbon that inspired its distinctive design.

Each room includes different features, from soaking baths to outdoor balconies. A breakfast spread is served to each area in the morning.

Bursts of floral wallpaper and modern furniture contrast with this 18th-century room’s beautiful information. Outdoor a quaint streetcar takes guests through beautiful Lisbon.
