If you’re looking to tap into the local pulse on your next trip to Europe, one of the best ways to do it is by choosing your lodging wisely. The difference between staying in a heavily starred “guidebook hotel” and staying in an agritourism farm at the edge of an ocean cliff on an unmarked road can be dramatic. At the former, you may get great room service; at the latter, you eat with the proprietors at the family table.
The challenge is, of course, to find those special places to stay. The obvious choices show up on the booking engines and in the guidebooks, but how do you find anything else, and in particular the right place for you? We know the off beaten paths in Europe for wellness and adventure!
