Vacation Rental Agencies in Europe
The firms below represent only a handful of the companies that offer holiday
rentals in Europe. You'll find many more by using search engines such as Google,
Yahoo, or MSN Search, and by visiting official Web sites of tourist offices in
the cities and regions that interest you.
This European booking site has a good selection of properties in all price
categories, especially in Italy. Discount prices
are negotiated with local property owners, and--unlike many agencies and
landlords--Venere accepts payment by credit card.
The European Centre for Eco Agro Tourism publishes directories of "green" farm
vacations in the Netherlands and 21 other European countries. Online listings
will be available soon.
The Manor Houses of Portugal
Stay at a high-quality B&B in town, a quinta in the
countryside, or one of 200+ cottages and villas in Northern
Portugal and the Algarve.

tourist car lease can
be cheaper than renting for visits of 21+ days. Minimum driver age is
18, there' s no upper age limit, and rates include insurance.
