From the rolling hills of Tuscany to the bustling streets of Paris, Europe is a beloved favorite among Inspirato members. Recently, we rounded up a few recaps our members posted in the Inspirato Facebook group of their summer adventures across the pond. Read on to discover what they loved most about their European getaways—and maybe find a little inspiration for your own.
“I just returned from Tuscany—we stayed at Villa Dante. We travel a lot, and this was one of the most wonderful trips ever. Nadia, our Destination Concierge, planned the most wonderful itinerary that gave us a fantastic mix of activities and restaurants.”
“We loved being out of the cities and in the countryside! We had a private chef, Nando, come twice, a pizza party and then a traditional four-course Tuscan dinner—absolutely amazing!”
“The e-bike tour with Roberto was amazing, and the tour of Florence with Silvia was tremendous. The wine tour at Colle Bereto was a true highlight! All of the prearranged drivers for transportation and car rental made traveling a breeze. Our group of eight can’t stop raving about our experience—looking forward to our next adventure!”

“The pool at the club was beyond amazing and private and the apartment was wonderful with amazing views. We cannot wait to return. A true gem if you’re considering visiting France. Don’t miss this one. We did four nights and wish we had done five or six.”

Paris and Bordeaux, France
“Bonjour! I just returned from a girl’s trip to Paris and Bordeaux. We stayed at the Nolinski in Paris, which was a fantastic location. We were there on Bastille Day, and if you ever get a chance, you HAVE to view the fireworks above the Tour d’Eiffel.
“The second part of our trip was at Emilion, the opposite vibe of Paris. Our destination Planner and Concierge, Nikki was outstanding. We had a busy itinerary with a Segway tour through the vineyard at Chateau La Renommeé; a barbecue at Chateau Ambe Tour Pourret; wine tour and tastings at Chateau Troplong Mondot and Chateau Fonplegade; several Michelin-starred restaurant meals; and a walking food tour in the city of Bordeaux.
“Emilion is a beautiful house, and with France’s heat wave, the pool was a great addition. One thing is that the stairs on this property to levels two and three are VERY narrow and winding—maybe a consideration if you’re traveling with someone with mobility limitations, or a fearless child who loves to run up and down steps.
“But we will definitely be back—so many more chateaux to visit.”
