The romance of owning a home in Europe is undeniable. The thoughts of waking up in the morning and stepping out your door to the scents of baking pastries and the sounds of bicycle bells as your European neighbors fly past on their way to cafés or art studios…
Of course, not all of European living is so postcard-perfect, but it’s not hard to see why a lot of us think it is.
After all, Europe has some of the most iconic geography and cultures in the world.
From the white islands of Greece dotting the clear blue Mediterranean Sea…to the rolling hills of Southern Spain…to the simple grandeur of the French countryside. It’s more than possible to find a slice of European life that’s at least postcard-adjacent.
Not only that, but there are some truly incredible deals to be found on properties you won’t see in any other parts of the world.
Check out what my research team found in three of Europe’s most romantic locations.
Elounda, Crete, Greece
