Where Quintessential Bed and Breakfast has been dedicated to bringing you the ultimate guide to the most luxurious, stylish and romantic private home bed and breakfast homes in the UK, Quintessential Europe has spread its wings to encompass not only private home bed and breakfasts but other fabulous places to stay - restaurants and pubs with rooms, boutique homestays and some extraordinarily beautiful wedding venues. Each of our Members offers a truly fabulous place to stay, irrespective of style, type or geography.

Quintessential Europe is also able to offer you exclusive access to some unique, private homes that have opened their doors to those discerning guests seeking the ultimate in luxury bed and breakfast, the most evocative, exclusive wedding venue or that special place to stay that may have been previously unimaginable, let alone attainable.

We have handpicked a collection of truly luxurious properties – breathtaking farmhouses in spectacular countryside, gorgeous country houses in serene surroundings, stylish and contemporary rural retreats set in private woodlands, stunning coastal properties, quintessential English cottages, chic, boutique homes in glorious countryside – where you will arrive as a guest and leave, relaxed and replenished, ready to return again and again.

Like its predecessor, Quintessential Europe has created a space where our fabulous places to stay can stand out from the crowd.  We will not compromise on quality, comfort and personality.  You will find not only the finest luxury bed and breakfast homes, boutique homestays, evocative wedding venues and sumptuous restaurants with rooms but also the wonderful places to explore from their doorsteps. The website aims to provide a very 21st Century experience. We want to offer our discerning guests the opportunity to discover some very special, sometimes exclusive, certainly unique, and always luxurious places to stay. We also want to inform our guests about what they can do in each of the beautiful parts of Europe where we have been fortunate enough to discover another gem for Quintessential Europe.
