Quintessential hosts are all rather special people, with beautiful and luxurious places to stay, be they luxury bed and breakfast, boutiqe homestays, fabulous restaurants with rooms or the ultimate in exclusive and evocative wedding venues.
Our owners are distinguished not only by the welcome they provide but by their understanding of what constitutes Quintessential Europe. We are constantly looking for unique, interesting, stylish and inspirational properties to invite to join our luxury collection.
If you own a luxury bed and breakfast, a fabulous restaurant or pub with rooms, a boutique homestay or the ultimate in romantic and exclusive wedding venue, we would love to hear from you and to find out a little more about your property and what you offer.
Inclusion of properties on our site is not automatic. We select only the best to be part of the Quintessential collection. While we have some clear criteria for quality and service, the personality and spirit of the properties we feature and, of course, the welcome given to guests are even more important to us.
We have personally inspected every property featured on our website. Our decisions do not refer simply to a checklist; they are very much driven by what we regard as the quintessence of truly fabulous places to stay. Comfort, personality, style, and location are all part of the Quintessential formula.
