Top Timeshare Locations In Europe
Given that the continent attracts a steady stream of visitors from all over the globe, it’s no surprise that Europe is home to some incredibly desirable timeshares. In virtually every country and every major city across the country, there are places that people invest in as homes away from home, giving them the chance to spend regular time at a desired destination, and possibly even use said destination as a base from which to wander around Europe.
To narrow down all of the potential options is quite a task, and naturally there are dozens of excellent ones that won’t appear here. The following, however, should certainly be counted among the most desirable timeshare locations in Europe.
St. Christopher Club - Hamburg, Germany
When you imagine tourism or even long-term vacations in Germany, there are other cities that will come to mind first. Berlin and Munich in particular are far and away the country’s most famous destinations, and naturally draw significant crowds of foreign visitors. Both can be lovely to see and explore, but some ultimately find that Hamburg is the more appealing city. Located on the Elbe River to the north, it’s grown trendy enough in recent years that one of the web’s most visible travel sites even wrote specifically about reasons to visit this city instead of Berlin. These reasons included fresh food, excellent shopping, a beautiful city centre, and vibrant culture, among other things, ultimately painting the picture of a wonderful place for an extended foreign stay.
There are multiple options for timeshares here, not the least of which is the fact that Hamburg has developed a very active home rental market. That’s not a traditional timeshare, naturally, but in a way it’s a means of enjoying the same benefits of a timeshare without the organizational hassle. The Renaissance Hamburg Hotel also comes up as a nice professional venue for this sort of residence, and possibly even use said destination as a base from which to wander around Europe.
Aeolos Beach Club - Corfu, Greece
If your goal in seeking a European timeshare if to find a beautiful place to relax a few weeks out of the year, or your own personal paradise in general, you really can’t do much better than the Greek Isles. Famously beautiful and situated on just about everybody’s travel bucket list, these islands exemplify what’s so special about the Mediterranean region and offer unparalleled views, quiet accommodations, and a sense of peace and contentment that’s impossible to put into words. Corfu is an island that represents all of this, and is the home of the Aeolos Beach Club, which may be the most recommended timeshare option in Greece. It’s a fairly affordable resort despite its hillside location overlooking the sea, its lovely rooms and individual units, and amenities like an in-house restaurant and spa.
47 Park Street - London, United Kingdom
It’s important to remember that there are timeshare options in some of Europe’s most famous capitals as well, including London. Now, Park Street may not itself be one of the city’s more renowned spots, but it’s right in the thick of the action. The street is adjacent to the magnificent Hyde Park, and a walkable distance (albeit a rather long walk) from Buckingham Palace. And if your taste for London comes partially from the innumerable works of fiction focused there, you might also be intrigued to know that Park is one over from Baker Street. This is the famed home of Sherlock Holmes, in everything from the modern series Sherlock, in which it’s presented in a fairly realistic manner, to a Holmes-based online game, which specifically asserts that "the action unfolds" at 221B Baker Street, Holmes’s famous apartment. Not a bad neighborhood for those who want to step into their own fantastical versions of London!
As for the residence itself, 47 Park Street is thought by some to be one of the nicer timeshare options in all of Europe. Also known as the Grand Residences by Marriott in the Mayfair area, 47 Park Street is effectively a beautiful corner hotel full of townhouses and suites, with 24-hour service and timeshare arrangements in place. It’s high-class city living in a city of royals.
Ca De Venezia - Venice, Italy
Like London, Venice is one of Europe’s truly remarkable cities that attracts visitors of all kinds, from all over, all year round. It’s a stunning and unique destination, truly unlike any other place in the world, and packed with enough sights, activities, and pure visual appeal to keep anyone busy for weeks on end. So, naturally, it’s a popular place for extended stays as well! Ca De Venezia is actually a more casual option as compared to some of the home-away-from-home options discussed above, but it’s still a highly recommended, hostel-style timeshare option for those who just want regular access to the city. It’s a homey, apartment-style mini-resort, located east of the city centre and Grand Canal, where you’ll have some peace and quiet without sacrificing quick access to the main attractions.
Pestana Grand Hotel - Madeira, Portugal
Madeira may be the most obscure location listed here, but once you get to know it, it’s hard to resist it as a potentially regular vacation destination. A small island, and actually an autonomous one off the coast of Portugal, it’s a dreamy island unlike most others in Europe. It has its nice beaches and tourist spots, certainly, but also outstanding local food, high mountainous hiking trails, lush greenery, and bustling, authentic little towns. It’s a place you can fall in love with in a day, and then envision enjoying for a great deal longer. Somewhat ironically, the Pestana Grand Hotel is perhaps the most traditional luxury resort of the timeshare options mentioned here, almost clashing with the island’s image as a whole. That’s not a bad thing, however. All it means is that you can stay in luxury and comfort while enjoying everything else the island has to offer.
