Welcome to Holidays to Europe


About Carolyn of Holidays to EuropeHi, my name is Carolyn and I am passionate about travelling in Europe and would love to share my experiences and love of European travel with you. On the website you can read my articles about travel destinations in the UK and Europe and my blog is regularly updated with travel tips to make planning your holiday easy.

If you need some ideas on where to stay, what to see and how to get around, you've come to the right place! Holidays to Europe also serves as a directory for a huge range of (mainly) Australian-owned accommodation including apartments, villas and cottages as well as camping holidays, B&Bs and hotels.

The directory also lists a large range of small group tours in Europe and the UK (including women-only, White Christmas and food and wine tours), river and ocean cruising options, rail passes and car hire. All services can be booked directly with the owner/operator whose details you'll find on the website.

Happy browsing .... and happy travels!
