What is an UnTour?

Live Like a Local

Travel Slower

The UnTours Experience

Unpack. Settle in. Explore the winding cobblestone streets of your town or city. Sit in a cozy pub, planning your next museum visit. Enjoy evenings sipping wine on your alpine balcony or swimming in a pool beside Tuscan vineyards. Relax, knowing that our local host is only a phone call away.

The Apartment Experience

You can settle into a real city neighborhood or charming country village and experience local life. An apartment gives you extra lounging space, local character, and a more authentic sense of place. Use your kitchen to prepare meals and save money. Apartments can be an especially good value for families or couples traveling together. (Kids stay free in many cases.)

Why UnTours?

Since 1975, we have been finding the best apartments in Europe: scoping out the most appealing locations in a region or city, signing accommodations that meet our rigorous standards, and cultivating relationships with local hosts. Whether a farmhouse in Provence or a garden apartment in Paris, we have selected home bases that give you unparalleled access to a city or region. We’ve even been featured by the LA Times, the Chicago Tribune, Arthur Frommer, and Oprah.
