About Secretplaces

This travel guide is dedicated to those that have retained their sense of adventure, their curiosity for local culture, tradition and gastronomy and take pleasure in every manifestation of beauty. Michael and Bea have put together a collection of unique places to stay in Europe and beyond, independent of price
The word that would best define our personally selected accommodations is "authentic." They are small, often independent, establishments that offer personalized service and a unique atmosphere. The intimacy of these unique places to stay allows for personalized attention to detail and a tailored experience for each guest.
Whether it is that romantic guest house committed to fine local cuisine, a small charming countryside hotel placed within breathtaking landscapes, an elegant boutique hotel or luxury hotel in the bustling city centre or a holiday home nestled above the ocean, they are all places that give you that singular feeling of happiness and wellbeing.
