We travel a great deal around Europe and encounter many different styles of accommodation. We are always being asked to make recommendations, so here are a few from our travels outside France. Each year we prepare a "'Top of the List' List" of those restaurants and hotels we have visited. If you find yourselves in any of these places, please try our selection, and let us know what you think.
