8 Vacation Rentals in the World’s Best Wine Regions

Each bottle of wine tells a story with its particular aroma and taste. These characteristics vary throughout wine regions, making each destination worthy of a visit.

Ernest Hemingway once wrote, "Wine is one of the most civilized things in the world and one of the most natural things of the world that has been brought to the greatest perfection, and it offers a greater range for enjoyment and appreciation than, possibly, any other purely sensory thing." Because we agree with, Mr. Hemingway, we’ve rounded up some exquisite rental homes in the most beautiful wine regions around the world.

A Family Home in Stellenbosch, South Africa

This beautifully restored home is tucked away between two rivers about five minutes from central Stellenbosch in South Africa. The stylish rental features three bedrooms, each of which opens to its own private patio—making it the "perfect for a family getaway surrounded by nature," according to the Airbnb listing.

This two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment—available to rent on VRBO—is located in the historic center of Beaune, a cobbled, walled town surrounded by vineyards in the heart of the Burgundy winemaking region in France.

Designed by local architect Steve McGavock, the one-bedroom, one-bath Chambourcin Cottage includes an office nook and a full kitchen with a coffee bar. The rental also features French doors that open to a private, covered patio just meters from the Clifton Bay Estate vineyard.

The Thornsberry House is "nestled between the two oldest wineries in California," according to the Airbnb listing. The two-bedroom rental consists of two separate buildings connected by a large deck with a pool and bocce ball court.

These stylish rental lofts near the center of Florence used to be part of a small factory. The buildings were later turned into artisans’ workshops, until architect Claudio Nardi transformed them into a home for his design studio in 1999. Years later, Nardi repurposed the structures into a "hotel-like cluster of apartments" built around a peaceful garden with a sandstone pool.

This 19th-century apartment is located in Logroño, the capital of the La Rioja province in northern Spain. With its preserved wooden beams and brickwork, the rental unit is located close to a number of emblematic buildings in the city, as well as lively cafés and bars. It’s also easy to explore some of the best wineries in Logroño and the Rioja Alavesa from here.

This bright, private room with its own entrance is situated on a quiet street in Chacras de Coria, a small town in the province of Mendoza, just outside the capital city . The modest Airbnb rental has a bedroom, bathroom, and a lounge area where you can enjoy a world-class glass of wine.

This striking, spacious villa is located near Comporta, Portugal, just minutes from the ocean. Designed by architect Pedro Ferreira Pinto, the home was built in 2010 to blend into the surrounding environment. The rental property—available on Boutique Homes—features a private terrace with a heated pool, garden, and expansive pine decking, as well as an interior courtyard.
