Whether you're looking for a pied-a-terre in the middle of an iconic city or a quaint cabin offering serenity, you know Airbnb is the ideal for finding a place to live like a local. But the site offers so much more than studios and family homes. Airbnb is the perfect place to search for destination wedding venues. Airbnb has something you will love, from ski chalets in Colorado to breathtaking castles in France. Keep the party going all week by renting a villa as your wedding venue. Airbnbs feel more special, and there are many unique options, which make it easy to have a wedding that none of your friends have seen before. These villa wedding venues are guaranteed to leave you smitten.

Villa de Montmorency in Paris

The villa boasts an exceptional seclusion, retreat, and tranquility level, and that is hard to find in Paris. Villa Montmorency can comfortably entertain 18 guests. This wonderful villa is perfect for couples who want to high-end luxury in the heart of Paris and desire privacy for their wedding guests. You can explore the City of Lights by day and retreat to your ultra-luxe home at night.

Villa Lucca in Tuscany

Villa Lucca lies within a secluded 100-acre estate; you will find Italian country living at its finest. Nature is your constant companion; you'll stroll tree-lined paths through aromatic olive groves and hidden woodlands crisscrossed by charming streams. And at the terraced-end of the garden, you will find a view of the swimming pool and adjoining alfresco kitchen. The villa stretches from the valley to the foothills. It's an utterly essential place to unwind and have your wedding.

Jessie Tip:

Not all villas will allow onsite weddings, so make sure you communicate your needs and desires before you put money down!

Butley Priory in Suffolk

This spotless historic jewel offers the best of both worlds. It is a study in contrast, historic and modern. The priory can sleep up to 15 guests, and the owners who serve as wedding planners. Underneath the Great Hall's arched ceilings or strolling the immaculate grounds, you'll feel as if you stepped into "Downton Abbey." You can host weddings up to 100 guests with 18 guests able to stay at the priory. It is the perfect backdrop for a lovely English ceremony.

Villa Avalon in Costa Rica

Head to Costa Rica and live in the lap luxury during your destination wedding trip! Villa Avalon offers stunning ocean views and spectacular white sandy beaches that are mere steps from the villa's entrance. Seven bedrooms make it possible to house 16 guests. The master bedroom is a perfect sanctuary for the happy couple because it occupies the gorgeous hacienda's entire third floor.

Jessie's Tip:

Some villas offer equipment like tables, chairs, and decorations that you can use for your reception. Be sure to check with the owner before you contact rental companies in your destination.

Chartreuse de St Emilion in Bordeaux

This charming chateau offers four en-suite bedrooms. Perfect for intimate destination weddings. You will encounter castle life in one of the most extravagant properties of Saint Emilion. Chartreuse lies amid the vines of the world-famous St. Emilion area of Bordeaux. Picturesque towns, celebrated vineyards, fabulous restaurants, and elegant riverside landscape await you in Bordeaux.

Indio Hills Desert Escape in California

Indio Hills lies just outside of Joshua Tree National Park; it is the perfect hidden gem for an intimate boho destination wedding. The villa is roomy and has seven bedrooms. The saltwater infinity pool is so fabulous that you will want to extend your trip to lay poolside. Indio Hills is tucked away on five acres offering you seclusion and incredible views.

Jessie's Tip:

If your villa doesn't offer the equipment you can use for the reception, you will need to determine how far you are from services such as rentals, caterers, florists, and other vendors.

Pyrgos Estate in Santorini

Pyrgos Estate is a six-bedroom extravagant mansion that flows of over three floors. It provides endless breathtaking vistas of the Aegean Sea and Pyrgos Kallistis castle. Secrecy and solitude remain the estate's defining element, where fluidity and customization harmonizes a practical framework for attacking life. It is ideal for destination weddings due to its unprecedented spatial and absolute private location.

Brisas Del Mar in Los Cabos

Brisas del Mar is a charming beachfront oasis. It offers heated pools and magnificent outdoor terraces. From the wine cellar to the piano bar, the owners overlooked no detail. Outdoors provides a cascading, multi-level deck with private putting green, fire and water points, and couches to admire unbelievable ocean views.

Jessie's Tip:

Some villas have noise restrictions in regards to music. Be sure to check with the owner or rental company before hiring a band or a DJ for your wedding reception.

Dairsie Castle in Scotland

Do you want to feel like a princess on your wedding day? Dairsie Castle might be just what you are looking for in a wedding venue. Step back into the 12th century and live as the royals do. In 1992, the owners renovated the castle, so you can rest assured that it combines history and modern amenities. It lies on six acres of immaculate grounds. Unlike many of Airbnb's, Dairsie is large enough to entertain 60 guests. So it would be perfect for a massive wedding party.

Rock Peak Estate in Colorado

Welcome to a private luxury escape in Vail. This chalet has 8-bedrooms and 11,500 square feet. If you love winter sports, you will adore the ski-in, ski-out beauty, just steps from the Bear Tree ski run. It is a perfect private escape for large groups and weddings; Rock Peak Estate perches high on Vail Mountain. The outstanding views frame the surrounding Rocky Mountains.

Airbnbs are perfect for destination weddings. You get the whole place to yourself and don't have to wait in buffet lines or have strangers walking through your ceremony. These lovely rentals are just the tip of the iceberg. I could write a hundred blogs highlighting all the incredible retreats that are waiting for you to come to enjoy them.
