If you’ve been a member of our community for awhile, you probably know you can rent anything from a couch for a night, a treehouse for week, or a boat for a month. Well, as of today, you can now rent anything from a couch to a country on Airbnb!
We are excited to expand the breadth of spaces available for rental on Airbnb by partnering with Rent a Village by Xnet, a Liechtenstein-based event production and marketing company, to bring their unique portfolio of event and conference settings to Airbnb.
This partnership brings the Principality of Liechtenstein, 6 Austrian villages, 3 German towns, and 1 Swiss ski-resort village to the Airbnb community.
Last year, Snoop Dogg tried to rent Liechtenstein. Now you can too!
Rent a Village by Xnet takes the idea behind Airbnb to a whole new level. We’re happy to have them as part of our marketplace for unique space, because there isn’t anything quite as unique as renting an entire village or country.
Rent a Village by Xnet partners with these destinations to transform them into highly customized settings for events, corporate retreats, conferences, and more. With Xnet and Airbnb, events take place throughout the idyllic landscape of your host destination, not in some generic hotel. The local people earn a living because each event draws heavily on local vendors and service providers for everything from accommodations and catering, to infrastructure and activity production.
A major component of renting a village or country is booking a large portion of the municipality’s available accommodations, but that is just the beginning. The possibilities for customizing the experience are almost endless — rename city streets and town squares, print your own temporary currencies, carve logos or names into the snow on the mountainside — and that is just the tip of the iceberg. The mayors and marching bands can welcome you with a custom medieval festival and present you the key to the city, or perhaps a wine tasting event at a Prince’s estate followed by a fireworks show is more your style.
Those are just a few examples of what you get when you rent a village or country, we didn’t even touch on the castles, fortresses, sports stadiums, and horseback riding yet! Go check out the listings and see for yourself what it means to rent a country on Airbnb.
