An ongoing trend among marketers and the tourism biz is to rent all sorts of stuff, including small European countries. Apparently, Airbnb has no doubts that someone, somewhere, might be willing to plop down a mound of cash for a short stay at Liechtenstein, one of the those miniscule mini-states that dot Europe.
Here’s a good chunk of explanatory text from the Airbnb blog:
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.
