Top 10 Workcation Destinations in Europe

by | Mar 10, 2022 10:21

Workcation: Since the outbreak of the pandemic, an increasing number of people have been working from home. According to statistics, 60 percent of the adult population in the United Kingdom currently works from home, and 26 percent of Brits intend to continue working from home permanently or occasionally in the future. Working from home is beneficial for work-life balance, but it is easy to become bored with your surroundings. So perhaps it’s time to pack up the home office and go on a workcation.

Italy

Is it surprising that this boot-shaped country was named the best place to take a workcation? What isn’t to like about it?

The combination of the weather, rich history, delicious food, and endless sightseeing opportunities makes Italy ideal for exploring while working. So, grab your laptop and board a plane; your next meeting might be accompanied by a glass of white wine and some pasta.

Romania

The prices in Romania are very reasonable. According to Babbel’s research, a beer costs €1.63 and a meal costs €5.08, so this trip will not break the bank. The country has so much to offer, history, bizarre architecture, and imagine sending emails from in front of Dracula’s Castle in Transylvania. Spooky!

North Macedonia

In comparison to the rest of Europe, the cost of living is extremely low here. The monthly cost of living is approximately €604, which is 1.39 times less expensive than the global average. The cuisine reflects the country’s unique blend of Eastern and Western cultures and influences. There are numerous opportunities to travel in your spare time due to the country’s breathtaking natural beauty.

France

Consider this: you wake up for work, grab a croissant and a coffee from the nearest bakery, take a lunchtime stroll around the Champs-Elysées, and spend your weekends admiring the art at the Louvre. Isn’t it lovely? It’s no surprise that France is ranked so high on Babbel’s list.

Spain

Sipping sangria on a beach while planning your schedule appears to be the ideal scenario. Spain is well-known for its beautiful weather, delectable cuisine, breathtaking scenery, and welcoming people. Madrid has 72,657 restaurants, and a meal costs about €11, while a beer costs €3.
