Anyone who books such a certified home is guaranteed a high-quality stay. These award-winning Belvilla properties are each among the 20 percent of accommodations with the highest occupancy rate in their own region. Besides that, they did not receive a single complaint in 2022 and they were recognized by their guests with an average review score of at least 8 out of 10.
This certificate recognizes the work conducted by homeowners who have mastered the art of hospitality down to the last detail. “Most popular Belvilla” homes awarded in 2022 are tagged on the Belvilla website so that they can be easily visible to guests looking for a great experience.
In total, Belvilla awarded 1,703 vacation homes in 17 different countries in Europe, which is about 200 more than the previous year.
Edward Nieland, Director Owner Success Team of Belvilla by OYO, comments: “The decision on the award is up to the guests, which makes the award particularly valuable for us. With the award we would like to thank the homeowners for their commitment. The large number and the increase compared to the previous year of awarded houses shows that our landlords succeed in offering quality to the holidaymakers.”
