How do I make a booking with HOLIDAYARCHITECTURE?

What’s most important: HOLIDAYARCHITECTURE is neither a booking platform nor a travel agency. You always book directly with the host!

HOLIDAYARCHITECTURE brings owners of holiday homes and guests together. Our website functions as a gallery where we showcase beautiful, exciting and exemplary accommodations for you. 

In the respective entries of the holiday residences, you will find a description of the house and a link to the respective website. This link will provide you with further information about the holiday home, for example about prices and booking. Some houses also have a direct link to their booking page. If the accommodation does not have a website, you will find an enquiry form, which you can use to contact the host directly.

How do I find my dream accommodation?

Our portal presents more than 500 holiday homes. With the help of the map and the search function, you can search specifically for the accommodation that is of interest to you. You will find the map and the search function (symbol: magnifying glass) in the menu at the top of our web pages.

Search by map:

Navigate to the region of your choice on the map. By clicking on the house symbol, the suitable object will be displayed. The link “Go to object” will take you directly to the entry of the accommodation.

Search by search function:

Using our search function, you can search for keywords and availabilities, individually or combined. You can further narrow down the search results by entering a date (“Availabilities” button) or by selecting personal criteria (“Filter” button).

How do I find accommodation that is available at a particular time?

You can use the availability query to search for accommodation that is available for a certain period. All holiday homes for which we receive occupancy data are taken into account here.

You will find the availability query via the search function (symbol: magnifying glass in the right corner of the menu bar). Here you can enter the period for which you are looking for accommodation. If you click on “flexible”, the search period will be extended by a few days so that not only the selected arrival and departure days are considered.

Accommodations for which we do not know availability data for the requested period are marked with the note “on request”. In addition to the period, you can filter by other criteria, such as the number of people and the country.

In addition to the period, you can filter by further criteria, e.g., number of guests and country.

Where can I find prices for the accommodation?

You will not find any price information on HOLIDAYARCHITECTURE. You can obtain this information on the website of the accommodation (the link is provided in the entry of the holiday home) or on request from the host (contact form in the entry), if the holiday home does not have its own website.

How can I create a list of my favourite houses?

If you click on “Add Bookmark” (flag symbol) in the left menu column of a holiday home’s entry, this holiday home will be added to your list of favourites. You can access the list via the menu bar at the top (flag symbol).

Note: Bookmarked favourites are saved locally as a “cookie” in your browser. They are only available in the respective browser. The favourites function is only intended for short-term bookmarking. If the local data of your browser is deleted, the bookmarked favourites are also lost.

Where can I buy HOLIDAYARCHITECTURE books?

You can buy our books via our online shop. The books are also available through bookshops (brick-and-mortar or online) and Amazon.

Can I buy vouchers?

We do not offer any vouchers for our platform, but many of the accommodations we present do. Please contact the respective holiday residence directly. 

Another gift idea are our award-winning books.

Via our full text search you will not only find accommodations, but also all editorial articles from our magazine.
