The Real Housewives love a lavish vacation and they don’t always head to sun and sand when it’s time to blow off some steam together (or yell in each others’ faces). They often head just across the pond to Europe. And just like their Caribbean resort picks, these European hotels are easily bookable by us regular people. Check out six hotels the housewives have graced their presence with in Europe.
The Real Housewives of New York, arguable the best Real Housewives franchise, traveled to London in season 5. We all know Sonja T. Morgan loves a bidet, but she loved the one at The May Fair in London so much that she put her face in it. What a kooky bird!
In season 11 of The Real Housewives of Orange County, Shannon, who always loves a theme, really embraces the spirit of their trip to Dublin. She takes the leprechaun idea to heart when she wears a terrible green sequined shirt and says “top of the morning!” at every possible chance. This trip also gave us one of the weirdest, craziest fights on a bus ever.
In The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ season 8, the gang heads to this seriously cool hotel in Berlin with Erika for an Erika Jayne performance, I think? The details of this trip escape me because all I was thinking the whole time was how sweaty Erika must’ve been in her red latex top – yeesh.
Here we have another example of a group of housewives going absolutely bonkers on each other in a beautiful destination. The Real Housewives of New Jersey traveled to Milan in season 8 so Marge (my fave new addition) can visit a shoe manufacturer. At dinner one night, Siggy goes off the rails at my dear Marge and causes the group to get kicked out of the restaurant!
The Real Housewives of Potomac is a very underrated franchise! And in season 3, they went to Cannes for Monique’s birthday. After visiting an essential oil company (jealous!), they stopped Grasse, the perfume capital of the world (jealous again!). Then, in the most random part of the trip, the ladies celebrate Monique’s birthday with a burlesque-themed costume party (???). But really, who cares about that – this hotel looks amazing!
Second to Hotel Martinez Cannes that RHOP visited, Hotel Arts Barcelona, visited by The Real Housewives of Atlanta in season 10 is one of the coolest hotels I’ve seen any housewives visit. This wasn’t the initial plan though, as Cynthia rented a vacation home that wasn’t up to the ladies’ impossibly high standards (NeNe and Kandi, I’m looking at you). This hotel is a dream: it’s got city view, water views, modern design, outdoor dining – take me there now!
