Airbnb – and travel in general – has been pretty much off limits for the last year, with coronavirus restrictions meaning we’re all stuck indoors.

That can’t stop us dreaming, though, and we’ve been doing plenty of that.

The home rental platform has released their most liked homes on Instagram over 2020. Let’s just say, they’re the stuff our most pleasant dreams are made of.

A spokesperson from Airbnb said: ‘ Thousands of would-be travellers have wistfully gazed at, liked and commented on inspiring travel images on Airbnb’s Instagram account and we are excited to share their top ten from the past year.’

In among that top ten we have cosy cabins nestled in snow and beachfront retreats that promise stunning sunsets and romantic evenings.

Let’s take a look at the hot list, and live vicariously through them, shall we?

1. Stone Cottage (Saint Victor la Coste, France)

The most liked photo on Airbnb’s Instagram profile in 2020 captures the enduring allure of the South of France. Taken by @conte_yoon, it has amassed over 76,000 likes.

The regency-style interiors will quell your thirst for Bridgerton-style living.

2. The Best View of Quintay (Casablanca, Chile)

The view from this coastal cabin in the Valparaiso region of Chile is truly breathtaking. Snapped by  @rafael_medeiros, it has clocked up over 67,000 likes and counting.

The home is literally nestled on a cliff, so it might not be one for the faint-hearted.

3. Lakeview Lodge (San Marcos La Laguna, Guatemala)

With a stunning panorama of Lake Atitlan, this glass-fronted villa perched high upon the hills of peaceful Pasajcap was the perfect setting for @megaann.p’s shot.

How’s that for a view when you wake up?

4. Tanglebloom Cabin (Brookline, VT, United States)

Tucked away in a forested grove on a flower farm, this open air ‘glamping’ cabin has been perfectly captured by its hosts @tanglebloom_cabin.

This is the place you want to go to be truly at one with nature.

5de. Casa Mama (Pioneertown, CA, United States)

Captured by @workingholidaystudio, this image of a pueblo-style home in the Californian desert gives us just enough of a glimpse to trigger maximum wanderlust.

Watch the wildlife from the porch, with rabbits – and even coyotes – known to run around outside.

6. 19th Century Schoolhouse (Kingston, NY, United States)

The only shot that’s all about interiors in our top 10 is of a gorgeous converted old schoolhouse in upstate New York.

It even has its own pool.

7. Dreamy A-Frame (Pond Eddy, NY, United States)

Seventh on the list, another image from upstate New York has made the grade. Darby House is a beautiful A-frame home tucked away in the woods alongside the Delaware River.

It appears much more remote than it is, just a couple of hours’ drive from New York City.

8. Window to the Duomo (Florence, Italy)

The iconic Florence Cathedral or ‘Duomo’ takes center stage in this incredible shot captured by @girlgoneabroad inside an exceptionally well located artist studio on Airbnb.

It almost looks like a painting behind the window, but it’s definitely real.

9. Idyll Haus (Idyllwild-Pine Cove, CA, United States)

Ninth on the list, this wintry shot whisks us away from historic Florence to the San Jacinto Mountains in Riverside County.

Guests can light the fire, get in a warm bath, and watch the snow fall from the cosy chalet.

10. Floating House (Joanópolis, Brazil)

Last but not least, this aerial shot of a prototype off-the-grid house deservedly garnered lots of attention on our Instagram profile in 2020.

The picture, taken by @franparente, shows of the Altar in all its glory, floating in a lake the foot of the Mantiqueira Mountain.
