The words affordable and probate island don’t seem to belong in the same sentence, but it turns out that there are a few probate island listings on Airbnb that cost as much as any other good accommodation, meaning $80-$300 per night. Here are a few such spots around the world you can escape to if you really want to escape the crowds.
Cavallino, Italy — Venice Lagoon
This rural island is situated just outside Venice and can accommodate up to 16 guests in its seven bedrooms. The villas are surrounded by natural beauty, offering a serene experience—the absolute opposite of the crowds you’ll find in the center of Venice.
