Hi, i am planning a 2 weeks trip to Europe. Please suggest me good places to visit there. Now i know i cant travel whole of the Europe in 2 weeks, i mean that would be silly. So please suggest 4-5 places where i can go. I am looking for places away from the city with natural beauty & good accommodation. Thank You.

What are you interested in. I would just as soon be in the middle of no where on a mountain somewhere. But many would not like that. :)

I'm pretty biased towards the Scottish Highlands. Beautiful, very hikeable mountains, trips to see seals and dolphins, ancient ruins, good food (especially seafood and game). On the down side it's tricky by public transport and the weather is really unpredictable.

But there are a lot of amazing places in Europe, and it depends on your specific interests and how much you care about good weather, whether you can hire a car or not, whether you like coasts or mountains (Scotland has both, just saying...) and what food you like. I love inland southern Spain - good public transport to the cities, nice mountains, amazing architecture and great red wine. The Antalya area of Turkey - mountains, the mediterranean, amazing Greco-Roman remains, but a bit tricky without a car. The Swiss Alps, expensive but stunningly beautiful. Norway - another beautiful but expensive country. Iceland - volcanos, whales, and hot springs, but very expensive. Baltic Coast, Poland - Gdansk is gorgeous, the country is really affordable, and it's a stunning coastline.

Slovenia is a hidden gem. There are parts of France where - even in the season - you can spend time in very quiet countryside. Think Creuse, for example. Agree with Sarahelaine's suggestions too, especially inland Spain and Iceland. If going to Iceland, you may consider going to Westfjords. I think certain parts of Germany are underrated as well, such as Fichtelgebirge (Fichtel hills range).

Another post you've started says you're based in London - have you been round Britain yet? South Downs, Norfolk Broads, Exmoor, Dartmoor, Peak District, Yorkshire Moors, Scottish Highlands, Snowdonia?

It rather depends on your budget and interests/tastes.
I'll guess you're not looking for 2 weeks on some beaches or desperate for Ibiza/Faliraki style nightlife, but that doesn't narrow the options down much.
If you want 2 weeks to just hang around with the money people then Monaco has that, but it also has ridiculous prices...
In 2 weeks you could easily stay in just one country and still leave having run out of time to see all the attractions. I'd suggest you pick a country that you want to visit (just Italy or Germany or...) and see that country a bit better, rather than spend too much valuable time on longer journeys. If you need suggestions for what to see in one country then please ask.

The Scottish Highlands and the English Lake District are hard to beat. The only place in Europe that I think manages it is Norway - the fjords and the Lofoten Islands - but it's fiercely expensive.

Southeastern France is fabulous. You could base in Collioure and have shore and mountains, lots of lovely walks and good public transportation. It's beautiful no matter where you go. If you are desperate for a city, there are Perpignan and Narbonne but we love the smaller towns and countryside. There is also a fabulous beach (actually lots of them). It's a great place to spend some time.

The Chianti area of Italy is also lovely. Lots of little towns, wonderful walks in the countryside and if you're interested wine tasting. We usually stay near San Polo but it's tiny. You might like someplace a little larger with good bus service like Greve in Chianti or good train service like Siena. Siena is too large for me but it's still pretty small as cities go.

Whatever you choose, have a great trip.
