Anime with a European feel

I just realised that the large majority of the anime in my favourites list has a real rustic European feel to them. You know, warm pastel colours (most of the time), Western architecture, not-always-looking-as-if-they-belong-in-Akiba get my drift.

Haibane Renmei
Last Exile
Howl's Moving Castle
Porco Rosso
Kino's Journey

Can anybody recommend any anime in a similar style? I know a fair few of the Ghibli movies (Nausicaa, Laputa, etc) are like that. Is there anything else out there? Doesn't matter how popular/overlooked/unique it is. ^_^

Emma - takes place in Victorian London
Gunslinger Girl - European setting
Red Garden - really unique characters designs that are definitely European looking. Though it apparently takes place in the US... (I just realized this after reading the synopsis right now... did not get that impression at all while watching the show, lol. I guess it's a different US than the one I'm living in)

Monster is set in the Germanies before the fall of the Berlin Wall, though it's not very rustic. Many of the characters are also remarkably ugly by anime standards, which means they look like the ordinary people they're meant to represent.

In Blood+ the characters begin on Okinawa but travel around the world including places in Europe.
