Romantic breaks ❘ Weekends away and short breaks for two

Romantic breaks (3102)

Surprise your partner by whisking them away to a romantic retreat. We have plenty of holiday lets around the world that the owners say have that certain je ne sais quoi. They're perfect for Valentine’s Day, an anniversary or just because you fancy treating them to something special.



Explore your passionate side on a European city break in Paris, Venice or Rome, or lock yourselves away for a few days in a countryside hideaway in the Cotswolds, Lake District or Scottish Highlands. For a sumptuous backdrop for wooing your loved one, book an exotic beach break in Barbados or Thailand.



Also available to book are grand chateaux, quirky houseboats, lavish penthouse suites and fairy-tale towers. For that extra special touch choose a place with a bubbling hot tub, steamy sauna or mesmerising log fire.
