Sa Talaia

Ibiza – The Balearic Islands

Azure sea waters with rugged rock formations dominating the landscape in the background. Two small yachts are making their way across the bay.

Despite its party image, Ibiza offers far more variety for those looking to escape to an island of love. With undisturbed villages and sandy shorelines catering for every leisure activity, this destination is an unexpected couple’s paradise. Away from the lively capital, you’ll discover low key resorts where life takes a slower pace – perfect for the pair who pursue pure relaxation. If you wish to seek out Ibiza’s scenic spots then nothing says romance more than the views at Sa Talaia, the island’s highest point. The steady incline on the way up makes it a pleasant hike. When you reach the summit, the two viewpoints give you the option to look north towards San Antonio Bay and the Cape Nonó mountain, or to the bay of Porroig, Cala Jondal and the coast of the island of Formentera.

Hoyo Azul

Dominican Republic – The Caribbean

Quintessential Caribbean scene. Powder-white sands, sunloungers sheltered under a straw carousel and turquoise waters lapping against the shore.

Diverse and rich in culture, the exquisite Dominican Republic is jam-packed with romantic scenes. Boasting stunning scenery from captivating Caribbean coastlines to luscious landscapes, this popular honeymoon destination provides the perfect backdrop for a blissful escape. Staying in one of our Casa de Campo villas, you’ll have the seclusion you desire, as well as finding plenty to see and do. Beach-lovers will find many sun-drenched shores just waiting to be explored. Strolling down the golden sands and paddling in the turquoise waters, you’ll feel like the only two people in the world! Active couples can relish in some friendly competition with a game or two of golf in one of the resort’s many courses. The island’s mix of tranquillity and adventure is the perfect recipe for a romantic retreat and will captivate your senses as well as your heart! Close to Punta Cana sits a stunning lagoon, Hoyo Azul, which literally means Blue Hole! Walk through the nature trail approaching the lagoon and take a dip in the stunning blue waters which reach depths of over 30m. It’s the ideal setting to pop the question – just be careful not to drop the ring in the water!

Epirus – Greece

A stylish infinity pool with views over lush green forests, open sea and a glittering bay area.

A world away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, Epirus is a hidden treasure of mainland Greece. This beautiful region and its charming simplicity is escapism at its best – the ideal choice for couples looking to get away from it all. Embrace the laid-back atmosphere and friendly local hospitality wherever you go.

A visit to the picturesque village of Sivota is the perfect pastime when you’re looking to venture out in search of a romantic backdrop. Experience its local traditions together as you take a stroll through the picture postcard harbour or sunbathe in the quiet landlocked bay. Shop for the best local produce to rustle up a meal for two later back at your villa – olive oil, honey and cheese are a must try.

Although when it comes to top romantic locations, our Epirus villas themselves rival any other beauty spots. Evenings can be spent relaxing in the comfort of hilltop home, as you enjoy the privacy and seclusion made for two. You’ll be wishing every day could be like a Greek getaway!

There’s a world of excitement at your fingertips, so for the thrill-seeking pair a visit to the state’s theme parks is a must. Together you’ll experience exhilaration and that touch of magic that makes Florida famous the world over. Or see the sights like never before from the Orlando Eye – with views spanning across Central Florida. Your partner will not be the only thing to take your breath away! Staying in our Fort Myers villas, discover Lover’s Key State Park nearby – as the name suggests it’s an ideal place for two.
