When people think of a holiday as a romantic gift, three schools of thought usually prevail. Those who can think of nothing nicer than a sun soaked beach break, those who love the fast pace of a romantic city break and those who would prefer to get cosy in front of a roaring log fire after a strenuous day in the great outdoors. Which ever option appeals to you, if you take your loved one on a romantic holiday, they will love you for ever and ever!
If you are hoping to take a romantic weekend break, it is worth bearing in mind that with such little time to enjoy, don't waste time on the fairly un-romantic activity of travelling to your destination! Keep travelling time to a minimum and don't waste a moment of your time together. Upon your arrival in your romantic cottage, there is no need to rush out and fill your weekend with activities. Instead, simply make a reservation in a local restaurant or just spend some time in your private pool, sauna or hot tub is a far more romantic idea.
