Romance your way with our fab Valentine breaks

All couples are unique, so your Valentine celebration should be too. And whether you yearn for the bright lights of a city, a foodie or wine-lover’s break, a beach retreat, or just something a little offbeat, we’ve found the right destinations for your romantic escape—and ones with stunning rentals to boot.

  1. A darling break in the Dordogne (France)

    A picture-postcard medieval town in the Périgord Noir, Sarlat is perfect for leisurely strolls à deux. A maze of cobbled streets takes you to the cathedral with its mix of Roman, Gothic, and other styles, but there are plenty more architectural treasures to soak in, as well as an excellent market, tempting café terraces, and gastronomic restaurants galore. Indeed, this cosy apartment sits just above one of the most famous eateries, Les Jardins d’Harmonie. Windows look onto the cathedral, while inside it’s all wooden floors, exposed stone walls, and original fireplaces—along with a sleek modern bathroom and state-of-the-art gadgetry.

  2. Amorous in Amsterdam (Netherlands)

    Riding bicycles made for two, cruising along the canals, and wandering inside world-class art and history museums—these are just some of the highlights of a couple’s break in the Dutch capital. And where better to make your nest than on the water aboard a century-old houseboat surrounded by gorgeous floating gardens? Sit out together on the sunny deck with a glass of local beer or Jenever and you’ll feel totally apart from the world—all while within walking distance of the Waterlooplein flea market, the botanical gardens, and other city-centre sights.

  3. Mallorca made for two (Spain)

    For the ultimate in romantic beach breaks, Cala Llamp near Port Andratx on the west coast of this beautiful Balearic island hits the spot, with pine-clad slopes dropping down to a heavenly bay. A large panoramic window in the bedroom of this typically Mediterranean apartment ensures you awake to glorious sea views—views you can also enjoy while taking a dip in the infinity pool. And don’t miss the spectacular sunsets from the comfort of a sun-lounger, a glass of local wine in hand. Inside, think beamed ceilings, flagstone floors, whitewashed walls, and a fireplace to cuddle up in front of, whatever the weather.

  4. True togetherness in Tuscany (Italy)

    For those who want to escape the crowds of Florence and Siena but be close enough to sightsee, this ancient farm in the heart of the Chianti Classico Senese is the perfect couple’s retreat. Think rustic architecture and simple, inviting interiors featuring local antiques. Then there’s the sparkling outdoor pool with loungers from which to gaze over olive groves, hills, and valleys. It’s perfectly placed for walks and visits to local vineyards, while Castellina in Chianti is a 10-minute walk away—just the ticket for romantic meals in authentic local restaurants, followed by a stroll through the quaint streets, gelato in hand.
