If you’re in need of a bit of inspiration for a special time away, we’ve put together some personalised trips with a romantic flare.

But why wait for Valentine’s, a leap year, anniversary or honeymoon to getaway? Some of these suggested itineraries have an adventurous twist so can be enjoyed by any one at any time – we believe every holiday is special.

From sorting your activities to checking you in online, we arrange each and every part of your trip, so you really do have the time to fall in love with our destinations.

THE ROMANTIC AZORES

The Portuguese word ‘apaixonar’ means to fall in love, and we challenge anyone not to fall in love with the Azores.

Sete Cidades azores

Verdant landscapes, plunging waterfalls, and serene crater lakes, are just some of the enchantment, but we think the amazing wildlife and relaxed pace of island life, make these islands perfect for a romantic getaway.

Such is the growing appeal of the Azores island of Sao Miguel, it’s slowly-but-surely becoming one of Europe’s most popular honeymoon destinations. With our Azores Honeymoon Escape, you’ll spend your week at one of our favourite hotels in the Azores – Quinta do Mar in the peaceful south coast village of Caloura.

The more luxurious option is our honeymoon retreat where you’ll stay in romantic accommodation in Lisbon and on the islands.

With us, you’ll spend a few days relaxing in Lisbon before flying onto São Miguel staying at the pretty port of Caloura in a boutique-style hotel. You then move onto Terceira to enjoy the festivals (summer only) and finally Faial staying in a converted fortress overlooking the famous marina of Horta.

IN LOVE WITH ADVENTURE

Whether it’s a honeymoon or a normal holiday, we think going away is about doing things you love; if you love adventure, here are some of our favourites:

On our Azorean honeymoon adventure, you’ll spend a week relaxing on São Miguel staying in a hotel within a botanical garden and then a converted 17th century convent.

Flores holidays in the Azores

Then we’ll whisk you off to the romantic island of Flores, the westernmost of the archipelago with its cascading waterfalls and spectacular sunsets. Finally, you end your honeymoon adventure near the cosmopolitan town of Horta with its transatlantic yachts and atmospheric bars.

Make the best memories on our Cape Verde Honeymoon Adventure.

A honeymoon like no other, this romantic getaway combines adventure and some relaxation at the end, whilst staying in boutique-style (some off the beaten track) hotels.

Experience an exhilarating jeep ride on São Vicente during the day and relax with a glass of wine whilst listening to live music in one of Mindelo’s bars.

Get ready for a wedding trip like no other on our São Tomé & Príncipe Honeymoon Adventure.

Honeymoon Holiday in Sao Tome and PrincipeThese secret islands are well and truly off the beaten track and virtually untouched by the rapid changes found elsewhere in the world, and with tourism still in its infancy, you’ll discover remote islands lost in time.

Join us in Cuba on our Honeymoon on a Shoestring, visiting off the beaten track places and finishing with a restful break on an uninhabited island. This holiday isn’t only idyllic for honeymooners, but it’s for everyone wanting to avoid the crowds.

Costa Rica Holidays - Arenal

Costa Rica is ‘Pura Vida’, two words that encapsulate everything and anything that is Costa Rican; an emotion, a way of life and a simple greeting. Experience the feeling with our honeymoon on a budget. On this suggested itinerary, experience cosmopolitan San Jose with its museums and fine dining restaurants, see the most iconic volcano – Arenal Volcano – with its perfect conical shaped top, and marvel at the country’s amazing wildlife.

CITIES TO FALL IN LOVE WITH

Forget Paris, we think Lisbon, Porto and Funchal should have the accolade for cities of love.

Porto City Break

On our Porto City break, we include a full-day Douro River cruise,  while our Lisbon City Break will introduce you to the sights and sounds of Portugal’s engaging capital city.

Meanwhile, on our 7-nights in Funchal suggested itinerary,  Madeira’s capital city has a wonderfully laid-back, relaxing pace of life which you can’t help falling in love with as soon as you arrive.

Each one of our city-break itineraries can easily be tailored to a long weekend away.
