When you’ve booked a romantic holiday for just the two of you, it has to be stunning. There needs to be plenty to do, plenty to see, and lots of romance. The perfect break away may be challenging to find. But there is one place not too far away that has all the ingredients you need for a fabulous romantic holiday. Greece is warm, sunny, beautiful, and relaxing. What more could you want? There are certainly many different areas of Greece to visit when you’re in a romantic mood.
Just a short hydrofoil ride from Piraeus is the perfect little town of Spetses. It’s very popular with those who love sailing or yachting and is mostly quite affluent. Nowhere else on the island has any inhabitants. This means the town is the centre of everything while you are here. The Neoclassical and Venetian styles are evident in the mansions here. In fact, this area is one of the best for finding luxury properties in Greece if you want somewhere glamorous to stay. The most romantic thing about the island has to be the romantic horse-drawn carriages. There are practically no cars here, so walking hand-in-hand is the way to go.
This gem of the Aegean is formed from an explosive volcano eruption. It makes it one of the most visually stunning places in the region. The buildings here are all whitewashed, giving the impression of a sparkling and clean town on a sparkling blue sea. The landscape is notably rugged, giving you both plenty of opportunity for some challenging walks and climbs. Best of all, it is quiet, with the sound of the water by the shore making the perfect backing track for your romantic getaway.
The medieval Monemvasia Castle is one of the most romantic buildings in the world. Corfu is world-renowned as a favourite honeymoon destination.
