Every February 14th, ‘the most romantic day of the year’ rolls around. And while some buy into the idea with chocolate boxes, red roses and special gifts, we think that the best way to show you care is by booking a romantic break away for you and your other half this Valentine’s Day. That’s why we’ve scoured our collection of villas for two and handpicked the top 10 quirky and romantic villas for couples, allowing you to really spoil your partner this year.
