Valentine’s Day. It’s fair to say that it’s not going to be quite the same this year. Many of us are unable to see our loved ones and romantic retreats are off the cards until after lockdown – but that won’t stop us dreaming! After all, we all need something to look forward to at the moment…
So, we’ve scoured our collection of villas for two and handpicked the top 10 quirky, romantic villas for couples so you can really spoil your partner when everything is back to normal!
The Love Bridge, Suffolk
Prices from: £156pn | 215USD
Starting off with one that we may be able to visit sooner rather than later, The Love Bridge does exactly what it says on the tin. Settled on it’s own private island far from neighbouring properties, this hidden love shack oozes romance, tranquillity and total privacy. Take a leisurely row down one of the private lakes, indulge in a champagne bubble bath in the bedroom tub or spend lazy summer evenings barbecuing al fresco on the terrace and relaxing in the private hot tub. The views are enough to make anybody fall in love…
Villa Kasika, Koh Yao Noi
Prices from: £238pn | 326USD
Now if this isn’t unique, we don’t know what is! With open-air rooms and suspended bridges, luxury and nature perfectly combine in this Thai treehouse. Built from bamboo, the structure seamlessly blends into its jungle surroundings leaving you feeling at one with nature. You and your loved one can enjoy exclusive sea views from your swinging settee or unwind in your own private plunge pool. For added romance, wander down to the private beach and watch the sensational sunsets.
Le Cocon, Brittany
Prices from: £38pn | 52USD
If you’re looking for something with creative flair, this alluring bolthole won’t disappoint. Furnished with antique and vintage touches and hand-dyed linens, it’s truly one of a kind. From the stunning copper bathtub in the bedroom to the snug living room, romance is written in the walls. Mosey on down to the village for coffee and pastries or visit the nearby lake before returning to this secluded cottage to relax on the double hammock.
Fairytale Cottage, Suffolk
Prices from: £130pn | 178USD
This one’s for all you old school romantics! Plucked straight from a fairytale (hence the name!), this thatched cottage overlooks its own private meadow. Retaining its original charm, the cottage is electricity-free so you’re in for candle-lit dinners and snuggling up by the fire. The free-standing bath is big enough for two so you can lounge in the bubbles and admire the woodland views. Truly magical!
Trulli Gabriella, Puglia
Prices from: £59pn | 81USD
Often referred to as Italy’s best kept secret, Puglia is an ideal couple’s destination. Overflowing with charm, this authentic stone-built trulli flaunts delightful alcoves and a charming conical shaped roof. Surrounded by cherry trees and grape vines, you can pick your breakfast together while soaking up the Mediterranean sun. The outdoor terrace is the perfect spot to appreciate your one-on-one time – sip an aperitivo at sunset or indulge in a meal of fresh, local produce.
Villa Rasamee, Keemala Phuket
Prices from: £410pn | 561USD

The rejuvenating Malal Spa offers a range of hollistic wellness treatments (all using 100% ethical and natural products) so you can both unwind and refresh. Soak up the rural views while you relax in the stone-effect bathtub or opt for a couple’s workout in the private terrace pool.
Villa Emel, Akyaka
Prices from: £69pn | 94USD
This minimalist haven offers mountain views and a relaxed way of life. Set away from the more touristy areas of Akyaka, you can immerse yourself in the serenity of this unique villa. Only 10 minutes from the beach, you’re never far from the popular attractions and you’ll surely want to try the local seafood delights! But if you fancy a bit of a quiet one together, the outdoor terrace is the ideal place for a relaxing game of cards or a joint swim in the picturesque pool.
Daffodil Cottage, Cotswolds
Prices from: £68pn | 93USD
Originally built in 1672, this historical hideaway makes for a characterful retreat in the Cotswolds. The rural location will give you your desired privacy while also being within easy reach of many idyllic Cotswolds towns and villages. From peaceful evenings chatting by the fire to morning strolls, hand in hand, in the surrounding countryside, this English oasis will leave you feeling seriously loved-up.
Royal Suite, Marrakech
