The nice thing about getting married is it’s the gift that keeps on giving. Not only do you get a fantastic day surrounded by all your friends and family, you get to say “I Do” to the love of your life and party the night away. And just when you think things can’t get any better and you couldn’t be more loved up, you and your brand new spouse get to jet off on your honeymoon.
Here at Oliver’s Travels, we’ve got a fantastic selection of romantic honeymoon villas that offer every kind of luxury. You could be sitting back and sunning yourself on a pristine Caribbean beach, snuggling up in the cosy comfort of a classic British cottage or living the high life in your own private enclave of a French chateau. We thought we might help make that choice a little easier by selecting ten of our favourite honeymoon villas from our portfolio. Which one strikes your fancy? Let us know in the comments below.
1. Rapunzels Folie, Dordogne
Most romantic for: Rapunzels Folie is an independent 15th-century holiday home in the grounds of a private chateau. Its lakeside location and gorgeous décor make for a truly sumptuous stay. And if you and your new spouse like fine dining, you couldn’t be better placed to sample all the wonderful delicacies of the Dordogne.
Prices from: £1,947 per week.
2. La Casetta, Umbria
Most romantic for: As it’s found in the picturesque hilltop town of Spello, La Casetta is great if you and your honeybunch want to explore the town as opposed to the country. Lounge in the garden or strike out and explore some of Italy’s most beautiful towns and culturally important cities – Florence and Assisi are both close by.
Prices from: £1,167 per week.
3. Villa Burbujas, Tenerife
Most romantic for: This unique and stylish villa is part of one of the most luxurious spa resorts in Tenerife, so if your private hydro massage shower and Balinese day bed aren’t relaxing enough, you can book yourselves in for a couples massage treatment before enjoying a sunset stroll on the beach, which is also on your doorstep.
Prices from: £2,414 per week.
4. Pepperpoint, St. Lucia
Most romantic for: Nestled on a hillside, this villa can give newlyweds all the intimacy and seclusion they need while located close to a range of amenities for the ultimate dates day and night. Enjoy the morning view of the emerald-green ocean from the hammock on your private terrace then head to the beach for a romantic walk. If you fancy yourselves an active pair, why not try some of the nearby golfing?
Prices from: £1,497 per week.
5. Bambu Luxury Tent, Estepona
Most romantic for: As the name suggests, you’ll be staying in a tent – but you guessed it, there’s a twist. Oozing in style, your tent is the true definition of decadent. Plus, before setting foot on site, you have the choice of picking a scent that will perforate the room on arrival. Car hire is a must, due to the rural location of the retreat, but the owners will sort you out with taxis so you can enjoy the wining and dining of the regions.
Prices from: £2,519 per week.
6. Villa Chambre Du Paradis, Dordogne
Most romantic for: This stone cottage is a cosy and yet elegant getaway ideal for couples who enjoy good food, wine and relaxation. There’s ample opportunity to explore neighbouring villages, lively cafes and a top of the range sporting facilities.
Prices from: £845 per week.
7. La Chiesetta, Tuscany
Most romantic for: The views! This charmingly compact converted church overlooks huge swathes of the Tuscan countryside (the pictures don’t really do it justice), so crack open a bottle of the excellent local Chianti and watch the sunsets with your husband/wife. The two walkable villages are great for romantic meals, too.
Prices from: £1,095 per week.
8. Las Violetas, Mallorca
Most romantic for: This cute and contemporary villa is set in secluded grounds surrounded by picturesque mountains. If you want to venture out of your private paradise, it’s just a 10-minute stroll arm-in-arm to the pretty town of Pollensa with its cobbled streets and great restaurants. The beach is also just a 10-minute drive away.
Prices from: £868 per week.
9. Casa Maroc, Costa Del Sol
Most romantic for: Casa Maroc has perfected the art of romance and privacy with a bespoke personal service. The home is set in an intimate retreat of tropical gardens and boasts a swimming pool, honesty bar, sauna with hammam and the Woodland spa offering a variety of treatments to indulge you. Despite its rural location, you’ll only ever be a 20-minute drive from the coastline of the Costa del Sol.
Prices from: £2,008 per week.
10. Villa Tranquillo, Le Marche
Most romantic for: Le Marche is a hugely underrated part of Italy but a break at Villa Tranquillo will make you feel like you’ve got the whole region to yourself. Better yet, the villa has a spa corner fit with a hot tub. So, whilst you enjoy the seclusion of the villa, you may as well opt for some skinny dipping too.
Prices from: £1,003 per week.
11. Daffodil Cottage, Cotswolds
Most romantic for: This 393-year-old thatched cottage is the perfect spot for a romantic escape. The cosy decor sets the scene to snuggle up in your own little hideaway. What’s more, is there’s a selection of fantastic gourmet country pubs that are ideal for date nights!
Prices from: £698 per week.
12. Bluff Cottage, Barbados
Most romantic for: Steps away from the famous Sandy Lane Beach, this private and chic cottage is a wonderful Carribean hideaway. The verandah off the bedroom is set in a private tropical garden, a perfect spot for breakfast or late-night relaxing with a glass of the famous local rum.
Prices from: £4,266 per week.
