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, but you also 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 some of our favourite honeymoon villas from our portfolio. Which one strikes your fancy? Let us know in the comments below.
1. 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: £1,645 per week | $1,994 per week
Most romantic for: Santorini is known the world over for being one – if not the – most romantic island in Greece. Boasting stunning views of the volcanic caldera, you and your other half can take a morning dip in the gorgeous pool or sip cocktails while watching one of Santorini’s world-famous sunsets. Villa Arcturus is a private hideaway tucked away from the hustle and bustle but still near to the local tavernas, bars and restaurants.
Prices from: £1,822 per week | $2,208
Most romantic for: A cosy wintery honeymoon. We love Le Cocon for a beautiful autumn/winter romantic break. This quirky hideaway cottage is furnished with owners’ creative flair, including locally sourced artefacts and unique art. Walk to the nearby village for your morning coffee and croissant, to the lake for a tranquil swim, or even to the local jazz festival for some musical atmosphere. A feast for the eye, Le Cocon has much to delight over – the entire cottage is like a jewellery box of artistic surprises. We can’t think of a better place for a cute and cosy escape.
Prices from: £582 per week | $705 per week
Most romantic for: Getting away from it all. Muz Evi is a gorgeous little one-bed home that provides peace and tranquility for two, with e lovely pool, jacuzzi and lush views of pine-clad hills. Marmaris and all its amenities and beaches are not far away too. The house is decked out with kilim carpets and local artisan pieces showing its commitment to supporting local. Couples who appreciate the same will feel right at home here.
Prices from: £748 per week | $906 per week
5. Villa Jaru, Phuket

6. Comporta Onyria, Portugal
Most romantic for: Enjoying space and sunshine. Found in the hippy-chic region of Herdade de Comporta overlooking rice fields and lush vegetation, this is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts. The wild beaches nearby are a surfer’s dream and the house is ideal to retire back to after active days out. Whitewashed walls are dressed with colourful curios and books on shelves, and outside, the dinner table beneath the cabana is wonderful for enjoying dinner al fresco.
Prices from: £2,714 per week | $3,294 per week
7. Trullo Massimiliano, Puglia
Most romantic for: A traditional, ancient Trullo house akin to a chocolate-box cottage, this is a truly unique place to stay on your honeymoon.

8. Villa Rocio, Mallorca
Most romantic for: The 8×4 metre pool will be impossible to leave. A getaway to Villa Rocio means bronzing and bathing all day long, and when you’ve had your fill of sunshine, there are glorious shaded terraces to stretch out on too. The old town of Pollensa is mere steps away where you can enjoy excellent restaurants, and the coast is just a short drive away if you can pull yourself away from the house…!
Prices from: £771 per week | $935 per week
9. 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.
