Whether it is a country walk in the English Countryside, somewhere like Devonshire, breathing in the crisp fresh air, a mini-break in the eclectic city of Paris or an exhilarating safari in Kenya, here are my top recommendations for a romantic break to get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life and switch off, perfect for honeymoons, anniversaries, birthdays or just some much deserved quality time together.
Santorini’s awe-inspiring landscape dominated by the Caldera is a photographers dream and makes for a romantic island with totally mesmerising views. This picturesque island with its blue and white palette is the perfect Greek island for a romantic escape.

Antigua and Barbuda
Antigua and Barbuda will always be on my list as a top romantic destination as it is where my other half proposed. With 365 beaches to relax on, amazing food, amazing people, serenity, and beauty everywhere, it is definitely one of the best Caribbean islands that I have visited so far.

Not only is it easy to get to, Paris is one of the most romantic cities to visit where you can take a walk together down cute cobbled streets, indulge in sweet decadent pastries and freshly baked baguettes, see all the gorgeous landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower and have romantic dates enjoying all the wine and cheese.

Kenya is such a romantic place where you can enjoy an adrenalin rushed exhilarating safari and then relax on its stunning beaches – the perfect mix of adventure and relaxation. If you are looking for a romantic break which has a slice of everything, Kenya ticks all the right boxes.

Italy is so full of romance, and my favourite place is Tuscany with its rolling green hills, all the pasta and pizza and wine you could dream of, lush vineyards, creamy gelato and truffle! Whenever we think of choosing a romantic escape, Tuscany pops up as a nostalgic memory and I know one day we will be back!

Devon is our favourite place in the UK for a romantic staycation. There is nothing quite like the English countryside with its stunning views and tranquility. The highlight is the Devonshire Cream Tea to enjoy together as well as lovely walks through scenic fields. There are lots of lovely National Trust buildings to visit too.
