Couple in the lavender fields of Brihuega in Guadalajara

Get away to Spain with your special someone and disconnect from city life


Constant rushing around, traffic jams, meetings, lack of sleep and then it starts all over again! When city life begins to seem like an obstacle course, it’s probably time for a romantic getaway.

Spain offers a wealth of idyllic natural spaces to disconnect from the city with your partner. Here are some of them: - The Irati Forest in Navarre. A natural treasure of great ecological value, considered to be the second largest and best-preserved forest of beech and fir trees in Europe. It can be reached from Ochagavía and Orbaizeta, two towns where you’ll find charming rural accommodation. Although Irati is pure beauty at any time of the year, it’s in autumn when the variety of colours in the landscape reaches its full splendour. A fairytale forest, for an unforgettable getaway. - Cherry trees in bloom in Jerte Valley, Extremadura. Every spring, more than a million and a half cherry trees cover Jerte in white, offering an unparalleled spectacle which makes way for the joyful Cherry Blossom Festival. This celebration encourages visitors to join in and share tradition and delicacies. Like cherries, something good to share as a couple.

- The lavender fields of Brihuega in La Alcarria, Guadalajara. In summer, the fields of Brihuega are a violet sea of lavender in bloom. An event which leads to popular activities such as the Lavender Festival in July, before the harvest. Music, good food, and sunsets with the aroma of lavender. A romantic getaway with all the right ingredients. Cangas de Onís and the lakes of Covadonga in Asturias. This destination, in the Picos de Europa National Park, one of the most impressive natural spots in Spain, offers the perfect combination of history, local cuisine (a special mention goes to its cheese!) and nature. A visit in winter has its appeal, such as avoiding the crowds, the unique sight of frozen lakes and the chance to curl up together in front of the fire. Getting lost in ancient forests, dancing in fields of flowers or waking up to a mountain view: Spain has the secret to returning home with a new lease of life and a full heart. When are you going to get away?
