Romantic getaways in Spain: not just country guest houses


When you imagine your future romantic getaway, think of peace and quiet, and a place where you can unwind. Spain offers endless natural settings to enjoy as a couple, whether or not you stay at a country guesthouse. Some of these villages could be on your list when you come to make your getaway a reality.

- Trujillo, Extremadura. Its square dominated by a statue of Francisco Pizarro and its pretty streets will get your attention, but its best feature is its location near Monfragüe National Park. - Aínsa, Aragón. A village with a medieval past, surrounded by vast, wild natural spaces like Ordesa y Monte Perdido National Park and Sierra y Cañones de Guara Natural Park. They are waiting for you and your loved one to explore them. - Besalú, Catalonia. Its majestic bridge will lead you to an adventure made for two, and later you can visit the Hayedo de Jordá, an enchanted beech forest which is especially stunning in autumn.

- Valldemossa, Mallorca. Sheltered by the Tramontana mountains, the village is notable for its russet stone and its Carthusian monastery. This place has already captured the hearts of many couples in Europe, and many artists over the years. - Cudillero, Asturias. A village with its own unique charm. Its colourful houses contrast with the water, where you can toast your love in a restaurant near the sea.  - Hita, Castilla-La Mancha. With its historic past and medieval architecture, in Hita you can live out a love story in a Middle Ages setting. And in this part of Guadalajara, you can visit the lavender fields and capture beautiful memories on your mobile. These villages will linger in your memory as one of the best couples’ holidays and a place to kindle the flame of love. When are you coming?
