This year, Valentine’s day falls on a Tuesday making it an ideal way to finish a long romantic weekend away. Many people living and working in London and other European financial hubs are searching for a nearby location with plentiful daily flights where they can enjoy a romantic break with their loved one. If you are single this year, then the destinations listed below all cater for groups of friends or even families. Here is our pick of the top 3 Valentine’s getaways in Europe.
A weekend escape to Mallorca allows you to take advantage of budget flights from several destinations around Europe and it also offers some well needed winter sunshine. Mallorca is an island that caters to visitors of all ages. It is one of the few places in Europe that offers a harmonious blend between culture, golf, fine cuisine and some world class nightlife. Marriott’s Son Antem boasts luxurious accommodations in close proximity to some of the most beautiful spots on the island, as well as having a world famous golf course and 5 star spa.
One of the most appealing spots in Mallorca is the capital city of Palma. Palma gives you the opportunity to immerse yourself in the cultural sights of the island, do some shopping and also visit some of the gastro restaurants for an evening meal. After dinner you can head to one of the nearby bars or nightclubs for an action packed itinerary.
Marbella is best visited during the early Spring for those who are less interested in mad nightlife and more interested in fine dining, golfing and enjoying the sunny microclimate found on the coast. There are a number of romantic restaurants in the area, a couple of which have received Michelin Stars and if you stay at Marriott’s Marbella beach resort you will be just a stone’s throw away from all of the amenities you could think of.
The best part of enjoying a long weekend in Marbella is that the beaches will be empty, but the temperature is warm enough to spend the whole day catching some rays. Whilst most of the beach chiringuitos close for the month of January, many of them are re-opening on Valentine’s weekend so you will always be able to find somewhere to grab a bite to eat at lunchtime.
If you are looking for something different to do, then why not head to Disneyland in Paris? Whilst it is traditionally a place for children, more and more adults are letting their hair down and enjoying the fun to be had here. Marriott’s village d’ile de France offers you the best of both worlds. You are right on the doorstep of Disneyland, whilst also being close to the city. This gives you the option to take a trip into the centre of Paris during the most romantic weekend of the year for lunch or dinner, whilst also taking part in all of the fun that Disneyland has to offer.
