Romance isn’t just reserved for Valentine’s Day. Keep sparks flying year-round with an intimate villa hideaway in these alluring destinations across the globe. You’ll both be starry-eyed in no time.
Barbados: Private Paradise
Barbados’ beaches are simply heavenly. Composed of finely ground coral, the sand is clean, soft, and often tinged a gorgeous shade of pink. Add in crystal-clear water, breathtaking sunsets, and a private, fully staffed villa, and you have an island getaway ripe for romance.
Where to stay: 1-bedroom Leamington Cottage is located directly on a beautiful beach with a coral reef, perfect for swimming and snorkeling. Enjoy a spacious private pool and terrace as well as the services of a dedicated private cook/housekeeper.
Paris: The City of Light
Nothing says romance quite like Paris. Savor long meals and meandering conversation in terrace cafés, wander through blooming gardens, and get lost in winding cobblestone streets. With a bottle of wine in hand and the Eiffel Tower’s twinkling lights overhead, you’ll have no choice but to be swept up in amour.
Where to stay: The beautiful Tremoille, a modern 1-bedroom apartment in a 19th century building, provides everything you need for a romantic Parisian escape. You’ll find incredible restaurants, boutiques, and metro stations right outside your door.
Maui: The Magic Isle
Maui will capture your heart with its rainbow landscape of white-, black-, and red-sand beaches. Take a thrilling drive along the winding road to Hana, hike to bamboo forests, swim with dolphins, snorkel with sea turtles, and peer into the crater of the world's largest dormant volcano. Maui is your tropical playground.
Where to stay: The cozy 1-bedroom Bali Hale Cottage boasts a spectacular location on the foothills overlooking Lahaina Town with views of the islands in the distance. You and your special someone can enjoy your own private freshwater pool and pick fresh fruit from the orchards located on the 5-acre estate.
St. Martin: Caribbean Chic
St. Martin combines the incredible cuisine and fashionable boutiques of France with the laid-back island atmosphere of the Caribbean. After an impeccable dinner in Grand Case, "The Gourmet Capital of the Caribbean," take a moonlit stroll along the beach before returning to your private hideaway.
