Venue - check. Rings - check. Cake - check… What's missing? The honeymoon! Let's be honest (although we may be slightly biased), it's one of the most important parts of the whole wedding process. If you're seeking inspiration for that perfect post-wedding getaway, why not look a little closer to home with some seriously romantic destinations right on our doorsteps...here's a handpicked selection of top destinations for honeymoons in Europe.
In Greece we have chosen the Cyclades, a particularly dreamy area, and an ideal summer Greek honeymoon choice. We would recommend the island of Santorini, one of the most famous Greek islands, and physically one of the most romantic and spectacular islands in the world, with its giant sea-filled caldera created by an ancient volcanic eruption. To make the stay even more luxurious we reccomend staying at Grace Santorini - romantic al fresco settings do not get any better than they are at Grace. The quaint towns of Fira and Ia cling to the faces of soaring cliffs that plunge straight into the sea and there are a number of super-chic and highly romantic boutique hotels that we know well. Finally for full get away from the crowds' privacy, try the little known but beautiful island of Paros, and the Yria hotel has an excellent private cottage for seclusion-seeking 'mooners.
Of course we had to include the beautiful Italy, home to enticing food, perfect landscapes and breathtaking beaches, who wouldn't want to begin married life in such bliss. For the beautiful beaches along the Amalfi Coast, we would recommend hotel Caruso, located in Ravello and perched on a cliffside high above the sea; this stunning accommodation commands the ultimate panorama over the Amalfi Coast. Alternatively you may prefer the stunning sights of Rome, in which case you can stay at the beautiful Hotel de Russie where many of the top attractions of the Eternal City are within easy walking distance, including the Borghese gardens and gallery, the Pantheon and the fashion houses of Via Condotti. Whichever area you prefer, Italy provides plenty of choice to suit all newlywed couples.
The list wouldn't be complete without including the single most romantic destination on the planet… France, which we believe offers more to newlyweds than almost anywhere. There are immaculate hotels along the resurgent Riviera such as the Le Mas Candille, a flawless four-star hotel in the attractive village of Mougins, five miles from Cannes. Alternatively, France offers chateaux properties such as the Chateau de Bagnols, set amongst vineyards, forests and green hills in the heart of the Beaujolais countryside, to satisfy the dreamiest knight in shining armour fantasies. Choose between beautiful beaches, chic cities and mountain retreats, and then, of course, there's all that delicious food. J'adore…
