Want to bring a little more romance into your holiday? We reveal the top traits of a romantic weekend
There are the obvious holiday destinations to take your loved one to if you are wanting to set the tone; Paris, Rome and Venice are three that immediately spring to mind.
However, if you are in the position where you are unable to jump on a flight and maybe want to stay closer to home, there are some features you should look for in your hotel – other than the mini bar in your room – to help make sure this is a holiday neither of you will forget.
Some people are born romantics whereas others need to work that little bit harder when trying to impress their significant others. However, thanks to a survey carried out by Blue Chip Holidays, we no longer need to guess at what romantic ingredients it will take to impress our other halves.
It will come as no great surprise that making sure you are alone tops the list of how to ensure it is a romantic weekend – rather than wrestling with the kids, or arguing over whose turn it is to empty the bins.
Getting away from it all gives couples the chance to unwind and really connect, helping them discover what made them fall for each other in the first place.
2. A little heat
Cuddling up in front of a wood-burning stove or open fire was voted into second place, and when you think about the fun of watching sparks fly and the warm glow you get inside it’s no surprise that this can help get people into the mood.
Low lighting and the excuse to cuddle closer for a little extra heat really helps to establish a suitable romantic feel.
3. Getting hot and steamy
Whether it’s the stars overhead, or the chance to sit and sip champagne while the bubbles massage away those aches and tensions, splashing around in a hot tub was voted into third place by the couples who took part in the survey.
