The Times UK’s Stephen Bleach had a fun article about romantic getaways in Europe this weekend titled “The Dirty Weekend Guide to Europe.” Bleach argues that a “place of [one’s] own” makes or breaks a romantic holiday and highlights a “dozen of the slushiest, smoochiest and downright sexiest hideaways on the Continent.” No surprise to us, four out of the 12 are in Italy:
- In Puglia, Trullo Zingaro (booking through Long Travel)
- On Lake Como, Casa Dell’Architetto
- In Sorrento, on the Amalfi Coast, Perla (booking through Wimco Villas)
- In Umbria, Castello di Reschio (booking through Abercrombie & Kent)
And, not a Tuscan villa among any of them. Be aware, however, that romance this luxurious comes at a price!
