Getaways for Valentine's Day

Valentine's getaway 2

I think I am not the only one who is questioning today the same thing that we asked in the title of this article: What kind of getaway to choose for Valentine's Day? And the fact is that there are so many possibilities, the variability of options, prices and websites that offer "juicy offers", that we doubt more than we should.

Today I am going to give you the options of getaways for Valentine's Day that I am considering and hopefully it will serve you as well so that you will be more clear about which option to finally choose.

Flight + hotel?

If we want to surprise our partner, tell him that about: "Honey, pack your bags for two days we are leaving but don't ask where ...", it is the most romantic and beautiful. And if on top of that we add a destination where it is better to opt for flights rather than by car, that would be the bomb.

What destinations I can think of?

  • Paris.
  • Rome.
  • Florence
  • Venice.
  • Gran Canaria.
  • Monaco.

But what should we take into account if we opt for this option?

  • Usually these types of getaways are usually more expensive, since the flight must be added to the hotel stay.
  • Must balance the flight times very well to match our availability, both on the way out and on the way back, and at the same time look for the most economical option so that we do not lose too much price.

If you can currently afford to spend a little more on these types of "surprises", this is undoubtedly one of the best options. On the internet you will find countless pages where they solve the issue of the flight and the hotel. What's more, for these types of dates the accommodation options usually come with welcome details like the typical chocolates and champagne, breakfasts included, massages or a one-hour sauna, etc.

Hotel or apart-hotel?

If we finally see that our schedule cannot be adjusted to the flight issue (we must not forget that it is only two days) and we opt for "Road and blanket"One of the options that we are presented with, at least the ones that I shuffle the most, is whether to choose a hotel or an apartment-hotel.

Advantages of choosing a hotel

  • You just have to worry about rest, relax and have a good stay accompanied by your partner.
  • They are usually found good deals with half board included.
  • In the vast majority of hotels you can have your parking area reserved (if you request it).

Advantages of choosing an apartment-hotel

  • The stay of an apart-hotel is bigger (usually) than a hotel room. You have your little kitchen and your little living room included.
  • You are not limited to the fixed hours of a hotel for breakfast, lunch, dinner ... If you want to have a "saving" getaway, you can always buy something in a supermarket and cook it in the apartment itself.

Therefore, if you are clear about where to go with your partner, now you can be more clear about what you want and how you want to enjoy those 48 hours of rest and romance.

And how about a rural getaway?

For those of us who are from the city, rushing everywhere, breathing "very little" clean air, not seeing green landscapes, the proposal of a rural getaway is very interesting, especially now in winter. The idea of ​​staying in a place with a fireplace, where you go out and find more fauna and flora than people, etc. especially draws attention.

Many possibilities come to me with this type of getaway:

  • Do some hiking route.
  • Visit small villages from around.
  • Take a lost house in a small town together with other couples of friends and just enjoy and disconnect from everything for a few days.

Isn't it interesting? For me it is one of the winning proposals for this type of getaway.
