  1. Santorini ranks 1st on the list of the most romantic holidays in the world. The calling card of this popular island in Greece is its famous sunsets. Blue-and-white villages trickle-down stark mountains saluting the sea, with dozens of hotel and bar terraces positioned for the chink of champagne glasses as the sun sinks. Many accommodation options are designed for maximum privacy, some have private plunge pools, and several are adults-only. Santorini gets crazy busy in summer, but that’s no biggie if you can afford your own little slice of the horizon.

    Blue-domed houses so white, they sparkle are a treat to behold, while the twinkling azure Aegean Sea beckons travelers in the distance. This picturesque sea is the main reason many newlyweds choose Santorini. In addition to its ability to cool off even the most overheated of travelers, this watery haven offers captivatingly pink, orange, and golden sunsets best viewed from the town of Oia. It's still utterly romantic, but you won't be the only ones enjoying Mother Nature's fantastic nightly display — Oia gets packed at sunset, no matter the season. Many of Santorini's boutiques, restaurants, and resorts are built into the jagged cliff sides, giving couples the chance to book a unique private escape for their trip. While walking through town, don't be surprised if you end up on someone's roof. If you're feeling more adventurous, rent a scooter. There's little more romantic than holding on to your partner as you wind your way along the scenic roadways.

  2. Is any romantic roundup complete without singing the praises of the City of Lights? Provence in France ranks 2nd on the list of the most romantic holidays in the world. Artistic luminaries of the 19th and 20th centuries were clear on the romantic appeal of Provence. Cézanne was a native of the region, but it also lured Picasso, Monet, and Van Gogh with its lavender fields, pavement cafes, and attractive light. From the sweeping bridge of Avignon to the glamour of Nice and cobbled squares of Aix-en-Provence – there’s enough eye-candy in this southern swathe of France to make even the most hardened realist swoon.

    Fragrant lavender fields can be found popping up everywhere in Provence in summer. It’s the most famous crop in the region and one that has held significant importance for the people for centuries. But the lavender fields of Provence aren’t just a source of pride for the locals; they’re also a key Provence attraction that draws in visitors from around the world, year after year. An important note – some lavender farmers have put up fences surrounding part of their farms in an effort to thwart visitor numbers.

    The Valensole Plateau is famous the world over for its lavender fields, but it’s also home to impressive historical sites, golden fields of wheat and sunflowers, charming Provençal villages, and deep turquoise lakes. Perhaps the most famous village in the Valensole Plateau is deservedly that of Valensole itself. This colorful village sits elevated above the plateau, with the 11th century St Blaise church at its helm. Pastel-colored houses crowd the narrow streets and the hidden gardens beckon you to discover their secrets. Take a pause here on your tour of the lavender fields of Valensole to take a stroll, sample lavender-laced delicacies, or sit in a curbside cafe for lunch. At the other end of the Valensole Plateau lies Sainte-Croix-du-Verdon, a picturesque village hanging on the hillside overlooking the vast lac de Sainte-Croix.
