Archived summer, even the so-called San Martino, and waiting for the feast of the Immaculate Conception that anticipates the long Christmas holidays, you can cut out a few days to devote to a real romantic getaway. So the winter seems less long and boring, the intimacy of the couple gains and also the mood at the thought of being able to spend magical moments in some romantic places. Here we suggest you five ideals for romantic dream getaways.

Romantic dream shelters

I 7 archi

For those who want to stay in the area, that is in Puglia, our advice is to take refuge in one of the comfortable small houses of I 7 Archi in the heart of the most candid village of Italy, Ostuni.

In these cozy apartments, complete with everything, the atmosphere is very enveloping, so ideal to feel pampered like a cocoon in the silence of the old town where you walk and the traffic is far away. Strictly in two, at most three if the third element is hairy and with four legs as in our case!


Moving away from the Apulian borders, but only a little, we advise you to reach Tursi, in Basilicata. In Rabatana, the oldest and most evocative neighborhood from the name meaning “Arab’s den”, a delightful English lady named Martine Greslon will welcome you in her fairytale realm between red-brick arches and rooms with a star roof.

The two apartments of The Orangery Retreat are both romantic covens par excellence, with the terrace overlooking the village-nativity scene that rises between the gullies and the room with a large iron bed, fireplace and fountain, all open air.

planaMoving a little further up, in that Campania which borders on Lazio and which is notoriously known as Terra dei Fuochi, there is, quite unexpectedly,
the possibility of spending a holiday of love in a sort of limbo in a cottage that seems to float on a lake that is tinged with gold at sunset.

We are talking about the Plana Resort, in Castel Volturno inside the Mediterranean EcoPark, and its 14 lodges overlooking the former sand quarries now swimming, surrounded by dense vegetation and populated by various species of freshwater fish and marsh birds. Guests have access to the restaurant with local specialties, a riding school, a beauty farm for massages in total relaxation and the large swimming pool: for a complete immersion in the couple’s life without external distractions.

Locanda Rosa Rosae

For the other two proposals we must instead move to the north-east of our peninsula. One of the most romantic places in which I, Michele and Otto have been, is the mill of 1570 restored in shabby chic style by the architect Silvio Stefani and his wife Elisabetta: Locanda Rosa Rosae in the Breda di Piave countryside near Treviso, the perfect theater for an escape of love and charm.

The atmosphere is made magical by the ever fresh flowers and the tremulous light of the many candles that adorn each corner. Spending a short vacation here offers unforgettable moments. Only contraindication? The impression you get is to be in heaven and the temptation is to never leave again.

Casa Oberrichter

A At Casa Oberrichter, in the delightful village of Malborghetto, in Friuli almost on the border with Austria, hearts are everywhere: more romantic than that! The place is the ideal environment for a dream of relaxation and to enjoy the pleasure of long walks in any season.

Casa Oberrichter, is certainly among the perfect destinations for a love escape in a magical world with its air of marzipan house, its refined warmth and attention to detail of furniture, from the warm ceramic stoves to the many wooden sculptures made by Silvano Nicolaucich and decorated by his wife Marina Gioitti.

But these are only the first five because we are willing to experiment with other romantic places where can escape in any season of the year in two or even with the third hairy mess in tow.
