We are celebrating the month of February by sharing some of our top romantic accommodations.  Though February is certainly the month of love, these are ideas for a future couples trip any time of year!

This week, we focus on Portugal and Spain.  These two neighboring countries are perfect choices for a romantic vacation.

First, Portugal is a dream destination for couples who want a range of experiences. Located on the coast, there are a wealth of properties with dramatic, romantic sea views. Couples love exploring the cobblestone streets in beautiful cities like Lisbon.  Or, the mysterious and romantic castles in Sintra.  It truly is a trip that feels like something out of a fairytale.

Second, are there any countries more full of passion than Spain? With its world famous beaches, glitzy islands, romantic mountains and historical cities, Spain has it all.  This is the country that invented flamenco and samba.  They finished their seduction by topping it off with some of the best food and wine in the world.  In Spain, passion and living are entwined.  It’s an unforgettable trip for couples looking for romance.

In both of these countries, we have accommodations for all styles of traveler. We never forget that a romantic vacation can be found in a city or the countryside.
