romantic weekend break Europe

Fazenda Nova is something that we like to call a place with a ‘soul.’ This lovely boutique country stay is set in the stunning Portuguese Algarve and houses ten beautifully decorated homes, an organic restaurant, and a salt water pool with gazebos amidst bamboo and olive trees. With typical white villages and the Algarve’s renowned beaches just around the corner, this place makes for a perfect romantic parent escape in Europe.

The organic restaurant menu is one of Fazenda Nova’s many wonderful features. It changes daily, based on which delicious (fresh) products the chef finds at the local markets, and what is growing in Fazenda Nova’s own herb garden. Make sure to try some home-produced olive oil. After dinner, indulge in one of many delightful Portuguese wines (from the honesty bar), and admire the starry skies from the comfort of your private garden or patio.

 

2. Maison Bréguet | Paris | France

There is no better place to immerse yourself in romance than in the city of love. This small, yet stylish (modern) design hotel is located in the 11th arrondissement, a less touristy area of Paris that is rich with bistros, a market with local heritage food, and lovely boutique shops. We guarantee that you will find the romantic French authenticity you desire. If you do wish to partake in the hustle and bustle of Paris’ tourist hotspots, a walk along the Seine River will take you to Pont Neuf, the Notre Dame, and the Louvre Museum in no time. Another ideal romantic parent escape in Europe, if you ask us.
