If you are thinking about treating your loved one to a romantic break for Valentines this year but haven’t decided where to take them read on for some ideas from the UK and further afield.

We asked our Facebook fans to tell us about their favourite Valentines destinations and have some great suggestions to share with you. Amanda recommends Prague describing it as “the most romantic city in the world, like a living fairytale.” Fellow Facebook fan Cheryl agrees and highly recommends the four star hotel Andel’s which she says is “very trendy and not expensive”.

Venice is another favourite, with Russell saying “I took my wife, it’s absolutely beautiful at this time of year and well worth it.” On travelrepublic.co.uk at the moment flights are available from East Midlands to Venice (departing 11th Feb and returning 14th Feb) for £168 return. Try the 3 star Alla Giustizia hotel, described as being good value for money in our customer reviews.

Another Italian city traditionally associated with romance is Rome. Jacinta says “my husband took me there for Valentines and it was perfect.” On our website right now flights are available from London Heathrow to Rome departing on the 11th February for 4 nights for £125 return. The four star Summit Hotel has availability for the Valentines weekend and is highly rated in our customer reviews.

If you’d like to try something a little different, head to the Canary islands for a short break in the winter sun. Fuerteventura has been a popular suggestion and you can currently find flights on the website from London Stansted airport departing on 11th Feb for four nights for £221. We still have availability at over a hundred hotels for these dates.

If you would prefer to woo your loved one a little closer to home why not get back to nature and take a trip to the Lake District? The four star child free Willowsmere Guest House in Windermere has won several awards and one of our customers remarked “I have nothing but praise for this hotel.”

For those of you who prefer something a little more lively try one of our hotels in the heart of London for a fun and romantic night away. The Mandeville Hotel in the West End serves a selection of afternoon teas, including a chocolate afternoon tea, which should be a hit with the ladies.

Don’t forget you can bring the cost of your romantic getaway down by booking before the Travel Republic sale ends at midnight on Monday 31st January.
