Anniversaries are always a special time and provide a great opportunity for us to spoil the ones that we love. If you’re planning some time away with your partner to celebrate your anniversary, it’s lucky that you want everything to be just right. With a view to creating the perfect anniversary getaway, here is a look at a few tips for planning the trip of your dreams.
Planning the destination
Whether or not a holiday is a success is largely down to the destination you choose. The good news is that if you’re looking for a short romantic break, your options are not limited. You’ll probably want to stay clear of busier destinations or those which cater specifically to families, but the one choice you’ll really need to make is to decide between a city or beach break.
Sorting the accommodation
A romantic getaway demands one thing – privacy. While it can sometimes be nice to enjoy the buzz of a hotel, particularly if you’re travelling to the city, it can be great for couples to stay in self-catering accommodation where privacy is paramount.
Particularly if you’re travelling to a beach destination, cheap villa holidays are a great way to create a base from which you and your partner can travel at leisure. Busier beach accommodation can often be packed with young kids and large families, making it difficult for you and your partner to enjoy one another’s company in peace.
Do your research
Whether you’re staying in the heart of a city or in a remote beach villa, it’s always nice to have at least one day during your holiday where you do something special. The last thing you want to spend your time doing on any holiday – particularly one to celebrate an anniversary – is last minute planning. For this reason, it’s important that you carry out a fair bit of research in advance.
This will allow you to gauge what options are open to you in the local area, making it possible to plan a special activity to help you and your partner get the most of your time on holiday. Always popular at beach destinations are boat rides and long walks, while city-dwellers might do well to take a trip to the city’s edge or to a special restaurant or performance which shows the city in its very best colours.
