Old-world romance in the Eternal City

When in Rome… why not live it up in palatial style? Villa Agrippina Gran Meliá is a sumptuous spot, providing the perfect retreat after a day out exploring. 

Built in the classic Roman style, the villa’s terracotta walls and interior splashes of gold recall the glamour and luxury of old Rome. Step into the lush gardens and you’ll find a pool for sun-splashed afternoons and sun loungers under opulent pergolas.

Take a break from the buzz of the city at the fantastic spa, My Blend by Clarins, which also comes with a Turkish bath, whirlpool and massage treatments. Combine this with a great location, within reach of Vatican City and the Spanish Steps, and you have all the makings of a luxurious city break for two.

Head there with Jet2CityBreaks, and book a hassle-free ABTA and ATOL-protected package complete with flights, 22kg baggage included, a choice of hand-picked hotels and lots of great flight times for a deposit of just £60pp, before spreading the cost of the rest with convenient monthly payments**.

You’ll find four-bedroom Petrides Villa Paphos in the heart of the rolling Argaka countryside outside the resort city of Paphos. Sleeping eight, with four bathrooms and a lovely garden, this is the perfect retreat to share with other couples, set against a mountain backdrop.

Spend days lazing on the sunloungers by your private pool, enjoy evenings cooking up a storm with the barbeque and dining al fresco, sipping sundowners in the charming outdoor bar area. Here, life takes a slower pace.

Beach bliss in bohemian Ibiza

Soak up the Ibiza ambience at the Amare Beach Hotel Ibiza, a stylish adults-only resort from the VIBE by Jet2holidays collection, which promises the coolest hotels in the best party locations.

Gleaming white design, glass balconies and a chequered pool design set this spot apart, and it’s located right by San Antonio Bay, meaning the golden beach is mere steps away.

Don’t miss the Belvue Rooftop Bar and the amazing infinity pool for spectacular views. And dusk is when it all happens, with sunset DJ sessions by the pool and rooftop dinners.

A recipe for romance in Crete

From hidden beaches to island escapes and charming old town strolls, Will Tingle and his girlfriend Laura Read found romance galore when they booked a Jet2holidays trip to Crete, with return flights, transfers and 22kg baggage included.

Staying at the Rimondi Boutique Hotel in Rethymnon, the couple blended the feel of a cultural escape with plenty of beach days.

‘Rethymnon is a very beautiful old fishing town and is very cute to walk around,’ explains Laura. ‘There are lots of old streets, nice tavernas and little shops.’

‘Yes, the old town is really lovely,’ adds Will. ‘There are a lot of things for couples to do as well, such as excursions and activities, and the restaurants are really set up for couples.

‘On my birthday, we went to an amazing restaurant where the whole ceiling was covered in vines and you can also enjoy sunset drinks on the waterfront in the evening, the whole place just has that romantic vibe.’

While there were sweeping sands just a short stroll from the hotel, Will and Laura combined lazy beach days with time spent out discovering more of the island.

‘We hired a car so that we could explore further,’ says Will. ‘We drove past amazing gorges and the hilly scenery from the car is wonderful. At one beach, Preveli, we hiked down 400 steps to the sea – that was a really special location, a highlight of the trip.

‘We also went to Chania, it’s about an hour away, and is a really pretty town to explore.’

Combining two islands in one holiday, the couple also opted to enjoy a day trip to Santorini.

Action and adventure! The couple loved a ride on a jetski

‘We had to get up early,’ says Laura. ‘But it really is an amazing place. It’s so beautiful and the views are incredible.’

Then in the evenings, it was time to enjoy the wonderful local cuisine.

‘Where we were staying, there was so much choice on your doorstep, so we tried a different spot each night,’ says Laura.

‘The people in Crete were so friendly and the people in the restaurants were so passionate about food and wine,’ explains Will.

‘I didn’t know they were big on their wine, but they have a lot of vineyards. They loved talking about it and we loved drinking it!

‘We’re really keen to go back to Crete and also see more of Greece, the mainland and the islands.

‘We loved it.’
