Romance for lovers of the Unusual

Posted By PrincessRoxy on Feb 13, 2013 at 5:50PM

Romance, for lovers of the Unusual.

At Unusual we think the best way to sweep that special person off their feet is to take them to a place they will never forget, so we've put together a list of places in Europe to tempt you. With over 180 properties classified as Romantic on the website, we provide something for nearly every interest, type of person and budget.

To help you make a selection, we've made suggestions based on your Romantic Type!

Nature and Adventure lovers:  You love camping and the great outdoors, you like to snuggle up close, and a run outside to the bathroom doesn't bother you .

Our pick:  The treehouses at Cabanes als Arbres, near Barcelona, Spain, although if you're willing to bare all, why not get your clothes off at the Clover Clothes Free Spa and Hotel in Birmingham, UK.

Hopeless romantics:  You like a classic experience, oozing with opulence. Brocade and velvet, heaps of pillows, perhaps a romantic boat ride.

Our pick:  The award winning romance of Ca Maria Adele in Venice, Italy.
