If you yearn to get away from it all on your honeymoon, and you don’t feel like staying in a hotel, how about renting a cosy villa for you? Some come with a private pool, some with a hot tub where you can sit out and watch the stars at night. Here are the companies I recommend.

To Tuscany – villas in Italy

A lot of villas in Italy are large houses for families or groups of friends, but To Tuscany has a great selection of villas for two. Most have a swimming pool set in private gardens and a cosy terrace with views. You can expect free Prosecco if you’re on honeymoon, and a maid and chef service on request.

Vintage Travel – villas across Europe

Vintage Travel is one of the UK’s leading villa operators and has properties in countries across Europe, from Portugal to Turkey. It has a lovely selection of villas for two, each of which has its own private pool.

Oliver’s Travels – luxury villas for two

If you want to up the budget in exchange for a bit more luxury, take a look at Oliver’s Travels, which has some very classy options. It is particularly strong in popular regions of France, along with Italy and Spain. See its villas for two.

GIC – The Villa Collection – Greece

GIC was originally named Greek Islands Club, and Greece remains its heartland. It has a fabulous collection of villas with pools across the country including many that are perfect for couples.

Sugar & Loaf – hot tubs in Wales

If you want to escape to some of the finest countryside in the UK, check out Sugar & Loaf which specialises in boutique, boho and quirky rental properties in rural Wales. Check out these romantic hideaways, all with private hot tubs.

Rural Retreats – the best of England

Rural Retreats has an outstanding collection of cottages to rent in England. It has put together a directory of properties for two, each with a hot tub. Choose from Cumbria, Dorset, Herefordshire, Suffolk, Sussex and Lake District.
