How about doing something a bit different for your next weekend away with your partner? Unusual trips, one-of-a-kind experiences, and striking landscapes. From the Strait of Gibraltar and Lake Como to Luxembourg's hidden treasures, find out more about these four unique destinations.
Are you a fan of beaches and breathtaking landscapes? Take your partner on a trip to a fascinating spot with incredible views, both inland and out to sea. After leaving your room at the ibis Bord de Mer in Roscoff, start by strolling through the city streets, lined by impressive buildings once owned by prosperous shipowners. Then set off to explore the Pink Granite coast, before taking a boat trip to the stunning Île de Batz.
At the southern tip of Spain, just a few miles from Morocco, a British enclave links these two different cultures. Gibraltar is known for its narrow strait, and there's plenty to see in this fascinating area. There's the famous Rock, St. Michael's Cave and the Ibrahim-al-Ibrahim Mosque. In the evening, enjoy the comfort of the Mercure Algeciras hotel, a spot that's halfway between Europe and North Africa in every respect.
Rome, Milan, Florence, Venice: you already know all these Italian hotspots like the back of your hand. To get away from them and from the Mediterranean, grab your partner and head to Lake Como in the heart of Lombardy. The competitively priced ibis Como hotel is an ideal option for exploring the lake and its surroundings, including Como Cathedral and Villa Carlotta. Heaven awaits.
Bordering Belgium, Germany and France, Luxembourg is a little-known, quiet country. Your base at the Sofitel Luxembourg Le Grand Ducal hotel is perfect for seeing all the sights. Notre Dame de Luxembourg, Château de Vianden and Fort Thüngen will take you by surprise with their striking architecture, and provide the perfect backdrop to your romantic getaway.
