Here are the most romantic places
on Earth, according to the love experts
Love is all around, but where best to make it flourish?
For classic Italian romance away from the crowds, fixer Merrion Charles (who has arranged trips to Italy’s best-kept secrets for clients including Bear Grylls and Jude Law) suggests a mix of coastal and inland Tuscany in the Maremma.
“The coast of Maremma has long, sandy beaches lined with umbrella pines, and no built-up resorts. Combine a villa on the island of Ponza with a boutique hotel such as Conti di San Bonifacio – a wine estate just behind the coast that feels like a private home, with seven rooms and long-stretching views across the vines and olive groves. Then maybe finish in a boutique hotel in Florence.”
