Romantic Valentines Day Ideas?
Is it more important to love … or to be loved?
Most of us would agree with George Eliot’s words, “I like not only to be loved, but also to be told I am loved.”
Surprise your spouse with a special getaway together.
The man who suggested this made reservations at a bed and breakfast, arranged for childcare, asked for time off from work for himself and his wife, and packed his and her bags. When he asked his wife to go to lunch on Valentine’s Day she was in for a wonderful surprise. “The little bit of effort I put into that weekend paid off huge for weeks to come.”
So why not pamper yourself and your loved one by spending a few days away at the beautiful Cancello Est? Stay in one of their superbly restored en-suite rooms. Visit local wineries and see the archaeological splendours of times gone by, culminating in a visit to the Mardi Gras in the town of Offida. Famed for its Ancient church and Templar Knight history, this tiny part of Le Marche puts the boat out in style with young men dressing up in traditional costumes and chasing through the streets to catch a fake ox. Then on the final night watch the townspeople, again in traditional costume walk in single file through the village streets carrying burning torches to a massive bonfire in the village square. This procession, in the form of a snake made of fire, marks the end of the Carnevale.
Travel back to the hotel after having a memorable night out, sleep in in the morning and enjoy a huge Full English Breakfast before making your way home.
