Dan surprised me with flight to Paris, the city of love for our first anniversary! It was so sweet of him and we had the most romantic weekend exploring this gorgeous city. Located only steps away from the iconic Champs-Élysées and Arc de Triomphe was our hotel, Hotel Napoleon. The hotel was sophisticated and luxurious and proudly displays its incredible history. We stayed in a gorgeous Junior Suite which overlooked the peaceful courtyard. Our suite was spacious, luxurious and immaculately decorated and we loved having a separate bedroom and living room. When the staff found out that it was our anniversary they spoilt us with French champagne and chocolates! We really couldn't have asked for a more perfect first anniversary or chosen a more perfect place to visit.
We had our first ever Glamping experience last year on a visit to Cornwall, our favourite place in the UK. We stayed in the brand new, romantic 'Poppy' Yurt and it was such an incredible experience that I would recommend to anyone visiting Cornwall. The location was perfect, being only a ten minute drive to the beautiful Cornish beaches and gave us the perfect opportunity to enjoy nature and the beautiful environment whilst also being able to retreat to our perfect, comfortable and luxurious Yurt of an evening. We fell in love with our Yurt the minute we saw it! Being our first time 'glamping' and first time staying in a Yurt we were blown away with how we could relax in the beautiful countryside and enjoy nature whilst still having all the luxuries of staying in an apartment or cottage, but in such a unique and beautiful set up. Our yurt was luxurious, comfortable, spacious and beautifully decorated and furnished with rustic wooden furniture, gorgeous decorations and ornaments accompanied by lovely, romantic lighting. We felt at home immediately in the Poppy Yurt and absolutely loved snuggling up in the cosy Yurt after a big day in the great outdoors and we felt so cosy and warm whilst a storm raged outside! We fell in love with glamping and can’t wait to try more in the future together.
We fell in love with Morocco and with Riads during our stay in Marrakech at Riad Noga. We were in awe from the moment we stepped inside Riad Noga as every single one of our senses was delighted from the beautiful chirping of the birds who have made the Riads trees their home to the soft sounds of lapping water from the Riads enormous pool, to mouthwatering smells wafting from the Riads kitchen. It is safe to say that we fell in love Riad Noga from the very beginning. Again we were lucky enough to have the entire Riad to ourselves and loved spending our days relaxing by the pool, sunning ourselves on the rooftop terraces and relaxing amongst the fruit frees and flowers in the courtyard. Our stay was relaxing, peaceful and intimate. The Riad had 7 rooms which were all immaculately decorated and themed in a different colour. We stayed in the gorgeous Red Room, a room so romantic, comfortable and luxurious I never wanted to leave! Choosing to dine in the Riad was one of our best decisions of the trip as we were served the most tantalising three course meal. After being ushered to our private table located on the beautiful upper courtyard, overlooking the pool we were served a delicious, plentiful and beautifully presented meal. It set the standard very high for our expectations of Moroccan cuisine throughout our trip and we absolutely fell in love with the food.
We ventured to the Snowdonia region of Wales for my birthday long weekend with the intent to explore the region and climb Mt Snowdon and whilst we did all of that one of our favourite aspects of our trip was in fact our stay in the beautiful Beudy Mawr cottage on Ty Mawr Farm. We could not have picked a more cosy, relaxing and luxurious retreat for our stay in Wales and it is truly one of our favourite places we've stayed in all our travels. The cottage is a converted granary that is enormous with beautiful exposed wooden beams, an inglenook fireplace, woodburning stove, a large roll top bath and cosy, luxurious decor and furnishings. One of the most stunning feature of the bedroom is the French patio doors that opened up into our own private backyard with outdoor seating and the most breathtaking, uninterrupted views of farm lands, the Snowdonia mountain range and Mt Snowdon. Our favourite part of each day was snuggling up in front of the roaring fireplace each night after a big day of exploring and hiking which really was the perfect way to relax and reflect on all the adventures we’d had that day.
