Coastal towns with nearby mountainous villages are the perfect backdrop for a romantic getaway! Wherever you choose to visit with your favorite person, you will surely enjoy it, and here are a few suggestions that can make your love weekend even more beautiful.
A Romantic Walk by the Sea
When I first visited Northwestern Istria with my husband, our favorite activity was walking along the waterfront in the late afternoon, when the sky displayed all the shades of orange. Such moments are the ones we always remember, ones which remind us of the wonderful destinations we’ve visited together. If you love seeing hanging boats against a backdrop of dusk, visit Savudrija. For long walks by the sea, be sure to visit Novigrad. In Umag, you can admire the endless sea and the ships melting into the horizon. A romantic atmosphere is guaranteed.
A Chocolate Weekend for Sweet Memories
In Brtonigla, during the weekend after Valentine’s Day – February 16th and 17th, the Choco and Wine Fest is to be held. It is a true example of “opposites” attracting. Surprise your better half and do not even announce where you are going, which will make this adventure even more interesting!
Wellness for Two
For the true hedonists that happen to be in love, the hotels of Northwestern Istria offer a great number of wellness packages. The one I would recommend is the Wellness Couple Pampering at the Aminess Maestral Hotel in Novigrad. There are a number of other places at this destination that are topnotch wellness centers, whose lovely atmosphere will make your romantic weekend a truly special one.
A Seafood Dinner
If you love seafood (my husband and I absolutely adore it!), you will surely enjoy the rich offer of the Novigrad and Umag restaurants. The shellfish season is now in full swing and it’s the right time to try some great delicacies made with Jacob’s scallops or mussels. Our love is so much greater on a full belly of good food!
Kisses with a View
For lovers in search of seclusion and privacy, the hilly towns like Motovun and Grožnjan, from which one can take in some wonderful panoramas, are great places to enjoy a good cup of coffee together, an enchanting view – and be completely devoted to each other!
