A European honeymoon has many advantages including stunning locations, depth of culture and cuisine as well as short flight times so you can spend more time on holiday and less time travelling. Europe is also home to some of the most romantic settings on earth including the Italian lakes, the coast of Croatia and the Greek islands.
The most popular time of year for UK weddings is during the summer months of June to September which is also when the beaches of Europe are at their warmest thus making them an ideal destination for those seeking sun soaked relaxation after the big day.

Striking simplicity is how one would describe this resort where its string of 45 suites and villas melt indistinctly into the little medieval village of Megalohori. All suites and villas come with stone floors and unique silk screen paintings and the five pool suites with their fresh minimal design inspired by the simple island lodges, but all offering barefoot chic living you’ll be reluctant to leave.
Daios Cove, Crete
Daios Cove Luxury Resort and Villas, Crete, situated on a hillside overlooking its private tranquil bay and sandy beach, evokes the intimate charm of the traditional villages found throughout the Greek isles, its accommodation staggered on the hillside to give them all amazing sea views.

However, many of its neighbours also offer a wealth of experiences, such as the timeless and exotic country of Oman with its ancient archaeological sites, the sophisticated island archipelago of Bahrain which can be found dotted along the glittering waters of the Arabian Gulf, and the stunning beaches, breathtaking desert and distinctive architecture of Qatar.
