Ah, Italy. The country of love. Or should I say, amore, hmmmmm? Yes, Italy's the place to be this Valentine's Day – a country of incredible culture, fabulous history and, most important, great wine.
For those of you looking for a slice of luxury in the country, L'Albereta in Lombardy are offering a new programme for the whole of February from €490 per person – yes, their prices are in foreign, but then that's the whole point of experiencing different cultures. The programme, called L'Amour Fou (trans: Crazy Love), guarantees romance.
Included in the price is a spa programme, a personalised floral gift crafted by the hotel's own flower designer – a genuine job – and best of all, personalised pillow cases with the couple's initials! There's also a lot more offered with this package.
However, the main downside is that this is a one night stay – to stay a second night will set each person back another €260. Ooft! They say you can't put a price on luxury, but L'Albereta have. Your best bet is to see their full programme and see for yourself here - www.albereta.it.
