Holidaying with the one you love, doesn’t have to be a prohibitively expensive and stilted affair including a 5 star spa resort, champagne breakfast and wellness.
Escape the hectic life
Romance will often come to life, when surrounded by natural beauty, simplicity and a little time reserved, just for the two of you. Ærø may only be removed, from the mainland, by a one-hour ferry journey, but in spirit and laid-back otherness, it is light years away from the everyday hectic life.
Seek out one of the captivating places of accommodation, be it a cosy country inn, a modern stylish hotel or one of the many ambient B&B’s, and for a few days, rekindle the secrets of perhaps forgotten romance, recharge your batteries, let yourself be mesmerized by the truly dark night sky that allows you to bask in the light from the expanse, lit up by the eternity of twinkling stars.
The wedding island
It is no coincidence that Ærø is host to several thousand weddings between loved-up couples from all over the world, each year. Romance needs no incentive to blossom on Ærø.
The island is like a cornucopia of beauty: white sandy beaches, flanked by tiny colourful beach huts and stretching for miles, are ideal for a romantic stroll, just the two of you. All it takes then is a good bottle of wine, a pinch of the unique ambience an evening on this island provides and a glance at the calm sea, and romance will prevail.
Romance will blossom
Ærøskøbing is, by many considered, the capital of romance on Ærø. The exquisitely maintained houses and quaint little shops lie nestled along cobbled streets and alleys.
In Søndergade, you will find the atmospheric wedding café Lou Lou’s med chandeliers, lace and old-fashioned steam radio: an adorable hide-away for a cup of hot chocolate and an undisturbed moment of eye-gazing.
