Sparked by the ideals of the French Revolution, Romanticism flourished across the European continent in the 18th century. This movement espoused the importance of inner passions that drive human actions and revolutionized art, music, and architecture. How fitting that you are choosing to spend an amorous interlude with your beloved in Europe, the birthplace of Romanticism. Couples find enchanting trysts on slopes filled with evergreen forests, riverbanks, or sunny vineyards. On the other hand, an adventurous pair can rejoice in newfound excitement in stark landscapes of white ice or lava fields. It is not too farfetched that soulmates meet on serendipitous cobbled streets and iconic monuments of European capitals like Paris and London. Europe’s storied towns and cities teem with enchanting tales of newfound love and rekindled romance. If you’re planning a romantic weekend getaway with your partner soon, read about the most romantic Airbnbs for couples in Europe.

We handpicked these listings carefully, considering (wherever possible) Superhost status, recent guest reviews, location, accommodation type, prices, availability of dates, decor, and access to romantic amenities and activities. The image galleries get refreshed with the latest updates regularly. They were last updated on May 28, 2024.
