Forget about planning a baby shower, it’s time to celebrate becoming a mum-to-be in true style – with a babymoon in Europe! We’ve rounded up the top places to go, so let’s get planning your dreamy pregnancy getaway.
With its short flight time and elegant charm, a Paris city break is a chic place for your babymoon. Browse the endless baby boutiques down Boulevard Saint-Germain and grab brunch in a gorgeous French café such as Lou Lou’s. Pay a visit to Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa at the iconic Louvre Museum. In the evening, spend some quality time with your partner on a romantic river cruise down the River Seine. It’s the perfect way to see the City of Lights in all its glory. And you can’t visit Paris without a picture under the Eiffel Tower with the bump!
If you fancy discovering a city, then Barcelona is ideal for you. With its reasonably flat landscape and incredible range of historic sights, you can explore to your heart’s content. Step into Gaudi’s impressive Sagrada Familia or stroll through Parc Guell. Fancy a sweet treat? Head to DeLaCrem for a delicious ice cream or pastry. After all that walking, it’s a good idea to take a break and rest your feet. Why not find a spot on the sands of Barceloneta beach and enjoy a little sun? You can enjoy a picturesque sunset from here for a romantic moment with your loved ones.
Amalfi Coast, Italy
If you think you’d prefer a quiet, relaxing retreat for your babymoon, look no further than the Amalfi Coast. Unwind in an Italian hideaway along the glistening waters and sandy shores. Head to a beach club along Spiaggia Grande, Positano’s main beach, for a spot of sun and a bite to eat. You’ll be perfectly positioned for some people-watching and views of the colourful houses built vertically up the mountain. In the evenings, take a stroll through picturesque seaside towns and uncover traditional Italian restaurants serving fresh pizza and pasta. Be sure to wash it all down with a glass of Amalfi’s cool lemon granita – the ultimate refreshment! And if you’re in need of a little pampering, head to O’SPA for some pre-natal spa treatments.
Turn your babymoon into the gorgeous Greek getaway you’ve always wanted with a holiday to Santorini. This whitewashed isle boasts everything you need for a romantic escape, from stunning sunset spots to cosy tavernas. Browse beautiful boutiques in Oia and find a local souvenir for when the baby arrives – the perfect memory of your trip. Watch the world go by in Thira, Santorini’s capital, and admire breathtaking sunsets over the caldera. When it comes to food, there’s nowhere quite like Greece. So, make the most of the mouth-watering mezeand sensational seafood available on the island.
