Castiglioncello del Trinoro, home to Monteverdi, is midway between Rome and Florence in the heart of Tuscany. The views alone are enough to make any honeymoon completely unforgettable! “Any view from this mountaintop retreat reveals a way of life that has remained largely unchanged for centuries. Sheep grazing on the hillsides provide the milk for pecorino cheese, while local vineyards produce the grapes that will become the finest wines in the world.”
Day trips are an option for any couple looking to explore the surrounding area, as Florence and Rome are accessible by catching the train from nearby Chiusi. “Whether you choose to stay on the mountaintop and hike the trails surrounding the village, or sit on the veranda and admire the vastness of the Val d’Orcia, or drive to a nearby village for shopping, art and history, or make an excursion to one of the greatest cities in the world, it is all possible during a stay at Monteverdi.”
Easy to see why this hotel has been a favorite for our honeymoon couples!

I had the absolute pleasure of staying at Amanzoe recently, a resort set in Porto Heli Greece. It is about a 2 1/2 hour drive from Athens on the mainland of Greece, set on the coast. The resort is on a hillside with stunning views, surrounded by olive trees and vineyards. Then just a 10 minute drive to the sea is a gorgeous beach club.
I loved this area of Greece- definitely not touristy, and relatively unknown by Americans. We went wine tasting at a nearby small family vineyard, enjoyed lots of sun at the beach club, enjoyed a cocktail at the new Nikki Beach Porto Heli, and took a water taxi to the island of Spetses. This island is so charming, with small boutiques and great restaurants on the water. I would definitely recommend a visit!
Amanzoe has the most stunning architecture, very much inspired by the Greek culture. Lots of water features, very high ceilings, and a lot of columns. Very grand! And the villas. WOW!!! Every Pavillion is incredibly spacious with a private pool and such beautiful decor. It was tough to leave!
Also making it tough to leave- the service! Everyone was so incredibly friendly and anxious to help. And such great restaurants! They took local ingredients to a whole new level with listing the name of the local farmers who they purchase the ingredients from! And you could tell- everything was so incredibly fresh and delicious.
Isn’t Amanzoe incredible? I can’t recommend it enough! Even better- clients of Ever After Honeymoons receive complimentary breakfast daily, lunch one day, an upgrade whenever available, and extra special VIP service. Email me to learn more about this beautiful resort!

Secret Bay is a luxury resort that is situated on a cliff-top overlooking the Caribbean Sea that boasts two beaches, the magical Cario River, a spectacular sea cave and two micro-climates. This would be the perfect location for any couple looking for a honeymoon with great adventure, food, scenery and culture all mixed into one. “Secret Bay is located on the northwest coast of the beautiful island of Dominica in the West Indies. The secluded villa complex is just a 10-minute drive to the quaint town of Portsmouth and about an hour’s drive to the capital Roseau. The beautiful expanse of Prince Rupert Bay – one of the longest, usually deserted, white-sand beaches on the island – is less than a ten-minute kayak ride away. Other nearby sites include: the well-preserved Fort Shirley and Cabrits National Park, magical Indian River and the Northern Forest Reserve.”
“Situated on a breathtaking cliff top, Secret Bay has access to two swimming beaches: Tibay Beach and the soft white-sand beach of Secret Beach (originally named Anse Quarre) – with its natural rock-formed arch, hidden sea-cliff cave and rich marine life. The property is bordered by the Cario River, which flows down from Morne Diablotins.”
