Going on vacation in the beautiful Mediterranean city of Barcelona entails choosing from an endless array of accommodations. There are hotels, motels, inns, and hostels. But if you are looking for a place to get away from it all with that special someone, a romantic bed and breakfast is the place for you.
A romantic bed and breakfast is ideal for honeymooners in need of relaxation after the hustle and bustle of planning and orchestrating a wedding. Relationships often need spice and excitement, and a romantic getaway frequently does the trick. A romantic bed and breakfast is a good place for a weekend tryst with your lover and is guaranteed to set an atmosphere of love and romance.
It’s Not the Hilton
Romantic bed and breakfasts are built after old-fashioned boarding houses. The hosts are usually the owners themselves, and they also live in the establishment to serve the guests. Guests stay in private rooms. Meals are communal. This, however, is still a relatively comfortable setup as most bed and breakfasts can accommodate no more than 15 guests at any given time.
It’s Not Called Bed and Breakfast for Nothing
As the name suggests, romantic bed and breakfasts obviously provide bed space and breakfast. Because romantic bed and breakfasts are converted houses, bathrooms are often shared. However, bigger suites often come with en suite bathrooms so you are guaranteed privacy.
Scrumptious breakfasts are served family style. Depending on the host, breakfast may consist of full meals that include eggs, meat, pancakes, toast, and beverages. On the other hand, some romantic bed and breakfasts only provide light continental breakfasts consisting of fruit and doughnuts. Breakfast is often included in the rate offered by romantic bed and breakfasts.
