Love is in the air; and there are few better ways to sweep the love of your life off their feet than by whisking them away on a private aircraft charter.

Whether for Valentine’s Day or any time of the year, it’s always a good idea to escape from it all and spend some quality time together. We’ve handpicked some of the top getaways of 2018 that are perfect for a romantic break and easily reached by private jet or helicopter.

Jet off to one of the world’s most iconic romance capitals; or, if a city break isn’t quite your idea of starry-eyed seclusion, we’ve also included a few remote English gems reachable by helicopter.


Top Destinations for a Romantic Getaway


Paris, France



Wander through the cobbled backstreets of Montmartre, steal a kiss beneath the street lamps along the banks of the Seine, and be serenaded with songs of Piaf in the art nouveau opulence of Maxims De Paris – once frequented by one of history’s most famous romantic couples, the Duke of Windsor and Wallis Simpson.

A stone’s throw from Maxim’s, enjoy a nightcap in the sumptuous surroundings of the Les Ambassedeurs bar at the recently renovated Hôtel de Crillon.

Touch down in the City of Lights in a private jet from £6,840*



Valentine's Day, Rome, Romantic, private jet, private jet to Rome, Valentine's Trip



Throw yourself into the retro-romance of a Roman Holiday in the spirit of Hollywood icons Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck. Hire a scooter, don a headscarf, and explore the city’s hidden gems and iconic landmarks.

Or, if you prefer to leave the bustle of the city behind, escape to the hillsides of nearby Tivoli and lose yourselves in the giardini della meraviglie of the magnificent Villa d’Este, followed by dinner with a view of the Eternal City at acclaimed restaurant La Pergola, high in the hills of Monte Mario.

Finally, take a private tour of Princess Isabelle’s Apartment at the Colonna Palace, where – by no coincidence – there sits a double sofa the Italians call ‘confidenza’ (intimacy).

Burgh Island


Burgh IslandDevon

Awarded Editor’s Choice by The Good Hotel Guide for ‘most romantic hotel’ of 2018, it’s hard not to fall in love with the halcyon charm of Burgh Island. Its unique location and setting is the ultimate romantic retreat; reachable only by helicopter or sea tractor on its own private island, this secluded art deco jewel is the perfect place for a remote rendezvous.

If you are too smitten to leave your 1930s suite (former resident Noel Coward arrived for a weekend and stayed for three weeks), simply order room service on your Bakelite telephone and lounge like Garbo on your private balcony as the sun sets over the sea. Alternatively, try your hand at croquet, play tennis on the lawns, and take in the sea air at the Mermaid pool.

Land just a few steps away from your suite by helicopter on the hotel’s dedicated helipad: £7,000*



Ackergill Tower


Ackergill Tower, Highlands

Ackergill Tower welcomes lovers like no other venue can, with couples arriving by helicopter landing on the hotel’s heart-shaped lawn.

Nestled on a rugged shoreline within a 3,000-acre Highland estate, the majestic Ackergill Tower is considered one of the remotest and most romantic escapes in the British Isles.

Home to the 14th century legend of the ‘Beauty of Braemore’ (reminiscent of the story ‘Rapunzel’), the spellbinding 600-year-old tower is certainly something out of a fairy tale.

Savor the staggeringly beautiful ocean views over breakfast with the crash of the waves and the distant skirl of bagpipes.

Charter a helicopter from £5,800* (Inverness – Ackergill Tower); or arrive by private jet at Wick Airport, where a private vehicle will collect you directly from the runway: £9,500* (London – Wick).



Ellenborough Park


Ellenborough Park, Cotswolds

Greeted by the golden glow of Cotswold stone, this breathtaking 15th century manor house is the quintessential countryside retreat.

Indulge yourselves in the Indian spa and heated outdoor pool, or borrow some Dubarrys from your hosts and spend an afternoon exploring the Cotswold countryside’s rural charm.

Arrive by helicopter in the hotel’s private heli-field, where your own dedicated private vehicle awaits to drop you at the door: fr. £6,000*



Luton Hoo


Luton Hoo, London

Once the seat of the 3rd Earl of Bute, Prime Minister to George III, this statuesque former stately home dates from the late 18th century.

Descend hand in hand down the grand marble staircase that encircles Bergonzoli’s sculpture ‘The Love of Angels’, take a twilight stroll in the Capability Brown landscaped gardens and dine beneath the twinkling chandeliers of the Wernher Restaurant (famously inspired by the Palais de Versailles).

A helicopter flight, starting from fr. £2,600*, will alight on the lawns of this magnificent building, mere footsteps away from your accommodation.
