Romantic vacations should focus on the couple spending time together, not a lot of distracting activities. Romantic hotels in the country offer up gorgeous views, gourmet foods, and a low-key experience to help a couple connect. During the warmer months, the hotels offer lush landscapes upon which you can stroll hand in hand. During the winter, seek warmth in a jacuzzi or in a large bed situated near a fireplace and a picture window.
