Planning a babymoon? Five romantic European hotels to escape to before your little one arrives

Trine Jensen-Burke

Yes, please.

Babymoons are becoming a popular trend for expectant parents – and it is easy to see why.

A few days away, where you can lower your shoulders, unwind and just spend some time together before the craziness of welcoming a(nother) baby to the family – it is a break many like the sound of.

Many opt to schedule in a babymoon somewhere in the second trimester of pregnancy, when, in general, most women feel a little bit better after those first couple of months of morning sickness and tiredness have gone. Most airlines are also OK with travels before the third trimester sets in.

Luckily, many amazing resorts in Europe now arrange fab babymoon packages, tailored to suit expectant couples, and ensuring a gorgeous, romantic experience for you both.

Right now – we are loving the sound of these ones:

1. St. Nicolas Bay Resort Hotel & Villas, Crete, Greece

You will feel yourself become calmer the minute you step foot into the stunning St. Nicolas Bay Resort Hotel & Villas, located just outside the beautiful fishing village of Agios Nikolaos on the Greel island of Crete. The hotel is only open summer season (from April onwards), and there are all of sorts of gorgeous treatments on offer for mums-to-be.
