The newly-launched OFF GRID HIDEAWAYS offers a handpicked collection of remote properties perfect for a Valentine’s getaway. Be it country, mountain or sea, these stylish boltholes are tucked away in beautiful, isolated locations across the world. So remote, there’s not a red rose or objectional teddy bear in sight – perfect for ardent romantics and cynical sceptics alike.
If you’re looking to whisk your Valentine away on a real romantic adventure, OFF GRID HIDEAWAY’s weather-beaten fisherman’s cottage on the remote Norwegian island of Vega is just the ticket. Growing from the rockbed, this Vega Island hideaway blends seamlessly into its seascape surroundings: the UNESCO-protected Vegaøyan. This is the land of hardy fisherfolk, farmers and hunter-gatherers – so ditch the sparkly shoes for a trusty pair of wellies and make for the nearby mountain, paddle a canoe along the uninhabited coastline or visit Eider Duck Farm for some matching mittens (after all, couples that dress together; stay together, no?!)
If you’re struggling to embrace your inner Viking…on the edge of the Arctic Circle…in February, we suggest hunkering down in your hideaway. Catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights from this, your very own private cabin, curl up with a good book or spend your evening sparring over the backgammon board with a nice bottle of red.
If your Valentine is pining for sunnier climes, OFF GRID HIDEAWAY’s Alentejo riverbank refuge in Comporta, Portugal will clinch it. Against a spectacular backdrop of rice paddies, sand dunes and fishing wharves, this twinset of rustic wooden cabins near boho-chic Comporta is a truly romantic hideaway. Kayak among Sado Estuary’s unique breeding colony of bottlenose dolphins, canter through the surf on beautiful Lusitano horses or spend your days savouring the local food and wine, think seafood platters in top beach restaurant‚ Bar Dos Pescadores, delicious local cuisine at former rice-husking factory turned restaurant, Museu do Arroz and afternoons strolling through vineyards.
So whether or not you dodge Cupid’s arrow this February, OFF GRID HIDEAWAYS has the perfect remote and inspiring getaway, tucked away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
