Romance? With Saga it's not just for Valentine's Day

Love is in the air on many of Saga’s holidays across the globe from Aphrodite’s island of Cyprus to the romantic backwaters of Kerala in south-west India and Italy’s sparkling lakeside resorts and romantic cities. Here’s just a sample of the romantic locations:


Novelist D H Lawrence described Lake Garda as "the most beautiful place on earth" and on Saga is offering a new holiday at the elegant four-star Parc Hotel Gritti - an ideal location for discovering the seductive charm of Lake Garda, as well as the romantic cities of Venice and Verona.

Take optional excursions to spend a day in Venice, where Casanova stole so many women’s hearts, and tour Verona, the setting for Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet.

Parc Hotel Gritti: Seven nights from £729 on a half-board basis departing London Gatwick from April to June and August to October 2015.  Price includes return flights, transfers, porterage and a Saga representative.


Cyprus is the birthplace of Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of beauty and love. Saga guests can stay at the mountain-top Rodon Hotel and the beachside Elias Beach Hotel in Limassol on a two-centre holiday to embrace the island's beauty.

Roses are an enduring symbol of love and the Botanic Cyprus holiday includes a nature trail through vineyards, orchards and rose gardens. Agros is famous for its scented roses and guests can view the production of aromatic rose water, rose oil, cosmetics and traditional rose sweet preserve.

Botanical Cyprus: 14 nights from £1,499, 7 nights from £1049 with half board accommodation at the Rodon Hotel and full board at Elias Beach Hotel. Price also includes return flights and transfers, porterage at hotels, seven excursions and travel insurance. Departure dates on application.


Explore the enchanting backwaters, wildlife-rich forests and hillside tea plantations of Kerala before relaxing on the Malabar coast. Stay in a Spice Route houseboat before cruising to Vembanad Lake at the heart of the Keralan backwaters, the first choice for local honeymooners. Marvel at south-west India’s lush landscape, known as God’s Own Country before relaxing at the dreamy palm-fringed Marari Beach resort.

Soul of Kerala: 12 nights (includes one aboard aircraft) from £2199 departing London Gatwick, Birmingham, Glasgow and Manchester (supplement may apply to Regional Airports). Departures available between October 2015 - March 2016..
