Looking for the finest autumn colours
Isn’t it amazing how many hues of red, orange and yellow trees can come up with in autumn? For those who want to admire that incredible colourful splendour in Europe, Perthshire is the place to be. This stunning county in equally beautiful Scotland is known as Big Trees Country. And with reason. The hills are adorned with many magnificent trees that are reflected in numerous lakes and meandering streams. Discover the attractive landscapes near Loch Tummel and the Pass of Killiecrankie. Or climb Knock Hill, with an awarding breath-taking view of the Highlands at the end.
But the many colours of autumn can also be discovered elsewhere. Like on a road trip through the Green Mountains of the American State of Vermont. An absolute must: take the cable car to the top of Killington Peak, for a stunning view of the surrounding forests. Also be sure to visit historical cities such as Jeffersonville and Montpelier, the capital of Vermont, and discover museums, art galleries and regional delicacies.
Drive across the neighbouring state of New Hampshire, and you find yourself in the American State of Maine. This state holds another original destination for your honeymoon: Eagle Lake in Acadia National Park. Enjoy the fresh mountain air during the day and drift away in each other’s arms at night while the sunset provides a beguiling colour spectacle that is reflected in the water and in your diamond ring.
Maine and Vermont also border on Canada, a country filled with countless beautiful locations. But we’ve singled out Emerald Lake, as green as the emeralds we sell and surrounded by the stunning Rocky Mountains in Yoho National Park. ‘Yoho’ expresses amazement in the Cree language, the largest indigenous population of Canada, and you can take our word for it: you too will utter that phrase. Canoeing, mountain hiking, spotting wild animals…how is that for a honeymoon?
Or do you prefer a tropical island? Why not three at once?
You can enjoy a tropical beach holiday in autumn, without being involuntarily treated to hurricane weather. Head for the ABC-islands: Aruba, Bonaire and Curaçao. These islands are Dutch territory, situated off the coast of Venezuela, in the Caribbean Sea.
Each of the islands has its own personality and is definitely worth a visit. Aruba amazes you with beautiful white beaches, but it’s also great for windsurfing and enjoying an evening out. Life on Bonaire is somewhat more tranquil. Go for a dive to discover the surrounding marine nature park, with flamingos above and sea turtles beneath the water surface.
And then we have Curaçao, with its vibrant city life. But also with the Curaçao Sea Aquarium. You can observe sharks, turtles, rays, etc. from up close. It’s certainly a must because it is one of the largest aquariums in the Caribbean. And don’t forget to visit some of the many caves along the coast line. Just be careful that your gold diamond ring doesn’t end up in the azure blue water!
If you live in Europe, fancy pristine white beaches closer to home? A definite recommendation is the beach of Zlatni Rat (Golden Horn), on the island of Brač, Croatia. The beach is oblong and narrow in shape and you can walk into the sea for some five hundred metres. The autumn there is more like an Indian Summer, with pleasant temperatures.
An extra tip for Croatia during autumn: visit the beautiful city of Dubrovnik, along the Adriatic coast. It’s still warm but the throng of tourists has left the city.
Or romance in a beautiful city after all? Why not!
And which city could be more romantic than Paris? Yes, we know, not very original. But for many people, the French city of lights is still the dream destination for a honeymoon. And as a bonus: in autumn there are not that many tourists in the city and the prices reflect this.
Declare your love to your partner in the Temple de L’ Amour, on a small island in a river surrounded by the gardens of Versailles. Or walk over the bridge to the beautiful Rococo-style building, or get there by row boat with your loved one. This scenery begs for a surprise diamond ring … which you can, by the way, come and see in our Parisian showroom (by appointment).
Hop on a scooter and explore the city afterwards, sip iced tea in the garden of the Musée de la Vie Romantique (near Montmartre) in the afternoon, go for a tête-à-tête in a Parisian bistro or a picknick with wine and French cheese, walk along the Seine after sunset, admire the lit Eiffel Tower, listen to some live blues at café Le Caveau des Oubliettes or get lost in the Parisian night. The romantic options are endless.
Or do you prefer the Paris of the United States, where live music can be heard on every street corner? You’ve probably already guessed it: New Orleans in the Southern American State of Louisiana. This city, founded by the French, has a relaxed and casual atmosphere, and you can enjoy fine food (the beignets are a delight not to be missed) and drinks.
A must is the French Quarter, the most interesting and oldest borough of New Orleans. The heart of the nightlife, filled with music and people having a good time. Curl up in each other’s arms during a concert in Fritzel’s European Jazz Club.
Another romantic European tip for autumn: Bruges, Belgium. One of the most beautiful European cities to visit in autumn when the Medieval buildings in the city are covered with crimson and gold climbing plants reflected in the many canals which run through the city.
And we finish with a lovely glass of wine!
A romantic tour along some great locations for a honeymoon in autumn has to end with a glass of excellent wine … Which immediately adds a final, fantastic honeymoon location to the list: the Californian vineyards.
This is a top destination, especially in autumn because the large masses of tourists have left by then. The famous Napa Valley and Sonoma region does not only breathe romance, it also lets you taste excellent, regional wines made from grape varieties like cabernet sauvignon, merlot, pinot noir and chardonnay. Taste them on the spot or consume them during a gastronomic meal in one of the many top restaurants like La Toque, awarded with a Michelin star.
The region has over nine hundred wineries so there is plenty to discover. The wine houses also harvest plenty of grapes in autumn – which makes for a lovely sight. From, why not, a hot-air balloon, while you’re overlooking the many vineyards in the autumn sun.
Perhaps the perfect moment to bring out your surprise – the diamond ring you have been wanting to gift for a long time.
