Escape the credit crunch blues with a super chic yet good value honeymoon
The Chief Bridesmaid is chilling in Spain for a few days and has found the perfect chic but cheap honeymoon venue on the Costa de la Luz. Huerta Las Terrazas is the Café del Mar of bed and breakfasts. “Bed and Breakfast” whilst strictly true, seems like a bit of a poor description for this boutique hideaway. Perched on the hillside, the rolling, stunning gardens have a sea view and in the distance you can see the lights of Morocco. The Moorish influenced rooms are an absolute joy to sleep in - beautifully decorated with sprigs of lavender left on your pillow. Very romantic and an ideal place to relax after your wedding and enjoy a fabulous honeymoon.
The Chief Bridesmaid and her “best man” have had a great couple of nights cuddling up under the Romeo and Juliet mosquito net over the bed - it’s been like a second honeymoon! (Not sure if the mosquito net is strictly necessary, but it feels very romantic and bridal!)
Indeed, some honeymooners who got married on Sunday arrived two days ago and the hosts Al and Amy laid out rose petals over their honeymoon bed!
But don’t worry, this isn’t the sort of venue where every other person is on honeymoon - this sort of thing makes my flesh crawl - it’s like going to a restaurant on valentines’ day and having to compete in being the most in love! There’s been a mix of trendy media types, kite surfing enthusiasts with young families and couples looking for a bit of R&R. Tarifa, the kite surfing capital of the world is a ten minute car ride away, so it feels like an upmarket Ibiza meets Cornwall meets Rip Curl catalogue.
At night time, the garden and house is lit with beautiful fairy lights and twinkling candles, accompanied by Ibiza chill out tunes. The chief bridesmaid is sitting back writing this having raided the honesty bar laying on a sun lounger next to a pretty pool in the garden. This is truly bliss. What more could you need for your honeymoon...and it won't break your budget either...
The Chief Bridesmaid xoxo
