Nature therapy can help us celebrate love!

There are many benefits to celebrating Valentine's Day in nature. First, it can help you feel closer to your partner. If you're used to being indoors all the time, being out in nature can help you feel more connected to your surroundings and each other. Second, it can be very romantic. There's something about being in nature that can make even the most simple gestures feel sentimental and special. Third, it's good for your health! Research has shown that nature therapy can help improve moods, reduce stress levels, and increase self-esteem. It can also help with anxiety, depression, and other mental health disorders. So why not celebrate your love this Valentine's Day by spending some time outdoors?

Here’s our top five Valentine’s getaways in nature, conveniently compiled by category.

Romantic wellness spots 

1. Menno’s hot tub paradise

Host Menno has a love for life and for nature. He’s hand-built some impressive kota’s (which are Finnish wooden cabins), but also provides tipis and yurts for his guests. The best part: you can build a romantic campfire or take a dip in the hottub with your partner or friends. The wellness facilities and cabins are extra cosy in the winter and autumn months, which makes this the perfect spot to celebrate Valentine’s Day.

2. Ruben’s eco domain

You can find another option for some wellness in nature at Ruben’s campspace in Belgium. Health and respect for nature play a central role here. Within its beautiful surroundings people are encouraged to live ecologically. Ruben asks his guests to eat vegan or vegetarian during their stay, but also to refrain from drinking alcohol. On top of that the area is a no-smoking zone. Sounds daunting? It really isn’t! This space is all about respecting nature and trying out something new. We promise you’ll l feel refreshed after your visit, because we certainly did! You could even see your visit as a detox challenge that your share with your partner. After all, we do our best bonding when taking on challenges as a team!

Adventurous couples can bring their own tent, but there are also lovely shepherds’ huts, a tipi tent and an old caravan to choose between. The space is surrounded by trees, which makes you feel as if you’re in a fairy world in the forest. Not convinced yet? The sauna and hot tub are located under the trees as well, which makes for a magical experience. Run to Ruben’s booking page to reserve your spot!

Cosy cabins 

3. Romantic refurbished tiny house

Angelique has remodeled an old shed into a cute and cosy tiny house. Since sustainability is important to her, she built it with old materials she had laying around, along with any other secondhand items she could get her hands on. Refurbishing the materials and the shed this way has resulted in an incredibly personal and unique tiny house. It oozes a rustic atmosphere and cosy vibes. Take your loved one on a trip to this beautiful spot to unwind and reconnect.

Due to the fact the house is located in the province of Drenthe, which is rich in historic villages and hiking or cycling routes, you’ll have lots to discover in the area. If that isn’t enough for you, the German border is close by, so you can visit some quaint German villages too.
