Romance is not just candle-lit dinners on panoramic terraces, though as the Italians would say, "non guasta" - it doesn't hurt to wine and dine under the Chianti stars. Romance can be found in those stolen moments walking around the Italian-styled garden, visiting the cantina from yesteryear or lazing in a private jacuzzi tub with the sun at your back.
