Love it or hate it, Valentine’s Day has arrived, and you know the consequences if you don’t pull out all the stops.

Whether you’re looking for something a little bit kinky (sex toys delivered to your door anybody?) or you want to keep it classic with moonlit walks and couples’ massages, we’ve rounded up the best budget stays with that little something extra. Forget those excuses fellas – roses and Champagne will be just a room service call away. And for all the ladies out there, you can kick last year’s corner shop chocolates to the curb. This year it’s going to be big.

Palazzo Seneca, Italy:

Be treated like royalty in this romantic16th-century castle nestled in the lush valley of Norcia in Umbria. This is the land of luxury food and magical vistas. In the hills behind the hotel, pigs go hunting for the most expensive truffles in the world and olive groves dot the cliffs, which are showered in golden light as the sun sets. Palazzo Seneca,with its hand-carved four-poster beds, private rose-covered balconies and sweeping verandas, will bring out the Casanova in you, so be prepared for things to get soppy. All this will be helped along by the three-course candlelit dinner at the award-winning restaurant, which is included in the Valentine’s Package. Also included is a treatment for two in the hotel’s Turkish baths. The spa also has a hydro-massage whirlpool and aromatherapy rooms. All sounding a bit much? Let’s not forget the ‘special surprise’ the owners promise those on a romantic getaway... to be revealed upon arrival. Norcia is a gastronomic heaven with some of the best food Italy has to offer, so market-strolling beneath the craggy vine-covered cliffs will guarantee some tasty treats. You can also learn to make pasta by hand with the restaurant’s head chef, or you can opt to go on a truffle-hunting trip with sniffer pigs who know their gourmet from their goulash. Double rooms start at £124 a night. The Valentine’s Package costs £274 per person for two nights. Find out more here.
