As Valentine's Day draws near, it's time to show our loved ones just how much they mean to us. Better yet, if you're thinking of popping the ultimate question, then now is the perfect time! You've bought the ring, you've practiced your speech and now, all you have to figure out is where to ask. And while you could opt for a familiar place, there's something irresistibly romantic about being whisked away and having your soul mate get down on one knee. So, whether it's a cottage up north, or an isolated beach in an exotic destination, this is a moment you'll never forget.

To make things a little easier for you, we've delved into the myriad of properties to source romantic destinations across the globe that have a unique twist to make the proposal one for the books!
