Make Romance in Maison 808
Live inside the walls of your own European fantasy at Maison 808, located at 808 North Rexford Road in Beverly Hills. Outside, the home has class and style, with a majestic stone drive and gardens. Inside, romance rules with a sweeping grand staircase sporting major Titanic vibes, and a home theater with two tiers of seating to set the perfect stage for snuggling. Rich marble floors set the mood, with intricate stonework, antique French crystal chandeliers and sparkling leaded-glass windows and skylights. Stroll out back to a sweet stone pergola, a mosaic-tiled pool, a sunken tennis court and two detached guest homes. Built in 1990 and stretching out over 26,800 square feet, this property is priced at over $58 million—the highest price ever for a residential property in the coveted Beverly Hills Flats.

Love Found in Los Feliz
This three-bedroom, four-bath Los Feliz home with clean lines and plenty of fresh open space was recently purchased by L.A. Dodgers' executive Michael Wandell. Tucked into the Los Angeles hills with white walls and terracotta roofing, this Mediterranean-inspired space feels like a full-time honeymoon spot. In the great room, curl up by the fireplace beneath a glamorous chandelier and wide wood beam ceilings, or wander outside to sit beneath the stars in the poolside pergola with climbing grapevines. Before diving into bed, take in the views of the city from your own private balcony.

Cuddle Up in Colorado
If romance for you looks like cuddling up in ski town, head on over to Vail Valley's hidden mod mountain mansion, located at 745 Forest Road. This stone and slate home with high ceilings and luxe light offers two master suites, four bedrooms and five bathrooms, just steps from the ski slopes with plenty of outdoor living space. Get close to that special someone by the crackling outdoor fire pit, or dip into the decadent Jacuzzi tub with convenient privacy walls. Take in the views of nearby burbling Gore Creek in the adjoining living and dining area with floor-to-ceiling glass doors, and on the upper floor, retractable walls fuse indoor/outdoor living space.
