A Romantic Weekend in France

Are you simply sick of the British weather? With Autumn well and truly on its way, now could be the perfect time to head off through the tunnel and escape to a French fantasy land. France is known the world over as one of the most romantic countries in the world. With so many romantic locations, it’s hard to know where to begin. But we think this quick guide is a good start!

France has it all, from cute picturesque villages with characteristic cafes to some of the most breath-taking views in Europe. If you’re planning on being swept off your feet, what better destination could there possibly be? We’ve included our top 5 French fancies below to help you decide which is best suited to your needs.

 

Annecy

So you think Venice is THE place to be for a romantic getaway? Think again! Annecy is often referred to as France’s very own little Venice thanks to its cobbled streets, stunning lake views and glorious local markets! There are tonnes of fantastic eateries in romantic settings, making it the ideal destination for dinner dates.

Paris

You knew it was coming. It may sound like the ultimate cliché but Paris has truly earned its romantic reputation as the “City of Love”. With stunning architecture, sublime food and wondrous walk ways along the Sienne, all that’s left to do is book your accommodation. We recommend renting an apartment for a truly authentic Parisian adventure.

Loire Valley

Not so much for the city life? No matter, because Loire Valley is just a little way south of the capital! With rolling hills galore, villages worthy of the hidden gem title and castles reminiscent of fairy tales; the Valley is the perfect option for some quiet time with your special someone!

Biarritz

A coastal retreat if ever there was one! This impressive seaside destination not only holds the buzz you would expect from a city, it also boasts views of the Spanish coast. With an abundance of shops and restaurants Biarritz is a sailor’s setting to be bewildered by!

Chamonix

What is more romantic than snuggling up in front of an open log fire? Not much, which is why Chamonix is the perfect cooler setting sure to warm your hearts. Head out for the day skiing then enjoy some mulled wine before bed, waking up to immaculate unspoiled views of the mesmerising Alps every morning!
