Go on a Valentine’s Day trip and get away from it all

London, Rome, Deauville, Paris... unbeatable romantic-holiday destinations

It's settled! This year, your Valentine’s Day will be even more special. You will raise the traditional flower bouquet and small candlelit restaurant to a new level by going on a full weekend getaway for a most intimate celebration of your love. All that’s left is choosing the best destination for a guaranteed romantic escape!

Follow your bliss and hide away in Paris—the Capital of Love

Is there anything more idyllic than to whisper to each other “I love you” in the streets of the French capital on this Valentine's Day? Hand in hand, you enjoy these moments together in the shadow of the oldest tree in the city, in the René Viviani square, a short walk from Paris’ Notre Dame Cathedral.

Yet you can't wait for night to fall so you can unveil the surprise you have in store for your sweetheart: a candlelit aperitif, bundled up in a soft blanket as the two of you cruise along the Seine... and then, an unforgettable dinner in the unique intimacy of a private pontoon boat.

Romantic Marseille: a whim for two

Early morning strolls in the Old Port under the watchful eye of “la Bonne Mère,” as the locals call Notre-Dame de la Garde; walks along the Canebière, also known as “the capital of the sailors of the universe”; lunch for two consisting of fresh fish and panisses just out of the fryer...

With your arms around each other, along the Corniche Kennedy boulevard, you congratulate yourselves for having chosen Marseille, the “Phoenician city,” for a most intimate Valentine’s. You enjoy the vistas offered by the islands of Frioul, under the last rays of the Mediterranean sun... and you are determined to take full advantage of your last evening in Marseille by dining in a floating restaurant with a view of the Saint-Jean Fort.  

An iconic romantic weekend in Deauville...

A man and a woman... You walk hand in hand up the famous Art Deco Les Planches boardwalk, immortalised by Claude Lelouch. It can’t get any more romantic!  You and your sweetheart hum a love ballad as you stride along the waterfront and the ocean spray wets your hair. Your escapade couldn’t get off to a better start!

And the rest of your Valentine program promises many other pleasures: horseback riding on the beach, an aphrodisiac papaya and chilli sorbet at the famous "Martine Lambert" ice cream shop as well as candlelit fine dining at Belle Epoque restaurant...   

A beautiful, romantic and mysterious escapade in London

Nothing Hill fans, London is clearly your choice for celebrating this Valentine’s Day! Back from a lunch cruise on the Thames and holding a fragrant bouquet of roses that you picked up at the Columbia Road flower market, you decide to go for a bit of shopping at Harrods, in the heart of the chic Knightsbridge district.

Strolling hand in hand, you look for gifts to give each other at the height of this idyllic stay... the high point of which is but a few hours away—the sunset and the emerging city lights seen from the top of the London Eye. An ideal panorama to take the hand of your beloved and reaffirm your love...
 Goodness, what a weekend!  

Rome: the secrets of an eternal lovers’ city

A stone's throw from the Vatican City, you discover the most concealed gardens of Villa Doria Pamphili, located on the Gianicolo Hill. Its 180 hectares make up the largest park in Rome: the ideal place for the two of you to get lost in a maze of the most romantic vegetation... On the other side of the Tiber, lies the sumptuous Villa Borghese, where the Caravaggios and Rubens have already taken up your morning.
 
And your romantic getaway is just getting started!  You can’t wait for the two of you to ride the Vespa you’ve rented to explore Rome at your leisure... But you also make a stop to enjoy some fritti or a bruschetta and an aperitivo in a typical trattoria. Look into each other’s eyes as you enjoy your authentic antipasti!
