Do you and your loved one feel like going somewhere else? But where to go for Valentine's Day? Here are some ideas for an unforgettable Valentine's Day.
Where to go for Valentine's Day to find the sun
The sun is not only good for our morale, it also acts on our libido! So a sunny getaway is just what you need for Valentine's Day
In mid-February, the weather in southern Europe is much milder than in France. We recommend Greece where prices are as mild as temperatures... Head for the Cyclades and the island of Santorini. Between its beautiful beaches, its typical villages and its delicious gastronomy, Santorini is as romantic as one could wish. Don't miss the mythical sunsets, an ultra romantic moment guaranteed!
If you are more tempted by the charms of the Orient, Marrakech should satisfy you. Whether you dream of a riad or a comfortable hotel room, prices in Marrakech remain affordable. In terms of gastronomy, you can enjoy fragrant tagines and spicy dishes whose often aphrodisiac flavors should pleasantly spice up your stay for two. Add to that a hammam with traditional scrub and massage and you will be in nirvana.
Still in the Mediterranean, Sardinia is a sunny island offering really pleasant temperatures in winter. Instead of staying in Cagliari, we recommend you to go and stay in Bosa. It's a small town of 8,000 inhabitants with a great charm, set on the water's edge, and whose typical architecture and picturesque streets will delight you. And if you feel like sunbathing together, the beach of Bosa Marina is not far away.
Where to go for Valentine's Day to live of love and gastronomy
Ah Paris, it is not the city of love for nothing! And for those who want to celebrate Valentine's Day with a good meal, it is the perfect city, because it has hundreds of good restaurants where you can taste all the specialties of France, but also of the world.
Whether it's near the Eiffel Tower, on the Place du Tertre in Montmartre, or in Saint-Germain-des-Prés, you'll be spoilt for choice when it comes to dining in a magical place in Paris. For Valentine's Day, restaurants all offer a special menu, but it is true that it is often a bit expensive... You will have to compare the prices in advance and especially think about making a reservation. Finally, it may be more advantageous to opt for a dinner show where discounts are often more interesting. For example, the mythical Crazy Horse has many surprises in store for women on Valentine's Day and its "Crazy in Love" offer for a glamorous evening.
Only 2 hours from Paris by TGV, Bordeaux is another destination that will please lovers. Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, it is one of the most beautiful cities in Gironde. The beauty of its Gothic cathedral and its monuments as well as its gentle way of life are part of its assets. But it is also the city of choice for gourmet couples! In the heart of a wine-growing area, Bordeaux is indeed the guarantee to taste good wines accompanied by a good foie gras or a duck breast with honey. Please note: many gastronomic restaurants in Bordeaux offer dinners for two for the lovers' day at a lower price than in Paris. This is the case, for example, at the Gordon Ramsay Bordeaux brasserie, which will offer a low-cost tasting menu designed by the starred chef himself.
But rather than Venice, which is often grey in February and has high prices on Valentine's Day, we recommend Florence. Of course, you won't find any gondolas, but the charm of Firenze should enchant you. The capital of Tuscany is on a human scale and prices are affordable in restaurants and hotels. Another advantage is that Florence is very easy to visit on foot, in just a few hours. Between its picturesque streets, its beautiful squares and its numerous monuments, you will be able to enjoy the mild Florentine weather.
Where to go for Valentine's Day to relax together
Located near the French border and on the edge of the Black Forest, Baden-Baden is a pleasant German spa with 19th century architecture. It's a good choice for a glamorous/relaxing getaway with your sweetheart. Baden-Baden has twelve thermal baths in various styles, including the modern Caracalla Spa and the historic Friedrichsbad. Accommodation is available in both luxury and mid-range hotels at around 100 euros per night.Don't miss the carriage ride through the gardens of the "Lichtentaler Allee". Romanticism guaranteed!
If you are looking for a romantic city trip that combines relaxation and culture, Budapest is a European capital that we recommend. Beyond its rich cultural heritage at the crossroads of several civilizations, the Pearl of the Danube has nearly a hundred Turkish baths with hot and relaxing thermal springs. Some of them, like the Gellert bath, are true architectural masterpieces! So much for cooing in Hungary!
But for a change of scenery far from the cities, Iceland is a destination to be preferred. Thanks to its great variety of landscapes, it will satisfy all the lovers who like stays in the middle of nature. From the vast expanses of desert near Mývatn, deformed by increased volcanism, to the intricate designs of the western fjords, Iceland gives the feeling of making a journey in different countries. Finally, to relax together, there is nothing like a relaxing break in one of the hundred hot water baths of the country, the most famous of which is the Blue Lagoon.
