Sunday May 28th will be Mother's Day! The perfect opportunity to please your beloved mother by taking her for a little getaway. But where to go on Mother's Day? Here is a selection of perfect destinations for a long weekend in France or elsewhere, at low prices.
Where to go on Mother's Day: Dextends to Paris
Paris remains one of the most beautiful cities in the world in many ways... This is a great reason to (re)discover the capital with your mother!
We recommend starting with a short boat trip on the Seine. But rather than the classic bateaux-mouches, whose multilingual loudspeakers are quickly tiring, take a river shuttle without comments to calmly enjoy the beauties of Paris.
For example, the Bateaux de Paris company offers a brand new boat, the Insolite, without commentary or guide, but which offers a panoramic view to observe the main monuments of Paris in a 1h30 cruise.
It will then be time to take her to discover the Great Perfume Museum. It's a new museum, open since the end of 2016, where she will not only be able to understand all the secrets of how perfumes are made, but also to make one herself by participating in a workshop
Another possibility is to go for an afternoon hammam with her. Paris has some very beautiful hammams, including the mythical hammam of the Paris Mosque or those of the Cents Ciels, which also offer a special Mother's Day formula with free perfume and a gift voucher.
Where to go for Mother's Day : Sun in Corsica
It is the right season to go to Corsica because the weather is already very nice and the prices are very soft compared to the summer when prices are soaring! On the price side, you can really get great deals on accommodation by the sea at this time of the year!
For an original stay, we recommend the Gulf of Saint-Florent and its pretty little port town, between sea and mountains. You will be able to enjoy a beautiful citadel, as well as the beach and paths in the middle of nature. For a better value for money, we recommend that you stay in an apart-hotel where the night will cost you an average of 75 € for two.Where to go on Mother's Day: Nature stay in Tyrol
Austria is also an exotic destination to do with your mum!
We particularly recommend Tyrol for a typical stay. Head for the Wildschönau, a bucolic high plateau in the heart of the Kitzbühel Alps with 260 working farms, picturesque mountain pastures and lots of traditions.
The 4,200 inhabitants of the four hamlets Niederau, Oberau, Auffach and Thierbach live mainly from agriculture and tourism. It is also a dream region for hiking. Another plus: the good price-performance ratio. Accommodation with breakfast in a picturesque guesthouse in the Wildschönau will cost you on average only 80 € per person per day.
Where to go on Mother's Day: Road trip on the Grand Tour of Switzerland
With the return of the beautiful days, it's also the right time to set off on the roads of Switzerland and discover its sublime landscapes during a road trip with your mother!
The 1,600 km Grand Tour de Suisse is a tour that offers you the best of the country. It is a kind of American Route 66 and now an unmissable event in Europe. It crosses the most beautiful regions of the country, five Alpine passes, passes along 22 lakes and passes close to 44 must-see sites, 11 UNESCO World Heritage sites and two biospheres. It's up to you to adapt this tour according to your time of stay and your mother's tastes!
Where to go for Mother's Day: Digital detox in Croatia
If your mother needs a break from the world, take her to a Croatian island in a Robinson house for a "disconnected" vacation. Located on islands, with often difficult access, often only by sea, these houses were owned by fishermen before being converted to accommodate tourists. They are much sought after because they are particularly isolated and far from the world. Without internet, they are ideal for a digital detox in the sun. Electricity is supplied by solar panels and water comes from rain or from the cistern.
Where to go on Mother's Day: Thermal spa stay in Baden Baden
Situated close to the French border and on the edge of the Black Forest, Baden-Baden is a pleasant German spa resort with 19th century architecture. It is a good choice for a glamorous/relaxing getaway with your mother. Baden Baden has twelve spas in various styles, including the modern Caracalla Spa and the historic Friedrichsbad Baths.
As for accommodation, there are both luxury hotels and middle-class establishments at around 100 euros per night.
The splendid old town offers beautiful shops for shopping and good restaurants for gourmets. Don't miss a short carriage ride through the gardens of the Lichtentaler Allee and a visit to the city's landmark casino.
