For an unforgettable holiday with friends, a bachelorette party or a change from the usual family trips, there's nothing like organizing a girls' trip. Whether you're an old friend, a single woman, a recent graduate, an office colleague, a sister or cousin... there's no better excuse to spend a weekend or a few days relaxing in a female-only environment. Away from stress and family obligations, a trip with your girlfriends will allow you to break away from your daily routine and relax! This moment can be the ideal opportunity to give way to a change of scenery, to laugh and also to laugh out loud with your friends. Le Petit Futé offers you its best ideas for holidays or weekends with your girlfriends, whether it's a trip to the sun or a cultural and shopping session.
A touch of originality during your girls' weekend: are you curious and want to change? Think about an unusual accommodation, a very fashionable and widespread concept. Numerous websites are full of proposals, each one as eccentric as the other, such as accommodation in yurts, igloos, trailers, tree houses or, recently, in "water drops"! Most of the time, these unusual experiences take you to the middle of nature and, when you arrive in the evening, you have the pleasure of sharing a drink and dinner in a setting that offers a real break from everyday life
Active holidays during a stay with friends: road trip in the Great American West, skiing on the dune in Morocco, diving courses, trekking in the desert, hiking, night in a refuge... Many are the opportunities to reconnect with his nomadic side. Prefer to stay with local people and to meet the local population around a good meal. Destinations such as Morocco, Jordan, Vietnam, India, Thailand and France lend themselves perfectly to this type of stay. Just a few hours by train or several hours by plane, put yourself in the shoes of a backpacker for your getaway with your girlfriends.
A little crazy on a weekend with her friends. Some hotels take care of women and let them know. The H10 Marina Hotel in Barcelona, for example, has large dressing rooms for shopping enthusiasts, the Ritz in Madrid has crystal ring holders in the bathroom and heated mirrors, and the Artemisia Hotel in Berlin is exclusively for ladies, while the staff at the Portal Hotel in Brisbane, Australia, is all-female! Scented rooms, emergency make-up kits, women's magazines, gigantic mirrors, silk pyjamas, special menus and cocktails... hotels now offer a wide range of services for your well-being and this new trend is growing.
Shopping and cultural weekend in a city less than 3 hours from Paris
The most classic girlie. Shopping between girlfriends in London, a cultural getaway in Amsterdam, a bachelorette party in Venice, a wellness escape in Essaouira... a multitude of opportunities to entertain you ladies! Take the opportunity to discover other trendy cities across Europe: Berlin, Brussels, Lisbon, Liverpool, Prague, Florence, Madrid... The old continent is home to a large number of dynamic cities where you can go shopping together, stroll through museums, go to a show and enjoy the local gastronomy.
Who says bachelors aren't allowed to have fun? Meet new people on your girlfriend weekend. Today, being single is no longer a taboo, but rather a new opportunity to have fun and enrich your smartphone's contacts! Get together with your girlfriends at a campsite for singles, skiing, cruising... If you don't like this community spirit, rent a villa with a swimming pool in France, Spain or Croatia and stay with your girlfriends. This solution will also have the advantage of being less expensive.
Holidays to perfect your tan
Go away from the dreariness even in winter with her friends. Who says you can only get a tan in the summer? Certainly not those who have already gone off-season to Marrakech and Tenerife in particular, only a few hours from Paris. But of course, you'll have to make longer trips to see the turquoise water hitting your ankles and the soles of your feet treading on the fine, warm, white sand. To do this, head for Martinique, Reunion Island, Cuba or the beautiful beaches of Zanzibar, Goa in India or Halong Bay in Vietnam. With friends, under coconut trees and a drink in hand, what more could you ask for?
Meeting around music with your friends is always a delicious moment of sharing and complicity. For rock lovers, the mythical Glastonbury festival in the UK has the richest programme. But you will be able to wiggle your hips just as much at the Roskilde Festival in Denmark, at Dour in our Belgian neighbours, at the Sziget in the middle of the Danube or even at the Wacken Open Air in Germany, for the most metalheaded among you. The opportunity to get together in a girls' tent under the stars and wake up every morning with only one desire: to quickly get back in front of the stage to sing and dance.
A journey of the senses between friends. Why don't you girls go off and have some fun? On the program, a small gourmet stay in Greece around a moussaka, a fragrant salad or a fish dish. Or why not a trip to Istanbul to stop at one of the many restaurants offering dishes such as borek, balik ekmek, kebap, doner and kote without forgetting the baklava for dessert over a good tea. And then, without going very far, France is also renowned for being the country of gastronomy par excellence. So a trip to the Basque Country in Bayonne for a weekend allows you to enjoy mouth-watering cold meats and cheeses
Free to party all night long while you're on vacation with your girlfriends, how's that sound? As an introduction, nothing original to offer, the fiesta in Barcelona or Ibiza, but with these two emblematic destinations of the flaming Spanish nights, it is the assurance of not being disappointed. More unexpected, the city of Cartagena in Colombia and its languorous evenings. Mykonos, Miami, Monte-Carlo and Saint-Tropez of course... That said, Eastern Europe is not to be outdone with Riga, Budapest, Bratislava, Krakow and Belgrade, rising stars of the night drunk with friends
It is also possible to combine business with pleasure during a girls' weekend. You don't have to go far for that, and all destinations offer a wide choice of sporting holidays. Water sports by the sea or near a lake, activities on foot or by bike, hiking in the mountains, there is something for everyone. And why not take the opportunity to challenge yourself and try the extreme: rafting, paragliding, trekking in the Far North. The craziest experiences are just waiting for you and promise indelible memories
