Valentine’s Day is when we’re all encouraged to pay a little extra attention to our loved ones; to appreciate them, to do something special and to enjoy each other’s company. Having said this, we should look for ways to show our appreciation and affection throughout the year and in lots of different ways.
We all express love in unique ways, so if you’re not tempted to purchase a pricey bunch of red roses, or can’t find a card that really says what you feel, then go for something original. Why not write your own heartfelt message, buy a book from a charity shop that is much more your partner’s thing, fixing a problem without being asked, cook the first meal you ever shared or booking a break away.
Paris is a city that is linked with romance, so a short city break in France’s capital could be the ideal destination for a special treat. A boat trip down the Seine and an impressive view from the top of the Eifel tower are popular choices for couples in Paris.
If city breaks don’t particularly appeal, there are plenty of other destinations in France that could give you time together pursuing your favourite pass times and here are a few ideas.
The impressive chateaux of the Loire Valley conjure up images of fairy tales and romantic times gone by. Set in a picturesque part of France, this region feels a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of city life. A picnic in the beautifully designed and tendered gardens of one of these historic buildings could put up a good challenge for a table in the finest restaurant.
If you prefer a bit of action, why not head to the Atlantic coast and sign up for a surfing or sailing course. A challenge on the waves certainly gets the heart pumping and what’s more romantic than sharing stories and planning the next adventure whilst watching the sun go down on a golden beach?
For lovers of music, dance and culture, Brittany has a rich heritage which is proudly celebrated at festivals throughout the year. Throw yourself into the myths and legends at locations including mystical Carnac, the site of over 3,000 prehistoric standing stones.
A holiday in France could be the perfect way to treat your loved one this year and at Carisma we aim to make everyone fall in love with France.
