Discover 8 French cities for a romantic stay

There are so many reasons to want to go away as a couple far away from time to time: Valentine’s Day, anniversary of meeting or wedding, the desire to meet again… We often dream of flying away from France in order to cut yourself off from the world and be alone with your other half. Unfortunately, for budget or time reasons, it is not always possible to go to the other side of the world. The good news is that in France we are well served when it comes to romance. So here are some ideas for a weekend or a week as a couple.


  • Paris ile de France
  • Annecy, Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes
  • Nimes, Occitanie
  • Saint-Malo, Brittany
  • Bonifacio, Corsica
  • Bordeaux, Aquitaine
  • Menton, Provence-Alpes-Cote d’Azur
  • Strasbourg, Alsace

Paris ile de France

Paris is of course the capital of France, but it is also said to be the capital of love and romance. Paris is therefore the ideal destination for a romantic trip to France. Indeed, many tourist places in the capital are suitable for walks and very pleasant moments alone. Between the Eiffel Tower, Montmartre, the Seine or the Louvre Museum, you can easily combine romance and culture . Of course, Paris is not romantic as a whole, which is why we advise you to organize your stay well in advance and to choose carefully where you will stay so as not to be disappointed. You can also take advantage of your getaway to try the many very romantic restaurants in the capital. Also, the Parisian brunches are the best in the country and allow you to share a good moment for two. If you have a little time in front of you and a budget that allows it, go to Disneyland Paris ! This magical place attracts many couples every day and they do not regret it!

Annecy, Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes

Also called “ the Venice of the Alps ”, Annecy is the ideal destination for people who wish to find peace and enjoy a city that enjoys an exceptional setting . In summer, you can walk or cycle along the lake bordered by mountains, go pedalo and even swim in these turquoise waters. During all seasons of the year, you can discover the typical narrow streets of Annecy and its mountain atmosphere. During your walk along the canals, don’t forget to pass over the Amours bridge , legend says that a couple who kiss on this bridge will stay together for life.

Nimes, Occitanie

It is well known, the atmosphere of the south brings souls together. Nîmes is a city in Occitania with a unique setting in France. Indeed, it bears witness to a history of the Roman Empire . You will find well-preserved monuments , such as the arena of Nîmes, the Maison Carrée, and the Pont du Gard. We can compare this city to a small French Rome. In addition, you will find the sea about 30 minutes by car. This is therefore an idyllic destination for a short romantic weekend that will allow you to get out of your routine.

Saint-Malo, Bretagne

Eh oui, la Bretagne aussi offre un cadre romantique ! C’est plus précisément à Saint-Malo que nous vous conseillons de séjourner pour un moment magique en amoureux. La plage du sillon est le rendez-vous des couples du coin ! Certains décident même de découvrir cet endroit à cheval pour augmenter l’intensité du moment. Le soir, manger dans un restaurant avec vue sur l’océan vous fera succomber au charme du lieu, mais aussi certainement de votre partenaire.

Bonifacio, Corse

Located on high cliffs , Bonifacio dominates the Mediterranean Sea. There are many activities to do in this city, in particular boat trips to discover the magnificent surroundings or walks in the fortified old town which offers a sumptuous panorama. In short, you will not have time to get bored in Bonifacio, but these activities being more than romantic, you will leave even closer to your other half than expected!

Bordeaux, Aquitaine

Bordeaux has it all! There too, boredom has no place. In addition to enjoying the charm and atmosphere of the city, we invite you to discover the surroundings of Bordeaux if you are transported. The vineyards, the beaches of Arcachon or the Dune du Pilat are very romantic even if they remain very touristy during the summer season. Depending on your desires, many possibilities will therefore be available to you during your romantic stay in Bordeaux.

Menton, Provence-Alpes-Cote d’Azur

For a romantic getaway of a few days, Menton is perfect! In an idyllic setting thanks to the Mediterranean Sea and an old town classified as a “City of Art and History” and its many shaded and flowery places, the stay can only be pleasant! This destination is therefore conducive to calm and relaxation as a couple. On the program: short walks along the sea and in the city, sunbathing and meals in front of beautiful sunsets.

Strasbourg, Alsace

Strasbourg is a city that is both authentic and romantic . Spending a romantic moment there is always an opportunity to get closer to your partner, especially in winter when it is good to warm up. Its unusual architectural style will allow you to get out of your daily life and find yourself in a bubble with the person you love.
