When you are in a very loving relationship, there can still be many hassles that compete for attention that you would ideally prefer to give to your partner. Obvious examples include work and children; it’s no wonder that the two of you could soon yearn for a private getaway together. Still, how can you plan a weekend trip in a way that should help to keep the romance intact? Here are a few romantic weekend getaways – and remember, there is no “one size fits all” for what constitutes romantic.
How to Have the Best Romantic Weekend Getaways
Carefully consider what you both want
As we have just started to explain, ideas of what would be romantic weekend getaways can vary. While you might currently be mulling over a beach holiday, your partner may instead be considering taking you back to the restaurant where you had your first date.
You should, therefore, remember to chat with your significant other to get an idea of what they would like for a romantic weekend – and see if this desire aligns with yours, advises USA Today.
List various potential destinations
Once you and your partner have decided what type of romantic trip you would both like, this could better position you to select a destination that ticks all of the vital boxes.
However, if you are still feeling indecisive, don’t be afraid to compile a lengthy list of possible destinations. One typical choice would be Paris, the French capital that is particularly renowned for its enviable fashion, including haute couture.
Choose a remote setting
While there is nothing wrong with opting for a bustling city like London or New York if this genuinely takes your fancy, the weekend doesn’t necessarily have to be restricted to the attractions of a single metropolis.
Instead, you could follow Condé Nast Traveler‘s advice to journey somewhere remote. For example, from Paris city centre, you would only need to travel a further 30 kilometres to reach Château Bouffémont, our stunning luxury venue that you can rent for a romantic weekend.
The château is set among large grounds – including spectacular manicured French gardens – and gorgeous countryside further afield. If you indeed choose us for chateau rental in France, the two of you will be able to enjoy the building’s attractions exclusively.
Those attractions include fine fabrics and refined interior decor; keep an eye out for the crystal chandeliers in our magnificent heritage building. Château Bouffémont is also a great place to try something new; on-site, we can let you sample golf, tennis, and private fitness and dance lessons.
Make time for excursions off the beaten track
If you do choose Paris, you might soon notice that – despite its broad array of well-known attractions like the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre – you still overlook much of what the city has to offer. Fortunately, U.S. News has put together a detailed guide to affordably enjoying Paris.
As you read this guide, keep in mind that Château Bouffémont takes just 20 minutes to reach from the city’s Charles de Gaulle Airport.
