Treat the special person in your life with a short break away.
We all enjoy a break away from work and the pressure of our hectic lives. With time being so precious a romantic break away gives you the opportunity to spend quality time with that special someone in your life.
The hotels we have highlighted for a romantic break have either been recommended by Great Escapes' customers or have something a little special about them. Choices include the Terrass Hotel; a superb 4 star hotel located in the bohemian district of Montmartre, in what is still considered by many as the most romantic city the world, Paris. In Bruges you will find the Best Western Premier Hotel Navarra, an elegant and romantic 17th century listed building situated close to the beautiful Markt Square.
For a romantic break in France most people immediately think of Paris. Without doubt this city can be romantic: a dinner cruise along the River Seine; finding yourselves lost amongst classic artworks in The Louvre; an indulgent meal in a traditional French brasserie; or simply walking hand in hand along the Champs Elysées - you can be spoilt for choice. All of our hotels across Paris offer easy access to the key sites, so regardless of where you stay you can enjoy the delights of this city.
However, if you have been to Paris before or want to take in more of the French countryside or coastline, a short break to other towns and cities in France has much to offer. From the popular family-run 2 star Le Romantica in Honfleur to the 18th century 4 star La Chartreuse du Val St Espirit in Northern France we have handpicked from our French hotels and châteaux those which we feel would make your romantic break away a little more special regardless of your budget.
At some of the hotels there is the opportunity to sample gourmet cuisine accompanied by a choice of fine wines for which France is renowned; at other hotels their location allows easy access to local restaurants for a romantic meal....
With beautifully preserved buildings, atmospheric city squares, meandering canals and some of the best chocolate in the world, Belgium offers romance in abundance!
The Flanders region of Belgium lies to the north of the country and offers a vast array of gothic cathedrals, folklore, fine hospitality, cuisine and art to all its visitors.
For our romantic breaks we have handpicked some delightful hotels in Bruges, Brussels, Ghent and Mechelen, which have a touch of character or are slightly different in their overall presentation.
The cities themselves have much to offer; the Belgian cuisine is varied and competes well with France. No visit to Belgium would be complete without sampling some of their famed epicurean delights such as Belgian chocolate, moules frites or at least one of the 360 types of beer available.
