With 14 February approaching, couples who take pleasure in planning Valentine’s Day surprises have a new romantic destination to opt for this year.
Villages Nature® Paris is a tranquil, leafy retreat just two and a half hours from London by Eurostar. Located just outside Paris, guests can enjoy the classic lovers’ destination with a new outdoorsy twist. The French capital owes its well-deserved reputation as the city of love to its cosy cafés, floral perfumes and spectacular monuments that twinkle at night. The Sacré-Coeur Basilica, or sacred heart, calls to romantics from near and far, and couples with the world at their feet can learn to say “I love you” in 250 languages at the Musée de Montmartre.
Delight in seeing all the sites of Paris before unwinding in the private setting of Villages Nature® Paris. Lovers can pamper themselves with the duo massage – a soothing treatment for two at the new Deep Nature® spa – and bathe al fresco in the naturally-heated outdoor lagoon, which is heated to 30ºC even on a crisp winter’s evening. And why not admire the extraordinary gardens from the cottage terrace, or take a tandem bicycle down to the lakeside promenade? For a morning of fresh air and laughter, try a Segway experience and put those balancing skills to the test.
The cosy cottages are an excellent value option for those who wish to impress by planning an overseas trip without breaking the bank. And, instead of staying at an inner-city hotel, couples can immerse themselves in a multitude of activities at the eco-friendly holiday village. From gardening workshops and mini-golf, to water workouts and fitness trails – many of which are included in the stay – there’s plenty of adult-friendly fun to be had.
For those who know that food is the gateway to their partner’s heart, why not explore the cobbled streets of Paris or make the most of the excellent eateries on site at Villages Nature® Paris? The Cépages restaurant and bar at the village centre offers a Valentine’s menu for lovers made with locally-sourced ingredients paired with exquisite regional wine. With a classic French bakery within walking distance of the cottages, guests can even wake their loved ones with a fresh pastry in bed each morning.
Villages Nature® Paris has an assortment of accommodations for different group sizes. The park’s Cocoon VIP is ideal for couples, with soft and stylish décor and room for two in either a one-bedroom cottage or apartment by the lake or in the village centre.
For a mid-week stay, arriving 12 February and staying four nights’, a cottage/apartment sleeping two people is priced from €765 on a self-catering basis. A three-night weekend stay from Friday 16 February costs from €725 for a cottage/apartment sleeping two people on a self-catering basis.
All accommodation features free Wi-Fi, fully-equipped kitchens with dishwashers, furnished terraces or balconies and flat-screen TVs. Baby beds and high chairs are available in all cottages and upon request in apartments.
