Which European country brings to mind romance?
Of course, you guessed correctly! It's France.
Whether you dream of an evening boat ride on the Seine River, floating past Paris' famous lighted monuments, or if your idea of romance includes an intimate dinner for two in an unforgettable bistro in an ancient stone walled city, France has it: romance and atmosphere is what this country is all about.
Excellent food and fabulous wines are just a perk, L'amour is everywhere and it's French.
The French countryside is all about romance. Ancient hedgerows line quiet country lanes perfect for a bike ride and picnic “en tête-à tête”.
Stop alongside a stone well or a mineral spring for your picnic, cooling your bottle of drink in the spring while you admire thatched roofed cottages reminiscent of days gone by.
Daily life in France turns around good food and drink, enjoyed in a decor fit for the kings and queens of yore who enjoyed these same bucolic settings for their own pleasurable pass times.
Visit their castles and manor houses, some of which have been turned into B&Bs or luxury hotels.
For sporting enthusiasts, couples can indulge in canoeing and kayaking along France's many streams and rivers.
Hiking, skiing or snow-boarding in the various mountain ranges all easily accessible by train from the capital is a must for the winter sports enthusiast.
A day on the slopes followed with a glass of “vin chaud”, or warm spiced wine is a wonderful way to heat up your evenings.
Beaches abound in France with coastlines on three of its five sides.
Water sports such as sailing, jet-skiing, windsurfing, or speed sailing followed by a seafood dinner with a tart local Muscadet wine make a coastal vacation an attractive option.
Don't forget a long walk along the seaside, or lounging in the sun.
Nude beaches are available in various sites for the like minded who want a tan line-free bronzed body.
