Romantic Paris for Valentine’s Day

7 years ago - Pauline P.

What city would be more romantic than Paris to declare its flame? The capital is full of nooks and crannies with old-fashioned charm, bucolic parks, intimate restaurants... so many places perfect for a head to head love. For Valentine's Day, follow our guide to the most romantic secret addresses in Paris...

The museum of the Romantic life

Museum of the Romantic life in Paris

Its name sums up the place well. This museum (free!) Is dedicated to the current of romanticism, but is above all a place out of time, favorable to romantic walks. Beyond the art pieces of the artist Ary Scheffer, former occupant of the place and the collection dedicated to the woman of letters George Sand, it is the bucolic setting that attracts visitors. A small paved walkway, a vast house, a flower garden, and yet, you are still in Paris!

Musée de la Vie romantique – Hôtel Scheffer-Renan - 16 rue Chaptal, 75009

Metro: Pigalle or Saint-Georges

Perched on a tree

Restaurant in Paris perched on a tree

This is an ideal place for a romantic evening. You can dine seated on swings or perched in small suspended huts or tree houses. Intimacy guaranteed! Make sure to book in advance to make sure you have a seat on one of the two swing tables. You also have the opportunity to enjoy massages in a back room before or after your meal. A truly unusual address for a memorable one on one!

The bridge of Parc Monceau

Bridge of Parc Monceau in Paris

In the 8th arrondissement of Paris (and on the border of the chic part of the 17th arrondissement), Parc Monceau is one of the most pleasant gardens in Paris. A garden at the same time familial and romantic, created in the second half of the 18th century as a garden of illusions and pleasures. The small Venetian bridge that hides there is the landmark of lovers, and is very romantic for a photo shoot for two...

The wall of I love you

Wall of I love you Paris

Hidden in the small square Jehan Rictus near the metro Abbesses, on the Montmartre hill, the wall of "I love you" was created to represent the reconciliation of the people. If the walls and the borders generally have the function of dividing, the wall of the "I love you" is instead a place of brotherhood. Dedicated to love, this work has become a meeting place for lovers all over the world, who come to read the 311 "I love you" written in 250 different languages.

The Pont des Arts and the Pont de l’Archevêché

Pont des Arts Paris

Tradition wanted lovers to hang on the Pont des Arts and the Pont de l'Archevêché, more or less imposing padlocks, on which were engraved their names or initials, to leave a trace of their love in the capital of romanticism... But unfortunately, the weight of the padlocks threatening to damage the bridges, the padlocks were removed in 2015. These two bridges remain however places of emblematic walks for lovers, and corners of picnics for two very appreciated by couples.

Gazebo at the Buttes Chaumont

Parc of the Buttes Chaumont Paris

Like all Gazebos, the one from the Buttes Chaumont is a fairly quiet place in winter, because you have to have the courage to climb up the 173 steps despite the cold! Located on an island which is accessed by a bridge or a footbridge, it is twice isolated. With its Italian temple allures (from which it is directly inspired), it offers a view of Montmartre, the Eiffel Tower and more simply on the 19th arrondissement that surrounds it. A really romantic spot where to hug to warm up!

The boats of bois de Boulogne

The boats of Bois de Boulogne

For courageous sailors or delayed lovers, the boats of the Bois de Boulogne, to be rented from February 15th, are perfect. Enjoy a stroll on the water, away from the hustle and bustle, to share a nice moment for two in the green lungs of the capital.
