Just a two-hour ride away on the Eurostar from London or a short flight from airports around the UK, Paris is hard to beat when it comes to weekend getaways. You might not be able to take late-night strolls along the Seine until the flooding subsides, but there are a million and one more romantic activities to enjoy in the City of Light. Spend your afternoons wandering the cobblestone streets of the Latin Quarter, soaking up some culture and a bit of elusive sunshine at Musée Rodin, or just indulging in an inordinate amount of freshly baked baguettes smothered in Camembert (best enjoyed with a glass — or several glasses — of Cabernet).
I'd recommend renting one of holiday rentals company Paris Perfect's charming apartments in the French capital if you want to blend the convenient, comfortable atmosphere of an apartment with the accommodations of a luxury hotel. The agency also offers a number of romantic package deals — planning city tours, river cruises (when available), and even dinner reservations for you and your other half (so really, all you've got to worry about is buying your Eurostar tickets).
Most apartments start around £250 a night, but booking before Feb. 28 will save you 25 percent!
