The struggle is real… What do you get your better half for Valentines day? How many roses say “I Love You”. One? Twelve? Or is it twenty? And then you find yourself googling what colour rose means what… damn it cupid! St Valentines Day is a hard time for all of us. However have no fear… enter hopeless romantic Lauren! I’ve got you covered to impress your beau this V day.
Nice has so much to offer to make your getaway super romantic and you can fly to Nice from London from as little as £24.68, Great start!
Here are a few of my favourite ideas…
1. FOR CHEESY LOVERS
Le Lieu, La Cave du Fromager
Located in the heart of Nice, The Old Town the restaurant La Cave du Fromager is the ideal spot if you are looking for something more intimate. A beautiful cellar with exposed brick and stone, separated into several rooms. Cheese is their passion but there is also plenty to choose from! It’s a yes from me!
2. FOR THE LOVERS OF GOOD FOOD
If you’re looking for a restaurant that’s a bit quirky but also breath takingly picturesque then look no further. Mas Provençal, located in the Village of Eze, is a magical setting, surrounded by fresh flowers, vegetables and exotic trees, even grapes hanging from the ceiling! If you are a wine lover Mas Provençal quality of aged wine is second to none. Their risotto and lamb are world famous and you can find lots of fantastic reviews about them!
Although if I were you I would spend the afternoon in this beautiful medieval village, you can get the 82 or 112 bus from the Port in Nice. Eze is located on a hilltop about 1,400 feet above sea level (so wear suitable shoes as the streets are very steep and cobbled!), surrounded by astonishing views!It will be an unforgettable experience!
3. FOR THE OUTDOORSY DUO
Picnic at the Chateau (castle) of Nice
Okay, so it’s a little bit of a trek but TOTALLY worth that view.
My personal favourite, grab some nibbles from the Cours Saleya food market in the morning and a bottle of prosecco and have a stroll up the Chateau. The walk up is beautiful as you get a 360 view of Nice and it is not disappointing when you reach the top! Don’t forget to take a blanket to snuggle up in.
4. FOR CREATIVE COUPLES
Private perfume creation at Galimaid perfumery -
A perfect day trip, just jump on the train to Grasse (takes about an hour) and meet a renowned perfumer! You can book a private session to create your own scent and leave with 100ml of your personal perfume. You can even get the opportunity to discover you ‘Nose’ and discover behind the scenes.
5. FOR the ‘READY TO POP THE QUESTION’
A Lovey – Dovey stay at our Juliette apartment -
If you are looking to bend the knee, STAY YNA’s Juliette apartment is known for its engagements. Over the last 10 years we have had no less than fifteen proposals and the same number of acceptances! Located in the Old Town it’s next to lively Place Rossetti with cafés and street singers and the magnificent glittering domed cathedral. It’s also a stones throw away from the Cours Saleya market, where you can buy some fresh flowers and all the ingredients for your romantic dinner.
Sip champagne on the balcony and soak up the ambience, the perfect setting for a day to remember.
