Enjoy a romantic Valentine’s Day stay at Hotel Montfleuri and explore some of the most beautiful views and locations in Paris. The hotel is within easy reach of some of the city’s most magical sights, and is a charming choice for your couples break.
The capital is known for its elegant buildings and beautiful avenues and parks, so what could be more romantic than enjoying some of the most exceptional views as you toast each other with a glass of champagne?
The Eiffel Tower is undoubtedly one of the most famous and recognisable monuments in the world. Built for the World Fair in 1889, the tower is a masterpiece of engineering and has long been a favourite lover’s tryst. Take a trip to the top to see the whole of Paris laid before you as far as the eye can see, and celebrate with a chilled glass of bubbly in the Champagne Bar.
Idyllic views over the most romantic city in Europe
The square in front of the Basilica du Sacré-Coeur at Montmartre is also known for its incredible views, while inside the Basilica’s ornate dome you can see the city from an even higher vantage point. After gazing over Paris you might stroll hand in hand through the winding streets of the Abbesses district or visit the famous “I love You, the wall” or the Moulin Rouge cabaret at the foot of the hill.
Be adventurous and head for Montparnasse for a romantic city view with a difference. Enjoy a thrilling trip to the 56th floor of the Montparnasse Tower in Europe’s fastest lift before being astounded by the magnificent view. It’s a wonderful place to share a moment as you gaze at all the monuments and landmarks, and the Ciel de Paris restaurant is the perfect spot for a romantic meal for two.
There are lots of other romantic Valentine’s Day views to discover; from the Eiffel Tower of course, the hot air balloon at Parc Andre Citroen or the elegant paths of Parc Belleville to the terrace of the Pompidou Centre in the Marais district, and all can be easily accessed by taxi or metro from Hotel Montfleuri.
