Who said romance is dead? Well I say that it is alive and kicking along the slopes of various ski resorts this season! Not one to follow the conventional route of romance, this year I am giving Paris and Rome a miss and thinking about hitting the slopes. Just imagine waking up together in a warm log cabin, enjoying a fulfilling breakfast of bacon and eggs and heading out together ready to tackle the day ahead.
Located in the Mid-Pyrenees, Toulouse is a great base for a weekend of Ski fun. With a car hire in Toulouse
, you can choose from a wide range of surrounding ski resorts. Drive to Saint-Lary Soulan and try some of the more daring black runs, or for those of you are not quite at that level you can visit the slopes at Encamp perfect for new skiers. At the end of your day you can both retreat to a bubbling hot tub and soak those weary muscles and of course don't forget the champagne!
After you have had all the high energy fun you can take on the slopes, make the most of your France car hire
and venture through this idyllic country. With so many picturesque places to stop at you wonder if the idea of Romance was indeed thought up by the French!
Drive your hire car to Carcassonne
and immerse yourself in the history of this stunning city. The city has a great pick of medieval romantic accommodation and some amazing sightseeing, great to top off your weekend of love! Now, you could say 'I love you' with roses and chocolates but I know what I would prefer: a couple of flight tickets, car hire and confirmation for 2 nights in a log cabin with a hot tub! How are you spending your Valentine's Day?
