Valentines Week: Paris and The Hôtel Ritz Paris

Valentines Week: Paris and The Hôtel Ritz Paris

The Valentines Week continues with us taking on the Chunnel Train from London to Paris!  Valentines Day in Paris while staying at the Hôtel Ritz Paris.  Right about now I get a really big smile on my face just thinking about our time spent in Paris. Shopping, Jardin des Tuileries, Musée d’Orsay, Sainte-Chapelle.. Our Valentines Week: Paris and The Hôtel Ritz Paris, the memories will last forever.

Paris has so much to see and do that it’s pretty hard to pick and choose what to see in 3 days.  But this one is about Valentines Week so here are some of my favorite things to do in Paris for Valentines Week that can be a little touristy but romantic too:

The Hôtel Ritz Paris

If you can stay at this hotel while in Paris I would as I plan on again some day.  The Hôtel Ritz Paris in France is Gorgeous, Gorgeous, Gorgeous! Everything you could want is offered here including their own little designer shopping mall.  The rooms are just beautiful, clean, very French which I love! The bathrooms are detailed with gold Swans for all finishes.  You really feel special and luxurious at the Hôtel Ritz Paris. Romance is in the air here with the courtyard all lit up with white lights.  The hotel sent our room Champagne and a chocolate Ritz Teddy Bear dusted in gold. Of course, I brought it home and it is in our wine cellar, where it will always be displayed.

If you can not stay here, at least schedule sometime to sit and have a drink and/or meal.  Hotel hopping is one of my favorite things to do in cities, I will write about this fun activity one day.

Sainte Chapelle

I still find this hard to believe but we have been to Paris several times and we skipped this each trip! Finally, we arrive perfect timing in line to enter this gothic chapel of stain glass. Having the largest collection of 13th century stained glass in the entire world, you soon see what this actually means as soon as you walk in.  You actually can hear an “awe” in every language it is that impressive.  The colors radiating throughout are just magnificent.  How is this romantic?  When you are standing there with your special someone seeing this, well its just such a special moment to share such a magnitude of history and beauty.

Even in the winter walking through this park is full of romance.   Take your time and stroll around the ponds, take a ride on the carousel.  Of course you need to rest in-between so enjoy a  glass of wine at La Terrasse de Pomone.  Admire the Maillol ,Rodin and Giacometti statues that are displayed throughout the park. The most important point is take your time and take a moment to look around and say “I’m in Paris!”

Romantic Meals

You are in the city of love so it’s pretty easy to have a romantic meal in Paris.  I have yet to be in a restaurant in Paris that was not unique in it’s own way.  Just being in Paris makes it romantic, so order some wine and enjoy a meal.  Paris is known for food to be an art and they prove it throughout the city.  Splurge at least on Valentines Day dinner with a great view and a chef that will make sure your night is special.  Antoine has a wonderful view of the Eiffel Tower as you dine.  Or even yet you can dine in the Eiffel Tower!

Window Shop or better yet Shop!

Strolling in Paris along the busy streets peaking into windows is a must do!  Some of the most creative and unique window displays are found in Paris.   And do not feel awkward about just looking many people do and it’s fun (read more) ! It does not all have to be about clothes, shoes and jewelry (although that’s my favorite).  The windows of the local chocolatier and/or a pâtisserie are to tempting to pass up.  Enter to sample some of the best the world has to offer! Buy something for each other to remember this oh so special Valentines week and Valentines Day.  Walk arm in arm as you enjoy your day together.

 Visit some Museums

Yes, even going to museums can be romantic! The art in Paris is so overwhelming that it will turn anyone into an appreciator of art.  There is a feeling you get when you see a piece of art with your own eyes that you studied in school, that is indescribable.  For a romantic museum afternoon head over to the Musée d’Orsay to see Impressionism at it’s fullest.

Of course, these are only a few of the things to do in Paris for Valentines Week and actual Valentines Day.  It is the City of Love after all.

    I think Paris is the perfect destination for Valentine’s day! Such a romantic city! And I love your suggestion about the Ritz: how cool that their faucets are shaped like gold swans!!!

  • Eloise

    Oh! I was writing about the Sainte Chapelle earlier today. A place I’ve never visited although I grew up near Paris… *regrets*
    It seems you have very good tastes in wine… Nuits-Saint-Georges is one of my partner’s favourite wines (and he knows about wines). We always try to bring a bottle back with us when we visit France 😉

    Hotel looks very stunning. Perfect destination for this Valentine’s day. Thanks for sharing.

    London and Paris for Valentine’s Day?! I can think of few places as classically romantic as that to share the day with Cupid! Great post 🙂

  • Tara

    This sounds like the most perfect Valentine’s Day! Something about France—especially Paris—is just so romantic!

  • Constance

    Wow the Ritz looks fancy! I wish you’d included a photo of the chocolate gold teddy bear, I’m so curious about what it looks like after reading the description of it! I loved Saint-Chapelle since before I visited it, I actually wrote a paper on it back in college. It was even more amazing in real life, I can’t even begin to tell you how long I spent in there (probably hours) haha.
