There’s still time to whisk your beloved off their feet and get all loved up with a romantic Valentine’s Day weekend in France, the country of lovers. Whether you’re eighteen or eighty, in the flush of new romance or content in lasting love, the French approach to l’amour is bound to create happy memories. My heart still melts when I think back to a certain Art Nouveau restaurant in Calais with food like art on the plate and little hearts scattered on the tablecloth….

Our image of spring blossom is the view from Gite Biraud Bas, a beautifully converted barn in Castelmoron Sur Lot, in the sunny southern countryside of Lot-et-Garonne. Here you can grab a Valentine Weekend Special from Friday 13th to Mon 16th February. Stay in a beautifully decorated bedroom, enjoy a chilled bottle of champagne, a long stemmed rose and a delicious meal awaiting you – all for £499 for two people. See more at the link below.
Castelmoron Sur Lot is a typically French and picturesque village with a covered square surrounded by little shops and the converted barn is a peaceful romantic hideaway with a luxury feel. It’s set in totally private gardens and about 6 acres of land and has a large deck with stunning views of the Lot valley.
Happy Valentine’s Day to all France Lovers!
