From an intimate dinner by candlelight to a Parisian sojourn in a hotel that offers a music playlist appropriate to the occasion, all couples have their own way to celebrate their love.
Paris, the capital of love
What could be more romantic than to surprise that special person in your life with an enchanting stay in a charming Parisian hotel for the occasion of February 14th? That way you’ll have the opportunity to spend some quality time together, sharing unique moments in the capital of love. What’s more, the magic of this unforgettable time as a couple can be enhanced even further by listening to the most beautiful French songs devoted to love.
With its reputation for being one of the most romantic cities in the world, Paris offers the ideal setting for lovers wishing to make the most of Valentine’s Day.

These legendary standards from the French songbook have stood the test of time, appealing to successive generations, so that long-time married couples as well as young lovers will know at least one, and more likely several, of these iconic titles.
