Our tips for a successful romantic break
Clarice Lasemillante taught us during Live on our Instagram account, responsible holiday organising is overwhelmingly down to women. So why not reverse the trend and organise it as a team?
To ensure that this getaway will meet everyone’s expectations, it’s best to organise it together. The aim is for both of you to be involved in choosing the destination, accommodation and activities. This way, everyone will arrive in the best possible condition.
Compromises are the basis for a couple to function well. I’m not teaching you anything and this is not the main point of our subject (to learn more I invite you to read this article on psychologie.fr). Nevertheless, holidays are no exception to the rule! And here it concerns us more.
Just because you’re in love doesn’t mean you only have common interests. If one of you is rather sporty and the other likes cultural visits, you will have to find a destination that pleases everyone. Or you can say to yourself that this time it will be a sporting getaway and the next time you will opt for a destination steeped in history. The advantage of this option is that it forces you to plan a second nature weekend together soon! And that is very good for our married life.
We talked about it in our article on new trends in tourism, slow tourism has the wind in its sails. A weekend away as a couple is the right time to put it into action. In order to be able to find each other and live in the moment, you have to stop chasing time. Only in this context will you fully enjoy these moments together.
Don’t plan every second but let yourself be surprised. Don’t hesitate to sit down, order a drink and enjoy! If you feel like having a nap by the pool, why not?
These off moments, unplanned, can also allow everyone to go about their own business. Reading a book, doing sports… Allowing yourself time alone allows you to appreciate the time together even more.
We’ve already talked about this in our article on disconnection on holiday, it’s essential to take time out from social networks. This is even more true during a romantic weekend. In everyday life, the temptation is great not to pick up your mobile phone. Between social networks, professional and personal emails, we sometimes spend more time in front of our screen than talking to our partner. No judgement, it happens to us all.
To make the most of this time together and renew communication, it is essential to cut the networks for a while. You will be able to talk about subjects that you did not take the time to discuss before, reminisce, laugh, share… In short, you will be able to find yourself and come back stronger to face everyday life.

Unusual stays for lovers
There is nothing like getting out of one’s comfort zone to get away from everyday life. Unusual accommodation is therefore also very suitable for romantic stays.
