If you're planning a romantic trip with a loved one, there can be nowhere more suited to this kind of break than France. The country is renowned for its romance-soaked atmosphere and destinations, so why not take a ferry to France and experience the perfect break away?
Indeed, travelling by ferry can make for the perfect relaxing journey - and you can even sample some fine French food during your Dover to Calais crossing!
Of course, France's most famous romantic destination has to be Paris. Known the world over as a lovers' paradise, it draws scores of couples looking to spend some quality time together.
While there's much you and your partner can do in Paris, the Eiffel Tower has to be the ultimate place to start. This incredible architectural feat is particularly spectacular at night, but if you're keen to travel to the top doing so during the day offers fantastic views over the city.
Meanwhile, taking a scenic walk down the River Seine and enjoying delicate pastries and hot drinks together in pavement cafes is a quintessentially French way to spend a little time with each other.
However, France has plenty of other destinations well-suited to romantic holidays. One such location is Saint-Omer, where you'll find beautiful buildings and gardens waiting to be explored.
Visiting the local cathedral, which dates back to the 13th century, is a must, while the picturesque gardens of the Ramparts simply cannot be missed.
Situated in northern France, Chantilly is another superb destination for a getaway for two. This little city is wonderfully scenic and the ideal place for long walks through beautifully landscaped gardens and fairytale palaces.
The Chateau de Chantilly is the perfect place to start. Comprised of two buildings joined together, it offers the chance to see some fantastic architecture set in large, scenic gardens.
And if you're particularly keen to enjoy picturesque walks together, why not visit Le Notre's Park, where you will find tumbling waterfalls and a mock-Norman village.
Of course, wherever you choose for your romantic holiday, don't forget to try the famous French cuisine and prestigious wines to complete your special break.
For a romantic break with your partner, book a ferry to France and visit one of the country's top romantic destinations. Book your Dover to Calais crossing with SeaFrance today.
