Planning to celebrate Valentine’s Day?
Flowers and chocolate are always appreciated, but why not go big to celebrate l’amour this year?
Think about it: a night in a hotel, breakfast in bed, a gourmet dinner, sightseeing in the region—the perfect romantic getaway to escape from the humdrum of daily life and indulge in some quality time together. Hard to resist, isn’t it?
Our romantic getaway suggestions:
A night at Château Vaudreuil
In an enchanting setting, with breathtaking view of the lake and private gardens, Château Vaudreuil is the destination of choice in the region for a perfect romantic weekend. Take a dip in the indoor pool, relax in the whirlpool and stroll hand in hand with your loved one on the hotel’s 10 acres of waterfront property. Top off this memorable experience with a gourmet dinner at the hotel’s outstanding restaurant. Four-footed companions welcome!
If you feel like venturing out of your cocoon to discover the surrounding area, enjoy some great shopping at the myriad stores of Les Avenues Vaudreuil, or head over to the Parc de la Maison-Valois, lace up your skates and glide across the ice skating trails.
Saturday, February 12: Also at Parc de la Maison-Valois, as part of the Winter Fun festivities, challenge your partner during this Olympic Game-themed day! Enjoy the festive atmosphere, foodtruck, smores bar and local microbrewery beer.
Recharge at Auberge des Gallant
