 (7-minute read)

Imagine being in romantic France, strolling in the serene countryside, hand in hand with the one you love, bathed by moonlight, and cooled by a gentle breeze on a warm summer evening. Around you the best of romantic France is beating softly – rolling hills, picturesque vineyards, and quaint, cobblestoned villages. It’s like revisiting first dates with your loved one.

Then the illusion is shattered.

“Mum, Dad… how much further to go?”

Here at Country Kids in the heart of Occitanie (there is no better example of romantic France), we believe in delivering the best in all-inclusive family holidays, because spending quality time with family is important. We also believe that parents deserve more, too. If you have ever asked yourself, “How do we get quality time in a relationship when we have a busy life and kids?” – we have the answer.

At Country Kids, parents have the unique opportunity to reconnect as a couple, secure in the knowledge that your children are enjoying themselves under expert care. How would you spend an evening as a couple again under the clear, moonlit sky of romantic France?

Here are just a few ideas.

Evening Strolls Through Idyllic, Romantic France

There’s something inherently romantic about an evening stroll, especially in the tranquil surroundings of Occitanie. Take the time to relax with each other as you wander through deserted rural lanes, the stillness of the countryside surrounding you. Walk along the shores of the nearby Lake Salagou while the moonlight bounces off its gently lapping water.

If you desire a little solitude, the time to become yourselves again, we can recommend secluded paths, offering couples the chance to enjoy each other’s company in the peace and beauty of rural romantic France.

Gourmet Dining at Local Restaurants

No romantic evening is complete without a fine dining experience, and we have some of the most incredible places to dine on our doorstep.

From restaurants perched on hilltops offering panoramic views to intimate bistros tucked away in medieval villages, not only will you have the opportunity to connect as a couple, but you’ll also become connected to the exquisite flavours of Occitanie food in a setting that matches your mood.

As part of our service, we’ll assist you in securing reservations at the most sought-after restaurants, ensuring a perfect and hassle-free culinary end to your evening.

Sunset Picnics with a French Twist

If you fancy a more laid-back experience in romantic France, what could be better than a sunset picnic? We can arrange a basket filled with local cheeses, freshly baked bread, and a bottle of the finest wine from our cellar – you wouldn’t expect anything else from the perfect holiday destination for children with wine-loving parents, would you?

There are many scenic spots to choose from. Whether it’s a quiet lakeside escape or a hidden glade you desire most for your picnic and visual feast, watch the sun drift behind the hills on the horizon, as the sky shifts through a rainbow of colours.

Cycling Tours for Two

Switching up through the gears, an evening spent exploring the local countryside by bicycle can be an intimate experience as well as exhilarating. We can suggest routes that are easy to navigate and simultaneously charming.

Indeed, an evening in the saddle could be a terrific way to experience romantic France with a new perspective, as you meander through quintessentially French villages and happen across scenic overlooks that are ideal opportunities for catching your breath as they take your breath away.

Visiting Local Vineyards for Wine Tasting

No visit to Occitanie is complete without sampling the local wines. How about taking an evening wine tasting tour in a local vineyard? Stroll through the vines, learn about wine production, and acquire the taste for different varieties of grapes as daylight turns to dusk. A serene and sensual experience, together and at one with nature in the atmospheric essence of romantic France.

Cultural Evenings in Occitanie

If you’re a couple who appreciates the arts, you’ll find local communities to be hotbeds of the Occitanie culture. From live music at quaint cafés to art exhibitions and open-air plays, such cultural evenings provide a real taste of local life – a delightful way to spend your evening before getting deeper into the spirit of Occitanie as an accompaniment to a delicious dinner.

Enjoy Romantic France with a Worry-Free Evening
