Top Ten Valentine's Day Destinations

It's really difficult for me to decide on my favourite Valentine's Day treat. Maybe High Tea at the Windsor Hotel, Melbourne:

Or a picnic on the banks of the Seine, low-key but nonetheless highly romantic:

Visiting the Hall of Mirrors at Versailles is to surround yourself with a vision of romance and beauty:

The view from Cortona in Tuscany is breathtakingly romantic and the food is unsurpassed :

Balthazar's in New York is where you feel like you're in France, but you're in New York so it's fantastic anyway:

The Chateau les Reynats outside Perigueux has the most spectacular food this side of a Michelin star and the waiters are sweethearts:

Villa del Balbianello on Lake Como is so romantic that James Bond went there to recuperate while in love with Vesper Lynd in "Casino Royale":

This table for two in the cafe at the pink villa of Beatrice Ephrussi de Rothschild on the French Riviera has a view which is one of the most romantic in the world:

The White House at Daylesford is my favourite romantic destination in Australia. This bed makes you want to jump in immediately:

Le Grand Colbert in Paris is so romantic that it was the setting for the reunion in "Something's Gotta Give". And the "best roast chicken in the universe" really is:

Or maybe I'll just sit at home with my special valentine and ponder this view:

Happy Valentine's Day wherever you are!

yes i'd take any and all of the above....
the one i think tugged at my heart and made me smile the most was the little table for two above the french riviera...for some reason water & a cruising european boat do it for me every time!
