Why is Paris considered such a romantic destination? Because of all the beautiful Parisians? Possibly. Because it has seen so many love stories in the past? Maybe. Because it's such a beautiful city? Sure! There are many reasons why the world sees Paris as the ultimate city for romance, passion, affairs, and flings. But one that often stands out is that, despite how crowded of a place it is, there are still some parts of Paris that are quiet and intimate. Who knows what kind of romantic rendezvous you can get away with if you escape here? Especially on Valentine's Day!
One of the most beautiful parks in Paris
, Parc Monceau is definitely a perfect escape for an intimate Valentine's Day date. Located in the 8th arrondissement of Paris
, it's actually one of the quieter spots in the city. It helps that it's not as famous as the likes of the Tuileries or Jardin du Luxembourg either. When others think of 'Paris park,' very rarely does Parc Monceau come to mind. And this isn't necessarily a bad thing. This gives lovers a chance to revel in the botanical bliss that this magical park offers. From the secret gardens to the hidden columns, there are lots of places you can hide here.

It's actually a good thing that Cité Florale, one of the more underrated spots in Paris
, isn't all that popular. At least, for those who want to step away from all the hustle and bustle of the French capital, they can escape here and relax in peace. Though it's located in the 13th arrondissement of Paris
, this residential neighborhood feels so separate from the rest of the area that it almost feels like it is its own mini arrondissement. Its countryside charm, provincial ambiance, and of course, the peace and quiet here are second to none. If you and your partner can score a Paris luxury home
here, you can enjoy the idyllic married life!

Tucked away in a quiet corner of the often-bustling Montmartre district
, Hôtel Particulier Montmartre is a peaceful oasis of classic elegance and first-class service. Hundred-year-old trees and thick, overgrown shrubberies hide this old Paris townhouse-turned-boutique hotel from the rest of the city, letting only a few lucky ones enjoy the novelty of their old-school hospitality. Some of them even include celebrities, politicians, and other famous figures. An overnight stay or even just enjoying afternoon tea here during Valentine's Day would likely be one of the most memorable dates you'll spend in Paris.

Square du Vert-Galant
Though it's technically a public square, Square du Vert-Galant is anything but public, or rather, popular. Located on Île de la Cité
, this place is near the world-famous Notre Dame, where most of the tourists' attention is at. So while others go gaga over the iconic Gothic-style church, very few notice this botanical oasis of a public square in this part of the city. But that's what makes it so perfect for couples looking to spend some quality time together on Valentine's Day. They can enjoy a quiet and serene stroll date or even a picnic
without having to face numerous crowds and noise.

Perched atop the streets of Paris's 12th arrondissement
, Promenade Plantée is an elevated park that not a lot of people go through. Though many pass through here to get to their own destinations, very few actually spend time in this nature-filled walkway. But you know what? It's their loss! For you, especially on Valentine's Day, you can take your special someone here and enjoy the botanical bliss and the amazing views this site offers. You truly won't find a place quite like it in Paris, no matter how many neighborhoods in the city
you've gone through!
