Re: romantic get-aways

We really liked Burgundy and the Alsace. We rented a car so we could tour around at our own pace.

Paris is always nice and TGV is easy from Zurich, Basel or Geneva/Lausanne.

In CH, we went to Jungrau and stayed in Wengen. Gstaad is beautiful. Lots of great hotels in all of these places.

Good luck.

Our favorite weekend get-away in Burgundy is the Chateau de Vault de Lugny:

Quiet, calm, peaceful - and the restaurant is a delight.

Re: romantic get-aways

I really like it around Lake Como - We had a great week-end in this hotel http://www.centrohotelslakecomo.com/...omo_hotels.htm

You can get day-passes for the ferry boats and go to Varenna, Como, Bellagio, Lenno

After just getting back from a week on Lake Como I can certainly vouch also for here - if you have some serious cash look at Villa D'Este or the Grand Hotel Tremezzo - very nice

For Switzerland how about here

Yes, make sure the spouse doesn't find out about it...


The Hotel Belvedere in Scuol, with at least a half-day in the Irish-Roman Baths

Romantic, it would be, if you could get away from each other

A very good idea for a romantic get-away. We stayed in this small hotel not far from La Spezia

Re: romantic get-aways

Nearby...
I would probably go to the Wine Road in Alsace and stay in some cute little hotel in some cute little village and wander around the vineyards in between wine tastings and all the other romantic things that you might do...

Cinque Terra for sure

I preferred staying in Manarola. I know a cheap nice place there if you are ever interested.

Romantic get-away: Maggia Valley, Ticino, famous for its waterfalls!

Hi Gattiamore
> any recommendations for a romantic weekend away?
How about the romantic Casa alla Cascata (House by the Waterfall) in Maggia, Ticino? www.valle-maggia.ch (see photos...)
Best regards,
Tanya

What, alone, you mean?

KY Jelly on the sideboard, and a wide selection of, er, videos to watch?
