Nobody sets romance into photos and décor like the French.  So naturally, when you’re looking for a romantic getaway, a honeymoon destination, or a valentines weekend option, you need a place that has that certain  ‘Je ne sais quoi’ as the French would say.

“What does je ne sais quoi mean? Je ne sais quoi literally means “I don’t know what” in French. The phrase was borrowed into English as an expression of a quality that makes something or someone attractive, distinctive, or special in some way, but is hard to put into words.” –

But if you’re not in France…?  Well South Africa also has a lot of amazing romantic places to stay.
