Guethary is now on the map.  The little French village with a population of 1,600 was the recent vacation spot for Madonna and her much-younger dancer boyfriend Brahim Zaibat last Tuesday for two weeks, according to People.  The couple was spotted Wednesday morning in matching exercise gear biking on the village’s cycling paths before meeting with her 14 year-old daughter Lourdes at a beach close to the village port.  Still, the biggest question remains to be answered is, why Guethary?  “We have three hotels, six small restaurants and no nightclub,” said a representative from the local tourist office. “We’re known for our three surfing beaches, but besides from that there’s nothing. Only reason she would come here for … is … is the quiet.”

Cupid’s Advice:

Sometimes it’s nice to have some time away from rest of the world with your partner.  Cupid has a few getaway ideas:

1. Go camping: There’s no better way than to be surrounded by nature with your lover. Just remember to pack bug spray and the fixings for s’mores.

2. Book a hotel: It doesn’t have to be far from home, but book a suite for a weekend and shut off your phones and computers. Spend a lazy two days in bed, on walks and in restaurants.

3. Avoid major cities: Avoid any obvious vacation choices, such as big cities or beaches seen on the Corona commercials. Chances are they’ve been commercialized are super touristy. Try to think of something out of the box.
