Everyone’s favorite royal couple managed to squeeze in some alone time before starting to tour again. Prince William and Kate Middleton were spotted in France spending their time relaxing together, reading and sunbathing.  As reports, today, the royal couple starts their Asian tour in Singapore as a part of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.  But they made sure to get in a romantic vacation before the work started up again, and the Provence region of France was a great place to do just that.

What are some relaxing and romantic vacations to go on as a couple?

Cupid’s Advice:

When you and your partner need to get away, what better way to de-stress and unwind than a romantic vacation? Cupid has some advice on the best vacation spots to go as a couple:

1. If you like the beach: Don’t try to go somewhere that is overcrowded, or the relaxation part of your vacation won’t really work out.  If you’re looking for a private, romantic beach scene, try Islamorada, Florida. With the beautiful scenery of jungle-like plants and a clean, white beach, Islamorada has been the backdrop for countless photo shoots, and would be a great getaway spot for you and your partner.

2. If you like the ski-slopes:  If you and your partner are snow lovers with a passion for skiing, you should check out Beaver Creek, Colorado for your next getaway. The downhill slopes attract all types of skiers, and the beautiful log cabin is a great place to relax with some hot cocoa by the fire.

3. If you are a tourist at heart: Traveling to another country would be a great vacation for any couple who likes to experience new cultures and take in the scenery.  Rome, Italy is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, and has countless hours of destinations to visit.  Take a cooking class, have a glass of wine, and relax with your partner in the beautiful setting of Italy.
