Lille is said to be a proper hidden gem – and it’s true! This lovely city in the north of France is the perfect place for a romantic escape for just the two of you. :)

Valentine’s Day in Lille

The gorgeous old town is filled to the brim with sights, cafés and restaurants, and the architecture reveals a lot of Belgian influence – and some of the buildings really are drop-dead gorgeous! I was looking around on Trivago and Skyscanner and put together this lovely city break for Valentine’s Day, so it’ll be a great surprise for your other half. :)

The deal comes with your return flights from Dublin to Brussels International, which is just a two hour train ride away. The flights I’ve included in the price/screenshots aren’t the cheapest ones, but they do mean that you won’t be arriving or leaving at ridiculous hours!

You’ve also got 3 nights at the Mercure Lille Centre Vieux, located just a stone’s throw away from the historic centre of the city. I love the design of it – there’s plenty of awesome retro touches everywhere! Meanwhile in Lille there’ll be plenty to keep you busy. Soak up the flair at a street-side café or cosy patisserie, explore the winding streets or check out the dozens of museums, shops and restaurants. Rue Solférino is where a lot of the nightlife is located, but if you want a relaxed, local experience then try and book yourself a table at Au Vieux de la Ville.

This is a city that I definitely recommend checking out – just click the links below to book your hotel and flights separately. :)
