A Romantic Five-Star Getaway in Paris
20 January 2015
Celebrate Valentine's Day with Italian Fine-Dining and Indulgent Treats in Luxury Surroundings
Though there is no city quite as romantic as Paris, the tradition of Valentine's Day is said to have originated from Rome, when a priest named Valentine defied the law at the time and continued to marry young couples in love. Take the opportunity to celebrate February the 14th in the 'City of Love' and indulge in delicious Italian fine-dining with Hotel de Vigny's exclusive offer. With rates from just €466, the ultimate Valentine's celebration combines a two night stay at one of the finest five-star hotels in the capital with gourmet dinner at the renowned Italian restaurant Penati al Baretto.
Italian Fine Dining in Paris
Though Italian cuisine is well-known in Paris, Italian fine dining is much harder to find. After cutting his teeth under the guidance of world-class chefs and establishing the famous private club '5 Hertford Street' in Mayfair, which welcomed Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge, Chef Alberico Penati had his sights set on wowing France's capital. He opened the doors of Penati Al Baretto in March 2014, offering contemporary culinary creations inspired by traditional Italian cuisine to an eagerly awaiting city. His gourmet dishes are made with the finest of ingredients from Italy with the aim of 'using the produce of today to recreate the exciting flavours of the past'. Promising to take you on a taste tour of his home country, examples from his current menu include an antipasti of sea scallops carpaccio with small chopped vegetables caponata and Alba white truffle dressing, followed by Cesani's Tuscan saffron risotto for the first course and a cut of Frisona beef from Marches with small lentils and spicy fried herbs for a main. Chocolate is always an added bonus on Valentine's Day and desserts available include a crispy chocolate mousse with Tonda Gentile hazelnuts, alongside a "Domori" three chocolate light mousse. Located within Hotel de Vigny at 9-11 Rue Balzac, this delicious dining experience is included for two on February the 14th in the Valentine's Day offer.
Luxury Romantic Stay
