Happy Valentine’s Day!
February 14th is only a month away, and that means Valentine’s Day is peeking flirtatiously around the corner. A romantic getaway (or a card announcing one for a future date) is a great way to show your special someone how much you care on Valentine’s Day, or any time throughout the year. And although Time & Place is well-known for our grand large luxury vacation villas, perfect for entertaining the whole crew, we also have a carefully curated selection of intimate offerings that are just the thing to delight your valentine. Here are a few of our favorite spots, and some suggestions for making the most of a romantic holiday.
St. Bart’s (Saint-Barth, St. Barthélemy, St. Barth’s)
The French practically invented l’amour, and this exclusive French enclave is picture-perfect whether you’re popping the question or just popping the champagne. Both sun and celebrities shine on the island’s 22 powdery beaches (all public!) so you may find yourself canoodling next to the likes of Cindy Crawford, Jake Gyllenhaal or Jay-Z. Glamorous and glitzy, St. Bart’s is perfect for couples who love the see-and-be-seen vibe, shopping, and amazing restaurants. There’s also sailing, snorkeling and simply saying “I love you” under sunny skies.
There’s so much to do, but you may find yourself not wanting to leave your romantic retreat! On the northeastern peninsula, La Belle Epoque has a charming terrace and private pool. It is located next to the five-star Le Guanahani Hotel & Resort, between Marigot and Grand Cul-de-Sac Bays. Write “Be My Valentine” in the sand and make a memory (and a photo) to cherish forever.
Other intimate St. Bart’s villas include Letchi, located between Shell and Gouverneur Beaches and featuring ocean views and a private Jacuzzi. There is also sleek Alphane, which has stunning views and its own infinity pool. Also, we do have a number of larger villas that are available to be rented as one-bedrooms. You’ll have the entire property (except for the locked-off additional bedrooms) all to yourselves.

Nantucket is for Lovers
Historic, quaint and quirky, the charming island of Nantucket offers an easy, All-American Valentine’s getaway. Nantucket is especially convenient for couples on the East Coast, even in the off-season. This means you can search for shells on windswept shores, take a sunset sail, or explore the cobblestone streets on a bicycle built for two. The sea generously provides a bounty of lobster and other deep-water delicacies that have made Nantucket a culinary destination. Fortunately, Time & Place has three delightfully intimate apartments in Nantucket, all right on the harbor and all with cozy fireplaces and soothing seaside decor. Take a look at Water’s Edge, Ebb and Flow and Hermit Crab today.
Parisian Perfection For Your Perfect Valentine
Paris is for perfect for Valentine’s Day or in any season. Sidewalk cafes, strolls by the Seine, embraces under the Eiffel Tower … it’s the ultimate city of romance for a reason. Fortunately, we have intimate luxury vacation apartments all over the city. Luscious Latin Quarter Luxe has a fireplace, opulent furnishings, and a deep soaking tub. Baroque Quai du Louvre offers a round King bed and an amazing bath with frescoed ceilings and a free-standing spoon tub. Sleek Saint Germain Pied-a-Terre is elegant and perched above an art gallery in one of the city’s chicest arrondissements. And if you might be shopping (perhaps for an engagement or anniversary ring, ahem), Elegant Champs-Elysees is only a two-minute walk from the world-famous jewelers of the Place Vendôme.
