Suzanne was amazing! I utilized the layaway service and it was a breeze. Ring made its way to Texas and was even more gorgeous in person."

Beautiful Lakes and Islands

3.  Annecy - French Alps

Known as the "Venice of the Alps," Annecy is a charming and picturesque town with canals, a beautiful lake, and stunning mountain scenery. A proposal along the canals or on the shores of Lake Annecy would be memorable.


4. Île Saint-Louis - Paris

This charming island in the Seine River is known for its narrow streets, historic buildings, and romantic ambiance. Stroll along the riverbanks or have a quiet moment in one of the parks.


Outdoor Locations to Propose in France

France is full of romantic gardens, palaces, and fields. These are some especially romantic locations for a proposal on a romantic walk, viewing palaces or enjoying a glass of wine or champagne in a secluded spot for the perfect proposal.

5.  Palace of Versailles - Versailles

The opulent Palace of Versailles and its beautiful gardens offer numerous romantic settings for a proposal. You can consider proposing in the Hall of Mirrors or amidst the beautifully landscaped gardens.


6. Lavender Fields - Provence

The lavender fields in Provence are not only visually stunning but also incredibly fragrant. Consider proposing during the blooming season when the fields are at their most colorful and aromatic.


7.  Château de Chenonceau - Indre-et-Loire

This elegant château spans the Cher River and offers a unique setting for a proposal. Consider popping the question on the arched bridge over the river or within the château's beautiful interior.


8. Bordeaux

Bordeaux is one of the most famous wine regions in the world, known for its vineyards, historic châteaux, and exquisite wines. You can propose in a vineyard, at a renowned château, or even during a wine tasting tour.


9.  Pont des Arts - Paris

The "Love Lock Bridge" offers a romantic backdrop for a proposal. While attaching a love lock may no longer be allowed due to safety concerns, the bridge itself remains a symbol of love in the heart of Paris.


10.  Giverny - Normandy

Visit the gardens that inspired Claude Monet's famous paintings. Propose in the enchanting water lily gardens or amidst the colorful flower beds. Start your day by visiting Monet's Garden, which is one of the most iconic and picturesque places in Giverny. You can stroll through the beautiful gardens filled with water lilies, Japanese bridges, and vibrant flowers. Find a quiet spot in the garden to get down on one knee and pop the question.
