I received this charming email the other day. Anyone have any ideas to share?
I found your blog while researching food and restaurants in Provence. I'm in need of some serious recommendations. I will be proposing to my girlfriend during our trip to France this summer. We'll be spending our time all over Provence (Marseilles, Cannes, St. Tropez, The Luberon, etc.) and also on Corsica. I'd love to propose to her in either Provence or Corsica, but I want it to be unique and one-of-a-kind. I want to find that perfect place that just "sets the stage" for the most romantic proposal. I want her engagement to be so memorable that no other will ever compare. Do you have any recommendations on where to propose in either Provence or Corsica? The perfect restaurant, or natural setting, or experience? I have a solid budget, but I'm am more concerned about the uniqueness of the setting.
Some current ideas are the cactus garden in Eze, a hot air balloon ride in the Luberon or in Bonifacio, Corsica. I'm leaning towards a place on the coast because she loves the ocean, but it's much more about the uniqueness of the experience/location. I'm really trying to find a place that I could not find on my own with just internet research. I hate the term "off-the-beaten-track" but I guess that's the best description...although I'm open to a more "touristy" location if there is a special experience I can arrange there. Thank you in advance for any advice you can provide!
