Celebrating Valentine's Day in Santa Fe

The Madeleine Bed & Breakfast Inn is the perfect place to wow your sweetheart this Valentine's Day, or any time of the year you might be inspired to rekindle your romance.  The 1886 Queen Anne architecture, complete with stained glass and ornately carved fireplaces, creates an ideal amorous backdrop.

Enhance the mood with a couples treatment at the Balinese-inspired Absolute Nirvana Spa, located in the back garden of The Madeleine.  They are offering a Valentine's Spa Special throughout the month of February.  This couples treatment begins with a Master's Massage in a candlelit room as you are both drenched with warm oils permeated with rose and chocolate essence.  Following your massages, slip into a hand-carved granite tub, filled with the petals of two dozen red roses, a fire burning at your feet, as you nibble on tropical fruits and homemade chocolate truffles.

After your blissful time in the spa, head out to one of Santa Fe's many fine restaurants.  If your stay coincides with Valentine's Day itself, there are several restaurants offering dining specials.  The Old House Restaurant is featuring a four-course 'Aphrodisiac Menu' which includes oysters, lobster tail, New York steak, fresh strawberries and chocolate.  The price for this is a reasonable $119 per couple, or $149 if a wine pairing menu is chosen.  Their Valentine's Day menu will be served from February 14-17.  Reservations are highly recommended, and may be made by phoning 505.995.4530.

Another top pick for a romantic meal is Santacafe, located just a few blocks from The Madeleine in an historic adobe compound.  The casually elegant setting consists of four intimate, candlelit rooms and is a lovely atmosphere in which to savor the delicious menu of contemporary American and Southwestern cuisine.  Again, reservations are recommended - call Santacafe at 505.984.1788.
