This time last year, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart were headed to Cannes for a romantic-albeit-working trip. But we all know no matter how blissful the Twilight lovebirds looked at the annual film fest, scandal was about to erupt later that summer! Womp womp. After everything they've been through, they're going to do it right and that means doing it UP this year. As in, sources tell The Sun Robsten's going to stay in a sweet suite at the luxe, French Riviera-facing Hotel du Cap that runs $7K a night!
In addition to enjoying their royal accommodations and working the festival, "they have their eye on doing a tour of the local museums, like the Picasso one in Antibes, and Renoir’s house," the insider says. But that's not all. From there, they'll go onto Provence, the French countryside, to visit vineyards and "camp in the grounds of these massive chateaus." Apparently, these plans stemmed from the couple deciding "they need some 'normal living'." Ha!
Okay, let's be real. There's nothing "normal" about an insanely expensive trip like this. But at the same time, I say, good for them!
We tend to underestimate the power of a romantic getaway. Sometimes, there's nothing better to bolster your own mental/emotional health and, in turn, relationship, no matter what shape it's in. Spending time alone, away from the daily grind (and/or away from a challenging living situation, like it sounds Robsten has right now) is something we tend to think of as a luxury, but it's so necessary to keep your relationship healthy and happy.
Just being away for our wedding in Florida gave my husband and me a wonderfully refreshing respite from our usual routine. We're headed to Hawaii next for our honeymoon, and while it's definitely a once-in-a-lifetime splurge, I also feel like one-on-one time in paradise is going to be an investment into well-being -- our own and our marriage's.
Let's hope this trip to France affords Robsten the same, so they can come back to the States with better chances of making it last than the last time.
