How To Date A Billionaire

If you were organising a date with a billionaire in Europe, where would you take him? It would be a little hard to compete in the ‘I’ll impress you’ stakes as he could whip you off to Paris in his private jet (this is what Nic, the hero of my latest release – Tempted by the Billionaire Tycoon – does with my heroine Poppy). 

So it got me thinking….where would I take a billionaire if I was organising a date that was full of romance but on a realistic budget?

The walking date: I’d arrange to meet my billionaire in Monterosso, one of the five villages in the Italian Cinque Terre. We’d have a lovely, early breakfast in Monterosso and then walk along the coast through the four other villages of Vernazza, Corneglia, Manarola and finally Riomaggiore. Of course we’d enjoy lots of gelato along the way and finish the day watching the sunset while sipping limoncello

The cycling date:  I’d meet my billionaire as he stepped out of his limo with a couple of bikes in the town of Versailles.  We’d cycle through the famous Versailles Palace gardens and then enjoy a picnic of fresh baguettes, cheese and wine at the end of the ornamental lake taking in the palace vista

The midnight date: After a casual dinner at one of the cute bars (that had a view of the famed Charles Bridge) on the shore of Vltava River, we’d walk through the old town square as Prague’s medieval astronomical clock struck midnight

The floating date: I’d buy a couple of tickets on the ferry that crosses the Monte Carlo harbour. We’d enjoy a sneaky champagne while enjoying the view of the super yachts and the opulence and glamour of Monte Carlo.

Where would you take your billionaire for a romantic budget date?

  1. Hi Jennifer

    All of those dates sound awesome :) I would like to stay in the Scottish Highlands in a cabin with a veiw to the mountains and lots of champange

    Congrats on the book it is such a great story I loved it :)

    Have Fun

  2. Ack! Forget the billionaire, Jen, I'll be your date on any of those!

  3. Jenn, for a budget date then a hill overlooking the beach for a moonlit supper! Love the sound of the sea and there'd be nothing to distract from getting to know each other.
    Good luck with the new book!

    1. Thanks so much, Annie.

      I love the sound of the sea too. I go to sleep listening to it every night.

  4. Those dates sound like fun.

    As for me, I'd arrange a simple date like a picnic in the park or fish and chips at the beach. The kinds of things that I'd do with an ordinary man - a billionaire has lots of money but they're still human.

    1. Exactly, Lyn. They are still human and feel just like we do. Love fish and chips at the beach. We did that just a few days ago.

  5. Oh and Amazon are pests because the link in the post shows as available in NZ, despite that issue when the book came out.
    Still looking forward to reading Tempted though

    1. I know, Lyn. So annoying. I spoke to Amazon and they are supposedly sorting it out, but it has been days, so I will contact them again.

  6. All of your dates sound delectable, Jen, but especially that walking date.

    I'm with, Lyn…fish and chips (and Moet) at the beach would top my list. If I were in Europe, though, I'd take him to the football and then the pub afterwards. It'd be fun to see a billionaire in the cheap seats rather than his own box. ;-)

  7. I love walking, Michelle. Especially in beautiful places like Cinque Terre.

    You pub dates sounds perfect!

  8. I wouldn't take him anywhere, we would stay in for a romantic dinner and drinks on the balcony overlooking the city. And of course there would be a decadent dessert!

  9. Love the sound of your date ides, Jen! Especially the walking date - that's my favourite kind :)

    Definitely a picnic in a beautiful garden - a nice bottle of wine, some cheese and fruit. Simple but perfectly romantic!

  10. I love walking too, Stefanie. Especially when there is a beautiful view to enjoy.

  11. Fabulous budget date ideas, Jen! My thoughts for a budget date would be a day exploring one of the great 4Wdrive tracks in Victoria. With a picnic lunch of homemade goodies under gum trees by a billabong... and probably spend a good part of the time shooing away the flies! Though, hang on, this is fantasy so I think the flies will magically stay away!
