Where do celebrities go for a romantic getaway? To celebrate Valentine’s Day, Galavante tracked down love nests around the globe.

Where: Napa Valley, California

Who: Molly Sims, Robin Williams, and Christina Aguilera have all tied the knot here. All but one has lasted – but please don’t blame it on Napa.

Stay: Carneros Inn, Napa, thecarnerosinn.com

Valentine’s Day fun: Nothing says “romance” better than a three-hour feast at the restaurant étoile overlooking the gorgeous grounds of winery Domaine Chandon.

Where: Bora Bora, Tahiti

Who: Nicole Kidman married Keith Urban here, effectively and satisfyingly erasing any trace of Tom Cruise.

Stay: St. Regis Bora Bora, French Polynesia, stregisborabora.com

Valentine’s Day fun: At a minimum of 78°F, the blue lagoons of Bora Bora are perfect for skinny-dipping. Those who prefer to stay in-suite can pretend they’ve left by renting an epic overwater bungalow.

Where: Lake Como, Italy  

Who: George Clooney brings all of his women here. Ah, to be Stacy Keibler…

Stay: If George doesn’t extend an invite, stay at: Villa d’Este, Cernobbio, villadeste.it

Valentine’s Day fun: Pack a hamper full of vino and formaggi for a romantic picnic at La Punta Spartivento.

Where: Paris, France  

Who: Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes have amour for Paree, as do Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.

Stay: Hotel George V, Paris, fourseasons.com/paris

Valentine’s Day fun: Gaze at the Eiffel Tower, climb to the top of Montmartre, stroll through the Tuileries Garden. Whatever you choose, remember that Moulin Rouge does not say “love.”

And, finally:

Where: Maui, Hawaii  

Who: Hilary Duff, Mike Comrie, Megan Fox, and Brian Austin Green have all enjoyed the perfection of Maui – though not together. We don’t like to start rumors.

Stay: Four Seasons Resort Lanai at Manele Bay, Lana'i, fourseasons.com/manelebay

Valentine’s Day fun: See the sky explode with color on a magnificent sunset sail, or wait for a midday rainbow and make a wish…together. Aw.
