Below we talk you through the very best romantic spots in Courchevel, so you can treat your partner to the trip of a lifetime.
Sunrise Atop the Piste
First of all, there’s really nothing more rewarding or romantic than wrapping in before dawn and taking a gentle stroll to the top of the piste of your choice. Take along a flask of hot chocolate…or perhaps a bottle of Champagne if you prefer…and find yourself that perfect spot from which to watch the most romantic and perfectly private sunrise you’ll ever be privileged to. And of course, you can also take your gear with you to ski down afterwards, if you fancy.
Hot Wine at Peupliers
Located in Le Praz, this place has a pretty unrivalled reputation for its extraordinary hot wine and the kind of cosy atmosphere that’s almost too cosy to believe. It’s the perfect picture postcard setting for a relaxing hour or two in the evening, or the perfect escape should the weather not exactly be on your side.
One of the best ways of completely escaping the crowds and enjoying a few moments of absolute tranquillity is to strap on a pair of snow shoes and head out for a walk in the forest. You’ll discover beautiful hidden villages, incredible spots for picnics and perhaps have the odd rendezvous with a few local critters, making it the perfect activity if you’re looking for romantic spots in Courchevel.
Weather permitting and depending on the time of year you decide to go, you may have the opportunity to indulge in a quite breathtaking hot air balloon ride. Rest assured that this is exactly the kind of experience you cannot even begin to comprehend until you have actually experienced it first-hand. Suffice to say, when it comes to the most spectacular views you’ll ever lay eyes on and true romance on an entirely new level, it’s beyond compare.
For an afternoon of pure pampering, get yourselves to the Chabichou Spa in 1850 which is undoubtedly one of the most exclusive and downright stunning in the entire country. All treatments and facilities are world-class, so too is the Chabotté restaurant where it’s highly recommended you head when you’ve had quite enough of being spoiled well and truly rotten.
Last but not least, be sure to set aside enough time to fully revel in the delights of your own luxuriously catered ski chalet, where talented chefs and superstar service staff bring a world of opulent delights quite literally to your doorstep. Suffice to say, it’s all the comfort of home injected with something truly spectacular.
