Pristine white slopes, cosy log fires and outdoor Jacuzzis. You’d be hard pressed to find a more romantic setting than an alpine ski resort.
Forget Valentine’s day flowers or chocolate boxes, what makes a bigger statement of love than a luxury romantic ski holiday?
To really impress on your special day, a romantic ski chalet for two makes for the ultimate Valentine’s day surprise. Romantic ski holidays for couples are the most luxurious way to make your loved ones’ Valentine’s day wishes come true.
This is what makes the Alps a perfect setting for Valentine’s day.
The Most Romantic Ski Resorts in Europe
The Alps is home to some of the most romantic ski resorts in Europe, if not the world. Renowned ski areas with pistes for all abilities and charming resort villages make for a truly romantic break.
Here are some of the best;
Making Memories in Meribel
As one of the prettiest resorts in France, Meribel in the Three Valleys is a delightful destination for a special Valentine.
The village is made up of wooden buildings in the traditional Savoyard style. A chocolate box town just like the ones found nestled in a snow globe.
Located within the Vanoise national park, with breathtaking views of Mont Vallon, Meribel’s beauty is bound to get heart beats racing.
In addition to stunning vistas, Meribel has excellent skiing opportunities for all abilities. The wide Altiport slope is suited to beginners, while the off-piste and cross country tracks will satisfy the appetites of the most adventurous of skiers.
Even if you and your partner have different levels of skiing abilities, both can be easily catered for in Meribel.
The Charms of Courchevel
Courchevel is world famous as a luxury ski resort frequented by distinguished visitors. As part of the Three Valleys, the world’s largest linked ski area, Courchevel is a clever choice for ski-obsessed couples.
A lift pass will grant you access to over 300 runs served by modern ski lifts and the high altitude of the resort boasts reliable snow cover long into the season.
The draw for couples is the luxurious atmosphere and stylish après scene. Browsing designer boutiques and dining in exquisite restaurants is guaranteed to wow loved ones for a Valentine’s to remember.
Private Couples Skiing Lessons
Fresh mountain air and stunning alpine views are a perfect setting for romance. Taking a couples skiing lesson is a great way to spend quality time with your loved one and brush up on your skiing technique at the same time.
Meribel has exceptional ski schools offering private coaching to skiers of all abilities. Many ski companies also offer extra activities such as torchlit descents and snow sports for a day full of fun on the slopes.
Discreet, professional ski instructors can help perfect your skills or support beginners on their skiing journey. Learning something new is a great bonding experience and the laughs you’ll have will be remembered for years to come.
Once you’ve mastered the basics, the slopes offer a wide expanse of slopes for some rare alone time.
A Romantic Catered Meal
Although Meribel and Courchevel have plenty of five-star restaurants to explore, sometimes you just want to spend time with that special someone.
A catered dining experience in a luxury ski chalet offers the privacy and intimate ambience for a romantic Valentines meal. Alpine Infusion’s luxury chalets provide intricately prepared four-course evening meals, created by the best chefs in the region.
Carefully sourced ingredients, thoughtful wine pairings and dishes to lust over make for a very happy Valentine’s day.
When the aim is relaxing with your Valentine, cooking shouldn’t be on the menu. Instead, take advantage of the luxury catered experience and focus on the conversation.
A Private Hot Tub Experience
A romantic break with a hot tub included is up there when it comes to amorous experiences.
Luxurious spa treatments are a fantastic way to relax, recharge and reconnect. From couples’ massages and beauty treatments to soaking in a Jacuzzi after a long day on the slopes, a chilled-out state of mind is a recipe for romance.
When staying in an Alpine Infusion luxury chalet, spa treatments can be arranged to come to you in your own massage room. With swimming pools, saunas and Jacuzzis, an Alpine infusion holiday will leave you both feeling pampered and relaxed.
Leave the Finer Details to the Professionals
To make the most of your romantic ski holiday, opting for luxury chalet accommodation means you won’t have to lift a finger when it comes to the practical stuff.
A holiday for Valentine’s day is all about spending uninterrupted quality time with your better half. Chores like making restaurant bookings, getting to the resort, and arranging lessons and ski passes are all taken care of by a team of expert staff.
This leaves you with more time to gaze lovingly into each other’s eyes!
If it isn’t possible to leave the little ones at home, childcare can be arranged, leaving you with a rare night alone to hit the town.
