In all honesty, there really is nowhere in the beautiful ski resort of Méribel that could not be described as romantic. From the fairy-tale chalets that line the charming winding streets to the fine dining restaurants, and from the vin chaud to the live music held in many a local bar, Méribel has something to fulfil everyone’s idea of romance. |
It is true that you don’t have to look too far in Méribel to experience a touch of the romantic but what, apart from the endless exhilaration of swooping down the slopes with your loved one, are the ultra romantic things to do when spending Valentine’s Day in Méribel?
Go For a Private Chalet
There are some top class chalet companies in Méribel offering luxury accommodation in abundance. And what could be more romantic than curling up in a log cabin style chalet in front of a roaring fire with only thoughts of where you might ski the next day and what your next tipple might be?
Many luxury chalets have incredible views of the surrounding peaks, which are stunning to wake up to. In fact, as long as you choose the right chalet, you really don’t even have to go outside at all to feel romantic.
Hot Tub Action
Pick a chalet with its own hot tub and you are in for a real treat. Your chalet staff might even serve the Champagne while you relax among the steam and the bubbles in your own private outdoor bath! With only the stars keeping an eye on you, you and your other half can do romance in style.
Head to The Adray Telebar
The best place in town for a cosy hot chocolate and piece of cake is the Adray Telebar. You can while away hours in this quaint local bar. Unctuous hot chocolate is served in huge jugs alongside decadent slices of something delicious, and, of course, there is the quintessential log fire to complete the picture.
The best part about this romantic find is that the whole thing only costs €5 a person and for some strange reason, perhaps because it is not right in town, this bar remains quiet and secluded.

A Table for Two
Chez Kiki in Méribel 1600 is the place to go for an authentic dining experience. Charming surroundings and excellent food is the perfect combination for a great evening touched with romance.

Cliché they might be, but sunsets are sure to get the romantic juices flowing. The best place in the area to watch the setting of the sun is at Le Roc Tania. Indulge in a sumptuous Irish coffee while watching the spectacle and enjoy being one of the last people to ski back into resort for the day. Who said romance was dead?
