The Alps were made for romance. There is no better place for a stealthy kiss than on a restaurant terrace, watching the sun set behind a snowy peak. Couples holidaying in the mountains can enjoy sports activities, shopping and pampering in spas. For lovebirds young and old, choosing the right resort with the best opportunities for romance can be a challenge. Here are three of the very best which are sure to suit every couple. |
La Tania is perched between the Courchevel and Meribel resorts, in the Three Valleys ski region of the French Alps. It is less expensive and glitzy than its neighbours, but no less charming. The smaller, cosier setting lends itself to some of the most romantic experiences in the Alps. Visitors enjoy fine dining at the Michelin Star restaurant, Le Farçon where head chef Julien Machet cooks with his Savoyard heritage on his sleeve, delighting diners for over 10 years. With everything in La Tania just a stone’s throw away, the resort is perfect for those looking to maximise relaxation and minimise walking.
Opulence is order of the day in Courchevel. While away from the beautiful luxury chalets that make up the resort, there are plenty of romantic distractions to try. One of the most dazzling is watching the sun set from atop your favourite piste. Bring gloves and a bottle of bubbly for toasting each other. For something even higher up, why not try a balloon ride. The view is even more spectacular than you imagine, enough to make your cry if the cold wind hasn’t already. Or, if you wish to keep your feet firmly on the ground, or rather in the jacuzzi, visit the Chabichou Spa for a day of massages and pampering.
Walking around Meribel, you feel like you are in a postcard. The picturesque setting is perfect for romance with couples returning year on year to sample its many romantic offerings. Diners enjoy sitting in La Roc Tania restaurant, watching the sun set over the Roc de Fer while drinking French wine and eating the finest alpine cuisine. On their way to Chez Kiki, the classiest restaurant in Meribel, visitors take a horse drawn sleigh, cuddling up with each other to keep warm under a thick blanket and with a cup of hot chocolate in their hands.
