If you are looking for an indulgent mountain break, during which you can enjoy some sumptuous spa and wellbeing action alongside your skiing, Les Menuires’ Yogi Ski Week could be the answer. Perfect for a romantic getaway, you can improve your spirit, body and mind in the mountains in the heart of the extensive Three Valleys winter sports area. |
You may not have heard of Les Menuires but if you are keen on winter sports, love French fine-dining restaurants and exclusive world-class spas, then you really should have. Set in the heart of the Three Valley’s 600km of pistes, just below Val Thorens, Les Menuires is the exclusive area’s best kept secret.
A great resort for beginners and intermediates, the slopes which surround it are a sea of inviting blues and slightly more challenging reds. Those looking for a little more fast-paced action, of course, have the entire Three Valley’s area to explore with its excellent range of advanced skiing.
The area has a great number of mountain restaurants where you can take a break from the slopes, many of which serve traditional Savoyard cuisine to you beside a romantic roaring log fire. If you are looking for somewhere special for a dinner for two, then try K, the elegant restaurant of the Hotel Kaya.
Round off your romantic yoga/skiing break with a pampering spa visit to one of the resort’s three spas (I would personally recommend the Les Clarines Residence or the Spa Chalet at Reberty, both of which have heated swimming pools, saunas and treatment rooms).
Embrace Wellbeing at the Yogi Ski Week
For the ultimate romantic winter sports break, time it to coincide with Les Menuires’ Yogi Ski Week (14-20 April). Treat yourself and your partner to a variety of pampering treatments which will soothe both your body and your mind as part of this free week of workshops, treatments and talks.
The organisers aim to show that there’s more to do in the resort than just skiing. Les Menuires’ central Croissette will be a hive of wellbeing activity with experts offering a series of treatments, classes and workshops, concentrating on everything from meditation and massage to aromatherapy and yoga. There will even be a chance to practice yoga out on the mountainside, combining the inspiration of the stunning views and fresh air with the poses and stretches of Hatha and other forms of yoga.
Things to look forward to on Yogi Ski Week:
• Sophrology – a special relaxation technique to harmonise body and mind • Yoga – with an emphasis on managing stress and relaxation • Hatha Yoga – yoga concentrating on key poses and pranayama breathing • Do-in – A form of self-massage based on shiatsu
A week of indulgence, self awareness, relaxation and skiing, Les Menuires’ Yogi Ski Week is the ultimate wellbeing break this spring. Add to that the romantic setting of the snow-capped French Alps and the excellent accommodation and dining options and this could make the ideal romantic gift for a loved one looking for something a little out of the ordinary.
