Nothing is better for getting the heart pounding than hitting the slopes with your special someone. A snowy-cold ski in the Alps is perfect for firing up the sparks of passion with your other half. Finding the right place for a romantic skiing break together can be tricky, but there are many options available, so check out our guide to the top 3 French ski resorts for that ultimate combination of snow, spa and sunset for two.
Ideal for a smaller, cosier break, La Tania is one of the youngest French ski resorts, but also one of the most stunning. Its beautiful tree-lined setting has many gorgeous routes to explore together, away from the hubbub found at other slopes. After a day of pine-scented skiing, gently glide back into town where you can spend your evenings in one of its many warm bars, chatting over steaming glasses of gluhwein, while the rest of the world blissfully passes you by.
For that extra special touch, La Tania is also home to the Michelin Star restaurant Le Farçon, offering exquisite food by candlelight and an unforgettable dining experience.
Of all the French ski resorts, Courchevel offers the most variety for couples to enjoy. There is great shopping, with designer labels such as Prada, Gucci and Ralph Lauren in town. As well as that, there is the indulgent Chabichou Spa, providing world-class pampering and all the soothing your hearts could ever need.
Courchevel also boasts some of this region’s finest views, and there are many ways to take it in. You can catch a balloon ride and really ride on top of the world together; or you can take one of the many forest walks in the area and escape from the rest of the crowd. To really make the most of your time in the mountains, get out onto the piste early in order to catch the sunrise. The snow is perfect for soaking up the golden morning glow –you’ll find it hard to tell if you’re awake or still dreaming.
Méribel breathes the spirit of romance, with luxury accommodation, private hot tubs and a surplus of bars for enjoying the après ski. For dining of the highest quality, book a table for two at Chez Kiki, where the food will win over not only your stomachs but also your hearts.
Outside the village, you can take a horse-drawn sleigh ride and go dashing through the snow, taking in the landscape side-by-side. Then, to cap it all off, head to La Roc Tania for its sunset views and a magical moment you’ll remember forever.
All of these French ski resorts are located in the Three Valleys, and while each offer something slightly different, all can guarantee a truly romantic getaway. And getting away is the easiest part: Ski Amis can offer just the luxury break you’re searching for. Take a look at some of the packages they have available, and we’ll start chilling the champagne.
