The Best Ski Chalets for a Romantic Getaway
Discover these five mountain retreats perfect for a romantic holiday for two.
We may be biased but is there a better way to spend a romantic holiday for two than in the mountains? The setting is the perfect place to get away from it all and spend time together. With crisp mountain air, snowy surroundings and inviting chalets to cosy up in, not to mention gourmet food and an abundance of activities to try both on and off the slopes, a mountain holiday is sure to spark a little romance. We have a fantastic selection of luxury honeymoon chalets to choose from but here are a few of our favourite romantic retreats.
1. Chalet Timeless, Courchevel 1850
Ideal for a keen skiing couple, Chalet Timeless is located at the foot of the Cospillot piste. Set over three floors, there is plenty of space to relax and enjoy each other's company. Much attention to detail has been paid to the design, with sumptuous furnishings and alpine-themed decor throughout. Curl up beside the fire on the sink-in sofa or enjoy an aperitif on the sunny balcony whilst admiring the mountain views.
When dinner time rolls around, enjoy each other's company in the luxury of your chalet or head to one of Courchevel 1850's Michelin-star restaurants for a special treat. Guests staying at Chalet Timeless also have access to a series of hotel facilities, including a spa with an indoor pool among other wellness facilities - an ideal way to relax after a day on the slopes.
2. Place Blanche 2, Verbier
At the opposite end of the scale, Place Blanche 2 is perfect for couples who want to be part of the action. Just steps away from the Medran piste and lift station, this chic apartment is conveniently located close to all the shops, bars and restaurants that Verbier has to offer.
Curl up in front of the fire together in the open plan living area or enjoy the inspiring mountain views from the south-facing terrace. The bedrooms are beautifully furnished but we particularly love the en-suite bathrooms. With an innovative glass roof in one bathroom, enjoy a spot of stargazing whilst you relax in the free-standing tub.
Place Blanche 2 comes fully serviced with a 24-hour in-resort chauffeur service, private chef and host.
3. Gemsstock Suite, Andermatt
Part of The Chedi, Gemsstock Suite is perfect for extravagant couples looking to enjoy the service and facilities of a five-star hotel whilst having the privacy and independence of their own 134 m² apartment.
The living room is separated from the bathroom by a stunning double-sided fireplace with a flat-screen TV mounted above. Doors open onto a balcony with wonderful views of the surrounding peaks.
Perfect for relaxing, couples can enjoy a dip in the 35-metre indoor swimming pool, work up a sweat in the gym and rejuvenate in the sauna or Tibetan Relaxation lounge. There are also several exquisite restaurants to sample including a Michelin-star Japanese restaurant with a sushi and sashimi bar and tempura and teppanyaki counter. In winter months the Chedi has its own ice rink so get practising those pirouettes.
4. Chalet Wellness Paradise, Val di Fiemme
With a romantic setting in the spectacular Trentino Dolomites, Chalet Wellness Paradise offers a relaxing retreat within five minutes of the Lagorai ski area. Couples can curl up on the sofa in front of the fireplace with a glass of wine and gaze out at the jaw-dropping views. This traditional farmhouse has been renovated in a contemporary style yet still retains its traditional roots with its own wood-burning Stube (alpine stove).
Living up to its name, this is the perfect chalet to relax and recharge. Soak in the outdoor hot tub on the terrace which is heated to 35-degrees whilst enjoying spectacular views of the dazzling Dolomites before enjoying an al fresco dinner on the terrace if the weather is fine.
5. Mi Chalet, Alta Badia
This totally unique couples retreat was built in 2018 and is nestled in the heart of the Dolomites. With spectacular panoramic windows, Mi Chalet is bathed in sunlight and is the perfect spot from which to admire the mesmerizing sunsets the Dolomites are renowned for.
Curl up beside the feature fireplace in winter or in summer take a dip in the heated outdoor swimming pool.
Alta Badia is a fantastic destination in both summer and winter. Linked to the Sella Ronda you can enjoy one of the most famous ski tours in Italy whilst in summer there is fantastic hiking and biking on offer, plus several Michelin-star restaurants are on hand to fuel your days on the mountain.
