There’s not much that is more romantic than huddling together next to a roaring log fire with a view over snow-capped mountains and snow-dusted pine trees. So if you’re looking for something extra special to do this Valentine’s Day, why not jet off to one of France’s best-loved ski resorts? La Plagne, situated at the heart of the French Paradiski area, has plenty to offer couples beyond a great day out on the slopes. Think of sharing a mulled wine, a Champagne dinner set against a backdrop of stunning mountains and plenty of activities to keep you both enchanted throughout your stay.
Just a three-hour drive from Geneva Airport, ski transfers will be on hand to sweep you up the mountainside in chauffeur-driven comfort and drop you off at your luxury accommodation. Now all you need to do is choose from this list of inviting Valentine’s Day activities to enjoy at the resort... or maybe you’ll try them all!
A Spectacular Sunrise
Imagine having the mountains all to yourselves so that you can watch the sun break over the peaks at sunrise. With the First Tracks Experience at La Plagne, the lifts will be opened exclusively to a small group. Once you’ve reached the top of the Grande Rochette, you can delight in a delectable breakfast as you watch the sun come up, before enjoying the newly groomed slopes together.
Top Tip: For those who don’t like the thought of early rising, you could try Oxygene’s Moonlight Ski Experience, where you’ll watch the sunset and enjoy a fondue dinner before skiing back down by torchlight.
Cuddle up under a blanket as you travel across the snow in a sledge pulled by an eager team of dogs. The Husky Dog Sledding Experience is the stuff that memories are made of: you’ll glide through stunning landscapes in a way that feels perfectly in balance with the natural world around you. The dogs are all well cared for and your guide will happily introduce you to each one by name.
A Soothing Massage
Indulge in a day of pampering at one of La Plagne’s world-class luxury spas. Enjoy a couple’s treatment including champagne, or go for a deep tissue massage and feel years younger after just an hour. Or, if you don’t want to visit a spa, why not arrange for one of the British-chartered physiotherapists to visit you in your accommodation?
Dinner for Two
There are myriad romantic restaurants in La Plagne, but for your ultimate Valentine’s Day meal, head for Le Chalet des Verdons Sud above Champagny. Serving traditional Savoyard cuisine, the wooden-panelled interior with its roaring log fire is a great place for a secluded meal for two.
