Cosy Up By The Fire

It’s no surprise that skiing holidays are popular with couples and families alike and they have an ambience all their own when it comes to options for spending quality quiet time with your loved one. Imagine spending an hour or two in your own personal hot tub or sauna and then cuddling by the fire with some vin chaud (warm wine) and whiling away the hours.

A Snowy Backdrop
It’s no secret that many people find the concept of snow-topped mountains to be wildly romantic. For sure, it’s hugely romantic to cuddle up in front of a fire with your loved one and admire the snowy view – other chalets lit up across the snow and in the hills like tiny candles to bring the hills to life. In many events, situations exactly like this have been ideal moments to pop the question to that special person, or even just to celebrate a special birthday or moment. Many people even come on skiing vacations for their honeymoons, especially if they both enjoy getting outside and doing adventurous activities. Skiing holidays are perfect couples and families options with plenty of childcare available and fantastic apres ski entertainments to partake in. From wandering the small streets and cute taverns of the resort towns all the way up to just enjoying a quiet dinner in your chalet served by your chalet host, you can be sure that whether it’s a family holiday, a romantic getaway or a honeymoon, a ski holiday in the Alps is sure to please. Don’t forget to try mulled wine – often referred to as Gluhwein in Germany or vin chaud in France and Switzerland, it really takes the chill out and is a great way to wind down after a full day on the slopes.
