Yes it’s that time of year again…..Valentine’s Day is fast approaching! And whilst I don’t necessarily agree with spending money on gifts for your loved ones on just one day of the year (why not every day if you love them so much?) I do condone investing your money spending some quality time together in the Alps!
❤ The Hopeless Romantic ❤
When there’s only two of you, it’s snowing outside and there’s a wood burning fireplace and cosy bedroom inside, well who needs skiing? Small and perfectly formed, Chalet Petite Marmotte is the ideal hideaway for two!
Being a former hay store and now a rustic retreat, Petite Marmotte is an exclusively unique chalet with nothing else like it in the whole of Courchevel. It is an experience in itself and one you will not forget!
This ‘Swiss-style’ gem of a chalet enjoys a much sought after ski in/ski out position on the edge of the Park National de Vanoise. This means if you did decide to leave the love nest to go skiing, the La Granges piste is literally on your doorstep. There is a ski lift just 100 metres from the chalet and it is two lifts away from Courchevel 1850 or a five minute ski down to Courchevel 1650. It features only one en-suite bedroom and a private hot tub in the snow!
Prices start from as little as €6,000 EUR for one week based on two people having exclusive use of the chalet and includes full gourmet catering, open bar, daily housekeeping and an in resort driver service between 9.00am and 7.00pm daily.

A chocolate box property with stunning views, Chalet Baby Bear provides the ideal romantic getaway! Hidden away in private woodlands in a picture-perfect setting in the Les Bossons area of the Chamonix Valley, Baby Bear is alpine chalet chic at its best.
Enjoy incredible views from the whole chalet including the wonderful living/dining areas, spacious terrace and even whilst enjoying a well deserved glass of champagne in the private outdoor hot tub!
Chamonix itself offers not only an abundance of skiing for all abilities, but is a hub for explorers in general looking for something special. With every non-skiing activity you can think of including helicopter rides, snowshoeing, superb spa facilities and more it is easy to see why it is a favourite year round resort in the French Alps.
Why not take the Aiguille Du Midi cable car? A heart-stopping ride taking you 3,842 metres above sea level and providing jaw-dropping views of the towering Mont Blanc!
Baby Bear is designed and furnished to the highest standards, with the perfect blend of rustic and modern. Still available for selected weeks of the ski season starting from just £4,550 GBP!
