Searching the mountains for the perfect intimate retreat isn't easy, especially as most chalets cater to families and larger groups of guests. If you're trying to plan a romantic escape then you'll want the atmosphere and the setting to be just right.
Now there are definitely plenty of hotels that can offer a cosy escape for two but when it comes to somewhere a little more private the options are reduced. Luckily at Alpine Guru we've been scouring the mountains for the best properties and have come up with the perfect pads for mountain romance.
This Mazot for two overlooks the world renowned ski resort of Verbier. It's a rarity in the fact that it's a one bedroom free-standing property, perfect for an intimate getaway.
For those looking for something a little different nothing beats the high-end experiential destination of Bulgaria's Rhodope Mountains. Villa Gella is a sanctuary of luxury and despite being a big private house it can be very well suited to romantic sojourns. The family who run the property love to spoil guests and you'll find them to be very accommodating.
This former hay barn has been transformed into a small luxury lodge for two near to the slopes in Courchevel 1650. It's operated by the well regarded Le Portetta hotel and the service is, as one would expect, top notch and very discreet.
Just outside central Chamonix sits the picturesque hamlet of Les Bossons - it's an intensely private area, especially considering it's in a world-famous ski resort. Baby Bear is ideal for couples looking to make the most of a popular resort whilst still getting in plenty of alone time. Plus it has an outdoor hot-tub, did anyone order Champagne?
