Top 10 Most Popular

With unforgettable mountain scenery and chocolate box accommodation, Swiss resorts promise a picture perfect getaway. Book into one of Zermatt’s luxury hotels or chalets and ski together alongside the jaw dropping Matterhorn (if it's good enough for Royal couple Wills and Kate, it’s good enough for us). Fall in love with St Moritz’s gorgeous lakeside setting, and with each other, on a horse drawn sleigh ride through the woodlands, then treat your beloved to a spot of shopping in the designer boutiques.

We love romance oozing from the Dolomite resorts with their jaw-dropping scenery and high-end vibe. They also tend to be a lot less crowded if you want a quiet spot on the piste to yourselves. If watching the sun set across Cortina d'Ampezzo’s legendary surroundings doesn’t get you in the mood for romance, we don’t know what will. You will have to travel across the pond to get to lovely Lake Louise, but the sights you’ll wake up to after a stay in one of the iconic hotels will make the journey worth it.more below

Top 10 Ski Resorts for Couples

Sit back with an Aperol Spritz and watch the sun turn the Dolomites vivid shades of pink and orange. It’s hard to think of time better spent with your better half after a day of feel-good skiing. The Hidden Valley’s the epitome of such skiing – bringing you face to face with the area's iconic craggy rocks and taking you far, far away from the daily grind. Ski all the way down and a horse tows you back to civilisation - dreamy. Don’t forget you’re in the land of La Dolce Vita: Couples in the mood for good food might want to pack a larger pair of salopettes… We’re talking proper pizzas, gourmet gnocci and much, much more to feast on from your tavolo per due.

Zermatt’s oozing so much charm you fall in love with everything you see: The chocolate coloured chalets, the shops filled with actual chocolate, shaped into tiny Matterhorn’s and of course the actual Matterhorn – vast and gazing over all. The ski area’s bewitching too; couples with a penchant for pow have some spectacular off piste to sink their skis into, while the Theodul glacier has Europe’s highest and most scenic pistes. Wake up early to watch the sun rise over the Matterhorn massif and later on, book a table for two in a gourmet restaurant – the streets are full of them. They’re brimming with jewellery shops too… if the mood takes you.

There’s something about Morzine – maybe it’s the gorgeous tree lined pistes, linked to the Portes du Soleil ski area that just seems to go on forever. Or it could be the homely feel of the town, with its old school alpine buildings, friendly bars and cafes. Not having to spend hours on the transfer helps – because in a place like this you don’t want to lose time cooped up together in a coach. You want to be skiing over to Switzerland for a proper fondue a deux, curling up by the fireside of your chalet or hotel and exploring the sights and sounds of this old, and distinctly loveable mountain town.

Couples with a thing for classics will adore St Moritz, the original ski town. Winter tourism began here in the Kulm hotel – where the only problem is that if you book one of their plush rooms or suites, you mightn’t want to leave it. Drag yourselves away and you’ll find an achingly romantic resort – Narnia-like forests, glittering lakes, old-school chapels and soaring peaks that'll make you feel like two tiddly dots on the landscape. Plus the shops on iconic Via Serlas make a trip to Tiffany’s seem pale in comparison if you’re planning to pop the question…

Ringed by alpine giants over 4000m high, this diddy Swiss village is a feast for the eyes, and its local dishes are a delight to dine on - which can be just what the doctor ordered for a romantic week away. Not forgetting the skiing, which is snow sure, varied and giddyingly gorgeous - whether you're a pair who prefer pistes, park or powder. Unleash your inner children on a rip roaring toboggan run down the mountainside. Then nab a bench by the fire at the dü fondue restaurant, and sip wine while Astrid produces a dinner for two that’s cheesy in the very best of ways.

We go all gooey eyes over Zell’s landscape: The great lake that freezes over for ice skating, the snowy forests around it, the hills that roll on for miles. Spend your week together pottering about on the local slopes of the Schmitten, or venture over to Kaprun for the Kitzsteinhorn glacier’s pistes, powder and panoramas. For luxurious lodgings it has to be the iconic Grand Hotel, which juts out into the lake with uninterrupted views from its private balconies. There’s oodles to explore in and around the town, but true romantics will want to start with a pootle along the promenade by the lake.

Everything from wide, cruisey groomers to knee deep off piste? Tick. The chance to amble down the riverside as the sun sets on Arlberg peaks? Tick. Days ending in a stonkingly posh hotel where all your whims are catered for? Tickety Tick. To really enjoy the area, get a guide to show you where hardly anyone ever skis, and have the mountains to yourselves. The evening atmosphere’s rather refined, with a focus on excellent food and service. And on a clear night the stars are something else.

For couples who like big skiing and big après, Val’s a corker. Share some of the greatest pistes on the planet, then unwind with drinks and music in a slopeside bar. You’ll find chalets galore if you like to socialise with others later on - or high end hotels if you prefer living in your own bubble of luxury. There’s always Frojo on hand for engagement / anniversary / "just because" jewellery purchases (they do private viewings for couples). And with torchlight and moonlight ski evenings, spas and Michelin starred restaurants, you’ve every opportunity to do something special in the Savoie.

This one’s a looker: Close up you’ll see Crayola-bright medieval coaching inns, with the Wilder Kaiser Mountains looming in the distance. There’s a feel of fairy-tale romance to the place, with horse drawn carriages clip clopping down cobbled streets. Spend your days racing each other down the Streif, dipping in and out of shops and cafes or going ga-ga for the Schwarzer Adler’s rooftop pool. It’s a recipe for a terrific week together in the Alps, and if you’re like the majority of couples who stay here, you’ll soon be back for seconds.

You, your special someone, and Mont Blanc in your back garden. Couples with taste for adventure will fall truly, madly and deeply for this-year round mountain town, where there’s always something different to do together. Explore a new ski area every day, ski the magnificent Vallee Blanche or try your hands at cross country, snowshoeing, ice climbing or any of the other millions of activities on offer. Just don’t miss the top-of-the-world feeling at the Aiguille Midi viewing platform, where you can peer over the French, Swiss and Italian Alps.
