Valentines in Verbier, where better?

If it’s not a ski-induced adrenaline rush that gets your heart pumping, then perhaps it’s a romantic alpine retreat with the one you love for Valentines in Verbier? Nothing says ‘I love you’ more than a cozy mountain getaway. If grand gestures are your go-to Valentine’s day tradition, then we have a hearty selection of ideas to set your mind racing.

Firstly, you need the perfect chocolate box chalet – Chalet Nyumba. We challenge you to find a more ‘Swiss’ ski chalet in the whole of the Alps! Perched in the dizzying heights of Verbier, Chalet Nyumba is the perfect mountain bolthole to escape with your soulmate. We guarantee you will feel completely immersed in the romantic charm exuding from Verbier below you.

Secondly, you’ll need some ideas to wow the lucky recipient of your alpine affection. Perhaps something simple like heart-shaped pancakes with chocolate-dipped strawberries, amongst a rose petal scattered breakfast table and a single red rose laden lovingly across each place setting, with snow-capped peaks as your backdrop?How about a magical alpine dog sled ride to a private mountain picnic in a remote part of Verbier, where you will find a pure snowy paradise and just your loved ones company to enjoy? We said picnic, but what we really meant was a snow carved picnic table, complete with fur throws, oysters and a private butler to serve you snow-chilled Champagne. Sounds incredible, doesn’t it? Could this be the perfect opportunity to pop the question? Is an alpine engagement something you thought was only possible in your dreams? We can make this happen.

A common decorative feature in Swiss ski chalets, the heart is the symbol that many associate with the Alps and at the time of year when love is in the air, it could not be more appropriate. We fell in love with Verbier a long time ago. Our love affair with it grows stronger each year and put simply, our hearts belong there. Shall I compare thee to a summers day? We find comparing thee to a bluebird powder day much more fitting.
