Courmayeur, Italy — only a few places in the world could honestly claim to be a better spot for a romantic winter getaway. The village sits in the shadow of fabled Mont Blanc, one of the world’s most beautiful and well-known mountains. It’s the highest peak in the Alps and the European Union.
Most of you have heard of Mont Blanc, and some of you may have been lucky enough to spend some time there. Chances are good that you stayed at one of the big ski resorts on the French side of the mountain. If so, you were probably at Chamonix or Saint-Gervains-les-Bains, both of which are located in the Haute-Savoie region of France. Chamonix, after all, is one of the most famous ski resorts on the planet and the site of the first-ever Winter Olympic Games. Little Courmayeur is on the other, southern side of Mont Blanc, nestled in the Aosta Valley of Italy. The funny thing is that the skiing and other winter sports at Courmayeur are every bit as good as at Chamonix or Saint-Gervains-les-Bains, even though Courmayeur isn’t as well-known as a ski resort.
The fact that Courmayeur isn’t as popular as those other two Mont Blanc ski resorts, combined with the friendly, casual, hospitable nature that Italians have come to be known for, makes Courmayeur a better place for a romantic winter getaway. This little Italian village isn’t completely overrun by huge hordes of tourists, and the people who run Courmayeur hotels, pubs, cafés and restaurants go out of their way to make their guests feel relaxed and comfortable. When it comes down to it, Courmayeur just isn’t quite as pretentious as Chamonix or Saint-Gervains-les-Bains can be. It’s a much more intimate, romantic destination and it feels much more like a typical Alpine village. That being said, there’s certainly no shortage of Courmayeur hotels in different price ranges.
Imagine yourself relaxing with your loved one in front of a warm, romantic fire in one of your hotel’s cozy public areas. Or imagine the two of you gazing out through your hotel window and seeing beautiful Mont Blanc as a backdrop. Then think about taking on the challenging slopes of the mountain or strolling slowly through the village hand in hand with your loved one. What could possibly be more romantic, especially when you consider how friendly and accommodating the Italian villagers are?
