St. Valentine’s Day was created to celebrate all things love related. Whether you are spending today with that special someone and having a romantic dinner for two, or you’re (happily) alone and heading to a local singles night!

In Chamonix we have many restaurants to choose from should you wish to spoil your loved one or failing that, theres always the “The Lonely Heart’s Club V Day Smash” at Bighorn Bistro & Bakery and an excellent sounding “Power Ballad Night” at Chambre Neuf! Either way, we wish you a very Happy Valentines day!
