Easter skiing in Switzerland!
While the Pearl girls took themselves off for a spot of sunshine and skiing in the beautiful Swiss Alps over Easter, they marvelled at what a place this is for romance! Whether winter or summer, the Swiss Alps are truly breathtaking. We stayed in the picturesque village of Wengen, in the Jungfrau Region of Switzerland. Around here there are some wonderful places to get married or spend your honeymoon. You could get married at the "Shilthorn" - the famous James Bond 007 location from "On her Majesty's Secret Service", which sits on a summit and has breathtaking 360 degree views over the snow covered mountains.
You could honeymoon by taking the famous train ride to the Jungfraujoch mountain - named the "top of Europe" - and then stop en-route back down to stay on the mountain surrounded by stunning landscape at the cosy Hotel Bellevue in Kleine Scheidegg, (http:www.scheidegg-hotels.ch). Or, if you fancy being in the hustle and bustle a little bit more (but not too much) you could stay further down the mountain in Wengen, a charming, picture postcard, car free village where we recommend the Hotel Regina (http:www.hotelregina.ch) for traditional alpine luxury.
Finally, if you fancy something more modern in style and design, we suggest staying nearby in Adelboden at The Cambrian. Listed with Mr & Mrs Smith hotel directory (http://www.mrandmrssmith.com) this hotel would make the perfect honeymoon stop, whether you want the winter thrill snow action, the summer serenity for walks, or simply to enjoy the spa while taking in the views!
Here are some photos of the areas described to wet your appetite and have you dreaming of a holiday if nothing else. Now, back to work ... a busy summer of weddings at the ready... and where are those swiss chocolates?! ....
