Looking for Romantic Village (resort) in Alps with excellent intermediate and some advanced skiing for 3 day ski trip leaving from London

Can you recommend a beautiful romantic ski resort in the Alps, with good access from London, with a lot of intermediate terrain and some advanced terrain to accommodate the different ski levels in my family for a 3 day ski trip?  Thanks for your help.

Muerren or Saas Fe.

Arosa is good for a family (see pictures here http://www.epicski.com/t/95320/photos-from-arosa).

 

Get a SleasyJet flight to Zurich from Gatwick or Luton and then hop on the train (one connection in Chur). The town is pretty, and the mountain should have enough terrain to keep everyone happy for three days.

Lech, Austria.

Not lech, not exactly a romantic village, and not eay to do three days , wengen in Switzerland would be a great choice , and can be done by train all the way .

 

Les gets in the PDS is another good short stay possibility .

 

Megieve in France is really beautiful village , but very expensive

Wengen. Murren.

Wengen/Murren/Grindelwald.

 

There are lots of small villages in Austria & Italy that would be good, but for chocolate box appeal, the Eiger/Jungfrau area of Switzerland is hard to beat.

Stay on the mountain in Oberlech - It is actually quite magical for kids. And the skiing is extensive, big, lots of intermediate and hard terrain. Lech is the town on the ground, oberlech is above, and you just ski to Zurs..see video below, we stayed at the Hotel Montana in Oberlech. The 3-day thing is tricky, usually they have the 7-day stretch programs, with half-board. Food at the hotel is fantastic and the tube-disc ride down for kids in the evening from oberlech down to lech is a daily madhouse fun-filled ritual.

Krans in Slovenia,
Fly to Ljubljana easy jet from stanstead, 40 minutes to resort by taxi or hire car,
Great for the long weekend and you have a capital city to also explore
