Follow The Snow…
Are you psychic Melissa? Because it’s the ideal time to ask about ski holidays…all of our ski packages and ideas are live on the website and waiting for you to select whatever takes your fancy this winter. I’ve got two suggestions I think will be just your thing.
Butlers on the slopes – Bentleys House, Zürs am Arlberg, Austria
A little nugget of a hotel with glorious mountain views from every angle, in the small exclusive ski resort of Zurs. Your chalet, complete with living room, fire place, dining room and kitchenette, also comes with a private butler (who is your waiter, driver, concierge and PA) and a dedicated car. Your private butler is on hand to serve you dinner in the privacy of your chalet, or you can enjoy a meal in Bentleys lounge and bar. There’s a private spa and beauty salon, a fitness room and a wine cellar that offers wine tastings. If you could design your own ski hotel I think this would be it!
This place really embodies the sophistication for which Gstaad is renowned, expect early 20th century grandeur mixed with ultra-modern touches, scenic mountain views, an atmospheric bar, a fabulous spa and an indoor swimming pool. A highlight is the Michelin star dining at Restaurant Prado, named after the Museo del Prado in Madrid which houses one of the world’s most important art collections – you’ll find masterpieces of a culinary kind on your plate here, a welcome alternative to the hearty ski grub often served at Alpine hotels.
New kid on the block – Cordée des Alpes Hotel
Opening on the 22nd December, this is our newest ski property and it’s set to be a winner. A wonderfully good-looking wooden ski lodge, it blends in with the surrounding alpine architecture beautifully and is close to the buzzy nightlife the resort is famous for. There’s serious skiing on hand too, with over 410 km of groomed runs and 90 lifts across the four valleys. One to stay at before all of your friends.
