Looking for the perfect white week to conclude this winter season?
Here are some of our favourite destinations where you can spend some fantastic time in Valle D’Aosta, France or Switzerland, between adventurous skiing sites and relaxing SPA moments.
If you still haven’t made up your mind let us help you. But make sure you do get away for a couple of days, it will clear your minds from the busy city life and you will regret not having enjoyed the winter and snow while it was there! Although not everyone adores holidays in the cold and practicing winter sports, keep in mind most places in the mountains are also great locations for food lovers to tour very good restaurants and for those who want to indulge in deep relaxation. Most of the best SPAs in fact are within these locations.
Take a look at the gallery of mountain resorts, to get an idea of what we are talking about.
The perfect place for fun skiing is definitely the ski area of the 3 Valleys, in France: here are more than 600 kms of ski slopes, thus making it the biggest skiing district in the world! At the top of the 3 Valleys is Val Thorens, famous for its advanced structures. Usually skiing locations have the negative point of having old and slow structures and chairlifts. Here you will find the highest resort in Europe, built in a spectacular panoramic building designed by Sophie Jacqmin with the intent of making guest appreciate at its best the view on the mountains and panorama.
Entertainment for the little ones is also something to consider when choosing this kind of holiday. The vacation has to be fun for the whole family of course. Choosing a baby and kids friendly structure can be the best solution, especially if your kids aren’t lovers of outdoor and winter sports. The Valmorel Resort, for example, has a vast list of activities such as cooking classes for kids or environment focused lessons and projects. The SPA in this resort also has a specific wellness plan for teenage boys and girls ranging from 11 to 17 years old.
Another important point to consider is the choice of collateral activities offered by the location you choose. Once you are done with your daily dose of winter sports, you must make sure there are other interesting things to do. Opt for a place where you can also relax with yoga and pilates classes and SPA treatments.
The choice is very very wide, you can find practically anything: the Decleor Spa within the Resort di Cervinia, for example, has studied a specific wellness package for men with five different types of relaxing and energising treatments.
For those who instead prefer to recover from sports with something else rather than meditation or hot steam baths, we have you covered: choose food! For the gastronomy fans, mountain resorts have very much to offer. The Altair Restaurant at the Meribel Antares Resort offers Savoyard specialities at 5.740 feet hight and the chalet is beautifully constructed in wood, pay it a visit!
Another good option is the La Pierra Menta Restaurant in Peisey Vallandry, in the heart of the Tarentaise Valley.
There are so many destinations you can choose from to spend a nice week to salute this winter! Take a deeper look at our suggestions and make up your mind.
