With winter fast approaching here are five of our favourite escapes from private ski retreats and ice adventures to summer in South Africa…
Christmas in the Alps
With snow already falling across the Alps, where is better to enjoy Christmas than a stunning private chalet within easy reach of not one but five ski resorts. With the luxurious Chalet Pelerin as your base, you will be tucked away in the French hamlet of Le Miroir yet conveniently close to both Val d’Isere and Tignes, to discover new slopes and off-piste adventures every day with your private mountain guide, returning to the chalet to relax in the jacuzzi overlooking the valley below, with dinner prepared by your superb private chef.
South African Summer
Escape the Northern Hemisphere’s winter with a chance to discover South Africa in summer, flying into the coastal city of Cape Town – rich in culture with an incredible food scene set to the backdrop of Table Mountain. Spend a few days exploring the vibrant city scene before continuing to the picturesque winelands to discover some of the New World’s most acclaimed wine estates. Complete your adventure on a private game reserve to witness the “Big Five” in their natural habitat.
Ice Driving in Finland
Experience the most thrilling weekend away conquering a unique ice circuit behind the wheel of a high-performance supercar. After an exhilarating test drive, make the most of your time in this winter wonderland exploring breathtaking surroundings accompanied by an expert local guide with an array of activities from ice fishing to husky sledding. Return to the comfort of your glass igloo and settle in for a night under stars, as the sky above is illuminated by the shimmering Northern Lights.
Italian Ski Safari
Italy’s striking Dolomite Mountains are home to some of the most spectacular – and crowd-free – skiing in Europe. Still relatively unexplored by all but the Italians, this is the world’s largest interconnected ski area and the perfect place to test your carving skills on or off-piste. An epic ski safari will take you through magnificent scenery amongst the peaks of this UNESCO World Heritage Site, arriving in a new location each night. After an active day on the slopes, you will be welcomed by the warmth of a privately-owned refugio where world-class wine and a delectable supper awaits.
Escape to the Bahamas
Celebrate Christmas in the picture-perfect surroundings of Harbour Island in the Bahamas, staying at the exclusive 11-bedroom beach retreat, Bahama House. Discover the island’s natural beauty as you scuba dive or snorkel through the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea, catch your own dinner on a deep-sea fishing excursion, experience local culture in the nearby town or simply unwind on an endless stretch of pink sand beach. End each day in true island style with a cocktail in hand as the sun sets over the horizon.
