New Year Travel: Beaches or Slopes?
It is now 5 days into 2024 and already thousands of people are either on holiday or planning their first adventures of 2024. Those who enjoy winter sports are probably already on the ‘piste’. I hear first hand that the mountains are choc a bloc with sporty types careering down slopes of various degrees. My sources also tell me that there is plenty of snow in Europe and the resorts are almost full to capacity.
For Winter Sporty Types: The Hotel Waldhaus in Sils Maria Switzerland has a very attractive winter ‘Feel-Good Package’, which includes a specially designed dynamic foot and leg massage to revitalize tired legs for the winter sports fans! Being a sports enthusiast doesn’t mean that culture is excluded as they also offer a ‘StradivariFEST’ package which includes in-house musical events. As for the outside sports the hotel has very good details listed on their website including information on cross country skiing along the Engadine valley. This family owned and run hotel is very much in the discreet luxury bracket. One of my favourite touches are the mats outside the bedrooms for guests to leave their outdoor boots.
Whilst these are two opposite types of holidays both will have the same result in getting you ready to face the rigours of the year ahead.
