Italy’s best ski chalet: San Lorenzo Mountain Lodge, Dolomites

 

This luxury ski chalet is one of a kind. Harmoniously blending into the unspoilt forests of Val Pusteria, it was once a hunting lodge dating back to the 16th century. As you are guided around, you can’t help but feel the passion and love which has gone into restoring San Lorenzo lodge by its wonderful owners and hosts Giorgia and Stefano. Sharing their true dedication to the lodge and the Dolomites, a warm welcome and true Italian hospitality await you here.

 

Whichever time of year you choose to visit, as you wander back into the chalet after a days skiing or perhaps after mushroom and wild berry hunting with Stefano in the summer, your senses will be enlightened by the aroma of wonderful home cooked meals. Ingredients don’t come fresher and are often sourced from the neighbouring farms. Wine is a passion here too and something that the hosts are very proud of, you’ll be guided around the wine cellar with its original stone walls and wooden roof, introducing you to a collection of over 2000 wines and the unique flavours of the region.

 

The chalet itself eludes charm at every turn and you’ll notice the attention to detail in the custom made traditional wood furnishings, quality of the fabrics, and elegance of design. The dramatic views over the valley are best enjoyed from the idealistic outdoor whirpool in the private garden and if that’s not enough there is also a sauna and hammam with chromotherapy.

 

This luxury chalet truly is the perfect spot to get away from it all and enjoy good times with friends and family.

Canada’s best ski chalet: Bighorn, Revelstoke

 

After winning this award for the 6th year in a row, if its not already, Chalet Bighorn should definitely be on your bucket list. Sitting at the base of the Revelstoke Mountain, it’s unmistakable. A chalet of epic proportions, space is taken to another level in its triple height living area with roaring fire at its centre.

With windows all the way up the building, as you can imagine the views are unparalleled. Don’t be fooled though, warm tones envelope this luxury ski chalet throughout offering a cosy and welcoming feel.

 

Known as the heli-skiing capital of the world with over one million acres of cat and heli-skiing terrain, of course Chalet Bighorn has its own private helipad too. It would almost be a crime not to make the most if it and glide through some of the best powder skiing there is in Canada.

 

When you’ve had your dose of fresh snow and mountain air, there’s plenty on offer back indoors. From the indoor pool, outdoor hot tub and spa to the games room, cinema room and bar, however in our opinion you can’t beat a nightcap from one of the stunning terraces to round the day off!
