As the holiday season approaches, you may be settling into the coziness that comes with it and fantasizing of winter wonderlands. Someday, while I normally opt for tropical, sunny weather, I would love to book a snowy winter break trip. Here are three incredibly tempting options:
Predicted to be a real hit in 2023, Megève is one of the best winter breaks that money can buy. However, largely overshadowed by the glamourous and popular ski resorts of Val-d'Isère and Chamonix, you can guarantee that you will have relatively free slopes, and for those who can’t stand to participate in any injurious activities, more peaceful spas. The Alpine backdrop against this dainty snow-covered town is enough to grab a fuzzy blanket and nook the next flight!
The Dolomites is the new winter hangout spot, not just for winter sports, but for luxurious wellness spas with heated pools and jacuzzis overlooking the jagged mountainous skyline. The Miramonti Boutique Hotel or the Adler Spa are two unrivalled winter retreats in the region.
The quaint lakeside town of Hallstatt is tucked beneath the feet of the Alps, and though it probably is more a passing day trip than a 3-day destination, it is probably the closest one can get to Santa’s grotto in Central Europe. The wooden houses perfectly stacked on the hill, sloping down to the lake make this an unmissable winter destination. Feel even more festive as you explore in our cozy Vivarini velvet Espadrilles in Magenta.
Prague, Czech Republic
Prague tested my core temperature lower limits when I visited in the depths of winter, but I have to say, this is a city equally as magical in all seasons. Walking over St. Charles’ Bridge in the snow with my hands cupped around the creamiest hot chocolate is a memory I’ll never forget.
