In the mood for an ultimate Winter Getaway? Do you adore couture, Italian tailoring, world-class shopping, spa days, and perhaps a bit of skiing or snowboarding? We have a superb winter holiday for you that all of us at LuxeGetaways are excited about this season, called “Shop In, Ski Out,” and you might just get all of your shopping done while you are there.
The famed Four Seasons Hotel Milano and Four Seasons Hotel Megève have partnered to offer guests indulgent shopping in Milan’s exclusive and vibrant Fashion District, which is just outside the hotel doors. When you have shopped your heart out, rejuvenate at the divinely relaxing spa before your drive up to an epicurean retreat and mountain experience in the glamorous French Alps.
Starting with a stay at Four Seasons Hotel Milano, discover the quality of what “Made in Italy” in Milan truly embodies. The hotel’s coveted location in the heart of the Fashion District provides immediate access to the world’s leading couture houses and best Italian tailors, making it the ideal location for Christmas shopping. Four Seasons Hotel Milano Guests can enjoy the city’s festive spirit as they wander through numerous boutiques with glittering window displays, or take a break to enjoy a cappuccino in one of the iconic coffee shops. The Four Seasons Milano is also famous for its holiday decorations like the urban chalet designed by Artistic Director Vincenzo Dascanio; and it has become a winter destination of its own, especially while enjoying afternoon tea.
Following your immersion into the heart of Italy’s capital of fashion, a customized itinerary can be created for you on your 3.5-hour drive in an SUV car rental provided by the Hotel’s car partner Joey Rent. The Hotel’s Concierge Team is able to tailor an itinerary based on guests’ interests. Stops along the way may include visits to Turin, with suggestions on where to taste the famed white truffles and red wines. Or perhaps a stop to tour Venaria Reale, noted for its magnificent 16th century royal palace.
Once you have arrived in the heart of the Alps for your winter holiday at Four Seasons Hotel Megève, you can enjoy endless recreational options such as snowboarding, skiing, and mountain biking on more than 100 groomed snow runs. You might even want to book a dog-sledding expedition with a professional musher as the hotel will have its own sled dog pack on site. Or perhaps you’d like to go snowmobiling in the fresh snow along the beautiful pine tree forest. No dirty four-stroke engines here; these are the first electric snowmobiles in France.
Of course, you might opt to do nothing at all. Curl up at one of the cozy fireside settings and outdoor terraces with views over the valley and mountains and admire the stunning panorama over a cup of hot cocoa or something stronger to warm you. Three dining venues with panoramic views, including the two Michelin-starred restaurant Le 1920, feature both traditional French dishes and exceptional modern creations by Executive Chef Julien Gatillon that will tempt you. For those looking for a romantic moment, the hotel can provide a “heli-safari” to the glacier at Les Diablerets in Switzerland, to enjoy a gourmet picnic with a breath-taking view. And perhaps this is the venue for that over-the-top wedding proposal?
The Four Seasons “Shop in-Ski out” winter getaway is available from November 15, 2018 to the end of February 2019, and can be organized from any of the two properties with custom-made itineraries by the Concierges.
