KRISTIANIA LECH-To be a guest of the Kristiania Lech is to be swept into a world of gracious Alpine tradition blended with a surprisingly splendid modern twist. This family-owned boutique hotel has developed an incredibly keen sense of consistency and atmosphere that has continually drawn ski-lovers in for decades, with its curiously simplistic yet luxurious undertones and infectious charm. Equally as stunning in summer as it is in winter, this is a monument of old world charm fused with modern design, reinvigorating spa elements and gourmet cuisine that would rival some of Europe’s finest restaurants.

Each of the 29 showpiece rooms houses their own stunning collection of contemporary art and authentic antiques, inspiring a feeling akin to living within your own private collection space adorned with warm Alpine touches or hip décor- evoking a sense of private residence rather than hotel room. The comfort factor is incredible, topped only by the crisp clean lines of the mountain views in the distance awaiting your visit.

Whilst dining in one of the three dining rooms, guests are treated to impeccable service and gorgeous views of modern creative works of art, antique pieces, fresh flowers and graceful table linens while refined dishes and delights are enjoyed by the fireplace.

This place of privilege and pampering is truly all about the service. Guests can take advantage of a variety of services, including a personal ski concierge and boot butler who will suit you up and design the perfect itinerary, a reading butler to personalize one’s holiday book collection, a bath butler to prepare the perfect bath spa experience, private nanny, a Lifestyle service attendant who will chauffer you in a Maybach or unpack your suitcase, an in-room spa treatment therapist, and even a pet concierge to assist with all things canine and feline.

AIGLON DE MORZINE- by Erna Low Ski Holidays
Erna Low knew European skiing. In fact, she knew it so well that she parlayed her knowledge into a small escorted group tour in the 1930’s, and transformed that concept through the years into a global powerhouse of a company based on delivering superior, quality skiing experiences around the world. Winter is on its way out, but just in case you haven’t treated yourself to any skiing this season, here’s an opportunity to get that last bit of schussing in and lucky you, it just happens to be at one of the finest residences in the French Apls, the resort of Morzine.

The stunning Aiglon de Morzine is centrally located in the charming town of Morzine, an easy hour’s drive from Geneva. A complex of 12 prestigious apartments, complete with state of the art entertainment systems, panoramic views from patios and balconies, modern kitchens, wood burning stoves, and a cozy chic style that just screams ski holiday chic. And, best of all, it’s available at a great value if you can get away at the end of the month. Hope to see you on the slopes!
