Christmas vacation... with flakes

Treat yourself or give the gift of a stay at one of Italy's most beautiful properties to discover new places during the magical Christmas season

Christmas vacation... with flakes

In the mood for gifts? Instead of the usual box to open
we can give ourselves a relaxing break to discover
new corners of our wonderful Italy

Christmas is approaching and people are starting to think about gifts: if those for friends are an exchange of small thoughts when it comes to the dearest people - close family members and partners - the choice becomes more complicated. So why not think of something alternative, a gift that is an experience to be shared and remembered? Ending up in the drawer (of memory) will be a special moment, and not yet another cashmere scarf! It only takes a few days to travel to unusual destinations in our wonderful Italy, discovering new corners and being enchanted by the magic of the Christmas season.

A village of traditions

Every Italian region has its own specific traditions, and at Christmas time they multiply! This is especially true in the South, and one of the most striking times to discover Basilicata is certainly between December and January. If the city of Matera itself has the appearance of a life-size nativity scene, there are many villages that boast a long tradition of art nativity scenes, created by master craftsmen. Borgo San Gaetano di Bernalda (MT) welcomes guests in an atmosphere of pleasant intimacy. Its only seven charming suites, carved out of the spaces of an old oil mill, tell a story of care for the land and love for art and beauty. During your stay, cultural excursions and tastings can be organized to capture the essence of a world that makes authenticity its hallmark.

The poetry of the sea in winter

Beloved by poets and writers, Liguria offers the most romantic side of its landscape during the winter months. Set as it is between sea and mountains, jagged and capricious, it meets the feelings of souls in love like few other places. Villa Gelsomino Exclusive House di Santa Margherita Ligure (GE) captivates guests with the feeling of being at home. A true family villa, beautifully overlooking the gulf and overlooking the Portofino promontory, which now houses only five luxurious adults-only suites. The unique opportunity? To visit the Cinque Terre and Portofino without crowds, enjoying the gentle microclimate that allows Liguria to maintain mild temperatures year-round.

The mountain, classic revisited

South Tyrol is undoubtedly a classic for the mountains in winter, but at the Seehof Nature Retreat di Bressanone (BZ) tradition is revisited. Nestled in a forest and located on the shores of a private lake, the adults-only resort is not designed for skiers or sportsmen. Here the imperative is to enjoy the pleasure of the mountains, in a soft and luxuriously relaxed way, by staying in one of 40 refined suites. In short, all the beauty of the mountains but without an ounce of fatigue. Green light, then, to gentle walks, delicious gourmet tastings, and delicate wellness treatments in the guest-only spa. Nearby Brixen, one of the oldest historic cities in the region, offers atmospheric Christmas markets, elegant shopping boutiques and various cultural events.
