Skiing in Italy is all about the lifestyle. Italian resorts are renowned for sun-soaked pistes, fine wines, and of course, the best food in the world. If you want to enjoy a relaxed atmosphere and pack in some serious skiing, a luxury ski break in Italy will be truly special.
Italian slopes don’t have the same chaos as some of its neighbours. Once you experience the tranquillity here, you’ll never want to go back. You are spoiled with wide and uncrowded runs, idyllic scenery, and glorious sunshine. Lifts are modern and efficient, and if there is a queue, it’s well managed. Spend endless days venturing across large ski areas, often interlinked with other resorts. Whether you want the magnificence of the Italian alps or the magic of the Dolomites, we have luxury chalets in both destinations.
