Self-catering’s far from slumming it on ski holidays in Italy. Rather it’s an excuse to visit famously good Italian restaurants morning, noon and night - or have a play with fresh local produce in the kitchen if you fancy.
With your own space, you’re free to spread out and spend the week exactly as you like: relaxing in your PJ’s, sharing vino with friends, heading out to explore this incredible part of the planet – or a marvelous mix of all three.
The best apartments have access to saunas, steam rooms and swimming pools as added luxuries, with ski-out locations making getting about a breeze. If you’re staying in the Dolomites, pick a pad with a balcony, pour yourself a prosecco and you’re in prime position for watching one of the greatest shows on earth: the sunset that makes the craggy rock glow in spectacular pinks and oranges.
With good-sized kitchens, you can pick up local produce from markets and delis and recreate your favourite dishes at home. There’s also the option to ignore your cooking facilities entirely, and test out nearby restaurants instead. To make your stay even more incredible, book a private transfer to resort and have a hamper ready and waiting when you arrive. Helicopter tours of the Alps’ finest restaurants and the chance to book out a spa are only the start of the fabulous things you can fill your week with.
