Our Luxury Experiences

WHAT WE DO AND WHAT WE EXCEL AT

Our diverse selection of ski destinations range from world class ski resorts throughout North America and across Europe, to quiet family-focussed resorts.

Skiing holidays with friends – If you are looking for fabulous skiing with great après or a more relaxed holiday enjoying time to catch up with each other we have the perfect destination/hotel for you.

Family focussed holidays – If the children are happy that makes for a great skiing holiday – we know the best destinations for you.

Skiing holidays for couples – If you want to have a break from it all and just being able to enjoy each other’s company or to meet new friends who enjoy the same interest

Short Breaks & Ski Weekends – Whether you are looking for an extra trip during the season, a romantic break in the mountains, or a few days away with friends, we can suggest a resort that will cater for your needs. Many are within 1½ hours drive from the airport. Ski & Spa – Maybe you will be travelling with someone who doesn’t share your enthusiasm for pounding the slopes, has a more relaxed attitude towards skiing or doesn’t even ski at all; we have a selection of hotels that offer the ultimate pampering experience.

Shhh don’t tell anybody resorts – We have added to our portfolio a selection of resorts and hotels that are widely unknown to the British market each having been chosen for having that little something extra.

Multi-choice holidays – Many destinations offer the opportunity for you to combine a ski holiday with a city break, some retail therapy, a cultural trip, a beach resort or even combine a bit of blackjack in Las Vegas. We would be delighted to discuss the various option

‘Tis the season to think of winter, snow, skiing, Christmas, food and wine!

With winter descending upon us and the temperature dropping, here at Ski Bespoke we are all ready for the start of the ski season with some resorts opening this weekend (some have even been open since the end of the November as the snow has been so good!)

It will not be long until you are on those slopes enjoying the fabulous conditions and if you haven’t already booked for ski holiday here are our top picks for this winter.

Our top picks for 17/18

Fiss, Austria – Perfect for a short break or longer, great skiing which is suitable for all skiers and super hotels with amazing food and spas.

Val Thorens, France – Part the largest linked ski area in the world! You have access to Saint Martin du Belleville, Meribel and Courchevel. Superb for all levels and abilities and budgets.

The CHEDI, Andermatt – The WOW factor and a real ski treat. The hotel is now ski in – ski out and its fabulous Japanese restaurant has been awarded its first Michelin star. The ski area is now linked to make skiing easier.  *Also this winter the Swiss Franc is very good so it is the perfect time to enjoy a Swiss ski trip.

The Festive Season

Now with the countdown to the Festive Season and things starting to get busy with parties, gifts, menu decisions and many, many more things that seem to need to be done this time of year, we have decided to lend a helping hand by introducing you some fabulous products that will make any foodie happy.

While on a ski holiday you can sample some of the best food and drink that country/area can offer and here in the UK we also have some real treasures. These companies like ourselves started small with a Niche product and we thought it would be fitting to share them with you.

Here are our top picks for this Festive Season

The Secret Smoke House – Offering fabulous smoked salmon and trout. Perfect for a romantic Christmas breakfast in bed or the starter to you Christmas dinner.

Tunworth Cheese – This incredible Artisan Camembert is a real delight and in the words of Raymond Blanc ‘The best Camembert in the world!’ and he should know. This is the perfect choice for any cheese board.

Wiston Estate – Super sparkling wines produced in the heart of the South Downs. They offer a great variety of choice, they are the perfect way to start the Festive season or see in the New Year.
