Wintry Enjoyment and Fun on the Pistes

A magnificent glistening carpet of white as far as the eye can see and, above you, a brilliantly blue sky – as spectacular as winter can be! And you barely know where to begin: high on a mountaintop or down by the frozen lake far below, riding through the countryside in the back of a horse-drawn sleigh or quietly sipping on your coffee tucked away in a cozy café in the heart of the historical district…

The best solution is to give everything a try, of course. How marvelous it is, then, that European Castles & Historic Hotels provides you with all the opportunities you could possibly desire.
