Henry McIntosh discovers the luxurious Cristallo Hotel Spa & Golf, a true gem nestled in Northern Italy’s Southern Alps.
Cortina d’Ampezzo is a beautiful little town nestled in the Southern Alps of Northern Italy. Known for its abundance of winter sports opportunities, luxury lifestyle and stunning views over the alps, it’s a highly desirable getaway that draws affluent jet-setters from across Europe.
The Cristallo Hotel, which has been watching over Cortina since 1901, epitomises the luxuries of mountainside life. Here, guests enjoy year-round access to the splendours of the alps, with winters of skiing through the Dolomiti Superski zone complemented by equally active summers full of golfing and hiking across the picturesque land. That’s not to mention Cristallo’s exceptional spa and wellness centre, within which the seasons are of little consequence.
Recently, The Cristallo Hotel added a new and exciting package to their already extensive list of offers. Their three-day ‘Dinner among the Stars’ romantic getaway affords the perfect opportunity for couples to come and explore the beauty of Cortina d’Ampezzo and the Dolomites, whilst celebrating your romance with unforgettable evenings.
Beginning with a night of fine dining at the hotel’s La Stube restaurant, which was first opened in 1872, you’ll have the chance to enjoy one out of three tasting menus curated by the Executive Chef of The Cristallo. If either you or your partner are a bit of a foodie, this should certainly be an exciting prospect!
