In the Italian Alps, a local outfitter customizes a cushy inn-to-inn ski trip.
Sun seekers might disagree, but in my opinion there are few better places to spend the summer than the Alps, where you can find dozens of activities to suit everyone from uber athletes to Uber passengers. My family needed a little convincing too, before they’d agree to spend their holidays in the mountains rather than on an island beach resort, so to sway them I called on the help of Dolomite Mountains, a holiday company specialising in tours of the Italian mountain range. Our plan was to mix some hiking and biking with a bit of comfort and culture.
A magnificent art gallery with guest rooms. That’s the unique appeal of this hotel experience in Sardinia, Italy. If you think that a hotel is just somewhere to lie your weary head at night, then think again. The Su Gologone, with its colonial architecture blending into the hillside, reflects traditions of Sardinia through a constantly evolving display of Sardinian art, folkloric costumes and decor.
Challenge yourself on a exhilarating backcountry itinerary in this hospitable Italian region, on a seven-night Backcountry Ski Touring Adventure. Starting from the village of Falcade, on the edge of the Trevalli ski area, you’ll stay three nights in three-star hotels and three nights in simple mountain refuges. Dolomite Mountains organises private departures for small groups of expert skiers or snowboarders between mid-December and mid-April. The guide ratio is one to four and high stamina levels are required.
Italy “Welcome to Nature’s Paradise” should be the national slogan for Sardinia, Italy. Sardinia’s Selvaggio Blu, is easily the most spectacular and most scenic trek in all of Italy. Situated between the glorious Mediteranean Sea and high rocky planes of Golgo, this trek offers spectacular views. The Selvaggio Blu manages to be one of Italy’s best kept secrets for unspoiled nature, despite its claim as the second largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. It’s a short flight from major cities in Italy, thus making for an easy stopover on a trip to Italy.

The rolling Alpine foothills of Veneto have long provided refuge for Venetian nobility seeking relief from the searing summer heat. For over a thousand years, members of one of the wealthiest and most influential empires in the world constructed private villas in the hills, and brought a love for culture and the arts still seen in the local towns and villages.
Cortina in undoubtedly Italy’s most exclusive destination. This pretty and historic mountain town is overlooked by spectacular peaks of the Unesco World Heritage Dolomites whilst the town centre is similarly dominated by the 70 metre high bell tower and encircled by grand 19th century mansions.
Love can mean many different things to many different people but something we have discovered here at H&L is that the universal language of love is food.
At the summit of a small hill in the Veneto pre-alps it is rather surprising to come across a solitary vending machine under a wooden shelter. This however is no ordinary dispenser, nor indeed an ordinary hill for that matter. The goods dispensed are full size bottles of Prosecco and the hill is the famous Colline del Cartizze.
