It’s the same every year. We all have big plans to get the present buying out of the way by November and the freezer crammed full of turkey and Christmas food, but somehow nothing seems to go to plan. Some family members don’t know what gift they would like; others keep changing their mind almost daily; it’s just so frustrating trying to please everyone. However, it’s not too late for you to say “I’ve had enough. This year we’re going away” and book yourself a break where you will be looked after for a change. Why not consider something along the lines of a luxury ski chalet holiday in Verbier from the likes of White Blancmange?

OK, so it may be getting rather near to Christmas itself, but it’s still not too late to book a last minute deal and look forward to a snowy festive break.

You’ll find holiday companies on the internet who specialise in providing everything you could possibly need to make you feel pampered over the festive season. They can offer everything from luxury outdoor hot tubs, dedicated members of staff to provide the catering and snow covered luxury chalets to please everyone. If you go for one of the larger chalets that will accommodate your whole family, you may even get access to your own private fitness facilities with things such as a fully equipped gym, sauna or steam room and Jacuzzi or hot tub to enjoy at your leisure.

It does all seem very tempting. Imagine not having to get up at the crack of dawn to prepare the turkey. Imagine spending the day doing things just for you instead of being tied to the kitchen producing a never ending supply of food and drink. Obviously it’s not something you would want to do each year, but as a one off it could be just what you need to end the year in spectacular mountain scenery in the snow.
