Most winter getaways tend to split their time between two camps. They’ll often choose between a white or sun-filled cabin, and they’ll also split their time between various activities such as cooking and drinking whiskey. If you’re planning on traveling during the winter season, there are a variety of great ways that you can take advantage of the break.
Europe has plenty of glamorous ski towns that are known to attract high-net-worth individuals. One of these is Gstaad, which is a beautiful resort town in Switzerland that’s known for its old-world charm. It’s also been a favorite of the Monegasque royals, such as Tatiana Santo Domingo and Andrea Casiraghi. If you’re planning on staying in the area, the only place that you’ll want to stay is the Gstaad Palace, which has been owned and operated by the same family since 1913.

Media mogul Ted Turner is one of the largest private landowners in the US, with over 2 million acres of land. Unlike the patriarch of Yellowstone National Park, he doesn’t mind sharing his property.

The property is known for its conservation efforts, which include protecting the Rio Grande cutthroat trout and American bison. It also has five-star accommodations and a world-class spa.
The Dolomites, Italy
