Enchanting family holidays at Cristallo Resort & Spa
The problem with a family holiday is trying to keep EVERYONE happy, isn’t it? What pleases your three year old, will never please you for an afternoon – and then of course there’s the exercise in futility that is keep a teen happy on holiday.
So I was pretty giddy when I saw this from the Cristallo Resort & Spa (which is situated in the picturesque mountain town of Cortina d’Ampezzo, exclusively positioned in the breath-taking UNESCO World Natural Heritage Dolomites – so top marks for location for starters!)
Being in the Dolomites means that families can really take advantage of the great outdoors, and the amazing range of activities are right at their fingertips.
The Giauli Woods Package is a magical 3-night stay that combines the very best in outdoor fun with luxury accommodation and impeccable service. The smalls will be swept up in the magic of the Cortina Woods as they search for fairy-tale Giauli figures that are hidden in the trees on a full-day guided tour; and yes, you can even take the family dog along with you! Totally the stuff of childhood enchantment!
The package also includes a complimentary shuttle service to the picturesque town of Cortina which is something of an outdoor playground for both big and little kids. Bike rides, nature walks, a trip to the Nature Park and ice skating inside the Olympic ice stadium offer something for everyone (be bored with THAT, oh teenagers of mine…) and can all be arranged by the concierge team at Cristallo Hotel. For a more relaxed pace the old town has many cultural offerings and is a great place to peruse at leisure or enjoy a refreshment at one of the many cafés.
After a day of exploring, the family can return to the comfort of Cristallo Hotel and enjoy a delicious dish at hotel’s restaurant. What’s more, Kids under the age of 5 eat for free with an accompanying eating adult when they choose from the dedicated children’s menu.
The ‘Very Important Pets’ package ensures that four legged friends also get a taste of the fantastic Cristallo Hotel service. The package includes a welcome card, a dedicated map outlining beautiful walks in the surrounding area, a dedicated menu and even a turndown service with a special treat placed on their bed as well as a welcome gift (Blue’s sold already…)!
