      Winter in Courchevel

      Summer isn’t the only season for travel as winter months bring blankets of snow to the French Alps—one of the most beautiful regions in the world. The Courchevel ski resort holds true to France’s romantic reputation as many flock to enjoy the breathtaking views, fine dining, and world class skiing. If you’re planning to take advantage of the fresh powder this winter, Courchevel could be the perfect destination for your next getaway.




      Luxury Hotels

      At each of Courchevel’s villages, named after the four altitude levels of the resort, you can enjoy the comforts of luxury living. But at the highest altitude, Courchevel 1850, the palatial hotels and Michelin-starred restaurants keep you living the high life. The five-star L’Apogée hotel boasts a chic, trendy ambiance with spacious rooms overlooking views of the valley. The new Barrière Les Neiges Hotel sits on the slope of the Bellecôte mountain, allowing skiers easy access to glide down to the lifts right from the heated outdoor terrace. There are also multiple chalet options like the Shemshak Lodge, which features a pool, steam room, and gym to enhance your stay. Stay at the intimate Cheval Blanc Courchevel to find elegant and inviting suites with ski-in-ski-out access to the slopes.




      Fine Dining

      In between trips down the slopes, you’ll be able to feast on decadent cuisine assembled by world-renowned chefs. At Azimut, you can taste local delicacies by Chef and owner François Mouraux, who creates accessible dishes with upscale quality. One of the resort’s favorites is Le Chabichou, a two-Michelin Star eatery with elegant gourmet dining to complement the traditional décor. To see and be seen, Les Verdons is the place be with its extravagant menu and relaxed, social atmosphere.

      Skiing

      The main attraction of Courchevel is its unparalleled skiing for recreational skiers and experts alike. One of the largest lift-linked places to ski in the world, the Les Trois Vallées has over 170 lifts with Courchevel visitors calling the Saint-Bon valley home during their stay. Travelers get to enjoy the landscapes while coasting the local slopes, like the Courchevel 1300 ski jumping hill built for the 1992 Olympics.




      With the numerous reasons to explore all that Courchevel has to offer, the winter season will be packed with visitors looking to live in the lap of luxury while they embrace the fresh powder. Events like the the impressive International Festival of Pyrotechnic Arts and the 3 Vallées Enduro competition will also draw in hundreds looking for entertainment during their holiday. As the weather in France keeps the snow falling, Courchevel may be the best place to embrace the cold during your next winter vacation.

Since the 1970s, countless wineries have sprouted up throughout the area with the region providing the perfect soil and climate for rich, quality flavors. Wineries all over the city offer tours and tastings for you to sip from your new favorite label. You won’t be able to leave Napa Valley without experiencing the tasting menu at legendary restaurant The French Laundry. But if you have a taste for classic Japanese dishes, Miminashi might be a hot spot worth trying.

              Safe Social Distancing

              As Californians begin to adjust to new rules and regulations on where they can and can’t go due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many are seeking options for getting out of their house in a safe way. Places like restaurants, bars, movie theaters, gyms, bowling alleys and salons have now been ordered to shut down by Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and California Governor Gavin Newsom. However, there are still a number of safe ways Angelenos can participate in social distancing activities in Los Angeles.

              Virtual Happy Hour

              Just because bars and restaurants are closed doesn’t mean you can’t still enjoy happy hour, with apps like Zoom and Houseparty gaining popularity for uniting groups of friends for a video celebration. Pour yourself a drink and toast the camera for a fun way to stay social during social distancing.

              With so much indoor time on your hands, now may be the perfect time to become an expert in the kitchen. Cooking is a great stress-reliever and can boost your creativity by trying out something new.

              Live Streaming Music Sets

              Many musicians have taken to Instagram Live to continue performing for massive crowds, each in their own home. DJs like Diplo and DJ D-Nice have made waves through the quarantine by spinning playlists for fans.

              Low-Contact Sports

              While the NBA, NFL and MLB have all ceased operations, that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy your own sporting events with select low-contact activities. Sports like tennis and volleyball are great for staying active, with the proper precautions in place to minimize spreading germs. Even more casual sports like frisbee or badminton are great for a quarantine break.

              Biking

              Take your bike out for a ride to enjoy Los Angeles’ springtime weather. Places like Santa Monica, the Venice Beach boardwalk or Echo Park are perfect for enjoying the fresh air at a safe social distance.

              Dog Park

              Plenty of LA citizens have their pets to worry about during the statewide Stay at Home order. For those with dogs, a visit to the dog park might be just what you and your pup need to clear your mind. Dogs are not known to contract or carry COVID-19, so them playing with other dogs is perfectly safe as a social distancing activity.

              Road Trip

              Why not take the extra time on your hands and go for a drive? If you’re road tripping with a friend, wearing face masks helps keep your germs to yourself along with making use of the backseat and cracking the windows for proper ventilation.

              Swimming & Jacuzzi

              Anyone with swimming pool or jacuzzi access is in luck, as the CDC confirms that the heat, humidity and chlorine will inactivate the COVID-19 virus. A properly-maintained pool or jacuzzi is perfectly safe to lounge in during the statewide quarantine.

              Jogging & Walking

              One of the easiest ways to get some fresh air during quarantine is to go for a walk or jog in your neighborhood. This social distancing activity gives you just enough exercise and allows you to take in the Los Angeles weather safely.

                  Experience L Horizon

                  Palm Springs has classically been known as a desert haven where Los Angeles elite escape for mini vacations filled with fine dining, shopping and most importantly, relaxation. The L’Horizon Hotel and Spa has maintained the city’s prestige through hosting guests for a private, luxury experience with their intimate bungalows and indulgent spa treatments. Guests step into a world of exemplary accommodations at this lavish boutique hotel.




                  Photo: L’Horizon Resort & Spa Palm Springs Bungalows

                  The Horizon

                  Built as “The Horizon” in 1952 by William F. Cody, an architect that helped shape the iconic mid-century modern architecture of Palm Springs, the hotel quickly became a celebrity hot spot. During the 1950s and ‘60s, it drew Hollywood elite like Marilyn Monroe, Betty Grable, producer Jack Wrather and a number of US Presidents to come experience the sprawling, three-acre desert sanctuary.




                  In the Heart of the Desert

                  Los Angeles designer Steve Hermann was brought in to revitalize the property in 2015 while still keeping its mid-century character intact. The original style of the hotel is now combined with modern and vintage furniture to create a nostalgic yet contemporary space for a whole new generation of trendsetters. Hermann’s addition of an open-air spa and alfresco restaurant SoPa added even more to the attractive vacation spot. The welcoming interior creates an air of residential luxury leaving guests to feel right at home in the heart of the desert.




                  The Bungalows

                  The 25 bungalows throughout the property are designed with handpicked decor and custom finishes to create an intimate space filled with comfort. Entering into their bungalow guests will never have to remember a room number, as each domain is personalized with a gold, etched name plate. Exposed wood, marble accents, and stone walls bring natural touches to the room against its mountainous desert backdrop. The indoor-outdoor feel is enhanced by glass doors that provide plenty of natural light for a tranquil stay. Guests can also lounge on their own private outdoor patio or reach the ultimate relaxation with an outdoor shower using lush Le Labo bath products.

                  The Residence

                  One of the most impressive aspects of L’Horizon is its signature presidential suite The Residence–a secluded oasis formerly home to Hollywood entrepreneur Jack Wrather. The more than 3000-square-foot habitat comes with a private, full-sized pool and yard. Unobstructed views of the surrounding landscape deliver eye-catching views of the natural, mountain terrain. The Residence can be booked as a one-bedroom accommodation or upgraded to the full two-bedroom home, both options leaving guests to enjoy a wood-burning fireplace, wet bar and luxury amenities.

                  Peaceful Ambiance

                  Outside of lounging in the spacious bungalow rooms, the hotel boasts an inviting indoor-outdoor Spa for pampering guests in a peaceful setting. From massages to facials to aromatherapy, relaxation is guaranteed with services customized to fit each guest’s desires. Other activities like private personal training, yoga classes and guided hikes add an element of fitness perfect for any guest wishing to stay active during their getaway. The onsite restaurant SoPa is also a welcoming draw, with a refined dining experience in an intimate atmosphere. The garden-esque outdoor seating creates an enchanting setting where a flavorful, local menu of European and Californian dishes please the palate thanks to Michelin-star Chef Giacomo Pettinari.

                  The Location

                  Aside from the number of amenities throughout the property, L’Horizon is also located within minutes of Palm Springs’ bustling downtown. Restaurants, nightlife and shopping are some of the main attractions for visitors taking advantage of the city’s offerings. The area is also home to multiple casinos, museums and design studios creating a unique landscape for exploring the classic destination.

                    Experience Summer at The Bungalow

                    The Bungalow has a reputation for being one of Santa Monica’s most buzzed about hot spots.

                    The Bungalow Santa Monica

                    As guests enter The Bungalow Santa Monica, they are immediately transported into what could be a sophisticated house party, complete with a ping pong and pool table. It’s easy to mistake the bar itself for the home of a close friend, as guests are free to roam in and out of the property’s numerous rooms and lounge locations. The charming, kitsch table arrangements and vintage accessories round out the look, giving the space the feel of a venue that’s been around for decades. Between the indoor bar, complete with a flat screen during game time, and the front patio deck decorated with twinkling lanterns and often featuring live music performances, there’s something for everyone as guests mingle about the space with drinks in hand.

                    The Bungalow was conceived by nightlife impresario Brent Bolthouse as a neighborhood bar with a luxurious flair that fits in perfectly with the city’s culture of casual refinement. Attached to Santa Monica’s Fairmont Miramar Hotel, their impressive Exhale Spa, fitness center, and Lloyd’s Barbershop stand alongside The Bungalow in providing hotel guests with whatever they may need during their travels, especially if it’s a refreshing cocktail. Whether they’re visiting for business or pleasure, guests have the ideal hotel amenity of being just a short walk away from one of the most popular bars on the Westside.

                    The Bungalow Huntington Beach

                    With the resounding success of The Bungalow Santa Monica, Bolthouse expanded the brand into its newest Huntington Beach location. Huntington’s bustling Pacific City retail hub acts as the perfect environment for the new locale as it complements The Bungalow Santa Monica’s signature beachside positioning. The two properties are similar in style, but still uniquely different. The Bungalow Huntington Beach location united with the nearby Bear Flag Fish Co. for their culinary needs, offering patrons an appetizing menu of exclusive bites. People-watching and beautiful sunsets come standard at both spots however, with Orange County and Santa Monica surf culture permeating the vintage scenery.

                    From out-of-town visitors to local Santa Monica natives, the Bungalow brand has been cultivated as a welcoming yet trendy venue guaranteed to entertain guests with their variety and charm. Pop in on a Tuesday night for a live folk music performance or stop by on a Sunday afternoon for sangria and mimosas after brunch. No matter the day or night, The Bungalow brand never fails to impress while rising over and above to differentiate itself from the typical LA bar scene.
