Exceptional villas curated by our experts
A contemporary ski resort that's maintained its medieval charm, Kitzbühel’s chocolate box chalets are dwarfed by the fearsome peaks of Hahnenkamm and Kitzbüheler Horn that rise up around this timbered Tyrolean town.
One of Europe’s earliest ski retreats, the global glitterati have flocked to this confluence of three alpine valleys since the turn of the century - when royalty first frequented Kitzbühel’s old Grand Hotel. While Kitz may be renowned for the most famous ski run in the world, The Streif - the vertigo-inducing downhill ski race that occurs every January on Hahnenkamm mountain - there’s gentle greens and wide, forgiving blues winding through the flank of forested mountain that cater to every level.
Head out on a ‘ski safari’ - a combination of lifts that enables you ski for nearly 100 miles without having to walk a step. Thankfully, you won’t have far to go to your chalet - skiing right up to the door. Relax with a well-earned soak in the sauna, before settling down by a roaring fire, the smell of cinnamon and freshly brewed Glühwein in the air. Have your personal chef serve up course after course of Tyrolean classics showcasing the region’s finest ingredients, from plump saddle of veal, to local cheese and cured meats. Round off the evening with a glass of Austrian wine in the hot tub, the twinkling lights of the village sparkling beneath you.
