Venture to Espace Killy in French Savoy for Nearly 200 Miles of Slopes

LUXURY VACATIONS | by: SEAN HILLEN

When you’re looking for variety on a European ski trip, consider Espace Killy in French Savoy—named after Olympic champion Jean-Claude Killy—with its almost 200 miles of slopes featuring 150 pistes served by 90 lifts and its twin resorts of Tignes and Val d'Isère. Different in appeal, each of the two destinations has something to offer. The former offers more modern, high-rise, lunar landscaped satellite villages set between the twin peaks of the Grande Motte and La Grande Casse, while Val d'Isère has a more rustic feel.

The World Cup is three months away in Brazil, and with the Summer Olympics taking place there in 2016, the country should be one of the top travel destinations in the world over the next two years.

While you may know about the Rio parade, there are other cities that throw equally massive events, in even more epically gorgeous beach settings such as Bahia and Recife. You may not be able to pronounce their names, but don’t worry, you’re still invited to the party.

Natural Beauty, Captivating Cuisine and Laid Back Luxury on Mexico's Riviera Nayarit

Riviera Nayarit
RESORTS & SPAS | by: JARED PAUL STERN

You could easily spend several years worth of winter vacations in Mexico without going beyond the confines of Cabo San Lucas, Cancun or the Riviera Maya. But to do so would be to miss out on some of the very best scenery the country has to offer. The Riviera Nayarit, stretching over some 200 miles of picture perfect Pacific coastline, arcs up over Puerto Vallarta—a convenient place to fly in to but best left to the cruise ship crowd. That includes over 190 miles of beaches and oceanic wonders, but also several lakes, rivers, mountains and rainforest well worth exploring.
