As featured in Daily Telegraph’s Ultratravel Magazine.

Setting the tone nicely for the winter ahead, leading Italy specialist Merrion Charles has curated a series of totally private luxury ski itineraries in the Dolomites taking in remote, crowd-free ski routes and hidden hotels, chalets and restaurants – including the brand new 20-bedroom Locanda degli Artisti in Val di Fassa by the owners of renowned restaurant Rifugio Fuciade, set to open any day. The hotel will feature a restaurant with a prestigious wine cellar and bedrooms named after different artists and featuring their work (Mario Schifano to Giovanni Segantini). Each has its own wellness area with a sauna or steam room, and offers easy access to the slopes of Arabba and Marmolada, as well as Val Gardena, Val Badia and Cortina.

“I am thrilled, proud and honoured to be mentioned in ‘Always Italy’ – a fabulous new publication by Frances Mayes in conjunction with Ondine Cohane.

I would highly recommend anyone to purchase this beautiful, informative and highly researched ‘encyclopaedia’ about Italy. Beautifully illustrated, written from the heart and the perfect gift for any Italophile!”
