Where to stay

this Holiday Season PRIMLAND RESORT

Blue Ridge Mountains

18 |


Come fall, the Blue Ridge Mountains are a sight to behold with their smoky peaks seeming to undulate from a distance. For those seeking to experience this section of the South – renowned regionally for its leaf-peeping and other outdoor activities – take it all in from Primland Resort, a 12,000-acre luxury mountain estate of log cabins and treehouses located right above the Dan River Gorge. Part of the Auberge Resorts Collection, Primland strives to have all guests connect with nature – no matter if you’re the hiking, artistic, or fishing type. This approach starts with the accommodations. The resort centers around the Lodge, comfortable yet elegant with its twin fireplaces and wine room and offering access to Primland’s key aspects from dining choices to the Auberge Spa to the theater and observatory. Those wanting a greater degree of intimacy will find it among the Pinnacle and Fairway Cottages. Although their name implies something small, Primland outfits each with vast interiors. Pinnacle Cottages – named after the Pinnacles of Dan – invite you to lounge with two living areas centered around open-stone fireplaces, private decks, and rooms with individual balconies. The Fairway Cottages, located closer to the golf course, present a stunning view of the blue-green mountains in the distance, all while combining fieldstone fireplaces, a deck ideal for dining, and rooms optimally positioned for watching the sun rise and set. For living closer to nature, the Tree Houses sit above Dan River Gorge, pairing the luxury of king-size beds and wooden decks with views of the Kibler Valley. The Mountain Homes take this atmosphere a step further, situated in a more secluded location. Dining choices, wherever you choose, highlight regional flavors. The resort opts for local ingredients – some even grown in its own garden – across a spectrum of cuisines. Open all day, the 19th Pub lives up to its name with more casual fare spanning a selection of international dishes while providing moonshine for a literal taste of the region’s bootlegging history. The Stables Saloon takes you above the

resort’s former horse stables to present a traditional Southern menu paired with music – including live bluegrass concerts. In the Lodge, the Schlumberger Wine Cellar lets up to 10 guests at a time tour flavors from the world’s finest vineyards. Along with all restaurants, Primland presents an extensive in-room dining menu, letting you create and savor a private meal from your living quarters or deck. | 19

Primland’s rustic yet majestic accommodations serve as your starting spot to exploring this region of the Blue Ridge Mountains. From here, you’re your own compass, with the resort presenting an expansive array of activities to direct your stay. Go on an adventure along the region’s trails and alongside its winding streams, where you might have a chance to spot wildlife. If you’re someone who prefers to wait and see what bites, bring along your gear for some fly fishing. Those with a passion for the extreme will further find it among the surrounding first-growth forests. Head to the scenic yet challenging trails for mountain biking or off-roading, or go at your pace by horseback. Or, observe the woodland landscape as you’re traveling by kayak or paddleboard along one of the area’s crystal-clear waterways. If you’re viewing your vacation as a chance to connect with yourself and your creativity, Primland helps you form a stronger bond. Depending upon the season, delve into your artistic side with watercoloring, wreathmaking, and holiday ornament workshops, study the stars in the evening, or sign up for outdoor movement and medication to feel your stress dissipate under a lush canopy. Activities cover options for all ages. Children stay engaged with curated adventures and activities introducing key wilderness skills. The Blue Ridge Mountains’ distinctive landscape further comes


through the resort’s golf course. Mountain views surround The Highland Course at Primland, constructed to seamlessly blend in with the neighboring landscape. Developed by renowned golf course architect Donald Steel, this 18-hole, Audubon-certified course mimics the experience of playing in the Scottish Highlands while presenting services for honing your skills. Sign up for one-on-one instruction with the resort’s PGA-trained professionals to improve your swing and shots, or immerse yourself in Primland’s Golf School, a comprehensive, one- to two-day program for those serious about advancing their game. Whether you spent your day on the green, trails, or river, the Auberge Spa invites you to unwind with an experience reflective of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Native American rituals enhance traditional spa techniques, while multiple wellness efforts from yoga and meditation to forest bathing help you detoxify with local ingredients. You’ll have the opportunity to select from a menu of facials, scrubs, massages, and wraps, administered by a therapist using organic products and essential oils for a fully revitalizing experience. ■ To Book: | 21


LOPUD 1483 Lopud, Croatia


opud 1483 is a vacation experience like no other. This Medievaldating property was restored by London-based art enthusist Francesca Thyssen-Bornemisza to now house one of the world’s most curious art collections and provide a place for wellness and contemplation. Coming from a family of collectors, Thyssen-Bornemisza first visited Croatia in 1992 to restore artwork damaged by the Balkan war. During this decade-long endeavor, she ventured to the island of Lopud with a local friar, where she spotted the ruins of a monastery and 16th century fortress, which had been empty since 1822. In a following trip with architect Frank Gehry, he suggested she restore the property. Undertaking this project in conjunction with designer Paola Lenti and Zagreb-based architect Rujana Bergam Markovic, Thyssen-Bornemisza strived to uphold its historical authenticity and, at the same time, divided the

22 |


monastery’s original 13 cells into five larger suites. Today, guests sleep within a preserved 15th century complex that once housed Franciscan monks. The history can be felt across the island, through its absence of cars to the wood carved angels originally made for the Villa Favorita museum. Beyond what most would expect from a hotel, guests walking through Lopud 1483 are privy to a collection of Renaissance and gothic furniture and paintings from the Villa Favorita, unseen by the public for decades, as well as Thyssen-Bornemisza’s own collection, TBA21. Guests

live like a collector while staying on a property joined by a Game of Thrones-resembling fortress and a garden home to over 80 species of plants selected based on the monks’ medicinal knowledge. From here, the island’s natural beauty unfolds, through the changing winds, current, and golden evening light over the Adriatic Sea. For retreats to personal holidays, Lopud 1483 is open for stays lasting a minimum of three nights. ■ Photo Credits: Reto Guntli and Agi Simoes To Book:


THE RESORT AT SQUAW CREEK Olympic Valley, California


hen you think about Lake Tahoe, you automatically associate it with skiing. For those wanting to experience fresh powdercovered slopes plus plenty more, the Resort at Squaw Creek serves as your luxurious gateway to California’s Olympic Valley. The location says it all, with tall Sierra Nevada peaks creating a picturesque setting for family-friendly activities throughout the year, as well as gourmet dining, championship golf, a relaxing spa, and, by summer, water activities on the nearby lake. You’ll stay in one of 405 spacious rooms and suite styled with a mountain-meets-modern aesthetic enhanced by fireplaces and large picture windows to amplify the views. The resort provides access to some of North America’s most majestic ski trails. Once the snow begins to fall, the grounds deliver everything a skier or snowboarder could ask for, complete with a chairlift for a convenient ski-in and ski-out experience. New to

24 |


skiing but still want to experience this paradise? A shuttle can take you to the Village at Squaw Creek, where you’ll have a chance to take private and group classes and navigate more beginner-friendly terrain. As well, if you seek to absorb all the area’s natural beauty, the Squaw Creek Nordic Center provides 10km of cross-country trails for all skiing levels. For something more low-key that still takes you outdoors, consider a snowshoe hike to a frozen lake on Shirley Mountain or the adults-only Full Moon Snowshoe Tour, scheduled for full moons during the winter

season. For more family-centric fare, enjoy the surroundings with a sled race, snow fort building, a snow sculpture or painting party, or skating on the resort’s private rink. When you feel it’s time to head indoors, the spa beckons with rejuvenating treatments – including high-altitude adjustment massages – or savor local cuisine from the resort’s spectrum of dining choices while overlooking the landscape. ■ Photo credit: Resort at Squaw Creek To Book:

Luxury Getaway Paris

Audrey Hepburn said it best, “Paris is always a good idea”.


love Paris any time of the year, however visiting the City of Love in the fall just might be my favorite. The cooler air, colorful foliage, and how the fashion changes to leather, scarves, and trench coats. Plus, there is a certain magical glow that comes with the changing of the seasons. Imagine the sound of soft french jazz playing in the background as you walk hand-in-hand with your lover along the bank of the Seine River or through the colorful tree-lined paths in the Jardin du Luxembourg. Romance sparks through your entire body as you breathe in the cool Parisian air. Start your day at Café de Flore, one of the oldest coffeehouses in Paris, with an espresso and warm croissant in St-Germain-des-Prés, the center of La Vie Parisienne. Spend your afternoon exploring the many art galleries and boutique shops. You must take a moment in between shopping and gallery hopping to enjoy a glass of Bordeaux at Café de Paris. When you desire something more luxurious, walk down the famous streets of Champs-Élysées and Saint-Honoré to shop for the latest high-end fashion. The City of Love turns into the City of Lights with it’s lively nightlife. Start your evening with a romantic dinner at La Maison de la Truffe - a true truffle lounge, where fresh black or white truffles may be added to any of your dishes. After enjoying an amazing dinner, head to Hôtel Costes Bar, one of Paris’s trendiest spots for an apéritif. Afterwards, make your way to one of the many underground jazz clubs, as you find yourself lost in the music. End your evening with a late night stroll to the Eiffel Tower as you watch it sparkle over the city.

Explore & Indulge Napa Valley I

t’s no secret Napa Valley is one of the world’s premier wine regions with it’s beautiful scenery and legendary world-class wines. What you might not know is just how amazing the autumn season is in wine country. For several weeks during this time, the vines turn yellow and red, the air becomes cool and crisp, and the wonderful smell of grapes grows even stronger. This magical time of the year is my favorite to visit Napa Valley. What really attracts me the most about this place is the people. Remember, Napa was built by farmers who grew up on the land that just happen to love drinking wine. Now those are my kind of people! These same farmers are at their busiest every fall, otherwise known as Harvest. Napa becomes alive with excitement and celebrates the grapes reaching their peak ripeness. It is a wonderful time! My favorite section of Napa is the northern part, Calistoga. Calistoga is a charming town of luxury resorts, Bed & Breakfasts and natural hot spring spas. I highly recommend staying at Solage, an award-winning luxury resort, restaurant and spa. This resort was created to reflect its hometown spirit - small town charm with urban sophistication. Enjoy an afternoon at the spa, with renowned Calistoga mud and mineral water therapies. There is no need to leave the resort to find amazing food. Solbar is my favorite dining spot for breakfast and dinner in Napa. One of the best ways to really see Napa is to start your day with an early morning bike ride. The morning air is cool and quiet as you breathe in the 360 degree picturesque views of the many miles of rolling vineyard hills. Afterwards, spend your afternoon touring and tasting some of the world’s best wines. I highly recommend checking out a couple of my favorite wineries, Quintessa and Seavey. Quintessa is a unique blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Carménère grapes. Depending on 36 |

the vintage, it may include some or all five of the varietals grown on site. This winery is a must. Book a private tasting experience in an all glass room overlooking the property. The views are breathtaking! Seavey is a small 200-acre family-owned historic winery with a beautiful stone building dating back to the 1800’s. Their signature Cabernet is crafted for classic Bordeaux-style richness, finesse and balance for cellar aging. Book a private tasting with Javier, who will treat you like family, as he takes you through the winery’s history, and may even offer you a tasting of one of their exquisite vintage Merlots. This winery is a charming hidden gem! Part of the Napa charm I love so much is slowing down and appreciating each delicious sip. Salute! ■ | insta: @kate__benson
