31/ OSTUNI

3 3 / G A R A J O N AY

Ostuni, Apulië, Italy La Città Bianca: that is how they refer to Ostuni. Nearly every wall of this town is painted in white. Even from up close, while walking through the streets, it is hard to spot a touch of colour, apart from the flowers on the balconies or an occasional bright-coloured door.

La Gomera, Canary Islands, Spain Star Wars-lovers might mistake it for the Dagobah System, but in fact, it is just planet Earth. The Garajonay National Park is a humid forest with mainly laurel trees. Its eternal fog, mystical light and mossy trunks give the place an intriguing, swampy feel.

Marqueyssac Gardens.

34/ MARQUEYSSAC GARDENS

Ostuni.

Vézac, Dordogne, France Of all France’s gardens, the one of Marqueyssac is perhaps the most peculiar. Here, trimming has been elevated to an art form, and hedges and bushes stand out with their unique shapes. From smooth and organic to straight and geometrical, there’s plenty to admire, right here.

35/ LE CORBIER

Sun, ski and snow in Le Corbier Whether you’re a blue run beginner or you’ve got some skills on the slopes, there are many factors involved in making a skiing holiday sensational. If you’re setting foot on the snow this season, Le Corbier – found in the heart of Les Sybelles, France’s fourth largest ski area – boasts 310 kilometres of snow-covered slopes for all levels, as well as a wide range of fun, family-friendly activities. What makes Le Corbier so special is not only its breathtaking panoramic views, but its accessibility, with pedestrian circuits that can take you all over the resort. As a Famille Plus ski station, there are countless options available for both younger and older guests. More of a happy hiker than a seasoned skier? Not to worry! Numerous nature activities are on offer, including snowshoe trails or dogsled riding.
